I have been given an FT205 wind sensor to add to my multi rotor (modified DJI900). I can’t seem to find any information on how or what I need to do to integrate this hardware into my Pixhawk 2.1 cube. It is my current understanding that this sensor is meant to passively collect and store wind data on board and then be view after landing.
My task and end goal for this addition is to set this up so that it will collect the data and transmit it to the ground station to be viewed in real time. My current thoughts are that I need some sort of data logger to plug it into then have that connected into my cube. Once sent to the ground station I think that I would then need a way to unpack that information so that the FT Technologies ACU-TEST software can process it.
Please let me know if I’m on the right track. If anyone has solved this or a similar issue. I am also unfamiliar with what products I should pair with the cube and wind sensor for the most reliable operation.
My current configuration is as follows:
Pixhawk 2.1 cube
RFD900 telemetry radios
Futaba R7000SB 2.4Ghz Fasst
Futaba 14SG or 18MZ
Mauch 3 power core
Battery : 16k MAh or 22k MAh
Mission planner software
I am open to any and all ideas the product link is below
