Re: OpenTX v2.3 and OXS GPS issue

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: Vario - howto only listen to up vspd

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.

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

Thanks for the information.
When the option GT86 is activated in oXs it does not use the magnetometer.
In order to use the 5883, you have to explicitely activate it (as a separate option).
So, this could not be the reason here.

Re: A few issues

VFAS is supposed to be the total voltage.
But therefore you have to say to oXs to transmit VOLT_3 as VFAS
So you should have
#define VFAS_SOURCE VOLT_3

There is no reason that BMP280 has an impact on VFAS.
Perhaps you are using another config for this device.

Your config seems OK. There is perhaps a bug in oXs.

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

What is the I2C address when you run the GY86? The mS5611 has 2 I2S address. Perhaps the GY86 is designed to use the other one (0x76). You can change this in the file openXsensor.ino in the folowing code #define I2C_MS5611_Add 0x77 // 0x77 The I2C Address of the MS5611 breakout board // (normally 0x...

Normally oXs can calculate Roll and Pitch. Still I think your issue is due to the use of ACCX and Y to handle the data. If I remember well, on Tx side, the 2 last digit being sent as ACC are lost (due to the format foreseen by Frsky for ACC). To solve this, it is possible to setup a scale = 255 in t...

It can cohabitate.
So you can build it with only the vario. You will get only Alt and Vspeed from oXs (and A2 from RX6R)
