Straw tube detector developed for the PANDA experiment in , will be used for tracking and identifcation of charged particles in the Forward Tracker (FT). The detector read-out will be incorporated in PANDA DAQ running in trigger-less mode by means of Synchronization Of Data Acquisition Network (SODAnet). SODAnet is the protocol used to synchronize individual detector subsystems by providing a common clock signal and timestamps. The reconstruction of events out of many fragments is done with the Burst Building Network. The first tests of such system have been performed with prototypes of FT and ElectroMagnetic Calorimeter modules (EMC) in  measuring cosmic rays. Those tests allow to evaluate the detectors as well as the synchronization and processing systems. The reconstruction of particle tracks has been developed and evaluated. The results on the track reconstruction, spatial resolution and energy loss via Time over Threshold (TOT) method is described together with the DAQ performance.
