So I was trying to calibrate my Aero RTF on QGC when I came accross this warning message: "Warning: Primary accelerometer not found".which won't let me go through the calibration process (accelerometer calibration fails). Is there any way to correct this?
Thanks in advance!
Thank you for contacting Intel Technical Support.
Your request has been received and is currently being investigated.
We will get back to you as soon as possible.
So... Apparently, this error only occurs when PX4 is flashed. Just flashed ardupilot and configuring the drone was a breeze...All sensors were detected normally except for GPS but I suspect this is because I'm configuring it indoors.
Hope this gets fixed, as I'd rather use PX4 over Ardupilot.
Thank you for your patience.
Which software version, bios and fpga version are you using?
I would suggest doing a frame reset from Qgroundcontrol once you flash the latest software as mentioned in the wiki setup instructions.

Hope this helps.
BIOS_VERSION = Aero-01.00.13
OS_VERSION = Poky Aero (Intel Aero linux distro) v1.6.1 (pyro)
AIRMAP_VERSION = 1.8
FPGA_VERSION = 0xc2
Aero FC Firmware Version = 3.5.3
About calibration, that's the whole point of this question actually.
I can't get past sensors calibrations 'cause QGC won't detect the accelerometer if I load the Aero with the PX4 as per wiki (in other words, run:
BUT! If I load the Ardupilot instead, strangely enough, it WILL detect the accelerometer and all setup procedures will run smoothly, allowing me to fly the drone normally.
Have you performed a frame reset as I suggested earlier?
You can find the steps in the wiki guide here: https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/02-Initial-Setup# calibration https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/02-Initial-Setup# calibration
Navigate to the Airframe menu and select "Reset" to reset the drone's airframe configuration. Select "Apply and Restart" and restart the drone.
Thank you for the screenshots.
I would suggest you try and calibrate the drone from another computer with Qgroundcontrol and see if the same issue appears.
If the same thing keeps happening you can also try to calibrate the accelerometer using a nuttx shell.
You can find in the following thread somebody who had the same issue and found a workaround with a nuttx shell: /thread/118277 https://communities.intel.com/thread/118277
Changing computers did not work... Tried to do it from 3 different computers with no success...
HOWEVER working from Terminal DID work!!!
Used QGC's Terminal with command:
commander calibrate accel
which resulted in this callibration process:
