OpenXsensor and Frsky SxR Receivers

Post by Billy60 » Tue Sep 15, 2020 9:17 am

Hi all,
I am trying to set up some OpenXsensors on a S8R from Frsky. This Rx has in built stabilization possibilty with stab gain adjustment.
It seems there is some kind of incompatibility:
* it seems to corrupt the configuration foftware: this latter works no more
* it seems to also modify some features in teh Rx system: for instance, the Gain adjustment does not work and the Colour leds are disabled and only show a proper binding, no action mode.

What is your experience in this respect ?

Thanks

I have no experience with S8R but perhaps there is an incompatibility in the device ID being used.
oXs uses several devices ID's depending on the sensors being defined.
It is possible to change the devices ID's being used by oXs if this is would be the reason.

The S8R uses device ID 0x17 for configuration, make sure this ID is not being used by the OxS sensor.

I expect that there is another reason for the issue because oXs uses by default the following device Id's

#define DATA_ID_VARIO 0x00 // = sensor 0 used for Alt and Vspeed
#define DATA_ID_FLVSS 0xA1 // 1 used for Cell values
#define DATA_ID_FAS 0x22 // 2 used for vfas , current and fuel
#define DATA_ID_GPS 0x83 // 3 used for GPS data
#define DATA_ID_RPM 0xE4 // 4 used for rpm, T1, T2, airspeed
#define DATA_ID_ACC 0x67 // 7 used for Acc X, Y, Z
#define DATA_ID_TX 0x0D // used to read data sent by Tx in order to adjust some oXs parameters (flow sensor or ppm)
