OGN-R PilotAware / Re: OGN Latest not installing!

Thanks Lee, yes was expecting the unattended install, but the behaviour was as I described in my case - had to pick the OS, and confirm a disk overwrite. After that all completed OK so I am up and running. Maybe just for the benefit of others, can you Ian Melville let us know how you get on? It could well be a user error on my part. Thanks

After I have manually selected the OS from the boot menu and said that it's ok to write over the disk, then the install runs to completion and I can see ./ ready to run.

OK - just plugged in a monitor - (should have done this before) and there was an outstanding GUI prompt asking me which OS I wanted to install - choice of 1. Added a USB mouse to the Pi, selected the OS, then selected 'install' and off we go ..... looks like we are not honouring 'recovery.cmdline' and it's `uninstaller quiet ramdisk_size=32768 root=/dev/ram0 init=/init vt.cur_default=1 elevator=deadline silentinstall`. Looks like my power supply was not the problem, and the single blink of the green light at the start was enough to read from the sd card enough to put up the 'which OS?' prompt.

Anyone have any ideas please? Thanks

Thanks Lee, that is the very document that I have been using, and I get the same problem as documented @,1742.0.html by Wadoadi.

I have just taken delivery of a pukka Pi power supply from the PiHut and still have the same problem with different cards on different Pi3B+ chassis. Is this just me? Do you have an IMG file that we can use rather than the 'self install and configure' in

If not, then will try some other sd / chassis combinations. Thanks again

An old thread I know, and have seen that my power supply might be the problem so have ordered a pukka Pi item. I have the same red power light on but no green select light when I boot the Pi, and wondering if this is just a problem during the 'initialise' process. I have had a station running fine on my hardware but scared failed so trying to rebuild. I am ok to be patient and wait for the new power supply to arrive, but if anyone can tell me what the base OS might be, then I can do the `curl -s | bash` and hope that this gets me going. Am i right? Maybe there is an ISO of the built system somewhere?

If this is the way it has to be, then sorry for the bother and I will be patient, but if there are options here then am all ears.

Congratulations Keith (and team) on the OBE! Well deserved.

Thanks, Richard

Hello, I think that this topic has been raised before some time ago, but would appreciate some help here.

I have a Rosetta PAW audio out connected to my MicroAvionics via a cable and all is good with the audio signal. I also use SkyDemon on an iPad which is connected via BlueTooth to a MM005 MicroAvionics powered interface.

In flight getting no sound from Skydemon to my headset even though the iPad on the ground generates sounds as I would expect. I would have thought that the bluetooth connection from the iPad to the MicroAvionics powered interface which hosts my headset would have carried the audio through to my headset, but is V quiet or absent - Microlight flexwing / open cockpit.

Has anyone been here before and can offer a solution? I do NOT have 2 x audio inputs to my powered interface and in any case that would mean an audio cable from my kneepad to the unit which is less than ideal - I had hoped that the bluetooth would perform this function.

Would appreciate you sharing your experiences. Thanks, Richard

Not sure where you are proposing to mount your Rosetta, but I have had very satisfactory results using sticky backed velcro.

I think that this has been discussed in various ways before, but had some time on a windy day and have created a basic utility to take the GPGGA sentences from .trk files and convert them into .kml files that can be opened with Google Earth.

You just need a PC with PERL installed which is standard on a MAC and downloadable for free to a Windows PC. No mobile or tablet support.

Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated.

Friend of mine had the same problem as was indeed the micro usb interface on the Pi. Replaced it himself with a Chinese part for about £6 and a bit of solder. All well again

I have my Rosetta mounted inside the nose of a Mainair Blade.

I put a broad sticky backed Velcro strip on the Rosetta and stuck the complimentary Velcro with Gorilla Glue as far forward in the nose as possible and allowed it to dry.

Provides for secure, tidy and removable mount at maybe 20 degrees off the vertical. Adjusted both aerials to point vertically down.

Powered through an Anker USB adapter as per recommendation switched through a fused relay supply off the ignition key.

Simple to set up and has proved reliable. Thanks

Good man. Thanks for the support.

Thanks Peter for the prompt service. Opened the case, and 1 x USB device was rolling around the box, and the other was loose. So, fixed that, tried again and all is well!

PS, for my quick test I ran the Rosetta off a Nokia phone charger rated at 5.0V and 1200mA. Will be using my Anker cigarette lighter setup for the Flex, but helped me here for a quick check.

Good view of sky with Rosetta sitting in the sun on a garden chair.

Thanks again. Richard

Just taken delivery of a Rosetta, and getting red indications for ADS-B, TRX, BMP and GPS.
The logs repeat 'Await Radio Start'
Config - Mode-CS / Long Range / +/-50000ft
Powered on an Anker USB in the car cigarette lighter, Rosetta on car bonnet using supplied USB power lead
License key added, and firmware is 20180429

Any ideas please? Thanks, Richard
