I think we will need to do some calculations in order to know the maximum payload which the single module connected to QGC (e.g. 433Mhz telemetry module) can handle before it saturates in order to have stable link to all drones in a swarm. After that, I guess we can either:
- set the minimal set of of MAVLink messages, and then find the maximum number of vehicles that can be on the system, or
- set a maximum number of vehicles, and then determine the max set of MAVLink messages that can be accommodated
I believe the first option is more appropriate as it is important to specify the minimal (most important) set of MAVLink messages to be communicated.
Let me know if that makes sense to you.
