Quickstart Guide

This section provides a Quickstart guide

When you received XBLink Plus, all software has been installed, you can check your credential on your box.

Please do not install any software or flash XBLink Plus.

1. Insert Nano SIM Card

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.

2. Connect 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

Antenna installation and removal instructions: here

3. Connect 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.

4. Connect Flight Controller

You can use Telemetry 1 or 2 of Pixhawk for connection with XBLink Plus 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)

5. Power up

XBLink Plus 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.

6. Done

Once XBLink Plus has green color continue to the next step.

Step 2: Configure Flight Controller

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

The baud rate on XBLink Plus must be same with Pixhawk baud rate (Telemetry1 or 2).

  • For ArduPilot : SERIAL2_BAUD = 57(Default, it means 57600),


More information: here

  • 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 Plus still works normally with both MAVLink 1 and MALink 2.
