Hello out there! So I’m building my first quadcopter, felt perfectly confident going into it and now I see I have several questions that have brought my build to a halt. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here’s what I have:
HolyBro x500 kit Link to the kit
Radiolink transmitter/receiver: Radiolink AT10II Transmitter / Receiver R12DS
HRB 4S 14.8v 5000mAh Lipo XT60 Batteries
RunCam 4k Dual lens Camera: Camera
Flysight Black Pearl Monitor
Crazepony FPV Transmitter Rush Tank 5.8GHz
Okay so here’s where I have questions:
- How in the heck does the Radiolink R12DS connect to the pixhawk 4 unit? The connections on the existing wires are not direct plug ins the the style on the pixhawk. And is the RadioLink Radiolink AT10II even a compatible unit for the pixhawk? Is there a better suggestion for a tx/rx in this price range?
UPDATE: I saw another video on the tx/rx, do I have my wiring correct now? See update pic below. I also see that the PRM-01 sensor provides telemetry data on the battery status. Is this strictly for the battery whereas the HolyBro telemetry radio provides additional info? Am I doubling up on telemetry or are both useful in their separate ways?
- I have the RunCam dual camera and the Rush video transmitter, is this a compatible setup and reasonable for the X500? And assuming yes, where am I connecting these wires to?
Telemetry Radios: I see the kit came with two radios, am I using two in my setup? I see it plugs directly into the pixhawk 4 unit, that’s easy enough. So next, does it simply collect data and send it out to my RadioLink transmitter? Also, what is the second radio for???
On the motors, they connect to the small adapter, which then connects to i/o PWMOUT port. I have seen this setup on the HolyBro instructions. Do it matter which plug goes to which pins? Do I need motor one going to pin 1 for example?
- On the PM07 power management board, is the only thing connecting to it just the black and red wired from the motors, and the power cable from it to the pixhawk?
Thank you in advance, I’ve spent hours searching for answers and I want to get my questions out there as I continue to search. I swear I though I had this setup down and understood!
Thank you in advance,
