                  • You'll need to "discover" the telemetry sensors on the radio before anything else. Then connect the radio to Companion and read the model from the radio.

                    This new sensor discovery thing, while great, requires that extra step of discovery physically the sensors and then copy to Companion to set up everything correctly.

                  • Hi Luis.

                      The no message problem is  Solved.

                      directory's ok,

                    But telemetry sensor settings were incorrect (T2 / Temp2 I think)

                    Is it possible to cut/paste telemetry settings  into  companion?

                    Tim

              • Paul, could you please explain what you mean by having the taranis to "discover " the gps config ?
                I don't see the way to do something like that from companion .
                Thks
                • Hi All

                            I have been using Rolf Blomgren  teensy adapter successfully  for a year now

                  great work Thanks..

                    Then i decided to try updating to open tx 2.1.7  /"Cloony"/ latest lua.

                  Hmm big learning curve for an old pensioner!

                  nearly there now just a couple of issues

                  message sounds not playing (sanantha   in    /SOUNDS/en/TELEM)

                  (modes and system  play ok)

                  and VFAS not displayed correctly on screen .  (15v =1.5v??)

                  (lcd.drawNumber(30,13,getValue("VFAS"),DBLSIZE+PREC1)

                  I changed this line  to this

                  lcd.drawNumber(30,13,getValue("VFAS")*10,DBLSIZE+PREC1)

                  Fixed!  , May be we need a different version for every update of open Tx ?.

                  Thanks to all for making your efforts freely available to everybody

                  Tim

                  • Hi

                    I assume that you've updated OpenTX to 2.1.7 from 2.0.x

                    If that is the case you also need to update the entire "native" collection of sounds of OpenTX.

                • Its not done in companion. Its done on the model Telemetry sensor screen on the Taranis. This is the screen on the Taranis where all your telemetry sensors are configured. If you have a sensor already called GPS, and it is displaying a string of digits instead of a regular Lat/Long notation, then, first delete this GPS sensor, then with your radio and craft powered, and your radio getting telemetry information through, choose the option on that same page called 'Discover new sensors' , and your GPS sensor (hosted by the Teensy) should re-appear on the screen. Once its there, then you can select 'Stop Discovery', and you should notice that the GPS sensor on that page is now showing more meaningful data - even if you don't have a satellite fix, if you select the GPS sensor and hit 'Ent' then it should show the format:

                  0º00'- 0º00'-

                  at the top of the edit screen.

                  I will seek to have the Wiki on github (https://github.com/Clooney82/MavLink_FrSkySPort/wiki/1.2.-FrSky-Tar...) updated to give better advice for setting this up.

                  Cheers, Paul

            • Kev, I really appreciate you taking the effort to check this. My GPS reading is what's wrong then. It appears ti be configured the same way as yours but maybe there is an issue dealing with the GPS values sent from the Mavlink side on APM 3.3. I may downgrade one of my lesser used quads to test this. Thanks again, Paul

              • Any idea how I can include the information about the " simple mode" status on the taranis ? I know I can include this specifically as a flight mode, but in order to have more fm configured , I have assigned simple to channel 8 , then I have all modes in std, and simple mode ,
                Thanks
            • Kev,

              The difference could be the APM version. I am also using EU version 2.1.6 OpenTx and have the GPS sensor setup on the Taranis Plus the same way as you. I used to use the OpenTx 2.0.x version of this telemetry code (on OpenTx 2.0.17) and that worked perfectly (I did tend to rely on the radar display quite a bit when I got disoriented with the crafts orientation), but the 2.1 version on 3.3. seems to have this one issue for me.

              (for info - there are actually other issues with the LUA code generally (all versions) which I have been discussing and doing some testing with Clooney82's -next version of the code, these centre around Taranis memory structure limitations which Clooney is looking into separately, but they only effect the storage of values entered into the offset screen The ranges of values allowed are restricted at present due to these taranis limitations - I hope to see some interesting modifications before long to remove these limitations).

              If you do decide to make the move to APM 3.3, bear in mind that there are new sound files from OpenTx required to be put on your SD card, plus 3.3. specific sound files supplied with the Clooney82 telemetry code too. The latest version has these telemetry specific sound files in a separate /SOUNDS/EN/TELEM sub directory to keep them distinct.

              Cheers again Kev, Paul 

  • Hi,

    I am new to this project and would like to know if there is any tutorial showing how to compile and upload the files to the Teensy. Thanks in advance.

    Zeek
