Re: OpenXSensor SPORT Interface

Reinhard Unfortunately my version of excel does not support macros so its not as easy as it could be. I use the attached spreadsheet to do the conversion of the co=ordinates, add the telemetry data into sheet 1 and it calculates the co-ordinates into kml format in sheet 2 just make sure the gps data...

Hi Reinhard

Just for interest and show the accuracy of Gps location I've include a google earth trace of a typical flight.
The attachment is in kml format so just remove .txt extension and it can loaded directly into google earth

Thanks Michel

It all looked and sounded good and agreed the gps accuracy is not good.

Re: OpenXSensor SPORT Interface

Hi Michel I've finally got some good weather to test the latest release r204 with the X8R, There was no sign of previous error blips, even at the higher filtering I found it much more sensitive, running the -+0.2 dead band hardly gave any silent periods. The sound on climbing was very good, I think ...

Re: Vario upgrade problems

To my knowledge there is no easy way currently other than adding conversion into the tx program. Of coarse if you log the values you can read into an excel spreadsheet and add a conversion lto the values later. Note the primary use of vspd is to provide the vario tones. But I believe the next versio...

Re: OpenXSensor SPORT Interface

Morning brain fade, I wasn't on metric, T2 is now 0 I confused myself because the speed reports in kph.

I'll setup the new code for next slope session on sunday

Re: OpenXSensor SPORT Interface

Conditions were a little extreme today, wind was so strong it was difficult to hear vario beeps, but from what I could here they sounded ok matching with sink and lift.

I've quickly loaded the goggle version and setup my parameters flashed the vario in 5 minutes

just off to slope so I've not tested well but sensitivity control looks good, alt 10sec looks the same.

I'll check further once Im back

Re: Vario upgrade problems

The FRSKY upgrade is well worth doing, it really improves this core performance on the vario.

The vario devices do not do any unit conversions it is done by the TXOpen running on the TX

Re: OpenXSensor SPORT Interface

Hi Michel I didn't bother to reflash the vario, I'm confident it's the same as the code file label indicates same build day 24thjan2014 as the beta version. As it is much better than the other versions I guess they thought there's no downside releasing it, hopefully they will continue the developmen...

Re: OpenXSensor SPORT Interface

Michel
I've noticed a few random pings running - + .2 dead band while static testing, but I did n't check it out on the slope, but will do next visit.
Interesting the altitude drift on my sensor is less using the original OxS software.

I'll do some more testing when I get a chance

Michel & Mike,
Just back from work and the weather looks good.
I've just patch Mike's new version to run on T1 & T2 and hope to get some live comparisons of the new versions of oxs & Frsky HiP

Looks like you've been busy while I've been working !

Re: OpenXSensor SPORT Interface

That was my problem, I'll do some static tests I did n't get it sorted before I was picked up, conditions were pretty useless anyway.
We have another massive storm due tomorrow and Saturday but hopefully I ll be back testing Sunday.
I ll let you know how I get on

Re: OpenXSensor SPORT Interface

I'm being pick up for slope in 5mins, but I managed to compile with sensitivity and Vspd it is just altitude that causes the compile error.

I think there may be an issue there, I look when I get a chance, still the vspd is the many interest

Re: OpenXSensor SPORT Interface

Hi Mike,

Michel has been doing quite a bit of work with the filtering.

I've sorted out my flying test beds so I can run in parallel either the Beta Frsky Hi Precision Sensor or GPS with the OxS to evaluate the performance.

I can test any improvement live weather permitting.
