Hello i have a small problem about Gazebo and PX4.
When I launch the simulation via :
make px4_sitl gazebo_typhoon_h480 (it’s an example it does the same with other drones) everything works but I can’t use the zoom with the scrolling button of my mouse.
It is replaced by a rotation move I don’t understand why.
I have recently clone the git repos I don’t know if there is a modification on this side.
I post the topic here because when I run Gazebo alone :
gazebo I have no issue.
The zoom works “correctly” (like what I’m used to find).
I use Gazebo 11.3.
Does somebody have the same issue?
I am having the same issue. Very interested in finding a solution to this!
It could be that you are in Follow mode. Next time you start the simulation, press Escape and try to zoom again.
Sorry for the late answer,
I tried your solution @McKayW but it doesn’t work.
Hello, I’ve just installed PX4 and gazebo on a new computer, and I’m having the same issue with the impossibility to move the camera correctly, that I didn’t have previously.
I tried the “press Esc” solution suggested by @McKayW , but it indeed didn’t work as @Kreace pointed. Any chance someone found a solution ?
Same here, pretty annoying - even on the base Iris model
To resolve this you can go to the sitl_run.sh and add or remove the line at
# Disable follow mode
if [[ "$PX4_NO_FOLLOW_MODE" != "1" ]]; then
Also if you want to change the distance to the UAV on the follower zoom, you can add
user_camera->SetHFOV(VALUE); in the
if(user_camera && !model_name_.empty()) condition in the gazebo_user_camera_plugin.cpp.
Don’t know if you got your answer but it’s easy to change. In Gazebo, go to World/GUI and change the min and max distance. You’ll be able to zoom closer or further regarding to the distance you’ll enter.
I love you with all my soul, you light-being!
Thanks, It worked. By default the min and max were same now I changed it and its resolved
