Re: X20 Tandem..

Thanks for sharing the video!
If (/when) this supports OpenTX, I am definitely interested. I like the "screen at the top" layout very much.
It certainly looks good...!

Change pre-2019 X9D+ to latest spec, or replace

I have a 2016 X9D+ which I upgraded previously, changing over to Hall effect gimbals, and moving the momentary switch from right to left. If I wanted to bring it up to date, is this a case of swapping out the motherboard, or are there too many changes to make it worthwhile? If I change to a new X9D+...

File locations for bitmaps for telemetry screens - OpenTx - 2.2.1

Good morning! I have a problem getting bitmaps to display on a telemetry screen. When I use the simulator, the error message is this: convertToSimuPath(): alt-1.bmp -> alt-1.bmp findTrueFileName(alt-1.bmp) not found f_open(alt-1.bmp) = INVALID_NAME (FIL 0x7f096fffd430) What are the restrictions for ...

Re: Compiling Companion from Source

Thanks! I haven't played with Docker - perhaps I should have a look. 4_7 is in the gentoo tree, but hard masked, so local installation is probably more prudent.

I can understand there is no rush to move to newer versions!

Re: Compiling Companion from Source

One other question - which version of arm-none-eabi-g++ is recommended for 2.2? The latest download from Arm developer is gcc-arm-none-eabi-6-2017-q2-update-linux.tar.bz2, but I can build a different version if necessary from scratch.

Compiling Companion from Source

Good morning! I have been using OpenTX for a couple of years now, and on my Gentoo system I have been compiling from source (cloning the git repository). Last time I was home, I updated everything to 2.2 without any issues. This weekend past, I decided to do the same on my laptop and "away"...

Re: Open source speed sensor?

Thanks Tempo. Helmut Reichmann is clearly a legend! I wish I had come across this when I was actively involved in gliding (full size). I have tracked a copy down on eBay, and look forward to reading it.

Re: meassurement of pressure for velocity, altitude and TEK

No, TEK-probe is easy to built. You only need aluminium tube with outer diameter 3mm, bend it to 72 degree, close it, bore a little hole (about 0,5mm diameter) and you have got "Nicksdüse". You can adjust compensation by distance of hole and pipe end. The difficulty is to find position ou...

Re: OpenXSensor SPORT Interface

Could it be that your are flying at a field that is more or less 440 meter above see? I put a new version of the file oxs_MS5611.cpp on google in order to fix the issue about the 500m above sea. I hope it solve your issue. Please let me know. I'll give it a go and let you know. The hill is probably...

I notice as welll in the tracker #1480, there are some test scripts to get the list of constants. Are these run in the simulator, and if so, where does the output go? Currently only available on Linux platforms, if you run Companion or stand-alone simulator from a command line window (terminal) you...

Re: New Member - Introduction

Oh dear! I fly using thumbs, as I learnt to do with my Acoms set back in 1980. I have tried pinch method, but revert to thumbs normally. I fly mode 1 - another throwback to having a two channel set initially. What a pity. :( Yes some people got into the bad habit of using thumbs on the top of the T...

Just been out for a flight with the vario fitted. Everything seems to work fine, but I am getting an interesting issue at about 58m above launch - the vario suddenly changes to (about) -380m. Once I come down below the 58m point, it resets back to the correct altitude. Seems to be an overflow of so...
