Re: GPS + Vario problem

Thanks for you help.. It now all starts to fall into place...

Now i have a working GPS with Vario :-)

GPS + Vario problem

Hi I've recently built a Openx gps sensor following this thread here http://openrcforums.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=86&t=10472 No one was more surprised than me when it actually worked. All picked up Ok in adding new sensors on my Taranis. I have now tried to add a vario using a GY-63 board, I connec...

Re: GPS taking 10mins to fix location

Just been messing about again with the GPS, I have it daisy chained with a vario to an X8R receiver with the vario first in line, I have now swapped them over with the GPS first in line. Resting the nose of the model by the window sill inside the house the GPS locked on within a minute or so... and ...

GPS taking 10mins to fix location

I've recently received a frsky GPS module, whilst it works well being able to output the log file straight to Google earth via a KMZ file i'm finding it can take over 10 mins to fix its location.. The GPS PDF file says it should fix in 30secs.. Is it normal for such a long time or do i have a dodgy ...

Hi I'm having problem with air-brakes on my Salto. I've based my template on a file from the forum and adapted it for my use. It's for a six servo wing with ailerons, flaps and air-brakes with a Vee tail.. I used the program before for a F3F model with a few changes but since I've added air brakes i...

Re: Taranis Vario problem

I've found the new Vario download but in the PDF file it mentions a SPC (FrSky Smart Port Converter) to connect between the FrSky FrUSB-3 (USB) and the smart port, but i cannot find a SPC anywhere on the Frsky website ? Does it exist ?

Re: Taranis Vario problem

Mine locks up on probably every flight, as Rob said cycling the vario appears to work most times, just a bit annoying... Mine seems to lock up around 50mtrs, not sure speed has any bearing at it tends to lock up straight from launch as I'm climbing in slope lift. There's mention of the firmware bug ...
