How to decode or read Mavlink Messages ??

I am using My PC or Arduino serial Monitor other than using GCS like Mission Planner or QGCS? Any alternate way to Read Data from APM 2.5 Board to My PC or Arduino Serial Monitor.?I compiled ArduMAvlink code and Ardustation2 from http://diydrones.com/forum/topics/can-somebody-please-explain-mavlink?xg_source=activity....last post By Mr.Shyam,I have followed exactly same and it compiled but i am unable to read any Data from APM 2.5 to Either Arduino Serial Monitor or In MP or QGCS ? What am i missing ? Is something Wrong ??

  • Hi Chethan,

    Did you ever get this to work?

    Thanks

    • Hi Chethan
      I think, that Message #0 Hearthbeat is the right Message. But base_mode return value 0 and 68. Thats not a unique Mode.
    • yes i got it working by serial connection from PC to APM borad

      • Does APM board send out heartbeat message automatically after you connected to PC?

        • // Arduino MAVLink test code.

          #include <FastSerial.h>
          #include "/home/sm/Desktop/ardomavtest/arduino-1.0.4/AQ_MAVLink/mavlink/include/mavlink.h"        // Mavlink interface

                      }
                  } 
                  // And get the next one
              }
          }
          i used this code to read mavlink messages from APM to PC 

          • Could you help me?

            I would sniffing Arducopter Mavlink Protocol.

            Use also this code snippet.

            How i can get GPS data from Mavlink connection?

            Thanks

            • hi Bruno 

              I was working on sending visual based information on mavlink with respect to 

              GPS data it was in build in Arducopter code.Try using mavproxy which

               is much more user friendly in terms of data transmission. 

          • I am using similar code too, however this call never return TRUE

            if(mavlink_parse_char(MAVLINK_COMM_0, c, &msg, &status))
