mRobotics Pixhawk / ESP8266 / MavESP8266 (1.1.1 firmware)


I am currently trying to establish a UDP connection via Wi-Fi using an ESP8266 development board.

I am able to flash the software using the NodeMCU flasher, and am able to generate the PixRacer WiFi signal from the firmware and am able to connect to it via my computer.

However, once I establish the connection, when I try to connect via UDP on MissionPlanner, I cannot establish a MavLink connection (the screen just keeps on loading). When I try to /getstatus, there are no packets receiver or sent.

Attached is the guide I used:

Some photos of my NodeMCU board, with soldered points (Vin, RX, TX, Gnd).

Thank you.
