"Hey Cala, The main reason why is because I already successfully modified the solo with custom software and I would like to find a similar drone to do the same thing to prove that the software is cross-platform however if the drone is too different…"

"If you like Solo why don't you choose that one? I hope pixhawk 2 is only inside the Solo at the moment."

"If you are asking if ArduCopter have the details of what those packets are the answer is no. Those packets are between Solo, controller and the app, they have nothing to do with ArduCopter."

"Francisco, One last question for now.  Would you think the ardupilot/ArduCopter might have in it what I am looking for?  That is where I have recently been looking.  I have been poking around on the controller and drone also...I will…"

Francisco Ferreira replied to DJ Martin's discussion Understanding Communication Links between Solo and Controller
"If you want to control Solo, like flying and landing I recommend that you use the Guided mode and corresponding commands. Stopping the RC stream isn't a very good approach - if you have some problem in your program you won't be able to get…"

Francisco Ferreira replied to DJ Martin's discussion Understanding Communication Links between Solo and Controller
"You weren't wrong. To send commands to Solo you have to use MAVLink. There's other stuff communicating in the controller, like RC data, Solo <-> app, etc. If you didn't understand MAVLink, you should really look at Dronekit."

Understanding Communication Links between Solo and Controller

Hello,I have been building a program to to execute remote commands on the 3dr solo and was thinking it would be simply as easy as understanding mavlink which it turns out I am way off.  There is udp traffic coming from UDP 5005,5501,5580, etc ports and that is just from the controller to the solo and not counting the variety of traffic coming from the solo to the controller.I have built a python script that can decode mavlink message and have manually decoded telemetry data coming from udp port…See More

How To Decode Mavlink Messages Using Python Problem

Hello,I realize there are other posts of others trying to decode mavlink messages but all the examples I seen they are doing it different than I.  Right now I have captured all traffic between my drone and controller and saved it to a PCAP file.  Using tshark it looks like I can strip the entire data payload from the packet and retrieve the mavlink message which just looks like a basic byte array.I already have generated my mavlink python bindings using the mavgenerate tool.python -m…See More

"That specific example may be outdated, I'm not sure. You do have more examples in the repo: https://github.com/mavlink/mavlink/tree/master/pymavlink/examples You are going in the right way, but if you don't want to mess with this…"

"Hey Francisco, I am trying to fallow your advice.  My short-term goal is to just decode mavlink messages from my controller or Drone across a UDP link using your idea and print them to standard output. What I have done so far is I ran the…"
