  • @Chris: Blue light at Pixhawk means it is not locked to satellites but blue light at GPS means it is locked to satellites.

    @Esteban: Yes I checked the light's meanings before. Unfortunately the issue is not that apperant to solve.

    I started to think that there is a hardware issue. I made tens of different trials and couldn't solve the problem.

  • @C K:

  • C K,

    My understanding is that the blue LED does not indicate a GPS 3D fix. Only a green LED indicates a 3D fix. I get a blue LED when I am using flight modes that don't require GPS. Sometimes the LED will change to green anyway when a GPS 3D fix is achieved.

  • Hello,

    While my Pixhawk was working perfectly suddenly a GPS connection problem started. I can see that my GPS is fixed to the satellites because it's blue light is flashing. But Pixhawk seem like it doesn't conect to atellites because it's blue light doesn't turn to green. 

    Maybe it is a hardware problem??

    I will be greatful for any help.

    You may see the video related to the problem attached:

  • Hi everyone, I would like to know if i can use a Qground firmware to build a VTOL and use the mission planner to mapping? Cheers

  • Developer
    There is no price difference between the 1MB and 2MB versions.
    It's just an updated chip.

    Pixhawk 2 alpha versions shipped this week, so we are not far off.

  • You may want to look into a PixHack. Pixhawk with updates.
  • Hey there! Does anyone know the difference in price from the 1 mb and 2 mb 3DR Pixhawk models?

  • Hi there!

    I am from Ukraine. We use Pixraptor for our drones and wondering do you guys know where to find datasheet for this pixhawk mode? Thanks in advance!

  • Rodney Johnson microhard is more advanced, it is more configurable, it is very nice data link but still i couldnt configure on pixhawk

Flashing in Pixhawk

Hi everyone,Recently I've got my first pixhawk CUAV v5+. I'm amazed to see one thing that through one USB port only we can flash code and read the logging data. To understand how is it working I started looking schematic but didn't understand anything. Can someone please tell how is that working?
