RSSI Connection

I must be overlooking this in the documentation, but I need to know how to connect the RSSI output from an FrSky receiver to the Pixhawk (MRo version).

Which Frsky receiver? Some have 3.3V analog outputs for RSSI, others have a PWM equivalent on a channel.

I’m using an X8R for set-up purposes. It has a dedicated PWM RSSI output. I’m just not sure where to connect it on the Pixhawk. I found the setting in the parameters list for the RSSI Type and a page on Wiki with some brief but vague instructions but I’m still new to the Ardupilot systems and still reading through the documentation. Any help would be appreciated.

Sincerely,

Use the Sbus ouput pin (as GPIO) and set these:
RSSI_ANA_PIN to 103
RSSI_PIN_HIGH to 3.3V
RSSI_PIN_LOW to 0
RSSI_TYPE to 1

You will probably have to adjust the high and low voltage values to scale it. I use the Range test feature in the Tx to do this because you can get a good RSSI range just by moving the radio around a short distance.

The easy way to do this is get one of these: FrSky Yappu Telemetry Converter, or one of these: Craft & Theory Telemetry Converter. Then you can run the Yappu LUA scripts and get FULL telemetry including RSSI.
