Uavonix Ping usb for ADS-B display with mission planner

It seems like Mission planner takes in a few different formats for it’s adsb input.

dump1090 sbs on tcp 30003
dump1090 avr on tcp 30002
rtl1090 sbs1 on tcp 31004
rtl1090 avr on tcp 31001
adsb# on tcp 47806

I have set up the ping USB with Virtual Radar Service and I’m able to see the aircraft on Virtual radar services.

This was done by following https://uavionix.com/support/pingusb-vrs-setup/

but I’m unsure how to set that up to be displayed on mission planner.

Virtual Radar Service lets you re-broadcast a stream on a TCP port for use with other programs so I’ve attempted to link that to mission planner by setting my output format to “Base Station” which is apparently like the SBS format. According to the available output formats in http://www.virtualradarserver.co.uk/Documentation/WebServer/RebroadcastServersParentOptions.aspx#format .

Does anyone know if this SBS format is different from the sbs from dump1090 or rtl1090?

Has anyone used the Ping USB directly with mission planner? Is there a simpler option to integrate it?

do you have a sample data output?

Hey Michael,

Thanks for the reply.

The ping usb actually outputs mavlink messages over usb at 57600 as far as I’ve been told from uavonix.

So as for a direct connection that would probably be the simplest way to use it with MP but I think that would have to be added in. I don’t have a dump of that raw mavlink data.

As far as what I’ve described above… Here is a raw dump from the “base station” format of Virtual Radar Server.

TCP_DUMP.txt is the python script used to collect basestation_format_raw.txt (can’t upload a .py file)

TCP_DUMP.txt (368 Bytes)

Hi Mathew,
Did you solve the integration problem?

the format in the provided file is actually sbs format so just need to make it listen on 30003 or 31004

Weird. I think i remember trying that and I couldn’t get it working that way. I don’t have one on hand right now to test with but next time I have one i’ll check. Thanks for the reply michael.

yeah, sorry about the delay on the response… i think it should work
