QGroundControl "Uninitialized Mode"



I'm trying to write waypoints to my APM board using QGC but I get the error "Operation timed out"


I think it's because QGC says my rover is in "Uninitialized mode".

QGC keeps saying: "Uninitialized, booting up" where it shows you the status of your UAV.


How can I fix this?

Any help would be appreciated.


I'm also using ArduPilotOne (Ardurover).

    I fixed the mode now. There is apparently a bug in the mavlink next command step. I'll try to find it tomorrow. But I did hook up my jtag debugger and got this backtrace so it should be easy to track down.
