Hello,

Trying to get my RC working I have noticed that I cannot switch modes. Once I open the ground control station, it always stays as auto 2. I think this may be related to the fact that it doesn't identify any GPS signal and it works in a kind of failsafe mode automatically, can this be the reason? There is also an error in the Paparazzi Center saying "Unix.Unix_error(2, "read", "")". How can I get my GPS working? I have configured it with U-center and everything is ok, however, it never works when connected to Yapa.

Thanks,

Hello,

You should probably start by thoroughly looking through the wiki. Paparazzi has components written in a number of languages, but the airborne code is in C. To get started with the code, you will need to first install the tools and get the code. You will have to explore the code to understand the system prior to writing any additional code. You can also browse it online on GitHub.

What kind of hardware do you have? Which main board?

Hope that helps get you started.

Thanks,
-Stephen Dwyer

I have also been getting " Unix.Unix_error(2, "read", "")" errors when building. The only way i have found to avoid them is to restore my virtual machine to a previous state. I'm not sure if they arise because I am making mistakes in the airframe file, or if it's a Paparazzi bug. If anyone has any idea what could be causing this and what I should do to troubleshoot, I would be very interested in solving this issue.
