It depends on how you are using it. If you have attached it facing downwards and configured it in ardupilot to use for precision landing, then it will give the distance of your drone from the land. (in meters)
oh, that's very detailed!
thanks you !
@Inv3nt0r1 btw master
do you know who to observe throttle para. within script?
I already did observation of groundspeed, alt. and battery info.
does anyone know if the raw command "mavutil.mavlink.MAV_CMD_CONDITION_YAW" can be used under NoGPS mode?
does anybody know why mavutil.mavlink.MAV_FRAME_BODY_OFFSET_NED doesn't work with Rover? any other command that can send velocity movement to Rover?
Does anyone know how I can send continuous yaw correction to the aircraft without the yaw commands overriding each other? For instance if I want the aircraft to follow me and I am constantly sending it yaw commands for heading correction in accordance to how I move.
does anyone has sent pozyx data to a drone using dronekit and ardupilot ?
I am having timeout exception after a number of wait_ready calls continously untill home locaiton is received. Do any of you know the solution?
Dear All, I am a student. For my Master Thesis i am working on a project where - I am trying to create an indoor (warehouse) environment, in that indoor environment I want to fly my SITL drone and want to simulate the performance. Now I want to create the environment with Gazebo and using ardupilot- gazebo i can put my SITL drone into it. Now to write the autonomous software I want to use Dronekit (because of better documentation ). I really need some help from some one who has experience with similar project. I would really appreciate any of your suggestions or responses. One thing : I am completely new with this stuffs - even new in this kind of communities ..
Hi everyone, i have an interesting problem. Although the mavlink connection is successful, the drone data does not appear in the software and the drone does not move. In fact, the drone is connected and the task begins. However, it seems as if it has never been connected on the mission planner screen. Waiting in case of disarm. Does anyone have an idea about this issue?
Hi all, I have a question. I'm running dronekit on a virtual machine running linux 16.04 and on the same PC I'm running mission planner. I'm trying to connect dronekit via 3dr radio. I'm using mavproxy as the master and then I'm forking out to 2 udp ports as follows:
mavproxy.py --master=/dev/ttyUSB0 --baudrate=57600 --out=127.0.0.1:14551 --out=10.0.0.7:14550 the first --out is for dronekit and the second --out is for mission planner. The master is using the 3dr radio to connect to the drone. I'm able to connect to the drone threw mission planner and am able to send simple mavproxy commands to the drone. When I try to connect a dronekit script to connect to the drone I get a timeout error... after 30 seconds. My dronekit script comment code is: vehicle=connect('127.0.0.1:1455', wait_ready=True) but I get the timeout error. Ia it even possible to connext dronekit via telemetry radio? Or do I have to run it on a companion computer?
is it true that dronekit developers have stooped maintaining and supporting it?
Hey all, I am using Dronekit to get GPS data from Pixhawk to Rpi using telemetry 2 and storing the GPS data in a CSV format on Rpi. I want to change the frequency of GPS (UBlox 7m) data from pixhawk and tried it by changing the SR2_Position parameter to 1 Hz, but it keeps on changing back. I have even tried to change the Telemetry Rates position to -1 in Mission Planner and "set streamrate -1" inside mavproxy.py But the issue still persists, can anyone please help me with this?
Hello i want to get data from px4 using mavlink in dronekit-python? Data which i need is distance sensor Data like Lidar down, up which we can see in QGC like this.
eachine drones is compatible with the dronekit sdk?
Hey everyone, I am trying to use an NVIDIA Jetson Nano with my px4 Pixhawk connected over serial (/dev/ttyTHS1). I can successfully run mavproxy with (sudo python3 mavproxy.py --master=/dev/ttyTHS1 --baudrate 115200 --aircraft file) and I am able to connect and arm. However, I tried this (vehicle = connect('/dev/ttyTHS1', wait_ready=True, baud=115200)) dronekit command to connect to the pixhawk and I am having no luck (WARNING:dronekit:Link timeout, no heartbeat in last 5 seconds). Anyone have any thoughts?

@joshjle Try connect by usb all times. Too is posible that your pixhawk need more time for be ready.
