??Multiple pixhawks communicating to single Ground Control Station??

I am looking to have 3+ (ideally quite a few more) pixhawks send their live telemetry data to ideally one laptop that records this data as it comes in. Is this possible?At the moment I am thinking…Continue

"Do I have to use similar drones or can I use drones of different sizes/frame types?"

"Thanks. But I already saw this. Does it work properly with Mission Planner? Is Q Ground Control a better option?"

"@Chris Anderson Yes. I got that. How do I send commands to the drones so that they move together, get a formation, etc?"

"Yes, see my pictures in this thread that show how to use a USB hub to control multiple drones with 3DR radios. "

"I am also looking to control multiple drones at the same time. Can I achieve this with my existing 3DR telemetry radios or do I need the XBee modem for sure? Also, can you please share a document which explains how to achieve multiple drone control…"

"I'm afraid I don't know anything about Xbees. As for recording all the datalogs, yes as I recall QGroundControl logs all the incoming MAVLink from all the MAVs, regardless of which one is currently being controlled"

"Chris, thank you very much! Understood.Would this set-up allow me to record 4 live telemetry data streams with no interference? Or would I have to select a COM in turn to get each one of the four sets of data in turn? (I am not that familiar with…"

"In QGroundControl you can have multi MAVs. Just use a USB hub and plug each one one of your radios into that. Each will get their own COM port and you can just assign each to a different MAV number. "

??Multiple pixhawks communicating to single Ground Control Station??

I am looking to have 3+ (ideally quite a few more) pixhawks send their live telemetry data to ideally one laptop that records this data as it comes in. Is this possible?At the moment I am thinking either mission planner or Qgroundcontrol and using one of the swarm type modes. But Can these 'planners' deal with receiving lots of incoming communication?Ideally I would like to use a method of long range communication like LoRa to send the data but I am unsure of how to get many of these at 433Mhz…See More
