I am trying to control my Pixhawk via MavProxy on a Raspberry Pi 3 B. I have installed everything successfully, enabled serial port hardware so I can utilize the ttyS0 connection.
Every time I run mavproxy.py, I only receive the following:
Auto-detected serial ports are:
Connecting to /dev/ttyS0
Connect /dev/ttyS0 source_system=255
Telemetry log mav.tlog
Waiting for heartbeat from /dev/ttyS0
MAV> link 1 down
First, should I be concerned that nothing follows the “Log Directory”. Secondly, I am not very familiar with all the tools MavProxy has to help troubleshoot this connection. What should I start with? (If I append --startup, I can see data, but it is gibberish ie. question marked boxes appear in console).’
Thanks in advance!
