I’m new to the forum and the larger drone community. I recently purchased a Pixhawk PX4 2.4.8 kit, and plan to build a VTOL drone so I can fly my uncle a bottle of Blatz beer. I’m stuck getting the drone calibrated properly because I’ve run into this issue (Detected 0 radio channels. To operate PX4, you need at least 5 channels - #4 by Sparky002) where my radios aren’t being detected by QGroundControl. I’ve tried the troubleshooting steps from that topic, but to no avail. I’m doing the setup from a Mac, so I’m following the instructions here (Ground Control on a Mac - Ground Control Software - ArduPilot Discourse) to complete the setup.
Since I’ve gotten stuck many times throughout the setup steps, I’m looking for a mentor who 1) can help me usher my project through the finish line and 2) likes beer. I’m a software developer and Madison, Wisconsin resident and we’ve got some seriously good beer with your name on it.
Sincere thanks in advance for your consideration,
