I have a ping2020 W/GPS and Baro PingNav and I have not been able to get airtraffic to show up on MP, I have it on telem2 and it shows up on messages when I connect to MP W/usb or Bluetooth with call sign & ICAO info, but also there are alot of configurable options in the full parameter list that I do not know the necessary parameters. also all current firmware ArduCopter 3.6.5 & MP 1.3.62
ADSB_LIST_RADIUS 800 or 1000 or 10000
and I built my telem2 cable as 5v to 5v, Gnd to Gnd, tx to rx, rx to tx.
Please help me make this work, I have tried for days now. Please help me fill in the blanks.
If by tool you mean that wifi ping android app, lets you program he call sign,ICAO ect …is it this your speaking of?
I’ll tell you something strange tho, after I program and save the config on either ping2020 or PingNav on the config app the units has the changed config information, but in mission planner in the messages tab it’s a random call sign from the ads-b but the ICAO is changed to the 696969 i set? this is odd I thought.
yeah, that’s the weird thing about their app. Instead of adding to, or creating a new, mavlink message they decided to use the upper 8 bits of ICAO as magical status bits that their app takes advantage of. That allowed backward-ish compatibility that didn’t depend on ardupilot version. I called it “encoded ICAO” in this comment I wrote here:
I don’t know where the 696969 comes from, that’s new to me.
I set the ICAO # to 696969 in the ping android app, that changed and stays constantly displayed in the MP messages tab, but the call sign I set to WT650 with the ping Android app and that is never displayed in the messages tab in mission planner or anywhere… I only see WT650 in the ping android config app, MP messages tab states a random call sign (PING564 or PING901) upon mavlink connection.
just checked the setup instructions for your ping2020i, same as mine I would be really interested to see what your results are from setup & to see if your track-able " To test the system you can compare with flights shown on [flightradar24.com]" also your MP should display nearby aircraft (https://www.flightradar24.com/).
No matter what I do, I’m unable to get the air traffic to show up on mission planner as advertised, I have tried about 10+ different configurations all with the same out come, no displayed air traffic in mission planner, this defeats the purpose of having this hardware.
So what is the difference in my case?
Using a Ping2020i with integrated GPS - No FYXnav attachment, etc.
No configuration via the app - all configs done via autopilot parameters (I just plugged in a vanilla Ping2020i straight from the bag)
I’ll be updating with pictures of connections momentarily.
Setup Image below - I have no other devices connected to the PixRacer, though I was using USB to connect with MP. The Ping 2020i is powered (currently) with a 12V adapter, for convenience sake. I used uAvionix’ stock JST-GH cable (there are several included, but only one with a JST-GH).
