@ThomasSFL I would like also to report several very successful landings like the three landings shown below.
However we still like to improve the device and we hope that we can work together.
In conditions where the sun is really strong we still have several landings where the IRLock failed to recognize the beacon.
One of the main problem is that we don't know during descent whether the IRLock has recognized the beacon or not.
I know we can't transfer this via MAVLINK since the protocol has no more room for such information.
So might it be possible to directly get this info out of the PIXY via the additional pins. Like a HIGH or LOW signal just representing found beacon or still don't see beacon.
That would immensely improve the development and error handling during flight without looking every time after landing at the logfile to see how well the beacon has been recognized.
The HIGH or LOW signal can either be measured by the PIXHAWK directly or by a companion computer in my case.
So is the firmware that is currently on the PIXY opensource can I have a look and even change the suggestion by myself?
