Telemetry is now working almost perfectly.
With the previous version using the Arduino board, I had over and over again small losses of data. Looks like this is history.
I will check the logs of my Tx to see if this is confirmed.

Unfortunately I still see several times the GPS coordinates sent to my Tx completely out of range. I have no idea where this comes from and how it could be avoided.

Finally, my DIMU was arrived.

But i have one problem. is anyone know what socket UART2/U10 port type ? it looks like smaller than common socket used for GPS/Bluetooth.
The package comes with the DIMU and 3 headers but no cable with socket for UART2/U10 port. How can i buy this cable ?

Thanks,

John

I'm searching this connector and i found this one http://witespyquad.gostorego.com/4-pin- ... e-end.html
It is JST-SH connector, isn't it ? Their is 3 type like this, i just aware it.

Now do I need to buy USD 1.5 and the shipping cost is USD 9, this is the problem.

Yes, that is the connector and/or cable. It is often sold as i2c cable for basecam/alexmos gimbal controllers to imu.
I know that flyduino and probable viacopter carry them. Have no idea about their shipping costs to you.

Hopefully, its available together with DIMU so we don't need to buy from other source and waiting for another 2-4 weeks delivery.

Re: AutoQuad native Graupner HoTT telemetry (update: setting

Update in 1st post:

Now with HoTT text screen, read the wiki for explanation.
http://autoquad.org/wiki/wiki/developme ... telemetry/

With that a 8*21char text field is send which can basically contain just about everything.
What I done for now:
Overview screen with full mission info
ESC32 telemetry (if found)
First attempt for autoquad settings, yes thats right, edit the autoquad params on the radio.
In this version a selected set of params can be edit, I'm open for suggestions..
It will detect quatos or pid attitude controller and offer different params to edit.

Hope you'll like it.. the next version will contain a waypoint editor. So with that you can record and edit waypoints on the transmitter. So fly, record a couple of wp's and change the type to takeoff, landing, orbit, altitude etc etc.

Firmware files and source in:
http://autoquad.org/software-downloads/?category=3
ps.. still experimental, I already made dozens of flights with it, checks for changing data while armed are prevented but as always be carefull
