Re: OpenXsensor Configurator

What a fuss.

Just run it in your preferred LM.

This is LM 19.3.

Do a

Code: Select all

sudo apt install python3-tk
in terminal to install the missing thinker package and then run the Configurator.

Re: Can't flash my Arduino 2560

Thierry, you can now flash a simple hex file wit the USBasp onto an Arduino. Whether it is an Uno, a Nano or a Mega. That was the goal of this thread here. Flashing and preparing openTX on a Arduino Mega is quite another thing. The description is here for doing so ... https://github.com/opentx/opent...

So : direct flashing with Arduino IDE (and ArduinoISP) killed the UNO's bootloader. But why do you say that I can't use the UNO any more with Arduino IDE ? I can still load a program in it.

The USBasp (USBAP?) can be tricky. If you have a second Arduino, use that one for flashing. How can I know the card is being flashed ? Flash the blink.ino with different ON/OFF timing and save the blink.hex file as blink1.hex and blink2.hex on your computer and try those. Here ( I am using DEBIAN) t...

Re: New beta version of openXsensor (=openXvario)

Michel, let me ask you.
The SX1276 module in oXs is in listening mode: it sent data only when it receives a request from the "locator receiver"
How is that 'request' triggered? By powering on the 'locator receiver'?

Sounds strange.

I would connect those ms5611 separately on a arduino and run a I2C scanner sketch. Just to see, that each ms5611 shows up clean on the I2C bus.

Justin, did not do anything special. Flashed the Arduino Uno with the code (your config files), connected the components, switch it on and did a telemetry search on Taranis. That is all.

So the GY-86 seems to be ok. That is not the initial problem.

Check the wiring and post oXs_config_basic and oXs_config_advance.
