QGroundControl

You can monitor, control, calibrate and configure the flight controller of the quadcopter using QGroundControl via Wi-Fi. This requires connecting to Wi-Fi of the CLEVER-xxxx network.

After that, in the Clever launch-file /home/pi/catkin_ws/src/clever/clever/launch/clever.launch, choose one of the preconfigured bridge modes.

After editing the launch-file, restart the clever service:

sudo systemctl restart clever

TCP bridge

Change parameter gcs_bridge in the launch file:

<arg name="gcs_bridge" default="tcp"/>

Then in the QGroundControl program, choose Application Settings > Comm Links > Add. Create a connection with the following settings:

QGroundControl TCP connection

Then choose "Clever" from the list of connections, and click "Connect".

UDP bridge (with automated connection)

Change parameter gcs_bridge in the launch file:

<arg name="gcs_bridge" default="udp-b"/>

After opening the QGroundControl application, the connection should be established automatically.
