"Hi Pau, The 868 does not work with the standard firmware. Use the multipoint firmware instead, apperently it handles synchronization better. The only downside is that you loose the logging of the link quality so it is harder to debug the telemetry"

"I have a problem with the telemetry logging of the RFD868+ on Pixhawk. If I look at the logs from a 3DR radio it looks like this: But if I instead fly with the RFD868p it looks like this: Do anyone know what the problem might be?"
