I'm involved with an amazing ardurover/boat project that is kicking some major goals. However, there are a couple of things that I would like to chat about.
1. Remote arming. I know this is possible via MP, however, the times we have tried it, it's failed. The message is "Error: Arm message rejected by MAV". There was a time on the weekend where the boat was stuck on a sandbar and power safety switches has tripped. Pixhawk rebooted, telemetry established and was going to put it into manual as we needed to reverse the boat off the sandbar (about 700m away) but wasn't possible.
2. Is it possible that when the Pixhawk is rebooted, that whatever mode it is in (say auto), we can get it to override the radio transmitter and default to manual mode?
