Re: OpenXSensor GPS project 101

Good news mstrens. When I connected the Neo8 back to the Ucenter, I found out that it had not changed the baud rate, therefore, I changed it back to 9600, saved, disconnected everything, connected back again to verify that it was still in 9600, and voila, it was. Connected to Arduino and now, it was...

Re: OpenXSensor GPS project 101

That sounds outstanding. I was able to change the baud rate, but still I have no comms. However, I'll do some more tests because I know that the s port will not discover the GPS until the are several satellites fixed, and the initial test was indoors. Will let you know later what happens when I got ...

Re: OpenXSensor GPS project 101

Thanks a lot for your response mstrens. I noticed the ucenter has a config tab, where to set the speed, but I think I will have to do some further research before I risk to mess up the GPS. It seems that the Noe8 I have it came by default to 38400. The other option would be to find a Neo8 whose defa...

Re: OpenXSensor GPS project 101

mstrens, I ckecked out the Neo8 with the U-center. The only thing I found and that can be the reason why I don't have comm with the Arduino, is that the GPS is running at 38,400bps. Neo7 in the U-center connects at 9600. Therefore, I have a couple of questions: Is the Arduino running at 9600? and If...

Re: OpenXSensor GPS project 101

An arduino nano has already a converter usb/serial. So there is no need for a FTDI. With openXsensor (oXs) there is no need to configure the neo7M (or the neo6 or neo8) because at every startup oXs assume that the gps uses the default configuration from Ublox and send some code to the gps to upload...

Re: Frsky RB 10 telemetry slots error

I suggest you go to Delete all sensors and discover sensors. I have been using 2.1.9 for quite a while but did not have that problem. It happens that if you discover, and then make any change with the sensors, they may assume a different ID, and if you don't delete the previous you will have duplica...

Well, I am not familiar with Pixhalk, but regardless, the important part is that you are defining flight modes in the Pixh through Taranis CH5. I am not sure about CH5 PWM (which should be CH5 in your RX), appears as CH7 on SBUS. I am using SBus too, but I have not such a mismatch between PWM and SB...

Re: TR battery

If you can fit that in your UAV is a good idea. Check range to determine if you will have you TX antenna in an horizontal plane or in a vertical plane to obtain max RSSI.

Just for curiosity, check in the telemetry log RSSI vs RX voltage. I guess you have the antennas at 90 degrees from each other. Anyway, I think the "bad guy" is the TX battery.
