The Drotek telemetry system base on 3DR Radio system and 100% compatible. It's designed as an open source Xbee replacement radio set, offering a lower price, longer range and superior performance.
The 915MHz is available in the following configurations: serial board (for the air) and USB (for the ground). The system provides a full-duplex link using HopeRF's HM-TRP modules running custom, open source firmware. Interface to the module is via standard 5V-tolerant TTL serial / FTDI USB serial.
Firmware upgrades and configuration are fully supported in the APM Mission Planner. Configuration is also possible through the 3DR Radio configurator and AT commands.
