I am taking over the setup of an Applied Aeronautics Albatross UAV. I have two RFD 900x modems, one that I connected to a laptop running QGroundControl, the other connected to a Pixhawk 4 (Telemetry 1 port). Both modems have the same firmware and give a solid green light when powered up, indicating that they have a stable connection. However, QGC still just says “waiting for vehicle connection”. I can connect my Windows 10 laptop to the drone via USB and get a connection that way, yet when I disconnect the USB, it won’t default to the modems.
Has anyone had something similar happen? Is there any way to confirm I can send commands via the modems in QGC?
Forgive me if this is in the wrong category – I have no idea if this is a QGroundControl, Pixhawk, or SiK radio issue.
