Hi,

Anybody knows WiFi modules similar to very popular esp-07 or XBee WiFi, but for 5GHz? 

I mean modules compatible with Pixhawk, ie with UART port and necessary software support.

Do you find any answer about it?

I also find WiFi modules can use 5GHz. But as you know esp use only 2.4GHz.

yes, but quite expensive

And this module requires carrier board.

Total bill of material is around 100€ per adapter. 

wow, it is awesome.

What is carrier board? 

And, did you success to connect wifi via APMN-Q551?

Half of these drones use esp-07 WiFi modules, another equipped by APMN-Q551.

APMN-Q551 works much more reliable, especially in case if there are another WiFi devices around. For example, we can't use Phantom/Inspire to film our swarm flights because they jam 2.4Ghz network.

In few days we will publish documentation here - https://github.com/ugcs/ddc

this program use mavlink v1.0 or v2.0? 

My esp8266 looks like using only mavlink v1.0.

APMN-Q551 doesn't know about MAVLink. It's just WiFi adapter ))

um..!! Accroding to what you reply, prepare adapter and APMN-Q551 and just plug in this adapter to Pixhawk’s telemetry port?
Right. Plag and fly :)

We have published BOM, schematics and all necessary for PCB here - https://github.com/ugcs/ddc/tree/master/WiFi/adapter
