Notice - A $2?9 Mini Android Controller from SIYI - 10 KM Range @ 1080P 180 ms, 8-core CPU


This is not (yet) a rtsp error. It looks to me a user rights issue on GStreamer. If you are running it on a Windows machine, try to run MP as administrator and see if that helps

User rights were my first thoughts too. But as it is Android on the MK15 I thought that should not be an issue.

Ahh, sure. In that case, can’t help but for use it’s a GStreamer issue, not yet rtsp.

I’ve done a bit more research into that gstreamer issue in MP on Android 9 within MK15.
If I understand it correctly it is a permission issue within gstreamer as it requires root privileges which have to be set at time of installation (obviously prepared earlier as part of the MP for Android package).
It may also require specific access rights to the stream source - which, if I understand it correctly, would perhaps need a specific custom version of MP for the SIYI MK15 unit.

…would be nice hearing the official explanation from the man himself.

For those interested I’ve made an antenna mount for the MK15 receiver antennas. (3D Printing)
This design is suitable for 25mm carbon fibre tubing.

I think it will be good for the HM30 antennas as well. Top

Hello, was wondering if a bridge between radio wifi and on board ethernet has been introduced in latest firmwares.
I would like to connect to the radio wifi or ethernet dongle and reach the onboard ethernet, like the herelink can do.

Here is a 3D printable holder for the MK15 so a neck strap can be used.


Any news on the bridge from wifi to onboard?

Hello @SIYI
Thank you for presenting this controller for us. It was great and helpful.
I have MK15 and CUAV RTK. I connected the two via Serial. but I did not receive RTK data.
Could you please tell me that how can I use it with Serial? Did you receive data with Mission Planner?

I heard that Auterion app has supported bridge to onboard, welcome to have a try

Sorry for late reply
Have you tried to contact CUAV at the same time? I am also contacting CUAV for feedback. Will update asap.

Hello Everyone,

SIYI has released many different options of cameras for MK15. And there will be more.

Currently we have

Besides, the same link of MK15 has been applied to two more models

Welcome to have a try!

Which app do you mean?

Hi Frank,
I have problems with video signal. At a distance of hundreds of meters, the image may freeze for seconds, at a distance of several kilometers, the image may freeze for minutes. The maximum image reception range is 25 km. The maximum range of control and telemetry is 37 km (with interruptions). We use MK15 and HM30 (two tramsmitters and two receivers), omni antennas, siyi patch and 21db patch. Firmware HM30_AU_FW_(N32)v5.2.4 and HM30_GU_FWv0.1.9. Tested in different modes and different bitrates. Can you advise something? Here is an example of how the image disappeared at a distance of 1.5 km and was restored at a distance of 100m.

Am i the only one getting 400-500 meters before the connection is lost? In same place, same drone, same day i get around 2km with an herelink. MK15 was tested with regular stick antenna that come with the radio and upgrade patch antenna from Siyi.

Made same test with only a test rig with a camera and we get 500 meters on MK15 and same 2km with heelink. So more or less same as when it is on the drone.

It seems i can’t get more that 500 meters out of the MK15.

Maybe you’ll get more attention if you open a new thread. This one is about MK15 radio.

You are working with Davit, right?
I’ve suggested on his issue according to this video.

In the video,

  1. You are using one 21 dB antenna and one omni antenna. We never suggest customers using like that. Since you haven’t get longer than 5km range with HM30, please start with 5km mode and omni antennas only.
  2. In the video, it is 24 km mode. We can talk about detail guide for this wireless mode later when you successfully get 5 km and 8 km.
  3. The video also shows that you were flying at about 50m altitude. If you are going to fly more than 20 km, please fly higher like 100 to 150 meters.

For anyone who want to have the best range performance with MK15/HM30/MK32, please carefully read the antenna and wireless mode guide in the manuals chapter 2.2.

Hi Frank. Yes, I work with Davit.
Today we tested the third set at a different location. At a distance of 1.3 km, the image is frozen (MK15, omni antennas). We take off from the mountain and the flight altitude above the landscape is several hundred meters (long range with 21db patch). Unfortunately, a clear image cannot be achieved.
With any antenna, we have defects in the image at a distance of hundreds of meters. At a distance of 10-20 km, a clear image takes minutes to update. If we turn on two remotes, then the amount of interference doubles.
