FrSky Telemetry Output

To use FrSky Telemetry output, you use the spare telemetry input (J5 on Flight Core, J1010 on VOXL Flight) and configure the TEL_FRSKY_CONFIG setting.

For example, power the receiver with 5VDC using the spare PPM input (J9 andJ1003 on Flight Core VOXL Flight respectively) pins 1 and 3 (5VDC and GND).

Then, route the telemetry cable to telemetry input (J5 on Flight Core, J1010 on VOXL Flight).

Using QGroundControl, go to Parameters > Telemetry > TEL_FRSKY_CONFIG and set to TELEM1.
