Can I control the drone through 5G (No Spektrum Transmitter) ?
Or the 5G is only for viewing the camera?

Yes, the tool is QGroundControl. You can find documentation here on how to control the drone over 5G.
Thanks for the directions.
I was going through the initial setup and I'm stuck at the point to connect to QGroundControl.
I'm at the same NW as the drone but when I check the status for the P4X it shows the following:
sh-4.4# systemctl status rb5-px4-start ● rb5-px4-start.service - rb5-px4-start Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/rb5-px4-start.service; enabled; vendor pr **Active: inactive (dead)** lines 1-3/3 (END)
I've tried disabling/enabling and rebooting but I still could not see the drone on the QGC app..
Wifi is now up and running:
sh-4.4# ifconfig wlan0 wlan0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 inet 10.188.113.109 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 10.188.113.255 inet6 fe80::34d3:41a2:d468:53d2 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x20<link> ether 00:03:7f:12:d8:ac txqueuelen 3000 (Ethernet) RX packets 837 bytes 50588 (50.5 KB) RX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 frame 0 TX packets 849 bytes 62391 (62.3 KB) TX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 carrier 0 collisions 0
Let me know if any further configuration is necessary to have it available to connect on QGC.
rb5-net-checkto finish before starting. You will want to modify
/etc/systemd/system/rb5-net-check.serviceto fit your network.
If you take a look at the the service file:
Description=rb5-net-check After=sscrpcd.service Requires=sscrpcd.service [Service] Type=oneshot ExecStart=/usr/bin/rb5-net-check wlan0 192.168 RemainAfterExit=yes [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
By default it waits until
wlan0is assigned an IP address of the form
For your use case it looks like you will want to change this
10.188in order for the net check to pass and for px4 to start.

For reference the documentation is here: https://docs.modalai.com/Qualcomm-Flight-RB5-user-guide-px4/#system-bootup-behavior
@tom said in Can I control the drone through 5G (No Spektrum Transmitter) ?:
Thank you @tom ! It worked!
