Re: Unisens-E for FrSky / OpenTX

Hi, Long time since I have been reading / posting to this forum but I can confirm, support to UniSens-E for FrSky is added. Today I just tested one. Just plugged in cables and everything was working instantly out of the box. At the on table tests, vario seems to be great. And it's very great to have...

Re: Taranis and high precision vario questions

Ask FrSky... I guess the old Vspd calculation algorithm was so noisy/imprecise that they thought it was better to "hide" it with steps of 0.5m/s. Okay, I just did that -> http://www.frsky-rc.com/BBS/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=488&p=1760&sid=383dfd0b10b307b6a239de16493befcb#p1760 :) But they haven't answer...

Re: Taranis and high precision vario questions

It may be the vario never outputs a value higher than 10.230. I'm suspicious as 1023 is the largest value that can be represented by a 10-bit binary number. Mike. Hi, I'm still wondering this one. Now when frsky released newest firmware for the vario sensor the resolution has been improved dramatic...

Re: Display unreadable at cold weather

Maybe it does not have to be so accurate. Just some adjustment for darker if it gets colder (below 0C). And of course we have to think what are the steps for the contrast for each temperature drop range. (like example for each -5 degree drop it gets adjusted xx steps).

Re: SBUS does not work

Why it is 992?

Eleven bits = 2047 / 2 = 1023 .... how many digital steps there might be then on Taranis SBUS?

Re: SBUS does not work

Just thinkering here that the Taranis PWM pulse is 1500us by default when servo is centered and it should then send SBUS value 991 which converts throug decoder as 1520+(991-1023)*0.625=1500us so, the servo should be in a same position with decoder or without it (direct connection to receiver).
