The FrSky Normal Precision Variometer measures the rate of change of altitude by detecting the change in air pressure (static pressure) as altitude changes.
When used with a FrSky transmitter like the Taranis, you can actually create mixes that use the feedback from the vario sensor. For example, you can have your motor reduce power when you reach a set altitude point. An excellent feature for sites that have flight ceilings.
Another nice feature of the vario is the ability to connect the FSH-01 sensor hub, thus allowing the X8R receiver's to use the existing analog sensors.
