Description

The FrSky Variometer sensor calculates the altitude from atmospheric pressure. Atmospheric pressure will get lower as you go up in altitude, using this the sensor will estimate the altitude. An exact display cannot be performed if atmospheric pressure changes in weather. The Variometer sensor also can output the Altitude Rate via DA port. Altitude Rate formula: (Output DA Voltage -1.65)/1.65=Altitude Rate speed/10.24.

Features:
• Capable of connecting directly to the telemetry receivers without the sensor hub.
• Backward compatibility with existing sensor hub and sensors, also compatible with new generation Smart Port enabled sensors.
• Smart Port enabled, realizing two-way full duplex transmission.

Operational Voltage: 4~10VDC
Operational Current: 30mA
Dimensions: 31.1x18.3x6mm (LxWxH)
Weight: 3.1g

marche très bien sur ma 9xrpro ,la précision est bonne ,
bref vivement le soleil et les thermiques !!

Perfeito para se determinar a altitude de voo com um erro de pelo menos 1,5 metros.

J'ai achet ce vario pour le coupler avec un rx D8R-IIPlus. Le tout fonctionne trs bien mme si la doc en noir et blanc ne permet pas de bien voir qu'il faut brancher le fil jaune sur Rx et le fil brun sur le port A2. La prcision est conforme au produit.

I bought this for vario coupled with a D8R-IIplus rx. Everything works fine even if the doc in black and white does not see much need to connect the yellow wire on Rx and brown wire on the A2 port. The accuracy is consistent with this product.

3 feet precision is plenty of accuracy. The only reason I would say you might want a high precision altimeter is if you are flying large scale aircraft FPV and want to know how high you are above the runway for your flare. Other than that, this normal precision is perfect and miles more accurate than a gps. GPS is good for knowing where you are. If you want accurate airspeed and altitude, get one of these and the pitot tube system frsky also offers.

lo voy a usar para un velero termico que estoy montando y quiero ver cuando coge las termicas, sacare la lectura por telemetria con la 9xr o con arduino para tener el solido tipico de un vario cuando el avion asciende, desciende o se mantiene

Great for gliders. It indicates when they find termals going up and when go down by the sound. The altitude they fly or are released by the tow plane is also good to know. I always use to have them in my pure sailplanes...

es dificil de controlar, le afectan todos los elementos metereologicos, frio, viento, humedad y la velocidad del avion tambien imfluyes mucho en sus datos, puede que en un multicopter vaya mejor, pero en un avion es muy variable e inestable.

Great sensor. I use connected to D8RII plus. Infos are shown on FLD-02. Easy to plug into Rx. I also use with FAS-40 with another plane. I recommend.

Great unit.

To connect to the x8r you only need the wire with a servo plug which plugs into an empty channel and the small plugs on the side of the rx.

To zero the altitude with 9xr or 9xr pro just push [menu] long.
