"Tim, There is a brand new SD card structure for 2.2. If you look on the 2.2-rc12 download page, you will see a link also to the SD card download. I believe that the passthru sensors are hidden from the telemetry page. You need to write the LUA code…"

"Hi just updated X9D   to 2.2 but got message warning about sd card not v2.2 and extra sensors not detected? Hmmmm     I think i will stick to 2.1.9  and teeny solution , all a bit beyond my experience to solve…"

"The log shows a top speed of 18.343 m/s which is just over 40mph. Would suggest comparing what you see on the Taranis with Mission Planner to see if there is a discrepancy. Remember that Mission planner likely shows speed in km/h, so when doing the…"

"I think this is the log. The time is says doesn't make sense so I'm not %100 sure. I sure don't see anything on here that looks even remotely close to 60 mph??? I swear that's what it said on my Taranis... perhaps it's a…"

"Okay so if I recall it was headed north when it was armed and heading south probably west / south-west by 2000-4000 feet or so when I looked down and noticed the arrow outside the box. As I recall the bearing / the direction the arrow was pointing…"

Paul Atherton replied to Rolf Blomgren's discussion APM MavLink to FrSky X8R S.Port converter
"Richard, the arrow inside the radar box has nothing to do with speed. It is purely based on the change of lat/long (position coordinates from GPS) and change in bearing (Hdg) after the craft is armed compared to before."

Richard Kennedy replied to Rolf Blomgren's discussion APM MavLink to FrSky X8R S.Port converter
"Well... as a matter of fact I did note that going with a stiff breeze I was going 60 mph. Not exceptionally unusual for a plane. Thanks for looking into it.  "

Paul Atherton replied to Rolf Blomgren's discussion APM MavLink to FrSky X8R S.Port converter
"Richard, I have tested this tonight, and I can get the arrow outside the box, but only under extreme circumstances - like when the latitude changes vastly during the flight - simulating the craft having flown 40+km. I do agree that the arrow should…"

"Tim, I have attached a spreadsheet containing details of the telemetry sensors and values contained in each, which are produced by using the passthru protocol you refer to. Thanks to Luis Vale for providing these to me and allowing me to share here.…"

"No worries Richard. I'll check this on 2.1.9 myself and see if I can reproduce the issue. Cheers, Paul"
