Hello everybody. For my latest project I have been experimenting with FrSky telemetry. I have a 9XR and since I did not want to risk the telemetry mod as yet, I have been trying to build an Arduino based display for telemetry data .
I have modified the code from here. Credit goes to the creator of this code.
I am using a FrSky DJT module with a D8R Plus receiver along with an Arduino Uno and standard 1602 LCD module
My setup is:
  • Jumper between D8R A1 and x pins
  • DIY voltage sensor to D8R pin A2
  • DJT Txd pin to Arduino pin A2
  • DJT Rxd pin to Arduino pin A3
  • standard connections for LCD display (as stated in the LiquidCrystal library)
This is my code
It currently displays the internal receiver voltage, battery voltage and the uplink and downlink RSSI.

Making a voltage sensor for FrSky telemetry is simple. As a disclaimer, I take no responsibility for any damaged caused by following these instruction. These are the required parts:
  • JST-XH connector (female in order to plug into the LiPo balance lead)
  • 10KΩ and 2.2KΩ resistors
  • Servo plug
Remove all but the signal wire from the servo plug and also remove the two middle wires from the JST-XH plug. Solder the resistors in series and then solder the 2.2K end to the negative wire of the JST-XH plug and 10K end to the positive wire. Add a tap between the resistors by soldering the signal wire in between the 2 resistors. If the receiver is being powered by the main battery, then there is no need to include a ground wire. Insulate all exposed contacts. This is the schematic:

FrSky Telemetry and Arduino

The theory of operation is simple. This circuit is nothing but a potential divider. The FrSky D8R can accept only up to 3.3V max so the voltage from the battery must be scaled down to below this and then scaled up again in the Arduino code or in the telemetry menu.

I plan to try and implement a current sensor using a hall effect sensor to provide a voltage directly proportional to the current. However, I would like some help in implementing due to the large currents involved. I do not think a shunt resistor would work here as the resistance would have to be very small yet it would need to be rated for a very high power.

Hi
Can you help ?
I do it, but it don't work, the lcd say "Waiting for data". Telemetry receive nothing.
I want only the volts and RSSI.
I have a DJT TX and Rx D8R II
Thx

Hi. I haven't looked at this project in a long time but your post inspired me to try it again. It is working perfectly fine, though I am using a newer version of the code adapted to run on an I2C LCD. The code I have linked to is a much older version and may have some issues. Please try this:

#include <SoftwareSerial.h>
#include <LCD.h>

#define DE_BUG                          // Change this to #define DEBUG if needed
#define DE_BUG_HEX
#define FRS_TX_PIN        A2            // not used
#define FRS_RX_PIN        A3            // telemetry data
#define FRAME_SIZE        12            // max 12 bytes
#define FRAME_RVLQ      0xFE            // second byte 0xFE - Remote Voltage and Link Quality
#define FRAME_USER      0xFD            // second byte 0xFD - User Data
#define DISP_INTERVAL    500            // ms

Thanks, for your answer.
now I am out, when I get home I test it.
I also have an lcd display ic2. I change some lines to make it work.
I think my problem is in the connection between tx DJT and arduino.

Hi.

It Doesn`t work

I only changed

//#include <LCD.h>
#include <LiquidCrystal_I2C.h>
#include <Wire.h>

and

//LiquidCrystal lcd(12, 11, 5, 4, 3, 2);
LiquidCrystal_I2C lcd(0x3f, 2, 1, 0, 4, 5, 6, 7, 3, POSITIVE);


My lcd is ok. It shows Waiting for data........ printing dots

I connected

frsky DJT               Arduino Mega

Gnd  -----------         Gnd
5v    -----------         5v
Tx     -----------        A3
Rx    -----------         A2

I also tried swapping A2 to A3 and it doesnt work

is that wrong?

Thanks.
