I’m using successfully the native passthrough FrSky telemetry on Pixhawk, Pixhack and PixRacer with my
Taranis X9E and the great C&T (Craft and Theory) FlightDeck script and I would love to use it on my Navio2,
unfortunately it does not work when the telemetry cable is connected to the Navio2 UART port.
Here is my setup:
Raspberry Pi 3, Navio 2, X9E, X8R, SmartPort telemetry cable
AC-3.5.0-rc2, MP 1.3.45, OpentTX 2.2.0-rc9, FlightDeck 3.0.5
SERIAL1_PROTOCOL set to 10 (FrSky SPort Passthrough)
SERIAL1_BAUD set to 57
-C /dev/ttyAMA0 (parameter to start the ArduCopter code)
My FlightDeck script is receiving some datas like the HUD and the battery capacity but nothing else,
furthermore the update is slower than normally so I guess it is a timing issue.
As the Navio2 UART is directly connected to the RPi GPIO port I believe it is not directly relative to Navio
but mostly to the ArduPilot to linux porting…
Is there anybody using the FrSky passthrough telemetry with Navio2 successfully, any hint on this ?
