Community Q&A

@vxj9800, adding support to RP240, how to get a review? how to add a unique id?

  • from dev-team: send a PR!

Slow CI with timeouts this week?

  • yes we had some issues with a few machines
  • a solution would be to start moving to self-hosted runners GitHub actions for a few things
  • another quick win is to move some tests to only run on master instead of each PR
  • @dagar is looking into it

MAVSDK Test descending into the ground

  • The interface for MAVLink offboard changed on PX4 v1.12
  • Dev Team: Let’s fix the regression, and add the missing functionality to MAVLink with another frame
  • Make sure we add this to v1.12.1

Board Support on QGC

Cube Orange support on v1.12

  • @david_s5 tested before the release
  • No one else on the call has tested

Report of props rotating with FMUv5X on v1.12

  • by @mwbb
  • When updating settings on QGC but doesn’t remember which one
  • Dev team: please make sure you can reproduce and open an issue with the steps so we can take a look

PX4 Developer Summit CFP Deadline

How to deal with flight testing?

  • Question by @david_s5, he’s working on a NuttX change that brings in a lot of updates and thinks we should have a wider range of flight testing
  • @dagar Right now we can’t do a complete matrix test, but let’s break it down to what areas changed, and verify what we can on CI, ask for help on the rest.
