The operation of XLRS systems, is significantly different and better than the standard RC(Radio Control) transmitter-receiver systems.
This makes the XLRS system more agile and versatile allowing things that can not be done or imagined with normal RC system.
- Flat dara transmission (RAW).
- Mixtures and parameters of the RC model in the XLRS receiver, not in the transmitter.
- More RC channels.
- Different concept of RC channel and many more possibilities.
In this link you will find more detailed information on the concepts of receiver operation, joysticks and mixes.
Unlike a standard RC system that sends 10 or 12 RC channels, the XLRS system sends the digital values of joysticks, encoders, buttons, switches and push buttons.
The data is sent flat (RAW), that is, without mixes.
The configuration of the UAV or drone is in the XLRS receiver and not in the XLRS Transmitter.
Due to this way of working there are numerous advantages:
– You can use different XLRS transmitters with a single drone or UAV without the need to configure anything. In other words, there may be several pilots in the distance and “pass” flight control from one pilot to another instantly. For this you only have to deactivate the radio of the XLRS transmitter using the hot keys, even when another pilot has control of the Drone, you can still receive telemetry on your XLRS transmitter.
– You can also fly many drones or UAV configured differently with a single XLRS transmitter. Combining this with the list of authorized equipment (LEA) will be able to pilot or several fleets of up to 255 drones or 16 specific UAVs with exact IP.
The possibilities are awesome!!!
Mixtures and Parameters of the model in the receiver, not in the transmitter.
Multiple advantages in professional systems.
There isn’t need to change the model in the XLRS transmitter.
More security and fewer errors by not having to change the RC model in the XLRS transmitter when several RC models are used.
In the configuration of the devices, it is sufficient to use an IP RF subnet or include the authorized XLRS receivers in the LEA (List of Authorized Equipment).
When sending the data without mixtures and mixtures are in each model locally, you can command several RC models even if they are very different.
Each mix has 3 assignable inputs to any Joystick, encoder, button or other mix output..
There aren’t longer 8 or 12 channels, if not many more. The concept of RC channels changes.
Although the concept is different, by comparison you can use 13 channels (Configurable up to 16) in the SPPM output (which is normally connected to the autopilot), plus 1 for each servo output in each device (receiver, osd, etc).
In an XLRS receiver, maximum up to 16 RC channels can be connected, for example: 13CH RC (SPPM) + 3CH RC (Physical).
If you use 2 XLRS receivers or an XLRS channel extender module you can control up to 32 RC channels or more, depending on the devices used in the Airborne system (RC vehicle).
The mixes are independent in each XLRS receiver and in the XOSD video transmitter.
Each physical servo output can be assigned to a joystick, a button, an encoder, a switch or a mix…
In traditional RC transmitters, a channel corresponds to a function (Ailerons, Motor, etc.) and has a single servo output.
In XLRS systems, each element of the XLRS Transmitter (We will call XLRS objects from now) such as a joystick axis, a button, an encoder, etc., can be assigned to one or more servos or mix or mix input in the XLRS receiver or in any XLRS device (another RX XLRS, XOSD, etc) that has output of servos.
Of course it can be configured in part as a traditional RC transmitter or use the new functions.
Each XLRS device in flight (receiver, osd, etc) has its own mixes and assignments of objects to its servo outputs.
36 basic objects: 18 main pilot and 18 auxiliary co-pilot/observer.
