@pablomar13 are you using an updated version of 3dr-services. I'm looking through github.com/3drobotics/ardupilot and github.com/dronekit/dronekit-android and I'm not finding anything that would be preventing the sending or receiving of vfr_hud messages

@TShapinsky 3DR Services is up to date. Have you tried reading altitude with Tower or Solo app with a 2.4.0 Solo? Coz I don't want to update any of my other Solos right now.

@TShapinsky and I don't think it has to do with dronekit since vfr_hud messages work with 2.3.0 Solos.

@pablomar13 can you add Log.d("alt","updating altitude"); to line 626 of your DroneApi.java and see if it prints "updating altitude" to logs?

@TShapinsky are you able to replicate the issue on your side as well?

I don't have any copters running the 2.4 version of sololink. Everything is working on my end.

@pablomar13 I got my hands on a 2.4.0 copter so you don't have to worry about that now

@TShapinsky ok! I hope it's a software thing and not that my barometer went nuts :/

@pablomar13 it is getting an altitude, but that altitude is 100 times smaller than it should be. I'm going to talk to someone who works on the flight code later to see what we can do about it

@TShapinsky okay... I was always getting 0 or -0 as a result. So that would make sense.

I bet if you were to turn on a solo and then bring it to somewhere 30 meters off the ground you would get a non zero value. thanks for reporting this issue @pablomar13
