Yes, exactly a BMP085
The plan is to play with the pressure sensor and the OpenLRS Multicopter receiver on a very little quadro-copter.

All I did was to decompress and loaded onto existing hardware. I did not do any configuration but will now. LOL

The I2C bus and a few other pins will need to be extended but this is very workable.

That arrow looks familiar

Nice to see that the software can be used for the DIY hardware aswell.

Here is another one of my FPV ground video testing the OSD. Still requires lots of work but we are getting better. The current sensor is installed but I have the wrong calculation value plugged in. I also need to work on the video-in VPP, I am not sure how to go about lowering it. Any ideas or suggestions?

Thank you.

I got a few off topic questions,...Is it okay to mix 5 and 3.3V arduinos when doing i2c communications between them? If you feed 5V to gps, can you connect just the tx and rx (which you share between two arduinos) to the 3.3V one?

On a side note, what about using openlrs telemetry protocol for antenna tracking?

Here is a very short video of after the adjustments. Now I need to focus on the Antenna.

I'm not sure, but I don't think it's a problem with I2C with 3.3 and 5 volt. The threshold value is probably somewhere between 1-3 volt. Should be easy to find some info with a quick google-search

Now that looks a lot better. Can I ask what you have changed from default?

Changed within the code or with the hardware? In the code, I just changed the values for the top line. I will post the modification as soon as I clean up the code, lots of hacks. As for the hardware, the most dramatic change was making the adjustment for the VPP as you suggested.

If rssi signal voltage is between 0-5V, I don't need any voltage dividers infront of the analog input right? I just feed the +rssi into that input.

0-5 volts is perfect. Which RX has this feature?

Voltage-divider should only be necessary to read the battery-voltage. Never heart of any receiver with more than a a couple of volts max RSSI out.

No it has 0,91-1,11V ... I just meant its inside that voltage range which arduino accepts (0-5V) ...another off topic thing, I've been thinking about that openlrs diy, what about if I still use the 5V nano's, but put them on headers, so when I would upload a new sketch on to the board I would remove it, hence the 5V wouldn't burn the rfm22b...But when on board it would run on 3,3V.

Dennis, may I ask you to post a picture of your FPV Transmitter Antenna and what Frequency used to transmit on?

Thank you.
