Thanks for the tips. It does work very well! 

A‌ny tips regarding the weather?

P‌lease note that I have found an app on Android (Speedify) which allows me to be connected both at the same time on the Stratux wifi and the 4G connection. Therefore, I manage to have last minute weather/wind information on the 4G even if I am connected to the Stratux wifi.

Y‌et, I know that the 4G connection is not ideal in the plane (connection issue) which is why I need to check if it does work with the Stratux.

R‌egards,

E‌tienne‌‌‌‌

Hi everyone.
I have been able to complete my Stratux with flarm setup.
H‌ave not been able to test the Flarm receiving yet as the snow here in Norway have put a damper on glider flying but logs indicate that it works.
I‌ ended up copy/paste the item list form stratux.me to ebay and order everything from there.
3‌D printed my own case as I was not happy with the one offered, I made my own remix of this one:  https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1707442

I‌ will sit down and make a step by step guide to what I did and post it here in a few days.
My confusion in the start was the MPU9250+BMP280 sensor. I read some old posts from before or as this was released that confused me. It took me some time to understand that Smile

a‌s for weather, I find using 3/4G to be more than good enough where I fly, the easiest way to keep your 3g connection while connected to the Stratux wifi is to switch form DHCP to Static IP on your mobile device and remove the Gateway address.
Tested this on both iphone and ipad.

Hi all.
After doing the above, to get the Stratux working with flarm based on this post: https://www.reddit.com/r/stratux/comments/6pa2nj/flarm_receiver_functionality/
I‌ did the following after loading the Stratux image on the SD card and starting the Pi:

//Log in using SSH over wifiHotSpot or HDMI/Keyboard
sudo raspi-config
//expand file system and reboot

//Log in using SSH over wifiHotSpot or HDMI/Keyboard
sudo ifup eth0

//Log in using SSH to eth0 IP address
sudo su
systemctl start ntp
service stratux stop
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libconfig9
sudo apt-get install libjpeg8
wget https://storage.googleapis.com/golang/go1.9.linux-armv6l.tar.gz
sudo tar -C /root -xzf go1.9.linux-armv6l.tar.gz
cd /root/stratux
export PATH=/root/go/bin:${PATH}
export GOROOT=/root/go 
export GOPATH=/root/go_path
cd /
rm -Rf /root/stratux
cd && git clone https://github.com/WiringPi/WiringPi.git && cd WiringPi/wiringPi && make static && make install-static
cd && git clone https://github.com/0x74-0x62/stratux.git && cd stratux && git checkout remotes/origin/devel/flarm_receiver && make && make install

Is there any benefit to that?  I'm just using the GDL90 connection from the standard Stratux install.

If you are flying in Europe you will benefit from seeing FLARM targets. e.g. gliders, ultralights and SAR helicopters instead of the unavailable 978 UAT traffic.

Just one note: the current FLARM executable produces an (ignorable) error message with a blinking green LED. The developer is already working on it.

Quick question, have you replaced the 978 mhz antenna or are you using the one that came with the Stratux kit?

Oh wow!  I just thought this was a FLARM connection to SD.  I hadn't realized it was a FLARM receiver.
