@SamuelDudley thank you, its actually still empty, but I've noticed loading the module inside MAVProxy will read the config.ini inside .cach (python-egg)
ran the web server directly didn't work as well
whenever i try to change flight modes in mavproxy it says unknown command but if i give commands like takeoo and land it works just fine. How to resolve this?

@SamuelDudley ....

Change this line to a new api key. https://github.com/goodrobots/MAVCesium/blob/master/app/mavcesium_default.ini#L10

Tried with new API key... still no map... only dark space

I am trying to use 'long commands' like setyaw and attitude but when I do they are accepted but don't result in any movement from the servos unlike when I use mode ALT_HOLD. Anyone know what might be happening? My test command is setyaw 1 5 0 which I believe should set the yaw to 1 at a 5 degree angular velocity. Am I using the command properly? I'm using chibios SUB 4.0.2 on a pixhawk1
update- it appears setyaw is only for guided mode which isn't supported by sub and attitude is currently broken in sub. If anyone knows how to fix this I can pay $$$
I need assistance
I am following this video to get dronekit working in mission planner in windows through using wsl
when i try to put this command on the second prompt
mavproxy.py --master tcp: --sitl --out --out --out
I get this

ok, solved the module, but the link 1 down is still happening

How are you starting SITL? You should use the sim_vehicle script which starts both sitl and mavproxy.
@jmachuca77 I doing this

I am using two command prompt from windows and one ubuntu terminal version 18.04 with wsl2.
On Windows I installed python 3.7.1 64 bits, and with prompt I used pip install dronekit, then used python -m install --upgrade pip, then pip install dronekit-sitl, then pip install wheel,pip install mavproxy.

Then I went to ubuntu terminal and used pip install dronekit dronekit-sitl mavproxy. After that, I used python, and then import dronekit and then exit().Then did the same import command on prompt from windows.

Now with two windows prompts , the first I used dronekit-sitl copter --home=53.280707,-9.031534,0,180.The other mavproxy.py --master tcp: --sitl --out --out --out then went to mission planner on windows, selected udp, put the right ports, and it connected.
So far so good.
What I cant do is send the script from ubuntu. Ubuntu terminal I navigate to /mnt/c/Users/gusta/OneDrive/Desktop, where my python script is saved, and try to use the command sudo python drone.py --connect udp: to connect,i tried 14550,14551 and 14552, and it does not connect.
What happens is this:
WARNING:dronekit:Link timeout, no heartbeat in last 5 seconds

hi everyone, hope im asking in the right place...so I do all the stuff following the guide for SITL, and then I start it with the map and console; now the problem is that the battery percentage on the map is 0 from the start and the console keep saying: battery warning . Shouldnt the battery be at 100% ?
André Kjellstrup
@giulio.swe2010_gitlab did you configure battery capacity ? - unless you did 0% is possible.
Giulio Rigoni
@AndKe no i did not, but i cannot find the command for that...can you tell me how to do it ? cause I'm only able to find info about voltage and not capacity...
André Kjellstrup

Hi guys, me again. Im still trying stuff on SITL copter and I noticed that the max speed is 10 m/s, I am wrong ? i tried different copters (quad, exa, octa) and changed the WPNAV_SPEED parameter
MohammadAmin Khazaei
You know how many I can palne add mavproxy ?
Amilcar Lucas
Hi friends! Could i check if anyone has any experience with creating multiple streams with --out tcpin:<hostaddr> for mavproxy? Is such a thing possible
Vinicius Juvinski
is missing the port
Jaime Machuca

hello, newbie
i want connect rosetta drone to my pycharm,,
idk how to connect and step by step?
Hello Everyone, I'm a beginner working with pymavlink. I want to find the global position of the copter (latitude, longitude) so that I can calculate the instantaneous distance between the copter and a waypoint. I am currently working on SITL of the Mission Planner with the code running on anaconda terminals. I have searched GLOBAL_POSITION_INT and MAVLINK_MSG_ID_GPS_RAW_INT but I'm not able to use these I'm my code, Is there any example of waypoint following by copter involving this concept?
Thanking you in advance

Hello all,
I have a issue when trying to MAVProxy to transmit telemetry over the internet. My place has 4g lte card installed transmits telemetry over a VPN tunnel. The only problem is that it uses up 100KB/s of bandwidth. Can I somehow reduce the "tickrate" or should I just lower the baudrate on the serial connection ?
