I am having a hard time getting my device to RPi to connect to my GCS over wifi. I guess I am not sure how else to do it. I bought the GPS antenna with my navio+, but I don’t see anything that shows how it would connect. So I guess I would connect over wifi. I feel like I am asking a lot of dumb questions, and its frustrating because I usually am able to figure things out on my own. I use google, but there is no where else to go for a navio+ setup other than here. I feel like the site claims that its very beginner friendly but I feel l like there is a lot of info left out or maybe the assumption was made that everyone would know.
One thing I don’t understand is that the port number in the command to start the APM is 14550, however on my GCS software, APM Planner, there is no choice for 14450, i am not sure how to make the software recognize my RPi.
I got connected. However, I am still concerned its not operating properly. If i start the APM on my RPi with the command:
sudo ArduCopter-quad -B udp:192.168.1.8:14550
the APM starts, says ready to fly and starts generating a bunch of characters on the screen. randomly it will state PreArm: RC not calibrated and WILL NOT connect to the Mission Planner.
However, If i start the APM with the command
sudo ArduCopter-quad -A udp:192.168.1.8:14450
it never shows that it is started/running, however I CAN connect to Mission Planner.
I don’t understand why this is. Also, if I go through some of the calibration steps in Mission Planner, and then disconnect, when I reconnect it seems as though I have to go through them again.
Is this true?
I also have my RPi connected to my laptop via USB. Where as before when I was trying to connect I wasn’t. However, both my RPi and my laptop are both connected to the same WiFi network.
