Re: two current sensors on one arduino

Indeed there is only one slot for current data. But a few for voltage. A workaround is to scale and transmit the voltage output of a 2nd current sensor and change unit and name in OpenTX later.

Re: Using Vario Alt for rate (ascend/descend per minute) announcements

I consider the following approach: - Setup a calculated sensor from the (Alt) telemetry value. A calculated value (called "Rate") of type "distance" in meters. - Setup a timer, that triggers every minute (for one second). - Setup a function on the start of that timer edge to playvalue "Rate" and im...

Don't worry. It is nearly impossible to damage a iXJT in this context.

Re: openXsensor slimsize GPS Vario for DLG and F5J

So, am I right that to have a GPS rate at 5 or 10 , I have to use U-Center to modify BN-220 and adapt rate in openXsensor sketch? No, it's easier. You can simply change this line in oXs_config_advanced.h (see 9 - GPS): #define GPS_REFRESH_RATE 5 // rate at which GPS sent new data; select between 1,...

Re: openXsensor slimsize GPS Vario for DLG and F5J

In sketches from this thread MS5611 is enabled by default. In this case oXs will not find a GPS until the baro was found during startup. If you do not connect a MS5611 then this line in oXs_config_basic.h: #define FIRST_BARO_SENSOR_USE MS5611 // select between NO_BARO , MS5611, GY86 , BMP085 , BMP18...

Re: GPS only - troubles with latest version

255 is perfect, since it is 2.55 * 100
The ratio for factor 1 is:

Precision 0 --> 255 (Temp)
Precision 1 --> 25.5 (e.g. Current)
Precision 2 --> 2.55 (e.g. Acc)

Took me some years to find out :)

Re: Frsky updates

As the oldest looking in this forum I want to say, that a lot of people are very grateful, for the work some smart people are doing for the community. Without people like the OpenTX devs, Mike, mstrens, Pascal I would for sure not fly RC anymore. It is a lot of fun with you all! Keep going please.

RF-Interference as well as Fresnel-, Doubler-Effects can cause sudden frequency shifting, especially when tx and rx center frequencies are not well matched and the AFC (automatic frequncy correction/control) is running at the edge of its contoll range.

Re: Lost alt setting for vario special function.

It will only show up when you have started a sensor search in the telemetry tab with connected and working sensor once. You shoud see Alt and Vspd from the vario then. For vario tones you want Vspd as source.

Another thing - I provided a link, where user, named udo tested and saw problem. And he says "The problem was detectable with any kind of TX/Rx combo"... Correct.

I believe the problem is with the new line of TX and RX probably used different hardware and different software. I would like to hear if somebody recorded the same problem with an TX with XJT module and an old X4R or X8R rx. I'm watching this issue closely from the beginning and have never seen thi...

Re: Frsky updates

I'm also sure the update is a trojan horse. But there are definitely lockouts and unwanted servo movements. You wrote, that TX out of tolerance can not cause this. If a CRC error can also not cause this, what else? Is it simply a firmware bug, like it was with X12 when it came out?

What is interesting for me is that not all RX or TX are affected make me believe that they used different firmware in the new product line of Tx/RX with D16/LBT protocol. I think, there is not enough data about affected RX or TX models to be sure, but it would be a good explanation for my problem, ...

If FrSky does not automatically tune RX, is this a possible cause for the watched lockouts, when TX frequency is out of tolerance? What do you think?

FWIW I've asked Pascal Langer (MPM) about the frequency tuning with FrSky. I think it is OK to publish his answer: "Re: FrSky frequency calibration The original frsky RXs don't do it.

CC2500 X-tal frequency drift with temperature may happen(and happened with poor quality X-tals) and if happened it will worsen and the rx will not recover.The lockout is limited in time and rx recovered .I don't think the lockout is caused by a frequency drift.
