I use an arduino mega as “companion computer” connected to a Pixhawk over Serial 2 (px4 1.8.2 firmware, quadcopter configuration)
There is something strange with the message SYS_STATUS.
All bitmaps “MAV_SYS_STATUS_SENSOR” for
These 3 bitmaps return 0. This is very strange because I can see the value of the gyro without any problem (ATTITUDE message returns correct values). So at least the gyro is detected but it is not showed in the bitmap.
But when I connect QGroundControl at the same time trough the USB port it returns correct values for the 3 bitmaps on the Arduino. Do I need to send an specific MAVLINK command to activate this “MAV_SYS_STATUS_SENSOR” bitmap ?
Am I doing something wrong ?
