Get values of bebop's pose updated without sending the takeoff command

asked 2020-04-06 21:09:22 -0500

Hi everybody! I am controlling a bebop2 with bebop_autonomy + ROS Kinetic. At this moment I am able to read the drone's pose and orientation while it flies if I echo in terminal the messages coming from the topic "/bebop/odom". However, I have noticed that the three values (x,y,z) corresponding to the drone's pose do not get updated if the drone does not previously receive the "take off" command, for example if I only move it by hand these values will not change at all. The curious thing for me is that the four values corresponding to orientation are always updated either if you send the takeoff command or you move the drone by hand. I wonder if there is a way to get the values of bebop's pose updated without sending the take off command.

Kind regards,
