Beforehand thank you very much.
I understand you updated the image to the latest version but now you are having issues arming and flying the drone. Is that correct?
When you updated the image, did you update the Bios, FPGA and flight controller as well? The latest image requires a Bios, FPGA, and flight controller update to function correctly. Additionally a frame reset and calibration in QGroundControl is needed after all the components have been updated.
You can find the instructions to update and setup the drone on the following link: https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/02-Initial-Setup# flashing
Please also make sure you are using the latest software v1.5.1 that can be downloaded here: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27019/Intel-Aero-Platform-for-UAVs-Installation-Files
Please let me know if this helps or you have any additional questions.
By other hand I also have pieces of replacement and I pick up one computer board and try to update just like the other one, but the problem is that I cant boot the image like the previous one because a library it's missing and looking into the documentary of yocto they suprime that library.It would be great if you could solve this problems and I can continue, otherwise I wonder if you can send me a configuration manual to follow and reach all the factory settings just like the ready to fly Drone before opening the box.
When you say you cannot connect QGroundControl using the hotspot, do you mean you cannot connect your computer to the Aero RTF drone access point?
If you can connect to the access point, make sure the firewall is not blocking the communication. Please try to connect to QGroundControl using another computer.
Also, if you can please provide the output of the following command:
If I could connect to the hostpot from linux ubuntu,
the problem now is that when calibrating the dron with QGroundControl the compass sensor I do all the steps and I mark them in green but it sends us an error that says "before the fault Fail mag 0".
It would be very helpful in response
In which case could you help me restore my image as a factory? before making the start
I was able to connect to the hotspot with the QGrundControl application
but when calibrating the compass sensor sends me the following error:
PREFLIGHT FAILURE: NO MAG SENSOR 0
what could be the mistake?
would there be any way to return to the factory configuration where the dron could fly?
This sounds more like a software setup issue rather than a hardware issue. From the screenshot above, I can see that the FPGA is not flashed to the latest. As I mentioned before, this is one of the requirements in order to configure the drone properly. After you updated all the software did you do a frame reset in Airframe sub-menu on QGroundControl station.
Regarding the compass calibration, there is a bug with the QGC communication between Aero. The Aero will finish the compass calibration and send a message to QGC but that message seems to be ignored.
If you wish to use a previous version of the software, you can download a previous version in download center:
There are other versions if you scroll to the bottom of the page, you will see a section on the left side labeled "Other Versions." I don't recommend using a previous version as there has been many improvements to software and flight stabilization. My peer has sent you a message via email per your email ticket request, if you can please reply to him.
Is there an order in this flashing work? There are 3x BIOS setup and 1x flashing ISO work.For FGPA bios setup how would I know my hardware is computer board or RTF
You can find the instructions to update and setup the drone on the following link: https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/02-Initial-Setup%23flashing https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/02-Initial-Setup# flashing
I recommend flashing the latest image first, v1.5.1. This version already includes the BIOS, FPGA, and Flight Controller firmware. You can find the latest version at the following link:
You can flash the components in the following order:
- OS iamge to the Aero compute board
- use aero-rtf.jam if you have the Aero Ready-to-Fly Drone
- use aero-compute-board.jam if you have the Aero Compute Board only.
- Flight Controller ( If you have the Aero RTF Drone)
Once you flash all the components run get_aero_version.py, you should get the following output:
BIOS_VERSION = Aero-01.00.13
OS_VERSION = Poky Aero 1.5.1
AIRMAP_VERSION = 1.8
FPGA_VERSION = 0xc1
