I am breadboarding a new setup to try using less expensive hardware for Ardupilot:
FC: Holybro F7 Kakute AIO
GPS: Beitan BN880 GPS+compass
RX: Radiomaster R168 running FRSKY D16 with Sbus, s.port
TX: Radiomaster TX16S
Sbus receiver output to R6, S.port to T6
Basic arducopter function seems to work: all sensors recognized, RC radio working, Mission Planner working, etc.
Trying to set up FRsky telemetry and it only partially works. I get the RC receiver sensor values and only the GPS from the flight controller. The rest of the flight controller information is missing.
I followed the instructions for setting up the telemetry as follows:
" FrSky Telemetry is supported using the T6 pin (UART6 transmit). You need to set the following parameters to enable support for FrSky S.PORT
I have tried various other setups - different UART, different Serial Options, tried F.port setup, googled to death, etc. I don’t have one of the special cables for FRSky telemetry but you are not supposed to need one with F7 controllers like Kakute.
I only get the RC receiver telemetry at the transmitter plus the flight controller GPS. So some of the telemetry from the FC seems to work, but not much.
Can you help me?
