    Radiolink MiniPix APM is a low cost version of PixRacer V1.0. From a user point of view, it features all the functionalities of a Pixracer but doesn’t have a FSR port.
    My MiniPix runs ArduCopter 3.5.3

    Can I find any way to connect my receiver (XSR) to one of the Telemetry port of the APM? This port bears 6 wires using 1.25mm pitch JST-GH connectors, providing signals as follows :
    Pin Signal Volt
    1 (red) VCC +5V
    2 (blk) TX (OUT) +3.3V
    3 (blk) RX (IN) +3.3V
    4 (blk) CTS (IN) +3.3V
    5 (blk) RTS (OUT) +3.3V
    6 (blk) GND GND

    Thanks very much for your kind support!

    Hi Guillaume,

    Just like on a PixRacer, the Radiolink MiniPix APM has 6-pin JST-GH telemetry ports that follow the DroneCode standard.

    Therefore, the Pixhawk 2/Pixhawk 3 telemetry cable that we offer is compatible, and can be connected to either the TELEM1, TELEM2, or GPS/I2C port of your MiniPix: http://www.craftandtheoryllc.com/store/ct-telemetry-cable-for-frsky-radios/?wccp_component_selection%5B1493928886%5D=4183

    I know for a fact that the Pixhawk 2/Pixhawk 3 telemetry cable works on TELEM1 or TELEM2 of the PixRacer, and it will be no different on your MiniPix.

    Thanks a lot for your quick answer!
    Does this mean i also need to buy the X8R receiver in place of the XSR?
    Can I send you back both receiver and telemetry cable for a replacement/refund in this case?
    Thanks very much again

    Hi Ron,

    Use the Pixhawk 2 telemetry cable you purchased along with the X4R adapter and connect as shown (illustration is for Pixhawk 1):
    https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/ALEAAOSwPapbEUKO/s-l1600.jpg

    If you have a FLVSS or MLVSS sensor, connect it in between, the cable and the adapter, where the blue dotted line is in the illustration above (you would also need a male to male servo adapter to make the connections).

    If the MINI PIX is like the PixRacer, TELEM1 is SERIAL1, so set SERIAL1_PROTOCOL to 10 and make sure that all other serial ports are set to something other than 3, 4, or 10, as only one serial port can be sued for FrSky telemetry at a time.

    If you’re still having issues, please do not hesitate to email us with pictures, ArduPilot configuration or other information to: [email protected]
