"Also, it's unclear from http://www.maxbotix.com/Ultrasonic_Sensors/MB1242.htm whether it comes with I2C connectors/cables or not."

"Actually since ArduPilot uses px4 firmware it could be a problem for ArduPlane/ArduCopter users.  Cody?"

"Hi Cody, That tutorial is for the APM firmware, not PX4. Turns out the driver is commented out in the cmake/configs/nuttx_px4fmu-v2_default.cmake file. Uncommenting the line loaded the driver. "

Pixhawk PX4 with Maxbotic I2CXL-MaxSonar-EZ2

Hello,I have an I2CXL sonar sensor that I want to use for altitude measurements indoors. I've connected it to the I2C extender that came with the Pixhawk but for some reason the Pixhawk doesn't seem to see it. The PX4 site isn't very helpful, just saying that up to 6 are supported on the I2C bus. I read elsewhere that I need to make driver for it, but the PX4 site doesn't mention this. If anyone else has had this problem, please let me know what I need to do to fix it.ThanksSee More

Pixhawk PX4 Motor Test

Hello All,I am using a Pixhawk with the PX4 firmware. I want to test the motors but for some reason the motor test buttons are greyed out in Mission Planner. I don't know why this is. Everything is plugged in properly. I've seen in older threads that I should be able to test the motors through Mission Planner. Does anyone know why the buttons are greyed out and how I can fix this?ThanksSee More

Hexacopter Testing in GPS Denied Environments

Hi All,I have a hexacopter using a Pixhawk flight controller and Mission Planner. Ultimately this copter will be controlled autonomously using an onboard computer running ROS. Right now, I need to run a quick test just to make sure everything works and to determine flight time. The idea is to start the copter, have it ascend 1 m, hover until the battery reaches some value, then land. I don't have a radio control as it is supposed to be autonomous, so I need to do all of this through Mission…See More
