@ MFD

Next questions or problems:


1:
What does the Solo Thr delay "BNG + TIME" mean?

2:
What does the "Fence Radius" do?

3:
OSD OFF function does not work.
Channel 7 is present, I can change an in-flight value with the channel7. But the OSD never goes out.

I have never had the need to adjust this on my plane but I would say you need to adjust your max pitch up/down limits.

I have not tested anything.

MFD does not answer a request ...
Neither PN nor email.

Actually, I wanted to order the new Crossbow Mini. But why should I continue to support MFD when customer service is almost non-existent after purchase?

Because many people will still buy, and this makes chineeze companies don't give a shiit about support.

I recently sent emails to ZTW and Flycolor with some important questions about their ESCs. And guess what?

If someone wants proper support buy Pitlab. White people have somehow better brain not to annoy customers with disregard.

I'm hoping to install the sonar sensor on my Crosshair this weekend if I arrive home on time.
If things work out for me I will share my settings.
I too have the Crossbow ATT and believe when i tell you you will not need any customer care assistance getting that thing going.... it works straight out of the box.

I normally do not need support, if everything works as described in the instructions.

But if my sonar module works on an Arduino and is not recognized by the autopilot, then I would like an info, what is still to be tested.
There are in the settings synonymous only a menu item, where you only set what is installed for a sensor.

Where did you purchase the Sonar sensor?
Your wiring looks ok from the pictures you posted and the instructions in the MFD Autolanding guide look straight forward.
I know you say the sensor works with Arduino code but it's sound like a faulty sonar sensor to me.
Everything else is fairly straight forward!

I bought my sensor from Amazon. It looks exactly like the one in the manual. Yesterday tested again on an Arduino board - everything works ... Only on AP not.

This is the Sonar sensor I received from MFD.
Its slightly different to the one you have.
It has 5 pins, yours has 4 pins.
I know it's only an extra earth pin but could be something to do with it or just a faulty sensor.

Just connected up my Sonar sensor to the Crosshair AP and all is good, thank God!
Picture 1 is facing the floor.
Picture 2 is facing the roof.
You must remember that if the sensor is not within 2 meters of a wall/object it will not display the additional altitude reading on the OSD that you are not seeing.
