Where to Buy

PX4 Configuration

The CUAV P8 Radio comes pre-configured (baud rate 57600, broadcast mode) for use with PX4. It should require no additional setup if connected to TELEM1 OR TELEM2.

On some flight controllers, or if used with a different serial port, you may need to configure the port for MAVLink communication.
