I am embarking on this new hobby as completely uninformed. So please forgive me if I ask ‘Newbie’ questions.
I want to build a large fixed wing uav, capable of mapping and possibly doing some search and rescue work. As my first build I selected the eachine atomrc Killer Whale in kit form. In an effort to get the most bang for my buck I thought I would go with the Flysky Paladin PL-18 Transmitter. If I purchase it from Hobbyking it comes with 2 receivers, one being the ultra small and lightweight FTR16S.
Knowing that most companies are big on promise, but notoriously short on specifics I thought I would ask and see if anyone had tested this particular receiver. Flysky claims the receiver can output; IBUS; SBUS; and PPM. I would like to stay with one of the digital protocols. I am going to be using the mRobotic’s Pixracer R15 flight controller which is supposed to accept a Futaba S.Bus & S.Bus2 input. My question on this subject is, are the Futaba S.Bus protocol and the Flysky protocol going to be compatible? If not I suppose I can use the PPM signal as a second choice.
I will break this off for now. Thanks in advance for your insight!
