GPS + Vario problem

Post by Weds » Wed Jun 13, 2018 7:35 am

Hi
I've recently built a Openx gps sensor following this thread here
http://openrcforums.com/forum/viewtopic ... 86&t=10472

No one was more surprised than me when it actually worked. All picked up Ok in adding new sensors on my Taranis.

I have now tried to add a vario using a GY-63 board, I connected it up to the same Arduino board as the GPS but i can't get it to function, reading through the various threads on here I seem to think I need to enable the code somehow.

What do I need to do to get it to work ?

Cheers

If you are using the elder oXs version from your link (still OK, but there were some changes meanwhile), simply change one line in oXs_config.h, delete the comment "//":

// ***** 4.1 - Connecting 1 or 2 MS5611 barometric sensor *****
//#define VARIO // set as comment if there is no vario

into

// ***** 4.1 - Connecting 1 or 2 MS5611 barometric sensor *****
#define VARIO // set as comment if there is no vario

and it should work immediately, like GPS did, correct wiring provided ;)

If you are using the recent oXs master, it is this line in oXs_config_basic.h :

// ***** 4.1 - Connecting 1 or 2 barometric sensor(s) *****
#define FIRST_BARO_SENSOR_USE MS5611

Brilliant, worked first time. I didn't realise that the oxs_config.h file worked in conjunction with the openXsensor software on the Arduino..

Thanks for you help.. It now all starts to fall into place...

Now i have a working GPS with Vario :-)
