9XRPRO Crossfire Telemetry (Tracer) and LUA

Post by ajarni » Sat Jun 19, 2021 9:43 am

Did anyone get telemetry working on CRSF? Do LUA scripts for configuring work? I have a Tracer Micro TX in 9XRPRO.

Telemetry should be working on CRSF.
Due to the limited memory available, LUA isn't included on the 9XR-PRO. It could be added, but very few scripts would load and run due to the lack of memory.
The Basic script language is available (uses much lees memory to run). A configuration script would need to be written/converted from LUA.

Thanks so much for replying Mike. Please forgive my noobness, but I don't understand how to enable Telemetry on CRSF. UsrProto in Telemetry does not seem to include CRSF, on all others I've tried I get no sensor data. In Protocol External I have Proto=XFire, RxNum=0, Detect Telem.=Auto, 1st Chan=1. Erskytx does warn me if the model is still turned on, but no other telemetry data that I can see...

If you have the warning, then you should be getting RSSI. What other telemetry do you expect to see? I don't have any CRSF hardware so cannot test anything.

If you go to the Telemetry|Logging menu, then there is a tick at the very right of the screen beside any telemetry values that are being received.

I could look at the telemetry you are receiving if you create a raw logfile:
Set up a logging switch, then go to the DEBUG menu and press MENU LONG to toggle Raw logging ON, press MENU LONG again to select HEX.
Now, with everything running, turn the logging on for (say) 10 seconds, then turn it off.
Find the log file (should be in a LOGS directory on the SD card), zip it up and either post it or send it to me.

Hi Mike,

I am so sorry for the late reply. I was able to fry my FC and took a while to get it all back running.

I can confirm that telemetry is working 9XRPRO with TBS Tracer on Betaflight with enabled Telemetry in Betaflight and CRSF as selected protocol in ErSkyTX. The following telemetry data is received in my case:
- Signal information (Tx, Rx)
- Aircraft battery voltage (VFas)
- GPS and Barometer (Latitude, Longitude, Altitude)

I think there should be other data as well, but that is what I checked and understood.

Everything works well.
Thank you for your effort and good work!

P.S. If you still need the logs for your research I can still send them to you.
