Hello I would like to control my arduplane via my gamepad / joystick and It will not work because I keep getting this message in qgroundcontrol or other GCS
Joystick support requires MAVlink MANUAL_CONTROL support. The firmware you are running does not normally support this.
how can I add support on my firmware for this?
PLEASE please someone help me I have been trying until im blue in the face and I can not figure this out.
thank you I am willing to buy someone a fancy dinner on me (paypal) if they help me with this
please and thank you
I don’t think you’d get this message from anything other than QGroundControl. ArduPilot requires RC_OVERRIDE support to implement joystick which QGC does not support. I believe Mission Planner supports ArduPilot joystick.
Wieland: MP (mission Planner) accommodates joystick functionality, Very easy to set up and really nice to use.
I use joystick with MP and enjoy it to the point I don’t even use my R/C any longer.
I am a arduboater so my cases is not the same as arduplane or arducopter. But my point is MP facilitates joystick/game pad.
I have a parrot disco fixed wing which has parrot chuck flight board that runs arduplane
I’ve tried using mission planner also and I haven’t had much luck
Is there a way to test and see if my firmware supports rc_channel_override ?
If not is there a way I can add this support by changing some code ?
Thank you very much
I’ll be fixing this up in QGC daily builds soon. So you should get ardupilot joystick support using QGC.
