HI,

as promised, the team has released a Config Protocol to the community. I have briefly read through it and think it is more or less in order...

As KKUSA is the one who has spend some time on it, so he may be in the best position to sort them out if there is any leftovers or confusion that needed to be cleared...

so here it is.... and don't hesitate to ask...

They don't have the define for the GPS data and the gyro and ACC data. that will be useful for OSD display.

There is, it's just not in the protocol manual....yet.



Gyro Data Send S~0003

Acc Data Send S~0004


Also, Send S~0001 , String with header SSDA contains:

Compass Heading in degrees
Sonar in mm
Baro in decimeters
TEMP x10
MAG RAW XYZ +5000
Acc AD2 RAW +5000

SSDA01610219336502696638978415706026

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I DID find the GPS data.

Send S~0007

1 <----Not sure Maybe Lock OK
7 <--- Number of Sats I think
-85921676 <----Lon
39892229 <----Lat
0 <--- Not sure about the rest.....Probably reserved
0
0
0
0

There is some other data, but it appears to be calculated sensor data that really doesnt seem to be useful right now on the PC side.


So, since I now have the GPS data coming through, there may be a slight delay releasing the app. I now have to implement the GPS portion!!!

I will need a beta tester or two.

LOL... I know exactly how you feel. I'd personally be happy for now to just have a GUI that doesn't scramble my settings occasionally and could wait on the GPS readout... but I know how you feel! My non-programmer partner/project manager always thinks the software is ready way before I do.

Looking and sounding great BTW. I'm up for testing if it will help.

Thanks,

OK, I was talked in to releasing an Alpha. So, here it is!!!!

.NET Framework 4.0 required!!! I may include a method to automatically grab it from Microsoft in the final release installation for the few that may not have it.


There are a few things that are disabled in this alpha release as I haven't debugged them satisfactorily.


The firmware updater is disabled in the Alpha.
The uploading of Tx Switch Functions is disabled in the Alpha.
Frame editor is disabled in the Alpha. <----dont choose CUSTOM frame type.


Also, there are some layout and graphical things that will be changed before the Beta is released, as well as some added stuff.


Everything else SHOULD function properly. However, I do not warrant it in any way. It is an ALPHA release.

The file extension for saved configs is now ".rab" It is simply a text file with the .rab extension, and a different format than LF's.

A few things to note, plug FC in to PC before starting app so it will find the port. the port does not exist unless the FC is connected.

When viewing real time sensor data, STOP the plotting before switching which sensors you want to plot. This is a limitation on how the Rabbit handles data. The stream must be stopped before a new one is started. I am making it so it will automatically stop, and start for the selected sensor data when it is changed. it will be in the BETA.

The Alpha requires no installation. Make sure all the files included are in the same folder when you run it!!!



If there is anything you guys feel that should be changed, like layout etc. let me know. There are some things I dont like, but its hard to make it just so!!!


@LF , You should reconsider your entire config protocol, or at least add a function to stream ALL data, in a single stream!!!


Oh, did I mention this is an ALPHA release? It WILL have a bug or two!!! It is intended for feedback purposes only!!
