New Spektrum STi App is Available


The new STi app is available in the App Store. Send your comments (good or bad) to AirWare@horizonhobby.com and put STI in the title so they route it correctly.

Enjoy!

Wowwowwow....... love it
Just got home and saw the available for upgrade on my iPhone. Immediately did the upgrade.... Works great.. love all aspects... like the way they did the audio..
It was a little difficult to bind.. don't know why... I have the "Y" connector on the bind port. Once I got it to bind, I didn't see the speaker with the slash... took some poking.

We need a readme file, or a Wikipage...

I only had 2 planes with Telemetry, so I have one working for the moment, will leave well enough alone for the present.

This is awsum... Does the Variometer work off the Altitude sensor or do I need to buy another sensor?

Does this now allow data logging? Graphing seems to imply that but I'd like to confirm.

First impression - sucked that all my models are gone but the ability to select what sensor to display and move them around is pretty cool. Well not sure if the update erased all my models or if I for some reason may have re-installed this app before and never put the models in.

Have yet to bind a model and already have fun setting up new models.

Looks like it.AutoLoggin / Manual selection
then you can select RPM/Airspeed/Alt/Flight Volts
Start log at value
Stop log at value
Time out for no value

Very cool indeed.And it talks.
Used it with the RadianPro speaking altitude every ten seconds.Not quite specifically a variometer yet but its a huge step up.Along with low flightpack voltage alert it makes it a whole different kind of fun all over again. This thing is pretty cool even in conjunction with telemetry in the radio.
If you dont have a telemetry enabled radio this is going to be a way cool way to have it.

Aerocal,
There's a Variometer on the second page display. There's a big circle with G force indicators and over on the left it shows a Variometer. I just don't know if we need another sensor or if it works off the current Altimeter.

Any words of wisdom Sir Andy?

The vario module isn't shipping yet. This way you can preview the idea a little. I would go with aerocal's method - let the speaking altimeter keep you updated.

Oh that's good to know since the HH tech rep said that SPMA9585 costing $32 bucks
would read in that window (to be fair he said he was guessing) but there is an 8 G model, and a 40 g model... I was off the the LHS to see if plugging them in would make it work.

They work the same, either one will report in the STi. You can only put one of them in a plane. I gave you the link in your RCU thread.

I can't see how to set an alarm on altitude. Is it possible ?

A fellow flying club member flew with STI app on a IPAD. It dropped reception most of the time. It only worked when he passed down the runway.

The telemetry connection definitely isnt as robust or forgiving to a marginal antenna position.I found on the TM1000 the farther back you can get the antenna and have it stick out the back/bottom is the best for reception.I seem to reliably get 1/2 mile with the TM1000 and well over 1/3 mile with the TM1100 if I get an optimal setup.If you leave them jammed up next to and/or around other electronics it may be drastically reduced to a couple hundred feet

750ft away on my recent climb before airframe failure I still had strong telemetry on my iPhone/STI setup.

I do have like mentioned above the Tm antenna in the back of the fuse away from most everything.
