"It seems like it was just updating weirdly. I have the ARSPD_BUS parameter up now and have airspeed enabled and set to I2C airspeed sensor. It's wired into the I2C 2 port on the PH2.1. The sensor lights up and displays on its little…"

"That's a great suggestion.  At $20 I'm going to order one.  Looks like it takes a while to get here - maybe I'll be ready to work out plugging it in by then."

Discuss choice and application of GPS's to use with the new PH2.1

Ken McNamara sent a message inquiring about what GPS to use with your new Pixhawk 2.1: I believe this is a great subject for a new discussion.
