JR XG8 xbus mode B

Hi all,

I finally got my multicopter built and I am trying to connect my JR XG8 receiver to the Pixhawk PPM port directly. I have been using a PPM encoder but I would like to ditch it. Has anyone been able to successfully run their quad with a JR xbus mode B receiver connected directly? I know the order is different on the xbus compared to the sbus but I am trying to figure out the modification i have to do on the Pixhawk code.

The quad is build of pretty much 3dr parts (880KV motors). I was planning to use carbon fiber props but the Hobbyking ones are not exactly balanced (Have to work on balancing them). Using the 3dr props as of now.

  • Hi.

    What's your progress?
    I'm going to use my JR XG14 radio with APM but APM has no xBUS support (technically there's no opensource implementations of xBus =(
