Mavlink data between UAV and PC with Mission Planner throught Ardutracker AT


(Luis Miguel González Fernández) #1

Hi everybody.

I’m thinking about making my own DIY antenna tracker using a pixhawk with ArduTracker firmware loaded.

My initial idea is to pair UAV and tracker using a 915Mhz SIK radio system and use another couple of 433MhZ SIK radios to link tracker to Mission Planner in my laptop.

And here is my main doubt. Is possible for Ardutracker to act also as a mavlink tranparent bridge between UAV and Mission Planner in my Laptop ? Will be mavlink data between UAV and Ground Station (MP) correctly forwarded (up and down) between the 2 SIK radio systems connected in the Ardutracker Pixhawk and at the same timewill the Ardutracker be able to get GPS data from UAV ?

I’ve been reading http://ardupilot.org/dev/docs/mavlink-routing-in-ardupilot.html but i think i did not understand enough to sove my doubt.

Thanks in advance.
