For any end users out there, have you gotten the latest RPi image to work with a Pixhawk 1?
My current set-up is a Raspberry Pi 3 with the latest APSync image, a Pixhawk 1 and a Surface Pro 4. The Pixhawk and RPi are connected via USB. The Pixhawk and RPi are independently powered off a 12V battery.
When powered and booted up, the RPi creates a stable access point and I am able to login and see packets sending and receiving. I am also able to SSH into the RPi through the Wi-Fi.
However, I am not able to connect to the vehicle through any GCS. I have tried Mission Planner and QGC. At most, I have an intermittent connection through QGC where it is connected for a second, then disconnects, then connects again.
I have opened up port 14550 through my firewall settings and tried the latest stable firmware versions of Rover and Copter. Same results.
I have a feeling it has to do with my network settings somehow, but I'm not quite sure how else to troubleshoot this one. Any other ideas?
Edit: I also went through the "Testing Regime" in one of the text files for the common Ubuntu directory and got the following:
That "SRTM Download failed" error kept repeating.
