MAVLink Start


The MAVLink Start Node opens communication with a MAVLink serial port that has already been set up in Project Settings and starts the heartbeat, which is done automatically with no action required by the user.

MAVLink Communication in Incari is available as a plugin and is enabled as default. However, in the case that it is disabled in the Plugins Editor, it will not appear in the Project Settings and MAVLink Start will not show up in the Toolbox. Please refer to the Plugins Editor to find out more information.

It is important to note that while the MAVLink Start Node starts a MAVLink connection, it may not completely finish establishing said connection when the Node is executed. This could lead to the Logic attached to its Output Pulse to not work even though there is technically nothing wrong. In order to avoid this, it is highly suggested to use the On MAVLink Start Node instead. This way, the Logic will only execute once the MAVLink connection has definitely been established.

Again, the user must first use the MAVLink Start Node to open the connection. Separately, the On MAVLink Start Node can be used to execute the desired Communication Logic.
