esc32v3 compatibility with Pixhawk CAN

Hey all,

I was wondering if anyone has integrated the esc32v3's with a Pixhawk FCU via CAN (both use 5V).
Is it as simple as giving the esc32v3s an ID in the config utility, and referencing the IDs on the Pixhawk (via QGC)?
If not, what more must be done to make them compatible?

Thanks,

Pixhawk uses uavcan as message protocol, esc32 does have a different protocol, so I can't see how it could work.

How does the txrx system work for the esc32v3?
(Any documentation of data structures required for reading/writing to esc32v3s please).

At the top right of this page there is a Search window. Type in "ESC32 serial connection" and you will find the answer to your question.

Hi,

any chance you know the esc32 can-protocol or a better documentation than the code itself?
