This adapter board converts the Mavlink data from the APM or Pixhawk to Smart Port X8R Taranis receiver data.

It plugs into the Telemetry port of your APM or Pixhawk and then into the SMart Port of the X8R receiver. Then on your Taranis just select what telemetry data to show on each Telemetry screen. You can have quite a lot of data being fed from the APM or Pixhawk shown on the Taranis and you can also setup the Taranis to provide audible warnings as required.

See the video above for a demo of it in action.

    Neat little item, well made, saves a lot of weight and wiring with my Taranis X9D+ and X8R. Doesn’t cluuter up the viewing screen either

    Excellent Kit and Support
    Bought this to connect my APM 2.6 to my Taranis X9D+ via an FrSky X8R. The board works beautifully and Peter was a great help in navigating some minor software version issues. Great kit and brilliant support!

    Great quality, quick delivery, good support
    The mavlink interface is a cleaver bit of kit which connects APM or Pixhawk Mavlink capable FCs to 3DR telemetry receivers. The setup is documented on the website, with all required files and short videos to guide you through the process. Droneshop.biz will also make custom cables for your installation to order if required.
    A very useful solution to enhance your telemetry options on your multi-rotor vehicle.

    Ease of use is still a small problem, I haven’t figured out how to get everything going, I did upload all files but can’t get the modes to my 6 position switch. And need to take the quad apart because my rx is beneath the APM.
