              • OK, now I get it.

                With new EKF changes I think most important part is to figure out what warning messages to include into this mechanism. 'compass variance' and 'velocity variance' are probably most important ones, 'bad ahrs' is not quite clear if it is important or not, then it is a bunch of EKF error scenarios that also probably need to be evaluated, as I do not think current script will say anything specific in a case of an EKF failsafe emergency landing...

  • Hi,

    do anybodyknow how I can get additional telemetry values an the taranis? I need the "sonarrange" value. 

    Thanks for any hint!

  • I found this very useful to decode MAVLINK messages from Pixhawk. Thanks. My latest problem is while this was very effective in reading data how can I set parameters on the Pixhawk using MAVLINK. In other words the reverse process. I have spent considerable time on the web but MAVLINK documentation is a real mess with no examples on how to use the GCS Mavlink library. For example - there is a SET_PARAM command but how to use it ?

    • i have added this script to show the error messages, on latest clooneys82 Lua scripts

      but now it says : syntax error ( but it was working fine ), any ideas what could be wrong?, thank you

  • Does anyone know how to configure open TX to work with version 2.1?
    After Configuring all the telemetry parameters , how should the other pages be configured . And the rest of the SD folders ..
    Thank you
    • Have a look at the readme here: https://github.com/Clooney82/MavLink_FrSkySPort/tree/s-c-l-v-rc-ope...

      Have a look at the 3 pictures in MavLink_FrSkySPort Directory to see how you must setup telemetry in openTX 2.1.

      Clooney82/MavLink_FrSkySPort
      This MavLink_FrSkySPort repository is discontinued! The development is moved to athertop/MavLink_FrSkySPort. Please do not use this repo, and follow…
      • yes i did ,

        the three pictures explains just  the new telemetry screen configuration  , but how to configure the rest  ?, there are many missing  pieces of information , and my question is if i should copy everything of the configuration that is valid for 2.0.17  for the rest ( the other lua scripts, the mix,es, input, flight modes, logical sw ,  special functions ,   there is no orientation on how to configure that part ..

        • this branch is under development. also devs are on trail and error with 2.1. so this is why there is no clear set-up information at this state of development.

          if you need stable telemetry on apm please use opentx 2.0.17 and the main s-c-l-v-rc branch. this will work stable with no eu x8r firmware. on eu firmware receivers you need currently the new branch. but this is on many parts untested and buggy. because devs are working on different things over the whole code base.

          /g

          wolke

        • Is it possible to summarize what is (if there is any) the point to upgrade taranis into 2.1 firmware from previous 2.0.x? Is there any practical benefit from 2.1? Any new features?
  • I am trying to setup the single cell monitor... at the moment, I am trying to configure the software dividers.

    I made the resistor network as provided in the readme and commented in the debug output. At the teensy inputs, I measured correct voltages of under 3,3V for each cell between A0-A3 and GND of the Teensy.

    Unfortunately, I only get the following output via the serial monitor:

    7314.00, 7163.00, 7107.00, 7222.00, cells in use: 4, , sum 15361
    7314.00
    3853.83

    which is the same whether the Lipo is connected or not.

    I just connected the Teensy via USB and the balance plug to the resistor network which outputs go to the Teensy.

    What am I doing wrong?
