Hi all,

I just bought an FrSky Taranis for my quad copter and needed to get the Mavlink data up on the Taranis LCD telemetry display. So here is my solution using a Teensy3.1 as a converter between MavLink and the S.Port on FrSky X8R.

See attached file below...

its 14$ for the script and another 14$ for the cable\adaptor

what exactly you meant by this picture is it the teensy ?

Thanks moderator. for removing that  stupid picture  (no not of a teensy)


No, it isn't a teensy!

This cable / adaptor is less worth than 5 bucks.

It is just what I posted....


This isn't my opinion, sry

can you share a link to buy this adapter for 5 bucks

I have built an invertor based on the design detailed in a github post here: https://github.com/diydrones/ardupilot/issues/1587

This is what it looks like assembled (not my picture, but the same):

and it uses simply 2 parts all available from banggood:

RS232 toi TTL converter: http://www.banggood.com/5Pcs-Serial-Port-Mini-RS232-To-TTL-Converte...

Zenner diode: http://www.banggood.com/300pcs-2V-39V-30-Values-Zener-Diode-Assorte...

You can build 5 of these for about £8. You will of course need to add/solder the cables and connectors.

This is a close up of the connections:

The DF13 connector is at the pixhawk end and the servo connector for the X8R sport end. 

Simply connect and amend the parameter SERIAL2_PROTOCOL = 4 (assuming you are using the Telem 2 port), then discover sensorsa on your taranis and you should get a bunch of sensors presented with usable telemetry. 

I personally still use the teensy solution on all my copters, as I love the LUA screen that I have, and not spent the time to get it working with the above solution yet.

bonjour,alors avez vous pu compiler le code?peut etre que je peux vous aider
