Ok I have the pixhawk and dragon link installed on my aircraft. What is the best way going to program my RSSI. I am getting a read out of 65 on my PFD and when I unplug the cable for RSSI I get 32.
Dragon Link suggested putting the plane about 50-60 feet away on High setting and set it so it reads around 99. Then put the dragon link in range test mode and set the low. Do I adjust the RSSI Voltage parameter on Mission Planner? I played with it some on the high in and got it to show 99, but not sure how to adjust the lower end. Or is this even right?
Hi I may found a way to help you:
i need your help pls
i have a pixhawk running 3.7.1 plan
and dragon link v3
i connect every thing and i am using my laptop to connect to pixhawk throw dragon link Bluetooth to my pixhawk for mission planer. and its all woking just fine.
my onlly problem is the rssi its not show any change even if i turn the dragon link off its read 100% all the time ?
how can i make it read the correct rssi from dragon link in mission planer ?
what parameters do i have to change and what numbers i have to set there ?
Dragonlink uses 3.3V RSSI. Make sure you select that on your Pixhawk to get the proper range.
WIth current firmware ("Next gen" from June or 2014 or later) the Dragonlink RSSI goes from 0-3.3V over the useable range.
Dragonlink will be working fine with an RSSI as low as 10% or so which requires you to be many 10s of kilometers away with the stock antennas.
I tweak the 100% value using the settings in the MinimOSD-extra firmware.
