Where to Buy


TFmini can be connected to any unused serial port (UART), such as: TELEM2, TELEM3, GPS2 etc.

Parameter Setup

Configure the serial port on which the lidar will run using SENS_TFMINI_CFG. There is no need to set the baud rate (this is hard coded in the sensor driver as only one rate is supported).

If the configuration parameter is not available in QGroundControl then the tfmini driver may not be in firmware. For information on how to add it see:
