FrSky X8R and FVAS-01 direct connection

Hi Guys
I have a Taranis/X8R setup with Naza M Lite on my quad.

Just received an FVAS-01 Vario as an early Xmas present. How do I go about connecting it directly to the X8R without buying a hub? It has the four wires (yellow/red/black and brown)?
Thanks in advance
Tobias

You can't, those four wires of FVAS-01 are an I2C connection, without direct equivalent to X8R.

hi Renatoa
Thanks very much, that was my initial assumption. So, i am off to find a Frsky hub.

Cheers

And not only HUB - you will need FVAS-02 to connect it to X8R which IMO makes no sense...

Indeed, buy directly a second generation sensor, featuring embedded vario function, much precise, the first generation can be used as altimeter, vario at 1m/sec is useless.
