I am trying to implement this project: https://github.com/DroneBridge/ESP32 and I can't connect to the ESP's AP mode.
I can see the AP (DroneBridge ESP32) in the WiFi list but it doesn't connect to it. I've gotten two different error messages:
Couldn't authenticate connection
Couldn't get IP address
The project basically puts the ESP32 in AP Mode and makes it a bridge between the user and the drone.
The ESP is powered by a drones battery at 5V.
If I power it via the USB,it works.
I have measured and the power input is 5V. I have also tried the other 5V input on the ESP board but to no avail.
Ignore the RX and TX wires on the ESP32 WEMOS as they are not connected to anything.
I have switched to a new ESP32: the DevKit V4 Wroover-B . The red LED is on, but there is no AP listed. If I hit the EN button on the board the AP shows up but I can't connect to it, giving me the same error messages as the previous ESP.
This one also works only when connected to USB.
I've got a multi-meter and it measures 5.05V on the 5V pin and 3.3V on the 3V3 pin.
