Taranis Mavlink APM Pixhawk Telemetry adapter

Availability: In stock

£27.00

Quick Overview

This adapter board converts the Mavlink data from the APM or Pixhawk to Smart Port X8R Taranis receiver data.


It plugs into the Telemetry port of your APM or Pixhawk and then into the SMart Port of the X8R receiver. Then on your Taranis just select what telemetry data to show on each Telemetry screen. You can have quite a lot of data being fed from the APM or Pixhawk shown on the Taranis and you can also setup the Taranis to provide audible warnings as required.


See the video above for a demo of it in action.

Bought this to connect my APM 2.6 to my Taranis X9D+ via an FrSky X8R. The board works beautifully and Peter was a great help in navigating some minor software version issues. Great kit and brilliant support! (Posted on 26/08/2017)

The mavlink interface is a cleaver bit of kit which connects APM or Pixhawk Mavlink capable FCs to 3DR telemetry receivers. The setup is documented on the website, with all required files and short videos to guide you through the process. Droneshop.biz will also make custom cables for your installation to order if required.
A very useful solution to enhance your telemetry options on your multi-rotor vehicle. (Posted on 20/07/2017)
Great product, personally I need a lesson Review by Jasper

Ease of use
Ease of use is still a small problem, I haven't figured out how to get everything going, I did upload all files but can't get the modes to my 6 position switch. And need to take the quad apart because my rx is beneath the APM.

I really need to get to know more about it before I can start using it. (Posted on 15/01/2017)

Excellent addition to the drone Review by tim

Ease of use
Firstly this is an excellent addition to any pixhawk / taranis controlled drone, it gives accurate telemetry data, gps, speed, power usage, flight time etc takes a lot of the uncertainty out of flying with the flight mode confirmation so you know exactly what mode the flight controller is in and what its current task is if it's in auto mode eg: rtl, landing etc highly recommended if you have a taranis and pixhawk combo (Posted on 25/06/2016)

This Mavlink telemetry adapter is excellent, just plug in and follow the instructions provided on the Youtube channel and you're away. It provides so much information, battery status, altitude, ground speed, arm state to name but a few. It even allows you to see the orientation of your craft relative to home, which is really handy if your video feed breaks up.
All in all an excellent purchase, well pleased (Posted on 14/06/2016)

Use this in my Bix3 along with my Taranis X9E and have found it to be a really useful bit of kit - Works along side my MinimOSD and ground station telemetry adaptor without any issues. Certainly have no hesitation in recommending this to anyone. Advice from Peter when needed was prompt and helpful. (Posted on 12/06/2016)

I got this to upgrade from the old style no usb model to enable telemetry in the latest opentx firmware for 2.1 on the Taranis. Easy to set up thanks to the information on the website and videos. Works really well and can be easily updated. (Posted on 23/05/2016)

works great! Review by Richard

This things works great with the script Peter wrote and includes free as a download. Displays all the information like sat count, hdop, voltage, etc plus a nice mini screen showing the direction it's aimed in relation to you so if it's ever out of sight you can still get home. After getting this board I rarely feel the need to mess around with the ground control station anymore this gives all the information you would want right on your radio!! The best part is you don't need a small handful of sensors it simply uses the one in the pixhawk or apm that already has all that!! So it's really an awesome marriage of two products.
