just a simple basic question:
Which ros-topic allows me to track the joystick(instead of real RC) in sitl-simulation?
mavros/rc/in is empty
mavros/rc/override is empty
mavros/hitl/rc_inputs is empty
mavros/manual_control/control is empty
mavors/manual_control/send is empty
… I’m out of ideas where to look now…
I mean I can fly my drone in sitl with a PS3 controller fine and somehow these data must be transferred via QGC to my ‘sitl’ px4… but for my ROS-systems all topics I looked in were empty.
I would just like to track these inputs as easy as real RC inputs to enable SITL testing and don’t use the real drone everytime…
Currently I work with the RC channels in my offboard control so I need some kind of help or a workaround - any help is appreciated.
I found this old post: SITL Remote Control simulation
But it seems outdated because normal RC control is working or do I need to think of sending my gamepad-inputs as custom ros message to mimic somekind of RC inputs, instead of working with the joystick control?
