Hi:

I am retired electrical engineer from Florida. A great fan of your training videos.

I hope to learn from you:

To connect Flysky FSi6B Receiver to ESP32-CAM

To connect ESP32-CAM to Cytron MDDS30

Similar than your video "Flysky FS-16X with Arduino" 

I hope to learn to use the iBus. My issues so far: 

The voltage levels at FSi6B outputt are 5.0 V. The ESP32-CAM uses 3.3 V.

I plan to use a level converter.

The ESP32-CAM has only one usefull UART.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. In the mean time I will continue watching your videos, they are great.

If you need more than 1 uart, there are other camera boards available. 

 

First computer 1959. Retired from my own computer company 2004.

Sure you can learn to be a programmer, it will take the same amount of time for me to learn to be a Doctor.

Hi @jacinto,

   Welcome to the forum.

   As you probably realise, this part of the forum is about introducing someone, rather than discussing a project, etc., So you might consider starting a new topic in an appropriate part of the forum, to discuss your project.

In the meantime,  a first impression is that ESP32-CAM is probably not suitable for a project requiring several I/O ports, as most of the I/O ports are preallocated for the camera and SDcard, leaving very few for other tasks. Thus you may like to consider either a different microcontroller/camera (as Ron @zander has already suggested), or adding a second microcontroller board, so the ESP32-CAM can specialise on the camera duties, and the second microcontroller performs the remainder of the tasks.

The latter approach might be easier to imagine as starting with Bill's (@dronebot-workshop) design as a base, and adding an ESP32-CAM as a 'peripheral' to the base.

Of course, this is only a wild suggestion to consider, and may prove impractical when the details are considered, but hopefully it will inspire you to think of some better ideas.

Good luck with your project, Dave

I worked on some of the issues you mention.  I wanted to be able to put my own processor on a RC plane and make my own autopilot (yes, I know there are plenty off the shelf).  I also wanted to send other telemetry data via the FlySky using the second iBus.

@davee 

Thanks for your sugestions.

Sorry for the intruduction/question mix.

I expend some time learning how to use the forum and hopefully

I will be able to use the correct location.
