QGroundControl USB connection for sensor calibration
It's not mentioned anywhere in the documentation how to connect to the RB5 by USB with QGroundControl and simply plugging the drone doesn't work (neither does trying to set the serial connection manually in QGroundControl).
I ask this because when calibrating the sensors in QGroundControl over WiFi I get the error message "Performing sensor calibration over a WiFi connection is known to be unreliable. You should disconnect and perform calibration using a direct USB connection instead."
Do I need to setup a new MAVLINK instance as it was needed for MAVROS (https://forum.modalai.com/topic/725/mavros-integration-fcu-url)? Or the sensor calibration over WiFi is fine?
Hi @umlr ,
We do all of our calibration and flight testing over WiFi on the platform, no issues doing calibration over it.
There's no MAVLink over USBC at this time.... so it's easiest at this point to go over WiFi --> https://docs.modalai.com/Qualcomm-Flight-RB5-wifi/
You shouldn't need to setup anything as by default --> https://docs.modalai.com/Qualcomm-Flight-RB5-user-guide-connect-gcs/

Alright good to know that calibrating over WiFi is fine.
Yes WiFi connection with QGroundControl worked pretty much out-of-the-box.
