I am new to the site and new to doing some development with the ArduCopter.
I have played around with some DroneKit software for Python and Android. I have a fair understanding of it thus far. What I am trying to do is being able to get a ground station to control multiple UAVs.
What my process was is looking at MAVProxy and read up on it. I can connect to a physical drone Iris+ and a virtual copter by following this. I run the instance with this command
sim_vehicle.sh -v ArduCopter -L PLACE --map --console --out <IP_ADDRESS>:14550
It works well and I can connect to it using MavProxy via the following command
Now I can connect to the physical as well with
When I try to use with both mavproxy.py --master=127.0.0.1:14550 --master=/dev/USB0
It doesn't work and I don't even know if it would work to begin with I was just trying.
All in all what i am trying to do is being able to connect to 2 drones and be able to control them with 1 ground control station.
i am very much interested in doing something quite similar? have you also tried running 2 instances of mavproxy and calling the same script?. on both>..
UsGS can do this as far as I know via 3dr radios.
