Hi all,

I just thought that would be great to have a telemetry link quality indicator next to the RX-RSSI, just like in PC MissionPlanner, to be sure the telemetry link is acceptable within high ranges.

Hi,

yes, indeed, first I thought the indicator in the upper bar is the RX-link RSSI, but no, it is the telemetry link quality indeed.
But then I think another indicator should be used for RX_RSSI value, since both link qualities are important.
Anyway, thanks for reply!!!

Best Regards
Adrian

I have no idea where to find that value, you could you post a screenshot of
MP maybe?

Hi,

Yes. You can connect your receiver's RSSI output (if present) to an analog input on the apm.
Here are the description of the RSSI parameters:
http://copter.ardupilot.com/wiki/arducopter-parameters/#Receiver_RSSI_sensing_pin_ArduCopterRSSI_PIN

I'm using Minimosd with minimosd extra code. It has RSSI value display and also in the config panel, you can set up the RSSI range, for proper percentage calculation:
kpkivgs3
Then it shows the RSSI in percentage.

In MP I found the raw value here:
kpkivgs

Please note that currently I don't have the describer RSSI_RANGE parameter in the parameters list (don't know why, I'm using AC3.1), but with the settings of minimosd mentioned above the RX RSSI reading is fully functional since I can setup the range according to the used receiver myself.

I hope this helps a bit.

It'll be implemented as a telemetry item in #633.
