Great item. Very easy to set up and works well with both iA10 and i6B receivers. However, take care. Models get really small at +1000' agl and you have to take your eyes off it to read the altitude on the TX. It would be great to have data logging on my I10 Tx to see what height I got to.

First of all: you need either a newer IA10 or a patched Ia6b- there is a firmware upate (v1.6.) available, simply google for it. You can have the data in your FS-i6 receiver also, but you have to update the firmware there also- there is a very successful project for it which lets you even have 14(!) instead of 6 channels.
It works satisfying, is inexpensive and lightweight. So: very nice.

arrived today and installed onto an IA6B receiver. Could have done with some form of instructions, but got there in the end. Need to Activate the sensor on the TX.

I have a question---will this work with a i6B receiver or do I need to purchase the iA10 channel receiver. If it will work with the 6B--how do you plug it in to the rx? I have plugged it into "sen" on my i6B --it is working because the red light indicator is on, but my iA6 TX is not picking up the signal from the sensor.

I got two TGT-CAT01 sensors today. Setup is simple, just plug them in, it came with cables for both versions of the receiver. It can show altitude, pressure in hPa and temperature. By default it is set up with standard pressure 1013hPa and it will show altitude (above sea level), but if you enter menu RC setup/Set ASL Pressure and scroll altutude to zero, it will show you Height (above ground).

Whilst no vario function, it is a brilliant altitude readout, simple and cheap and perfect
for my needs. Took a while to find the setting to zero the height readout. Wish other manufacturers followed the lead of Frsky (Turnigy) with these range of sensors.
