Hi Felix and Martin,
> did you already connect your xbee modem and disconnect the usb cable
again (that is normally only used for flashing).
Yes I did, but it stops to blink after 2-3 min I have done it.

The modem XBee-PRO-PKG USB 2.4GHz Comm Zigbee (Series 1) is used
I used X-CTU software. The baud was preselected as 57600, "Coordinator Enable"
for stand by modem and "end device" for airborne modem were preselected. I am
not sure it the baud rate is correct, if the modem of that type support it or

follows: .../link -d /dev/ttyUSB0 -s 9600 since the default baud rate on the
XBees is 9600 baud if I remember correctly.
Ok, and if 57600 baud is used, I suppose it should be changed to .../link -d
/dev/ttyUSB0 -s 57600 , does it right? So, I have done it like this, now three
grins (RSSI) are lighting constant, "Data Out" (orange) blinks high frequently,
"PWR" (red) blinks less frequently and "Data In" (green) doesn´t blink at all.
After 1-2 minutes they all stop lighting, excepted "PWR" (Power, red). But
after I restart the twog v1, using power cycle, all the light start lighting
for 15-20 sec and then stop.
The modem board has also DIP Switch with 2 Channels off/on which configuration
should be preselected on it?
I cannot understand how could I prove if the telemetry is presented or not.
Which A/C must I flash for my twog v1 for the test? Should I make some changes
according to baud rate in some of the *.xml files of the present A/C? Do the
changes influence the telemetry? How can I see that the modems are speaking to
each other (only lights or there is something else what can point a correct
Thank you for the patience to me.
