"Simon,
My Mauch is plugged into power port 1 and it gave some way off reading until I entered the calibration settings that came on the little sheet of paper that came with the sensor"

"Simon,
Since the Pixhawk 2.1 mini power brick only handles 30amps I hooked a Mauch 100a power module on the power input 1 for the main battery that runs the motor and I'm using the mini power brick on power input 2 for the flight battery that runs a…"

"I now have it working. I was under the incorrect assumption that the aispeed sensor static port was also providing barometric altitude data to the Pixhawk. But, the instructions say to set the ARSPD_BUS = 1, I can only make it work on ARSPB_BUS = 0…"

"I was just looking at the Libraries and the airspeed library has the driver for the MS5525 airspeed sensor but the Baro library doesn't have a driver for the MS5525. It's been a very long time since I was working with the development but I think tha…"

"Simon, try changing the I2C bus from 1 to 0 in the parameter config file, I just did that and the airspeed seems to be working
Edit: But Altitude isn't"

"Yes, I was just trying to setup one of the new MS5525 Airspeed sensors on I2C - 2 and it won't work. I'll have to make up a special cable to try it on I2C -1. Someone suggested making a cable to use the I2C bus from GPS-2 connector"

DougB commented on Chris Anderson's blog post New: QGroundControl 3.1 adds surveys and improved geofencing
"How do I get that panel to show up. On mine I only see the "H Planed Home position" and "S Survey" ? I've clicked all over the place and can't seem to find that panel.
Thanks"

"Hi Paul,
I setup the new version with OpenTX 2,2rc8 and every thing appears to be working. But, I can't get the confg page to come up. I'm using a long press of the "Menu" button with the Telemetry page showing
Thanks"

DougB replied to Rolf Blomgren's discussion APM MavLink to FrSky X8R S.Port converter
"Hi Paul;
I found the problem. If I set the Taranis telemetry screen units to "m/s" as the Wiki shows its changing the ASpd value by some factor that is lowering the value of ASpd. If I set units to meters "m" the value of ASpd is passed to the Lua s…"

"I'm having a problem with Airspeed (ASpd)
I have Mission planner set to Metric, if I blow a constant speed of air into the pitot tube missionplanner shows around 17m/s. Taranis is showing only around 7m/s in the lua script and if I look at the raw d…"

DougB replied to Rolf Blomgren's discussion APM MavLink to FrSky X8R S.Port converter
"I've look around and can't find the answer to whether there is a way to change the Units displayed on the Taranis for altitude and speed from metric to imperial?

Thanks"
