Hi all,Am I right in saying that when you have a pixhawk with internal compass and an external gps/compass, that the external will be compass 1, and the internal compass will become 2 ?If so, am I…Continue

"Thanks, that makes sense. In the meantime I started to experiment with Dronekit-Python 2.x running on a Raspberry Pi to get the GPS and barometer sensor readings. As the documentation states the library changed from a MAVProxy extension to a…"

"Yes, to some extend you can program the serial port to output the sensor data you are looking for.  You just need a Mavlink decoder to interpret the data.  This is what the OSD units use to display the visor data.  "

"What sort of information is being sent out of the Pixhawk serial 2 port ?. Is the Mavlink protocol ?."

"I use the serial two from the Pixhawk and decode the messages on the Propeller chip I use.  Works just fine.  I get flight mode, battery levels and direction the flight controller is leaning towards."

Im trying to get by using a servo gimbal to stabilize my raspberry camera, but because the servo has limited resolution, the constant tiny but very fast movement is introducing jello in my photo's. Here is an example:It goes away if I disable the gimbal, because the plane doesnt roll or pitch anywhere as fast as the servo's can move between positions. But of course, without stabilization am not maintaining level camera.So what Id…See More

How to get GPS and sensor data via mavlink/mavproxy

Hi all,Im flying a raspberry Pi thats connected to a pixhawk. The raspberry is mostly used as camera , it has one (and soon several CSI) camera module('s) attached to it. Right now triggering is done by reading a GPIO port thats connected to a pixhawk relay.Now I would like to add GPS and sensor data (angles) to the exif tags. On the raspberry I installed mavproxy and dronekit, and while they work, but there seems to be no simple way to get an external program to obtain any data from them. I…See More
