Yuneec ST16 Transmitter Support?

Anyone? I need some help here…

Does the st24 protocol even function?

As far as I can tell the protocol should just work. I’ll try binding another receiver with that hex trick next weekend.

Binding worked perfectly using an Arduino to send the hex, but got the same manual control lost error in QGC. It seems that it decodes the first packet correctly and displays it, but fails on the rest. This looks like an error in the Pixhawk firmware, probably in the sr24 decoder. I’m going to try and copy the decoder code from GitHub and run it on an Arduino to debug it, if I can get it to work or if I find a bug I’ll open an issue on GitHub. Also, since Arducopter and Pixhawk are very similar it may very well be the same bug in both.

Binding has been working great. Ive successfully bound it many times now.

I am not sure where to see the “RCInput: …” message, but it is in the AP_HAL_ChibiOS/RCInput.cpp:

I tried watching the ‘messages’ tab in Mission planner, but it never showed up there. Mission planner just shows “No RC Receiver” in the HUD at all times and I get no response at the RC calibration page. I tried calibrating, but still nothing.

I can see the sticks moving around on the ST16 HW monitor page, but I am not sure if this is at the actual TX output point or at some point before that. At this time I can only assume that the stick movements are getting to the SR24.

I will try mavproxy and see If the “RCInput: decoding %s” shows itself.

It looks like other users are having trouble with Spektrum RX as well:

Unfortunately, it looks like the solution is commonly to bind in 11ms mode instead of 22ms mode. I dont think we have that option with the Yuneec SR24.

I noticed this comment:

In addition, beginning with ArduPilot firmware releases 4.0 and later, any UART RX input will auto-detect the RC receiver, if attached.

…Does that mean that we can connect the SR24 to ANY UART port? (Assuming the ST24.cpp protocol is functional, obviously)

Can you tell more about how to bind sr24 and st10c after sent the binding command to the sr24? While sr24’s yellow light is blinking my cc2531 could not capture any signal. If there are more commands for binding.

I havent tried using a packet sniffer.

Afik, there are no more commands. The SR24 will be in bind mode when the yellow light is blinking fast. Once you see the fast blinking light, you will have to browse through the menu on the ST10 and find the bind option. After you put the ST10 in bind mode, the light on the SR24 should go solid indicating that it is bound.

Do you have a solid light?

Thanks for your reply. After sending the bind command, the sr24 keep blinking. Maybe my sr24 is a tx module as Sheng Yao said(In fact I have 4 sr24) . And I have a st10c too, Sheng Yao said he could bind st10c and sr24. So I want to know the steps.

Isn’t it easy to study this product?

hello please you have new info for convertisseur?

I wrote an ios app which can instruct ST10C to search and bind SR24 which is in binding mode.

I find ST10C keep sending out channel data after power up, no matter rx is connected or not. And it is very easy to capture the channel data using a packet sniffer.

So I managed to create a custom firmware for SR24, it is able to:

  1. receive channel data sent out by ST10C tx. maybe other yuneec tx will work as well
  2. channel mapping and protocol conversion
  3. output SBUS protocol directly.

i’m still working on it

hello very good job i have st16 i test your firmware sr24 in st16 ?

is apk work in st16?

Need capture some packets from ST16 using CC2531 packet sniffer first.
i’m not sure if ST16 uses the same RF channels as ST10C does.

ok i have in stock st16 st16+ and st24
in ebay i look cc2531 and buy

hello is good for analyse protocol https://www.ebay.fr/itm/CC-Debugger-ZigBee-Programmer-Adapterkabel-fur-CC2531-CC2530-CC2531-Stick/372918614163?hash=item56d3ae7893:g:c54AAOSwNhNeItdA

hello here is the solution the protocol st24 works with a pixhawk 1 with firmware px4 but does not work with firmware ardupilot 4.0.0 rover which has the solution

Hello again, I haven’t posted here is a while but I figured I’d add all the info I’ve currently gathered. I have managed to reliably bind my sr24 receivers with an arduino, and connected them to the spkt/dsm port of the pixhawk v1 board, running px4 v1.10.0 with slight modifications. I have actually managed to get all of the stick movements to display in qgroundcontrol, but only in hitl or sih mode. Strangely, when I run without sih or hitl, it only decodes the first packet, immediately giving the “manual control lost” error and never reconnecting. Any ideas what could be causing the difference? I have checked and it preforms perfectly with a standard ppm receiver, so it’s got to be something very specific.
