I’ve recently performed heavy retrofit on a pixhawk based BR2. I am having issues with the software part of the update. I’m following these instructions:
At Load Heavy Parameters step, Load Vehicle Default Parameters tab is not shown on the latest version of QGroundControl. Frame setup is only showing different configurations. The software is the BR version of QGC and it is downloaded through the link on software setup page. I have tried Windows, MacOS and Ubuntu versions on different computers and the tab is missing. Is this option moved somewhere else? I think these instructions may be out of date.
I can pick Vectored-6DOF but I know the channel assignments are wrong because turning on lights activate some thrusters (and the ROV is not armed).
I’ve tried downloading the parameter file for heavy version from this downloads page:
When I try to load this file using Parameters > Tools > Load from file; I get an error about missing parameters possibly due to a version mismatch.
Then I found this post and downloaded the “bluerov2-heavy-4_0_0.params” file from github:
When I load this file, QGC complains “There are no differences between the file loaded and the current settings on the Vehicle.” After a reset, channel assignments are still incorrect.
Did anyone encountered or fixed this issue? Am I missing something?
Companion Software Status Version 0.0.31
ArduSub Version: 4.1.0
QGC version v4.2.3
