Xbee alternative ?

I already have a video and audio link with plane.

My OSD has audio telemetry. It encodes data's into audio stream and one software decodes it.

Is it posible to make audio link to communicate with APM ?

  • Hi Doug,
    In the SVN I can't find a doug.h needed to compile the latest svn code.

    You can make any kind of telemetry link you like. APM will need it to interface as a standard serial port. An audio link may not provide sufficient bandwidth depending on how much telemetry you want to transmit. The APM firmware has configurable baud rates for the telemetry, but keep in mind if your link is too slow you will either bog down the autopilot or loose data.
  • Or maybe a GSM shield for arduino ?
