    • Hello Hector,

      i want to run your "MavLink_SoftFrSkySPort" on my Arduino Mini Pro, but i get these messages.

      Can you help me because I am a total nerd on programming Arduino.

      Arduino: 1.6.3 (Windows 8.1), Board:"Arduino Pro or Pro Mini, ATmega328 (5V, 16 MHz)"

    • Hector - I have been trying to get your sketch to work on my Arduino Pro MIni but Im not having any luck. Im sure it something stupid I am doing wrong - I am a rank newbie as far as programming goes.

      I have a RTFHawk FC board, a Pro Mini and an Arduino Uno to connect to the computer. I have the latest Arduino 1.0.6 downloaded and running on a windoz 8.1 laptop. Im using a FrSky X4R rx and Taranis Plus with the latest 2.0.13 firmware.

      I have tried every version of the sketch I can find, but when I verify and/or compile the sketch I get the following errors:

        This report would have more information with
        "Show verbose output during compilation"
        enabled in File > Preferences.
      Arduino: 1.0.6 (Windows NT (unknown)), Board: "Arduino Pro or Pro Mini (5V, 16 MHz) w/ ATmega328"
      MavLink_FrSkySPort.ino: In function 'void setup()':
      MavLink_FrSkySPort:119: error: 'Serial1' was not declared in this scope
      MavLink_FrSkySPort.ino: In function 'void loop()':
      MavLink_FrSkySPort:144: error: 'Serial1' was not declared in this scope
      MavLink_FrSkySPort.ino: In function 'void _MavLink_receive()':
      MavLink_FrSkySPort:176: error: 'Serial1' was not declared in this scope
      MavLink_FrSkySPort.ino: In function 'void play_rtttl(char*)':
      MavLink_FrSkySPort:397: error: 'OCTAVE_OFFSET' was not declared in this scope
      MavLink_FrSkySPort:407: error: 'tone1' was not declared in this scope
      MavLink_FrSkySPort:407: error: 'notes' was not declared in this scope

      When I change "Serial1" to "Serial" and comment out all the other errors the sketch compiles and loads ok, but I dont get any GPS data showing. In fact about all I get that looks good is Heading and rx voltage.

      Actually, I do get some garbled GPS data but the Lat and Lon that show up are way off. It looks like 00.00.003524 x 00.00.0012345 or something like that when I am actually at 27.????something x -144.????? something.

      Im hoping you can point me in the right direction to get this working.

      Thanks in advance!

      Hector, great job and much appreciated!  I've also got prominis sitting around.

      It would be interesting to hear the the sounds on arm and disarm.  Please add it as a branch.

      Also, I'm having a hard time understanding the wiring connections.  Could you clarify the connections to the APM and to the S.Port?

      Thanks!

      • Sure can mate , have to head out for a family lunch so will post some more detailed pictures ect later tonight but the basics are Tx from your apms telemetry cable goes to RX or digital pin 0 on the promini with a common ground then pin 9 is the S.Port data line , Vin "5 volts" & a common ground is also on the S.Port connector.

        i'll be sure to make this a lot clearer tonight and ill add that branch up aswell :)

        • Hi Hector,I read all you've posted about "teensy 3.1" and I intend to make the same.I want to get telemetry to my taranis via the pixhawk.I have two questions:I heard that to make it work,you have to modify pixhawk firmware.is this right?

          2.does this work with ezuhf receiver?? tkanks.greeting from France

  • Just finished porting this for use with the software serial lib, so we can use it with prominis / anything without a extra serial ports or any arduino as there hardware ports don't support inverting . i did it this way as i didn't have a Teensy3.1 lying around and by the time i ordered one i knew i could get it working on a arduino.

    i could wrap it up so it checked what hardware it was running on and use software serial if its on a atmel chip or hardware if its a teensy and you could merge it if you liked , also added gps hdop /100 to get the real numbers.

    will upload soon just doing final checks but all looks good so far :)
