ARDUPILOT MEGA AUTOPILOT KIT (APM 2.8) compatibility


#1

I’d just only to know if ARDUPILOT MEGA AUTOPILOT KIT (APM 2.8) can work with Futaba R3008SB T-FHSS 2.4GHz S.Bus2 receiver? (Transmitter Futaba 10J - 10-Channel 2.4GHz Computer Radio System -). Thanks.

Hi
Three options here…
1, use a separate SBUS to PPM converter board
2, It’s possible to upload a software patch to the APM board which converts the PPM decoding to SBUS decoding
3, buy a PPM receiver, I use DELTA 8 on my Futaba T8J and it works great

Let us know what you want to do and we’ll provide further details

Thank you very much Stevietee. I think my choise will be the third option, but the second one seems to be very interesting. Can you provide me the link to that software patch and the instructions how to upload it on the board?
Thank you again.

Hi

I would stress that I have not done this, so cannot comment on it’s merits and some people have add problems, suggest you google or youtube for your own research

Good luck and let us know if you try it and what your thoughts on it are
