Hello,

I am using a Pixhawk 2.1 Cube on Arducopter v3.6.4 with a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B running dronekit scripts. What I want to do is takeoff, go to a point and land there and after some time take off and return to the home location. I tried to run it on SITL but was unsuccessful. The quad takes off and goes to the point and lands. But after landing it disarms the motors and doesn't arm again.

What I did was change the mode from GUIDED to LAND in dronekit. I ran the arm_and_takeoff() function but it just refuses to arm. I interrupt the script and then run the code again and it flies as usual but doesn't arm and takeoff once it lands.

Is there anyway to overcome this problem?

Thank you.

Regards

of course is a way : try this to me worked,

https://github.com/ArduPilot/ardupilot/pull/7402

read this:

https://discuss.ardupilot.org/t/flight-mode-changue-failed-copter3-...

an this allows you to continue withmission arter takeof when in you are in auto mode so yo can do,

Auto

takeof

move

land

delay

takeoff

move to the next waypoint

you ned to ask this guy, because there is already a solution for this

https://github.com/peterbarker?tab=repositories

I saw that solution on github but now i cant found it, dont know why.

To allow land functions inside auto, its a solved question, but now i cant found that ,

O, THERE IT IS,

that the solution to this

Hello,

Thank you for the reply,

I looked into the threads you linked but I don't think they will work for me. I am trying to run it on dronekit whereas I think these are for setting waypoints through mission planner or some other ground control software. I tried to replicate it on SITL and used AUTO and RTL modes but I had to change to GUIDED for it to take inputs from the python script. And again once it landed and disarmed, it didn't take off. 

I will contact the person you mentioned to ask more about this topic.

Thank you for the help. I really appreciate it.

Regards

 But to perform that particular action would be enough to 
modify the pixhawk software,with the modification that you
saw. And then you could continue communicating through
scripts with the main board, or not?

Hello,

Thank you for the reply and help.

I don't think I need to dive into the arducopter or px4 firmware to takeoff after landing automatically. I wanted to use the python script keeping the parameters of the pixhawk to fairly default values.

I did find a way but it is not the prettiest solution. I changed the name of the vehicle variable in dronekit and essentially connected the drone again to take it off after landing.

So what I am doing in the script is connecting the "Drone" via the AMA0 port and running the mission and landing the "Drone". Then to takeoff again I changed the name to "Drone1" and connected and ran the arm_and_takeoff command again, then ran the mission and then landed.

If I didn't change the name and just reconnected it, it did takeoff after landing but didn't land the second time.

If there is a better way to do this I would love to know. Right now this is what works for me on SITL and actual testing as well.

Regards,

Sohaib
