I'm running the latest PX4 software on a Pixhawk 4, wich is connected to an onboard computer running Ubuntu 18.04. In Ubuntu I use mavros to communicate with the Pixhawk.

The question: is there a possibility to check if the RC is connected to the Pixhawk?

Thank you in advance.

QGroundControl somehow manages to do it, so it should be possible.

I haven't checked but I think it should be possible to check over /mavros/rc/ topics (in/out/override) anyone of them should show the status!
