I am trying to connect a Matek F405-WTE flight controller to a ground station over WIFI however I am having issues setting up the connection.
I can load regular ArduPilot firmware onto the board by holding the DFU button when plugging in by USB. However, if I load MAVESP8266 (firmware-esp01_1m) which I believe is required for WiFi telemetry (?), then I cannot connect to the board in mission planner. The manual also says to connect the Tx1 to ERx and the Rx1 to ETx, I can do this however it then stops me from being able to enter DFU mode. Additionally, the manual states to set the SERIAL1_BAUD to 921 which I can do when loaded with regular ArduPilot firmware, but because I cannot connect with MAVESP8266 I am unable to set these parameters?
How do I get this working? Is it meant to be two things flashed onto the board and if so, how would I do that?
Thank you for any help, tips or advice.
