What I'm trying to do is use an MSP430 to capture user input (non flight-related) which relays this data ( ~1 byte) to the APM 2.6 flight controller which sends that data down to the ground control station via the 915Mhz 3DR radios. Is there a way to pass my own data through the 3DR Radio's frequency? Maybe bypassing the APM and going straight MSP430 -> serial -> 3DR Radios -> GCS?

  • I'm okay with the MSP. Depends on what the task at hand is. I ended up using a BeagleBone over the MSP because it was easier in my opinion to deal with serial data using a Linux environment. You can get more creative/hacky with things..
  • Manny, did you ever accomplish this? How proficient are you with the MSP430?

    • Sure did. What I did was use a BeagleBone Black hosting a NodeJS webapp that I wrote, a MongoDB database I built, a few shell and python scripts that I also wrote, and finally MAVProxy for quadcopter functions.
