    Dronekit wait_ready() always timeouts on Aero RTF

    LudoDrone

      Dear Intel Aero support,

       

      I'm coding the Aero using dronekit and even the most basic programs fail to run with setting the wait_ready=True.

       

      Even the code for Drone Kit you provide at 04 Autonomous drone programming in Python · intel-aero/meta-intel-aero Wiki · GitHub doesn't work if wait_ready =True.

       

      Is there any possible workaround? Is this a Pixhawk-to-DroneKit problem?

       

      I'm developing on my drone indoor, could it be because the vehicle is not locking on any GPS and therefore it's not suggested to be armable?

       

      Could it be because I'm connecting over the loopback address and therefore packets get lost? Is it better to communicate via serial while developing on the Aero?

       

      Before you ask, my Aero is up to date:

       

      BIOS_VERSION = Aero-01.00.13

      OS_VERSION = Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS"

      AIRMAP_VERSION = unknown

      FPGA_VERSION = 0xc2

      AeroFC firmware version = 1.6.5

       

      Thank you in advance.
