Pixhawk doesn't fly when using OFFBOARD Mode and ROS

Today I wanted to use the OFFBOARD example on my quadcopter. I tested it before on the gazebo simulation and everything worked fine, but on my real quadcopter it doesn’t work. The quadcopter is able to arm, but when i set a position … nothing happens.

Currently I use an ESP8266 for the telemetry connection and on the rqt topic viewer i was saw that the quadcopter is able to switch into the OFFBOARD mode. The position is also published into the
mavros/setpoint_position/local topic.

Any ideas how to solve the problem?
