I built a tracker using the ReadymadeRC frame, a recent Pixhawk clone and some radios I’ve used before, calibrated everything and connect it like this:
Mission planner -< USB cable >- Tracker Pixhawk -< Radio link >- Copter on APM
Connection opens, I see both devices on the map, moving tracker manually changes the horizon as expected.
When I arm the tracker by hardware switch, MP says “armed” and then "Failed to update home location (2)"
Moving copter or Tracker correctly updates the position on the map, so what does this message mean? Is it even relevant?
The tracker does not move the servos at all.
While playing around I had two occasions where it seemed to go into the right end position and stop. Could not reproduce. Changing flight modes of the tracker is confirmed in the HUD but nothing changes in behavior.
