DroneKit Sitl on Docker connect HELP

dronekit

(Emantas) #1

Hello everyone, I started working on some scripts for DroneKit , using Docker Containers. I wanted to connect to a GCS (QgroundStation) so I can see the flight path , real time. Although I have no issue running the dronekit-sitl , with output to the gcs , there are still some things that I try to figure out.

Here is the procedure as I do it:

  1. Start the script python script.py
  2. mavproxy.py --master tcp:127.0.0.1:5760 --out udp:127.0.0.1:14551 --out ip_of_pc:14550
  3. Connect to GCS ,and monitor the flight

Do I need to start mavproxy manually or there is a way through Dronekit to do it in the script?
Thanks in advance
