This section contains the hardware connection of XBLink 5G.

Link 5G hardware connection mainly includes SIM, Antenna, XBCamera V2, Flight Controller and Power up.

Nano SIM Card

XBLink 5G supports push-push NanoSim connector.

Insert your SIM card into the SIM Card slot, the chip contacts have to face up.

The SIM card is recessed into the enclosure and you might need a tool to push it into the socket. You can hear a click when the card is inserted.

To remove the SIM card, push onto the card with a tool. You can hear a "click" and the card will be pushed out of the enclosure. To remove the card again, push it in once more and it will pop out.


Connect the four LTE antennas to the MMCX connectors.

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

XBCam V2

Connect XBCam V2 to USB type C port.

Please don't connect any HDMI cameras like Gopro,... to CSI port. This is CSI not HDMI port.

Note: We currently support variety of Cameras and Gimbals in here

For another payload via CSI or HDMI, please contact us.

Connect Flight Controller (Telemetry)

You can use Telemetry 1 or 2 of Pixhawk for connection with XBLink 5G via COM1/2 (optional) or COM3 port.

Note: Config baud rate of Pixhawk to 57600, SERIAL1_BAUD (Default 57, it means 57600), SERIAL1_PROTOCOL: 2 (MAVLink 2)

Power up

XBLink 5G supports 7-30V voltage input. We highly recommend 3-4 S battery or 12V DC UBEC (minimum 3A) to power (6S battery is possible but make sure it's high quality and low discharge)

If you use low quality or high discharge 6S battery for drone, we are not responsible for damage.


Once XBLink 5G has green color continue to the next step to connect it to XBStationPillotApp.
