Short Description
Mavmodem combines mavlink and minimodem to send telemetry via fpv audio channels
Full Description


MAVmodem is a docker image that combines minimodem and MAVproxy to simplify the creation of a one way telemetry link over an FPV audio channel.

Using the audio channel of an FPV system we can reduce the number of transmitters on the APM powered vehicle. This may also aide pilots who do not possess an amature radio liscense get telemetry over a longer distance than bluetooth and APM telemetry module. An additional use case is that this may make it easier for pilots to choose between the 433MHz APM telemetry module and an LRS system (which majoritively run operate on the 433Mhz band).


- Some soldering skills
- Docker 1.7+
- A microcomputer like an Raspberry Pi

There's a great guide here to help running Docker on RPi

Using mavmodem

1. make build
2. make mavmodem (on the TX computer)

If you intend to use mavmodem on a a raspberry pi you should change the FROM image from FROM ubuntu:14.04 to FROM resin/rpi-raspbian. This will be scripted in later revisions.

Example Setup
