Blank flight mode, safety config, controller tuning

(ronyv13+) #1


I have been trying to set up pixhawk on qgroundcontrol for fixed wing. I am having problems with flight modes;

  1. First I set up the firmware
  2. I select plane (HilStar, Xplane) from the simulation setup (aircraft confg.)
  3. Mag calibration and gyro calibration is done
  4. Radio calibration - I can not do but the preset values remain ( i had earlier set up the same pixhawk on qgroundcontrol for plane in aircraft conf.)
  5. Flight config, safety config and control tuning are blank - nothing is visible.

Now i can run the simulation and it communicates with Xplane but from the controller, I am not able to switch between manual and auto modes; i have to manually set it from control widget.

Can anyone help or has had similar issues with qgroundcontrol. I want to test the pixhawk in xplane and switch between manual and auto (using the controller)

Using APM for HIL simulation in QGroundControl is likely to not work as it pretty much unmaintained.
