Piaxhawk connection

Post by RACEUAV »

Hi there,

I am having an issue trying to connect the hedgehog beacon to the Pixhawk.

I have successfully set up the Marvelmind system and it works well when not connected to the Pixhawk. The signal is picked up consistently and I get a refresh rate of 16hz.

As soon as I connect the beacon's pins to the pixhawk (as shown in section 8 of this guide: https://marvelmind.com/pics/PixHawk_Mar ... Manual.pdf) and turn the Pixhawk on, the refresh rate of the beacon suddenly becomes slower and more inconsistent - frequently skipping pulses.

The GPS data does appear in the Ardupilot Mission Planner software, but it is very inaccurate compared to the dashboard. I have seen other forum posts which discuss this issue, but even after following the suggestions, it is not working.

Has anybody else experienced this or could help troubleshoot this problem? I feel like the MM and Pixhawk are not particularly compatible :?

Let me know if you need any more information. Thanks in advance.
