horus x12s

The Horus X12S is FrSky's flagship transmitter, with an impressive 4.3 inch, TFT color display. The 480 x 272 transflective display produces sharp, colorful images even when viewed in direct sunlight. The rotary encoder and 6 well placed, tactile pushbuttons allow quick navigation of the various menus and programming their contents. The radio has a solid feel which inspires a sensation of quality. The gimbals are FrSky's best, in CNC milled aluminium with 6 ball bearings and contactless hall effect sensors. Steel cross bars pivoting on ball bearings and a teflon contact surface give the gimbals a very positive feel around center and a silky smooth travel. The Switches and pots are also high quality units. The switches have a positive action, while the pots and sliders are silky smooth.
The most important aspect for any transmitter is maintaining a rock solid connection with the receiver. FrSky is well known for its frequency hopping ACCST technology taking advantage of the entire 2.4GHz band, resulting in excellent range and reliability. The Horus is compatible with most of FrSky's Telemetry and non-Telemetry receivers as well as sensors. With a suitable tx module, the JR style external RF module bay allows operation with Futaba, Spektrum, JR, Aisin, and other receivers.
The radio has the ability to run two different operating systems. The Horus is supplied with FrSky's FrTX Operating System, which is and easy to program, intuitive menu driven operating system. Advanced users are able to install OpenTX. The Open TX developers have created a visually impressive interface for the feature rich OpenTX 2.2 operating system. Both operating systems are continually being developed and will provide additional features and capabilities to the Horus as time goes on.

Hi I have noticed that there is nothing on here with reference to the Horus x12s I have had one of these transmitters since they first came out and have wanted to use the built in GPS sensor what I want to do is to use the internal sensor and use a GPS sensor on the telemetry from the model to get a reading of the distance between the two, has anyone else managed to do this yet? I think that this transmitter was released a little early before Frsky had worked out what it could do or what customers wanted/expected it to do, except for the adverts and the manual stating that it had a GPS sensor fitted there is nothing to show/instruct how to make use of it.

Looking forward to getting replies showing that I must be blind and that it is easy to use with an example showing how to use it.

Regards Poppy Ann.

GPS

@poppyann

You can get a reading of distance from the takeoff point, to the plane just using the GPS module in the plane.

You can get distance on the ground, and distance to the plane. (Hope that makes sence)

See lines 20 and 22.

GPS Distance

You need these two lines in the telemetry.

Dist-V is the distance from the start point to the plane.

Dist-H is the distance on the ground from the start point to a point vertically below the plane.
