Quickstart Guide
This section provides a Quickstart guide
When you received XBLink, all software has been installed, you can check your credential on your box. Note: Please do not install any software or flash XBLink

Insert your nano SIM card

Insert nano SIM to XBLink

Connect LTE antennas

Note: Be careful with the antenna port. Remove or Install it in a straight angle. We are not responsible if the antenna is damaged due to physical impact
Connect LTE antennas to XBLink

Connect Flight Controller

You can use Telemetry 1 or 2 of pixhawk for connection with XBLink. Telemetry 1 is normally used for Telemetry Radio (like: RFD900...) and Telemetry 2 for XBLink.
XBLink connect to Pixhawk Cube

Connect Camera

Note: For another payload via CSI or HDMI, please conntact us

Power

XBLink supports 7-30V voltage input. You can directly connect 3 ~ 6S battery to power XBLink.
Note: Please check carefully, avoid wrong between Power Port and UART Port (also use for Cooling Fan), both is JST-GH 4 Pin. We are not responsible for this confusion.
More detail, follow this section: https://docs.xbstation.com/xblink/quick-start

Done

XBLink connect to Pixhawk Cube

Step 2: Connect Flight Controller

You can use Telemetry 1 or 2 of pixhawk for connection with XBLink. Telemetry 1 is normally used for Telemetry Radio (like: RFD900...) and Telemetry 2 for XBLink.
The baudrate on XBLink must be same with Pixhawk baudrate (Telemery 1 or 2).
  • For ArduPilot: SERIAL2_BAUD = 57(Default, it means 57600), SERIAL2_PROTOCOL=2 (MAVLink 2)
  • For PX4: SER_TEL2_BAUD = 57600 (Default 921600, you should change to 57600 for save data)
Note: If you have problem with Telemetry 2 port, you can use Telemetry 1 Port (Default baud rate Telemetry 1 is 57600, MAVLink:1). XBLink still works normally with both MAVLink 1 and MALink 2.

Step 3: Connect XBStationPilotApp and Ground Station Software

  • Open XBStationPilotApp
  • Login (Username and password in XBLink box)
  • Connect to GCS
