No RC input on ArduPlane

Well, yet another beginner problem :wink:

My board is NAVIO2 with arduplane setup.

When in Mission Planner I don’t see signal from RC receiver

I have to use PPM encoder for my RC receiver.

This seems to work from the RC receiver - NAVIO2 connection standpoint

I do get:

pi@navio:~/Navio2/Python $ cat /sys/kernel/rcio/rcin/ch1
pi@navio:~/Navio2/Python $ cat /sys/kernel/rcio/rcin/ch1
pi@navio:~/Navio2/Python $ cat /sys/kernel/rcio/rcin/ch1
pi@navio:~/Navio2/Python $ cat /sys/kernel/rcio/rcin/ch1
pi@navio:~/Navio2/Python $

proper output for all channels (above example from ch1)

When I connect to mission planner I can see some data like gps, etc but no data from RC receiver. (In fact I am also not getting battery voltage. as well but I’ve described this in I’ve described this in another post to this forum).

Is this arduplane configuration issue / mission planner configuration issue?

Please help with step by step diagnostic guidelines.

Please help the beginner :wink:

Please run the following:
sudo update-alternatives --display arduplane

and make sure that you selected ArduPlane binary for Navio2, not Navio+.

Thank you, yes this was it. I’ve selected 3 for Navio2 and this works now!
