Barometer (external) PROBLEM

Hello! There was a big problem when connecting an external barometer to the ArduCopter 3.6.5 (Last stable). In the full list of settings there is no such parameter as GND_PROBE_EXT: External barometers to probe

Therefore, I can configure it external barometer. I want to know why this parameter is missing? Indeed, at the very beginning of the article it is written that since version 3.6 there is such an opportunity.

pixhawk 2.4.6

I can’t find it. Can someone check it? Please.

I found this parameter in the 3.7.0 firmware for KAKUTE F7 but I have not found in the firmware for the pixhawk. It looks like the developers have forgotten to implement an external barometer for pixhawk. I am also interested to connect an external barometer. I will wait until it is possible…

It is very sad that the developers made such a mistake, maybe they should say it somehow, don’t know if there are any topics or email for bug reports?

I have installed ArduPlane 3.9.5 AND ALSO THERE ARE NO SUCH POINT.

Last beta (ArduCopter V3.6.6-rc2)

Hey.
The external barometer in the firmware version 3.6.6 will be included extensively. I heard from the developer :slight_smile:
