Control copter with /mavros/rc/override ROS topic

Hi, I’m trying to set motor’s PWM publishing to /mavros/rc/override topic but I get no results and just get the message: "No handlers could be found for logger “rosout”.

I’m using Erle Brain 3 with the default ArduCopter firmware. Running amp.service, ros.service and mavros.service.
Trying to set PWMs using the command below:
$ rostopic pub /mavros/rc/override mavros_msgs/OverrideRCIn “channels: [1500, 1500, 1500, 1550, 1500, 1500, 1500, 1500]” -r 130

Does anyone know the proper way to do it?


Hi @filiperosa,

ROS master is working well?

Paste here the output of:

sudo systemctl status -l ros.service



Hi @LanderU,
this is the output I get:

Is there anything to add on this topic?
I am having the same issue…

I should say when I can do rostopic echo to any topic that is not mavros. When I do rostopic info to a mavros topic i get something like this

erle@erle-brain-3 ~ $ rostopic info /mavros/imu/data
No handlers could be found for logger “rosout”
Type: sensor_msgs/Imu
