Re: Using in 9XR-PRO

All the DSM telemetry values are 'mapped' to what would be FrSky telemetry values, so you are able to use the custom telemetry screens to display any values you like. OK, I will experiment with these values to get a display that works for me. When you have 'A' as the RSSI value, is this the value a...

Re: Using in 9XR-PRO

How can I select the 'A' value for use in a low signal alarm, the default DSM telemetry screen shows this value in the bottom left, and it is not much use if you cannot set an alarm when the value drops too low. Would it be possible to edit that telemetry screen so that it can be customised to suit ...

Re: Using in 9XR-PRO

Mike, Daedalus66 I have just received one of the Lemon 7ch telemetry receivers and I am attempting to set up a custom telemetry screen in addition to the default DSMx screen. I have noticed that rssi appears on the top right of the screen along with Timer1 (at least I think it is Timer1), the value ...

Re: Reset Alt to zero on openXsensor

I could make such a cable but where would I connect it to on my PC as it does not have a serial port. I assume it would just be a single wire from the Tx connection on the module, but where would it go to?

Sorry to be a pest I know you have more important things to do.

Re: Reset Alt to zero on openXsensor

OK I have updated the sensor to V5 and it does not change anything. I don't know if it means anything but the initial Alt value is always -2704. The only thing I don't understand is why it works in a Futaba system with a FrSky module with a D8R-ll+ Rx and FLD-02 display. Back to the drawing board. D...

Re: Reset Alt to zero on openXsensor

TmOK value is 2. The version of openXsensor on Github is V5.0 I am only using v2.5 I don't know if that makes a difference but I have just downloaded this version and I will upload this to my sensor and carry out more tests tomorrow.

I will advise you of the results after that.

Re: Reset Alt to zero on openXsensor

This is very odd. Since I tested the operation using the firmware you are using, I can't see anything wrong. Also, using the "Reset to Zero" popup option does nothing with the Vspd value or processing. All it does is take a copy of the current altitude and use that as an offset for the displayed va...

Re: Reset Alt to zero on openXsensor

The only time the values fluctuate for both vspd and alt are before I use the popup to reset it to zero, as soon as I reset they stay solid on zero for both values.

Mike, just loaded the new Linux version on my laptop and have two issues. The first relates to screen size, it is too large for my laptop screen I will not be able to try on my desktop until late next week as I am away until then. The second issue is that if I try the wizard the program crashes. Dave
