I am having a difficult time simulating parachute deployment in simulation using gazebo. I am using QGroundControl to set the parameters and using flight termination to trigger the parachute like the example in the tutorial says. The issue that I noticed is that the parameters that are meant to be changed are present in a Pixhawk but not for a gazebo simulated drone. I was wondering if anyone knows what I am missing?
What I’ve done:
- changed CBRK_FLIGHTERM = 0
- changed each PWM_MAIN_FUNCn = parachute
- tried in PX4 v1.12 and v 1.11
- px4_sitl gazebo_if750a
- PX4 Autopilot v1.12
Thank you in advance
