Community Q&A

@Jaeyoung-Lim : Move px4io mixing to FMU by dagar · Pull Request #16444 · PX4/PX4-Autopilot · GitHub removes the IO passthrough to save fixed wings in manual mode in case the FMU dies. The goal is to keep things simple and enable new mixing capabilities. We can add back a minimal passthrough mode that just forwards receiver input to pwm output.

Moustafa: Generating transponder_report messages from UTM_GLOBAL_POSITION does not work in simulation · Issue #17109 · PX4/PX4-Autopilot · GitHub He doesn’t have UTM working in simulation because UTM messages that come from its own ID get filtered. In simulation the ids get just filled with zero instead of UUIDs. Each simulation instance needs to have its own unique ID. Using the MAVLink system ID as UTM ID would already fix it for simulation.


1.12 beta is tagged: Release v1.12.0 Beta 1 · PX4/PX4-Autopilot · GitHub
