Trying to Odroid XU4 Companion running with pixhawk

Hello,

First if this is posted in the wrong place feel free to redirect me to a better forum.

I've been following this tutorial.  I've got a FTDI cable connected as described (without the +5v connected) and that seems to be working.  I've set the baud rate as described.  When I get to the section to enter the command "mavproxy.py --master=/dev/ttyUSB0 --baudrate 1500000 --aircraft MyCopter" here is what is shown through the terminal:

odroid@odroid:~$ mavproxy.py --master=/dev/ttyUSB0 --baudrate 1500000 --aircraft MyCopter

Connect /dev/ttyUSB0 source_system=255

no script MyCopter/mavinit.scr

Log Directory: MyCopter/logs/2016-01-25/flight6

Could it be that I missed something while installing the packages listed in the tutorial?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • I connected the Odroid to a network that had internet connectivity today and it worked.  Do I need to have access to the internet for my Odroid to run mavproxy properly?  Or did I misunderstand the DNS issue?

  • Developer

    It's failing to resolve the DNS name to get the terrain data.

    what version of MAVProxy are you using and ArduPilot?

    mavproxy --version

  • Hi Loren, it seems that initially it works well (otherwise you wouldn't get parameters, heartbeat, and mode). Are you running Ubuntu 14.04?

    • Yes I believe so
