Hello. I’m having issues with QGC not receiving RSSI signal from the Transmitter (Taranis X9D+2019) The transmitter and RF icon at the top of QGC is dark.
QGC does pick up telemetry from both the PixHawk FMU v3 autopilot and external sensors connected to it.
The artificial horizon and compass respond to me moving the craft. I am getting good GPS locks. That is all transmitted by a 915 MHz telemetry radio pair that came bundled with the autopilot.
If I plug the ground telemetry unit into a USB port on my PC, QGC can receive the 915MHz telemetry. Yet it will swear it’s Disconnected until I plug the autopilot directly into a USB port.
When I try calibrating the joysticks in QGC it halts with error message "GGC detected 0 radio channels. PixHawk needs 5 channels.
It’s a hexacopter, so I have a minimum of six channels for motors plus Flight mode channel, RTL channel set up in the X9D (so far). I have 16 or maybe 32 channels total available.
I am getting good RSSI numbers from both the onboard Receivers on the X9D, but GQC doesn’t seem to be getting the news. The Taranis uses 2.5GHz (I think) on its internal RF.
I am puzzled about what to do next. Do I need some special usb dongle to let GQC “hear” my X9D’s RF signal?
I need all this apparently in order to test spin my motors using GGC. Always errors present, preventing passing a preflight.
Even after performing the Compass Dance and (apparently) getting “all greens”.
My head is spinning…Why aren’t my Motors?
