Slow update on compass/tilt

(Dag Elias Sørdal) #1


I just connector my pi (that i got form my brother) and a pixhawk i got online.

The problem i have is that when i tilt the pixhawk it takes a second before Q updates.
Is there some update rate settings or do I need a newer pi? Think mine is a bit old.

Also im running on an ethernet cable about 1.5m length . No problems when connection pixhawk USB directly to PC.

What version of Raspberry Pi are you using? The first versions are likely to perform badly due to having only one core.

dont know rewision but its one of those with the yellow composite connectors, model B?

if it is this version, then it lacks the processing power required to run our Companion.
This has a 700 MHz single core processor, while the Raspberry Pi 3 has a 1.2 GHz Quad-core processor.

Copy, thats the one. Only difference is black jack connector. :joy:
