We are running a BlueROV2 with advanced electronics package smoothly with QGC on a Windows topside computer. We would like to use MAVproxy simultaneously with QGC to send additional ROV control messages, but have not yet found step-by-step guidance for getting running with MAVproxy. A little help for some beginners??
We tried following the directions here, and entered ‘mavproxy.py --master=tcp:192.168.1.1:14550’ (and various other options including 0.0.0.0) at the MAV prompt in MAVproxy running on the topside computer, with no luck.
Various resources give hints from the perspective of users with questions about particular configurations and versions (e.g. here and here). I see various threads refer to using Putty to log into the Raspberry Pi, and I see references to MAVproxy running on the Pi, and so some of the helpful hints seem ambiguous as to where and when the commands might be entered.
Thanks for any clarification-- hopefully this will be useful for others using a Windows/Fathom-X/RaspberryPi/Pixhawk setup.
