FrSky Telemetry for Pixhawk Version:1.0
(0 votes)

The interface displays the following information on the Taranis LCD:

  • Flight mode (+Simple/SuperSimple)
  • Flight timer as determined by autopilot (paused when landed)
  • RC link signal quality
  • RC transmitter battery voltage
  • Heads-Up display (HUD) – similar to Mission Planner’s HUD and extremely fast 24+Hz update rate!
    • Heading and compass bezel
    • Pitch and roll
    • Altitude and horizontal speed
  • Battery information (requires power module and battery mAh to be configured in Mission Planner)
    • Battery pack voltage
    • Average cell voltage (or lowest cell voltage if a FrSky LiPo voltage sensor is connected)
    • Current/power draw
    • Number of cells in battery pack
    • Lowest recorded or nominal battery pack and cell voltages
    • Highest current/power draw
    • Remaining battery capacity bar
  • Vehicle position
    • Orientation relative to home position
    • Distance from home
    • Distance above ground (if equipped with a range finder)
  • GPS signal quality
    • GPS fix indicator (no GPS, no fix, 2D, 3D)
    • Number of satellites or HDOP
  • MAVLink messages
    • Alerts and error messages (same as Mission Planner)
    • Failsafe flags
    • Information messages

The scripts also provide audible sound alerts consisting of:
• Flight mode (e.g., “stabilize,” “loiter”),
• “Normal/simple/super simple mode,”
• “Armed”/“disarmed,”
• “Landing complete” each time the copter lands (which pauses the flight timer)
• “Message received” each time a MAVLink message is received,
• “Battery at 50%,”
• “Battery warning” when 25% is left,
• “Battery low” if the lowest cell voltage is below the [LowVx10] value,
• “Battery critical” if the lowest cell voltage is below the [CritVx10] value,
• “Battery failsafe” which repeats every [RepeatT] seconds if triggered,
• “EKF failsafe” which repeats every [RepeatT] seconds if triggered.

The parameters in brackets can be configured from the Taranis, and the sounds can be disabled altogether.
