Hi all, I’m using a uAvionix Ping200X transponder connected to a Cube Orange running Arduplane 4.2.0. I’m getting some unexpected behaviour with the “On Ground” flag, which is part of the ADS-B Transponder functionality.
I’m seeing a check mark next to “On Ground” in the Transponder tab in Mission Planner, indicating that my Ping200X has its Air/Ground state set to “Ground”. However, at the same time the variable xpdr_airborne_status is showing True in the Status tab, indicating that my Ping200X has its Air/Ground state set to “Airborne”.
This is not just a trivial matter, since, if the transponder is set to “Ground” then it will be filtered out of Air Traffic Control’s enroute displays, rendering it effectively useless.
Is there a way to confirm the true status of the transponder’s Air/Ground state in Mission Planner?
Thanks all in advance.
