Intel Edison as mavlink proxy only

Wasn’t quite sure where to post this as the are not a look of Edison posts at this time. I currently have an APM 2.6 connected to a raspberry pi to do the telemetry via 3G. It’s works great.

I am trying to switch out the Raspberry PI for an Intel Edison (smaller) and I can’t get it fully working.

This is what I’ve done:

Flashed Edison with ubilinux: Works

add packages for OpenCV and all the required ones for mavlink

added mavproxy.

Here’s what is working.

Edison Boots up.
Can run --master=/dev/ttyMFD1 --baudrate 57600 --out --aircraft MyCopter
Everything starts fine.

I am getting the state of the APM

Here’s the problem,

When I open mission planner, I select UDP, verify the port number, and connect,

I connect and MP gets the mavlink heartbeat but then it hangs on “getting params”.

I have used screen to watch whats coming over via the uart and the traffic is there and looks good

Just curious if anyone has actually tried this setup or run into this problem.

Thanks in advance.

Did you ever figure this out? I’m trying to decide if I want to use an Edison or RPi
