Control Via UART from PC
  • Hello,
    I am an absolute beginner.
    Is it possible to send serial commands directly via PC through the UART ports without using the GUI.
    I can connect the PC to the controller via UART ports and run commands via the GUI.
    Can anyone please tell if it possible to send commands without GUI. I want to control the gimbal using scripts.
    I am using SimpleBGC 32 bit controller

    Thank You,
    Best Regards,
  • Yes it is possible but you need some application (developed by you or someone) taking care of the protocol, See the Serial API documentation.
  • Thank you..
    Connected it and getting the status. I am able to turnoff the motors serially. However CMD_CONTROL is not working
    eg : 3e 43 0d 50 01 00 d8 00 48 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 : This does not control the motors. Can anyone suggest if anything is wrong in the hex values above.
    It is same as :
    • CONTROL_MODE – 1u
    • SPEED_ROLL – 2s
    • ANGLE_ROLL – 2s
    • SPEED_PITCH – 2s
    • ANGLE_PITCH – 2s
    • SPEED_YAW – 2s
    • ANGLE_YAW – 2s
  • It was a stupid mistake. I did not add the body checksum at the end. Now its working fine
