Using windows 10, a pixhawk 4, ardupilot, and mission planner.
I have followed all the directions from https://ardupilot.github.io/MAVProxy/html/getting_started/index.html
I installed Python 2.7, Cygwin 64, and MavProxy. However, I am not able to connect to my flight controller. Whenever I enter mavproxy.py --master=“comXX” --baudrate=YYYY where XX is comport number and YYYY is the baudrate into the MAVexplorer, it returns unknown command. I cannot find a clear answer whether MavProxy is compatible with Pixhawk or if it is it just for APM flight controllers?
If it is not for pixhawks, can you please offer an alternative method of activating a channel 5-8 during flight while still allowiing the TX/RX to have full control over channels 1-4?
