5Hz Update GPS!

Recommended Posts

Test flight with unused NMEA sentences off and Inspire data fields on. A little delay, but, not bad. The altitude accuracy seems to suffer the most. Probably due to my "smooth" flying style. :P

The u-shaped road seen when flying right is actually an abandoned airport. Up until a few weeks ago, it was deserted and the runways were still asphalt. Now there's construction going on for a corporate center. Ah well, time to find a new location for my EDF jets.

BTW, I'm using a Diversity receiver and two of the Goof-Proof patch antennas. Great results with those antennas! Better than any of the commercial ones I've tried. Took all of an hour to put two of them together.

Hi ! cool video, I like the fast GPS updating,

but if it is really needed ? I have no idea ?

maybe its a cool gimik so that is fine,

the 5Hz gps rx units are still double the price over normal 1Hz units.

Sugestions: why not remove all the 0.03V and 0.0V and 0.00V and 0.0A

the sw in the OSD could be made to automaticly NOT display if close to 0,

that will clean up alot of your screen, to only display stuff you use.

what about the 7.4V is that your motor battery ?

funny it is always 7.4 if motor is on or off ? strange ?

also the RPM could be blanked when zero, no need to show zero, right ?

and the waypoint stuff when not in use ? hum..

and the cordinates shown are in a funny format, (not WGS84)

can that be turned on/off during flight ?

but they work fine to be put into google earth:

Cool! I see big brother is watching! :D I personally just use alt/speed/GPS coord when flying. I wanted to use GPS instead of on-board sensors. The 5Hz module provides real-time data. The 7.4 is from the motor battery, but, it's being read at the Inspire end through a voltage regulator. So, it should always read approximately 7.4 volts.

I went back and looked at the video where you had most of the Inspire fields turned off. Compared to the video with all of the fields turned on, the OSD update behavior seems the same. So, that is good news (thanks for checking it). The fast updates are very cool.

BTW, I'm using a Diversity receiver and two of the Goof-Proof patch antennas. Great results with those antennas! Better than any of the commercial ones I've tried.

The GP Patch is definitely a life saver and a consistent good performer. Thanks for the feedback.
