Other ground stations not working?


(alandal) #9

found this page :http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/skyrocket.html#using-other-gcs-software. Towards the page end, it has the following:

The SkyViper uses MAVLink2 by default, which doesn’t work with some older GCS software (such as Tower). To use those GCS versions you need to change the parameter SERIAL1_PROTOCOL to 1 from the default of 2. That will allow MAVLink1 GCS implementations to connect. As the SkyViper uses UDP broadcasts you can connect from multiple devices at once.”

Ah right, sorry about that. I changed that some time ago and forgot I did it…

Missing this step was my problem with tower as well.
Tower development seems to have stalled which is sad because it still seems to be the best GCS for android. I don’t think we are missing much without MavLink version 2, but it would be nice to add RTP to allow viewing the video stream from tower. Has anyone gotten video to work with QGC?

I’m still having trouble setting waypoints from QGC.

I have successfully made and flew 15 missions at -12 using QGC beta. I am still learning and testing features and general parameters in QGC. I would like to know how to automatically turn on video. camera and rotate SV. in flight path.At this point when I send it on a mission I use the controller to start record.Also I could never get the mission to load unless I first turned off the transmiter then uploaded to SV. I am getting about 5 min flight time and a distance of 2100ft at 10mph. Its pretty sweet!!

After many missions I can no longer load missions in the skyviper. I get the following message

Any help would be great, thanks

Please provide a telemetry log (from your GCS).

Yours,

Well, that log definitely seems to cover the problem you mentioned.

This could be explained by having multiple GCS on the same network
segment. e.g. both Tower and QGC running at the same time. Are you doing
that?

It could also be explained by some parameter changes - have you modified
many parameters from stock?


(Dean) #17

No, I run only one ground station,Qgroundcontrol. But I have it installed
on my android tablet as well as my phone.I have run skyviper app and
Qgroundcontrol at the same time.
As for parameters changed, radio signal strength. From 5 to 8 and mode
button changes for drift and circle functions.


(Kevin) #18

I have tried changing the Serial1 Protocol to 1 but still have the same issue, anyone else?


(Albert) #19

Greetings!
I am wondering if you have been able to get the onboard camera to display in the Tower app, and if so, how you made this happen.
Thank you.


(Dave) #20

No. Closest to that was displaying it in a Windows Laptop using VLC. It works but it’s laggy.


( .) #21

according to the wiki,

live video can be viewed through a SkyRocket app (Mission Planner video support coming soon)


(Dave) #22

Yea, I think that’s understood it’s showing the video in the embedded window in Tower that is in question. This is supposed to work in Mission Planner also thru a VLC link but while I have it working in the VLC App I get errors in Mission Planner when I try to enable it thru the Cntrl-F>VLC menu


(Olivier Brousse) #23

Don’t know the errors you are getting, but make sure you use the 32 bit version of VLC. I couldn’t display either via Cntrl-F>VLC menu when I was using VLC 64 bit.


(Dave) #24

Thank you, that’s probably it.


(Albert) #25

OK…thanks for that. Hopefully this will become available in a future firmware update.

Any problems with say having the stock SV viewer AND the Tower app connected to the drone at the same time and flying a mission?


(Dave) #26

That actually does appear to work if you start the SV App 1st and then connect to Tower. There is a bit a delay in the video when switching from Tower to the SV App and if you are in the SV App you won’t get Tower Audio messages. One thread at a time.


(Dave) #27

Thought I would give QgroundControl a try here. But even after selecting the RTSP stream address that works for VLC its a no go. It connects to the FC OK but all I see is “Waiting for video” in the flight screen. Maybe someone with more familiarity with QGC can comment about that.


(Albert) #28

Of course, we could always invest in the brand new, dual monitor, sky viper controller Mk. II.
