Pixhawk with DJI Lightbridge

Has anyone been able to configure a Pixhawk to work with a lightbridge HD link?

I'm able to get the Lightbridge control signals to the pixhawk but I've yet to figure out how to set the FailSafe.  When I turn off the RC controller, the lightbridge air module continues to output the same S.Bus channel signal levels. 

From talking to others I've found out that Lightbridge outputs the fail-safe "flag" in the header or footer (I'm not sure which) of the S.Bus signal (not the normal PPM channels like the pixhawk is expecting).  Can anyone confirm this is true and if so, how can I map the DJI Lightbridge failsafe signal to the Pixhawk's failsafe.

Thanks!

  • Hi,

    Hi Chris, 

    I would like to know how you configured DJI Light Bridge 2 with Pixhawk Cube Autopilot. Actually i am able to receive 4 RC control channels and channel 6 but i could not find remaining channels i.e. 5, 7 and 8. Can you please help/guide in this regard.

    Thankyou

    Regards

  • Hi, Rafael Mendy,

    Did you succeed in getting more than 5 channels from LB2 for Pixhawk Cube Autopilot using Ardupilot firmware. Your help/guidance is required.

    Thankyou
