First post, yay! I’ve been struggling setting up my antenna tracker for quite a while now. I have until the end of winter to get it working, so I was trying to figure things on my own, but I’ve reached a point where I need guidance and advices from experienced users. Attached is the setup I’m trying to achieve. It all “works” except I cannot get Mission Planner to connect to both my plane and the tracker at the same time using UDP. If I launch two instances of MP side by side, one with UDP 14550 (tracker) and one with UDP 8888 (Tango2), I see my tracker one one window and my airplane in the other window (Both have GPS lock).
The problem (I think) is that a single instance of MP needs to see both the tracker and the plane to be able to point the tracker in the right direction (it needs something to track). I’m not too sure, but it seems to me that the only way to connect the tracker in MP is to use a USB connection (the usb can be converted to RF too I think).
I was wondering if there is a config file I can modify in APSync on my PiZeroW where the Airplane MAVlink info would be sent to MP in parallel to the tracker info? Or do I need to rethink the design (meaning using the PiZeroW in Access Point mode will not work)?
Thanks for your help!
