Problems with ping1090i

pixhawk

#1

Hi

I bought a ping1090i to integrate on my pixhawk 2.1 (Cube) but as soon as I connect it after doing all the configuration it messes up my FC. I loose gps reception and my imu is getting errors. Does someone here have a clue what could be wrong?


#2

Which firmware are you running on your pixhawk?


#3

Im running the PX4 firmware, another problem is that it dosn’t seem to show on flightradar. We tried it next to a airport while talking to the tower at the same time to see if they could se us on the radar but they couldn’t.

Hi, when using it with a pixhawk it will only send local aircrafts position back to the pixhawk. The ADS-B transmitter data is captured via the onboard GPS/Sensors on the ping 1090i.

That said, if it is not transmitting any data, have you followed the setup guide

Particularly the control selection, where you have 3 options:

  • TX enabled: Transmit ADS-B message at one second intervals, receive is also enabled.
  • Receive: Receive only, transmit disabled.
  • Standby: ADS-B in/out disabled.

Before it will transmit you also need a valid ICAO number (converted to 8 digit hexadecimal) and callsign

Hope this helps :slight_smile:
