Sentinel does not go to Position mode during outdoor flight
As I am testing out the Sentinel outdoors, I came across an issue where the Sentinel rejected Position mode. I have calibrated all the sensors multiple times and made sure it has GPS lock (~20 satellites with HDOP < 1). The only way I mitigated this issue was by enabling the qvio server. In my understanding, you do not need to run the qvio server to enable Position mode outside. Any suggestions/advice to fix this issue?
FYI Sentinel has not been flown indoors yet.
Hi @rohitpillai ,
Sorry you're having an issue.
Did you happen to update the parameters for outdoor mode? You can try these: https://gitlab.com/voxl-public/flight-core-px4/px4-parameters/-/blob/master/helpers/v1.12/ekf2_outdoor_gps_mag.params
The aid mask parameter is mainly responsible for changing position modes to use vision versus gps.
We might have a gap in our docs to make this more clear if it wasn't ther.
You're right you don't need vision for outdoor flight mode.
Yep uploading this param file worked!
