Re: openxsensor Feature Request: lost model buzzer

Ok, I've looked to the Sequencer description, but it seems to output a steady signal 0% or 100%, for each sequence. This works with things like led, but a piezoelectric buzzer requires an oscillating signal to work. In fact almost every guide found on Google suggests to use the "tone" function. I h...

Re: openxsensor Feature Request: lost model buzzer

I thinkyou can already do it with openXsensor if you set up the Sequencer.
Please read the doc in the file oXs_description.h

Re: New beta version of openXsensor (=openXvario)

oXs is listening periodically to a signal coming from the "locator receiver". when it get one signal, it sent a reply (with some data like GPS location and strength of received signal). It replies only when he get a request. locator receiver sent a request on regular basis (I would have to ckeck the...

Re: New beta version of openXsensor (=openXvario)

I replaced the version of oXsConfigurator on Github.
The new version support more parameters and protocols.
It also allows to read directly the doc provided in oXs_config_description.h

I did not test all parameters.
So, if you find bugs, just let me know

New version of oXs configurator

openXsensor offers lot of possibilities but the drawback is that setting up the configuration files (advanced and basic) can be quite difficult the first time you use it. In the past, a configurator application had been developped to make it easier but this application had not been updated and could...

Re: New beta version of openXsensor (=openXvario)

It should be possible but it is not reliable.
oXs read the sensor 50 times /sec. This increase by a few degrees the temperature of the sensor.

oXs does not send GPS data as long as there is no fix.
Probably that OTX2.3 detects the available telemetry data only at startup (with some time out)????

Re: Help with mpu6050 connections

for calibration you do not have to define a fill for test 1,2,3. Just look at the 3 numbers (X, Y, Z offsets) that you get on your PC (in arduino IDE) when you hold your sensor in 2 positions (see instructions in config_description.h). Then copy the 3 values you get in your config file ((instead of ...

Re: Help with mpu6050 connections

when you uncomment #define DISPLAY_ACC_OFFSET, the values are sent to the Serial bus and not to the receiver.
So, to view the data, you have to connect oXs with a USB/Serial module (e.g. FTDI) and look on the arduino IDE terminal (activated pressing CTRL+SHIFT+M)

Re: New beta version of openXsensor (=openXvario)

I am not sure it should be possible to support this protocol with oXs. This protocol uses 115200 baud rate which is quite fast for oXs because oXs does not use the hardware UART to communicate with the Rx. It uses a sofware serial UART because some protocol like FRSKY uses an inverted signal (not su...

Re: Problem with vario

There is no reason why it would not be possible to reuse the MS5611 on 2 different arduino.
You only have to take care of the I2C adress.

Create a logical switch based on the value of Vspeed (true when Vspeed is > 0)
Thenin special functions, play vario only when logical switch is true.

Re: A few issues

Arduino have several analog pins (A0...A7). For VFAS, you only need analog pin. Perhaps you can change the config file in order to get only VFAS (and no cells). So if your arduino has a defect analog pin you could still use it. If it is the ADC internal component that is defect, there is unfortunate...

Re: GY-86 not working - am I missing something?

Perhaps there is an issue with a pro mini at 3.3V because it is running at 8 Mhz instead of 16 MHZ and handling the imu +gps + MS5611 is perhaps too much.

Re: GY-86 not working - am I missing something?

There is no new version of oXs since many weeks now.
I expect GY86 option combined with a GPS should work but It could be good to test it to be sure.
So if you have the hardware to make test it would be fine to report here the result.
