I am using a pair of Reach modules for precision navigation of a small quadcopter, using the usual configuration: 1 static Reach as a base communicating with Mission Planner that injects corrections to the drone through a 3DR radio pair, 1 Reach on the drone for RTK navigation. Firmware and ReachView are both updated to the respective latest versions.
This post is about the connection of the Reach/base to my laptop that is running Mission Planner. For this purpose, up to now I have been using the Reach/base hotspot, that is Reach/base and laptop are connect via wifi and corrections are delivered through TCP. Everything works fine, except that the Reach/base wifi is unfortunately unstable (on the contrary, the Reach/rover wifi works pretty fine, so my guess is that the Reach modules used as base has some malfunctioning…). For this reason I switched to USBtoPC connection, which works perfectly. I also configured the connection as “Ethernet on USB” so that I could access Rechview at the IP 192.168.2.15.
Now (and this is my point), I’d like to feed Mission Planner with base corrections through Bluetooth so that I could comfortably sit with my laptop many meters away from the base. I managed to that easily, but I cannot access ReachView following the same procedure as for the USB case. I wonder if that is possible or not.
Thank you in advance
