Looking for guidance on using ROS with a Spektrum 6650 DX6e 6CH Transmitter and a DSM Receiver

I am looking for guidance on using ROS with a Spektrum 6650 DX6e 6CH Transmitter and a DSM Quad Race Receiver connected to a BeagleBone Blue (BBBL) via its JST interface for DSM2 radios to control various servos and/or motors attached to appropriate BBBL ports. The BBBL is running Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS and ROS Kinetic Version 1.12.12.

The following links discuss how to make these connections under the BBBL’s default Debian roboticscape package:

But I have found no resources for making similar connections via ROS.
