"I too am looking to get real time data from the Pixhawk.  Is sampling data from the Mavlink the way to go?  LLA and IMU information is what I am looking for. Thanks!"

Pixhawk Mini - No MPU9250 found 3.4.4 and 3.5 dev

I have loaded Copter 3.4.4 (8a196281) firmware into a Pixhawk Mini and manually assigned the BRD_TYPE to 5.  Now receiving "Check BRD_TYPE: No MPU9250 found".  Does MP not use the MPU9250 motion tracking device? I have another Mini running 3.5 dev.  Does the Master 3.5 firmware make use of it (the error does not show in this ver of the firmware)?  Is it relatively safe to fly with 3.5 dev?Thanks!See More

Hey Sully,

yes this is a frustrating issue here!..so my pixhack with this issue is on it way back to the suppler to exchange for another one as nothing will fix this issue. HOWEVER I went through the procedure of using the beta testing firmware and it works as it by-passes the brd check where there is a failure. The board seems to work..but im not confident with it at all so back it goes to the supplier.

In the mean time, I have ordered and recieved a pixhawk (clone) 2.4.8 from a chinese website including gps etc. Plugged that in an it works flawless, everything updates and works fine. funny this is that it was half the price of the pixhack I purchased!

btw - what are you flying?

Thanks for the info Chad!

 Are they going to send you a refund or another autopilot?  I sent an email to 3DR for an RMA for the 3 that I bought.  We'll see how that goes.

I have a 2.4.8 and may use it.  I'm build a few custom quads and done buying frames.  I built a CNC mill where I can cut my own carbon fiber plates.

Do you know anything about creating a flight plan that could fly to a waypoint, turn to an object, tilt the camera to a defined degree, trigger a camera via PWM signal, then turn and proceed to the next waypoint and repeat?
