Connection APM2.6 to Raspberry Pi 3 with Mavproxy

Early, I worked with APM2.6 with Raspberry Pi B+, Raspberry Pi A+ and all works fine.

Now I try to connect APM2.6 to Raspberry Pi 3 and Raspberry Pi Zero and I obtaned the next problem:

1) I tryed to connect with usb port and command

sudo mavproxy.py --master=/dev/ttyACM0 --baudrate=115200 --out=127.0.0.1:5005 --cmd="wp load mission.txt"

2) I tryed to connect with telem port and command

sudo mavproxy.py --master=/dev/ttyAMA0 --baudrate=57600 --out=127.0.0.1:5005 --cmd="wp load mission.txt"

and

sudo mavproxy.py --master=/dev/ttyS0 --baudrate=57600 --out=127.0.0.1:5005 --cmd="wp load mission.txt"

And allways I see next result:

pi@raspberrypi:~/f1/go $ sudo mavproxy.py --master=/dev/ttyACM0 --baudrate=115200 --out=127.0.0.1:5005 --cmd="wp load mission.txt"

Connect /dev/ttyACM0 source_system=255

Loaded 5 waypoints from mission.txt

Log Directory:

Telemetry log: mav.tlog

MAV> Waiting for heartbeat from /dev/ttyACM0

So, mavproxy writes, that waypoints are loaded! But, when I check it using Mission Planner I can't see points. It writes, that points are loaded, but they are not.

Help me please to find the solution! Thank you!

  • Also I think you're trying to access the wrong device - ttyACM0 isn't correct for raspberry.  Try ttyAMA0 or ttyS0.  Ideally you should disable the bluetooth and use AMA0 as detailed in the link you've posted or here:

  • MAV> Waiting for heartbeat from /dev/ttyACM0

    ^^ This means you haven't got any connection to the FC yet.  'Loaded 5 waypoints' just means mavproxy has loaded them from the file mission.txt on your disk, not that it's loaded them to the FC.

  • Stephen, thank you for answer, but

    when I try to upload mission inside my python script, it's looking like this:

    ...

    child = pexpect.spawn("sudo mavproxy.py --master=/dev/ttyACM0 --baudrate=115200 --out=127.0.0.1:5005")

    ..waiting for heartbeat

    child.send('wp load /path_to/mission.txt\n')

    it is not working too,

    but with RPi A+ and RPi B+ with Raspbian Wheezy it works fine.

    Here is thread about same problem, but they hasn't find solution, only downgrade from RPi3 to RPi2 =)

  • It's a bug in MAVProxy - you can't load waypoints via the --cmd="wp load mission.txt".

    There's a bug report at https://github.com/ArduPilot/MAVProxy/issues/142
