Hi together,i want to use a D4R-II together with APM2, PPM and RSSI are no problem. What i want to connect as well is the serial port of RX and APM2 to send compressed GPS information over the FrSky…Continue
"It's now 1am in here... Bangkok is GMT+7
But yeah that's correct way to do it. On my desk there is just similar combination now. APM2.5+, Telemetry Distro board, RFD900 modem and IOBoard. From IOBoard I have 3 cables going to FrSky D8R-II…"
"Morning Jani, or afternoon where you are?
I originally had the IOBoard with the Telemetry Modem. I recently just tried the IOBoard alone as per your thread message. I have removed my IOSplitter just to rule out any issues."
"What all you have connected on telemetry port or just IOBoard?
Have you tried to use ioboard with telemetry modem on same time?
I will create new post for future development of this board as here it's a bit Off Topic :)"
"Another day working on this IOBoard Solution and unfortunately no luck.The good news, is that I do get alot of information posted to the screen but that was there before as well. The bad news is most of it wrong.
I placed the latest hex file…"
"I just flew with this configuration. GPS is being displayed accurately now on FrSky Taranis. It was with the same APM 2.0 and Arduplane 2.74b. I got Lots of info. except the ALT and SPEED (maybe this because of the v1 mediatek GPS?) .…"
"Now that I was able to turn my self back to programming mode. I have been able to make some updates on IOBoard software. Also Simon bumped coding forward a lot.. Well that's how communities are working :)
After looking a bit more around I found…"
"Hello Jani, thanks for staying up and working/replying to this thread.... I will do as you say and post my findings... working on this now this morning on the EST side of the World.
"Hello Simon, if I am not mistake, it was this thread : (Telemetry to Turnigy 9X (with FrSky FLD-02 Telemetry Display Screen) that had given me hope as I did a detailed follow up on the findings and did not hear anything back. I know…"
"yes i already noticed on those and added them. Also there were iob_ampbatt_A, cell_count, cell_numb, celV, iob_lat_dir and iob_lon_dir values added.
well a bit OT here so we can continue on IOB thread."
I have my telemetry stream working correctly with APM 1 telem output to an IO_board and thence to a FrSky D8RII-Plus Rx. The connection to the Rx is simply IOBoard D5 -> D8R-II Plus Tx port; the Gnd line is already common.
My Tx uses the…"
"yes heading works too and i am trying to get voltage information to work too. GPS Location issue is well known as current software has some problems on converting them.
Alt seems to have problems on Taranis radio, it works on FLD-02 which…"
"I got this all working on my FrSky Taranis with a D8R-XP. the pinout for my pro mini was the opposite of yours. not a big deal but did add to my confusion,
5 -> rx 6 -> tx
This is a APM 2.0 with the on board gps
i got acel X,Y,Z and…"
"I am not sure how you connect your IOBoard but I just tested one offtheshelf board, uploaded our MAVLink_FrSky IOBoard test software from arducodes repository download area and voila my Taranis radio can show telemetry data that is coming from…"
