Just a few questions here.Under the battery on the Step 10 updates, what is that circuit board and what is its purpose?Does this display the rate of change in altitude or just beep to represent ascent and decent?I am looking at a project addition to something I have already built for use in Powered Parachutes. I would like to have the rate of ascent and decent shown and also want to use a different display. Just curious, as it is hard to see what the display is showing on the video.Thanks
3 years later no followup? or did I miss it?
I know this instructable is a bit older but I am having alot of difficulty understanding the code process for sending data to the Nextion panel. I am new to this but let me explain. I have a very simple code I compiled using various projects to obtain information from a BME280 and convert it and display it. It functions fine with a small OLED screen, however, I cannot for the life of me determine the correct commands to send it to the Nextion. I was able to do a sample project and get a diode to display data. Once i removed the diode information, added the BME280 information nothing worked.
Yes perfect! Thank you. I now have something to understand coding to change the base. I also will have to figure out how to modify it from the display you used to the one im using and the BME280. Also want to factor in the variometer coding as well.
The second version will not open in IDE. can you post somewhere the text?

Thank you for responding. I ordered a BME280 and a project box off of Amazon. Did you by chance post the example code? I'll obviously have some mods I will need to do but I'd love to have a headstart. I'm also going to be using a different display. Long-term goal is to display altitude, density altitude, Outside Air Temp and rate of change over time (ft per minute rise or fall) . This is all to be put on an experimental aircraft.
