I decided I want to build my first drone ( not racing drone ). I am quiet good with electronics, software etc so that won't be problem.
But currently I am trying to choose parts for my build, and I am overwhelmed. Because I want flight controller supported by ArduPilot firmware ( https://ardupilot.org/rover/docs/common-autopilots.html ) , I am going with Holybro Kakute F4 - seems reasonable price and features
But I am having problem with selecting receiver. I have Transmiter Devo 7E which deviation firmware that supports DSM2 and DSMX. I have my Nano Blade heli working with it.
So I am looking for receiver that supports DSMX transmitter Spectrum satellite plus will support telemetry.
I think I am just reading receiver specs wrong, but I can't seem to find anything that suits my need.
I've used a few spektrum receivers but can't say that any of them gave me any sort of telemetry or RSSI (but I did feel they are very good with regard to low latency and fairly solid connection I only once ever lost control signal for more than a moment and it was because there was a hill between me and the quad).
Anyway looks like they have started to roll out some new telemetry focused changes:
Which project is dead, not following, to me looks like spectrum released receiver and made version of betaflight for it based on BF 4.1, BF incorporated the changes and so the fork is no longer needed and you should see this option as a drop-down in BF 4.2 (pretty sure latest)
