Building and uploading examples

Hi all,

I’m very new to Ardupilot. I’m trying to build and upload one of the examples, let say INS_generic, on a PixHawk 2.4.8, using OSx.

I followed the guide on setting up the build environment, in particular:

./waf configure --board px4-v2
./waf build --target examples/INS_generic --upload

The build seems like it worked, as I now have the previously empty /build/ folder populated with build/px4-v2/examples/INS_generic.px4. However, when connecting to a serial monitor (e.g. Arduino monitor), and entering “help” command, contrary to what I’d expected, the INS_generic application is not listed.

I think I’m missing something in the basic understanding of the building process, any comment will be very much appreciated.
