There is no official release for the Nano to my knowledge. You may try to use the Jetson TX2 / Jetpack 4.2 extensions I did for APsync. I have no Nano so I cant tell you if it works or not. Note its not an image, you need to install and build the necessary components as described here:

Thanks for answer. Jetson Nano and Jetson TX2 has different architecture. Therefore I think didnt work. But I write there when I try your components.

https://github.com/jmachuca77/companion/tree/nvidia-nano (ı’m not try) APsync for Jetson nano. You may not install apsync if you want.
And you can connect using ttl to usb cablo.
write code : dmesg | grep tty
and then find own connected port ex : ttyUSB0
mavproxy.py --master=/dev/ttyUSB0 --baudrate 921600 --aircraft MyCopter
It’s work !
