Barometer fix - PETITION

Barometer fix - PETITION

My findings are if you have BMP085 you are going to get marginal results as the hardware outputs such an erratic signal in MWGui. So hardware limitation..

The MS5611 yields very good results as far as outputting a consistent signal.

I changed the order; first comes type of display, followed by uses lcd.conf and lcd.telemetry. Maybe that is what threw you off.

Re: Altitude Hold improvement solution

Yes that code change fixed the problem.
4 packs and no shooting up.


What is strange now is the Baro Display in the GUI is very erratic, I would have thought the display is data direct from the sensor before it goes through the routines.??

Way to proceed on development releases

Any increment in the number signifies a change, with Beta(dev) releases you can expect a change until the code is stabilized and people testing report success. Then that version can go into 2.2 official.
The decision is up to the developers.

Okay reset TC to default,Mid .5, Expo .0
Same behavior with 1313, 1316, BP085, Motor Stop =yes

Important point, it happens after I arm take off, turn on Baro+Angle+Mag. When I land and disarm, rearm, it "usually" works fine.
