Re: openTx is moving to github!

The more I look to github the more I find it confusing, including email notifications not specifying what was modified if companion or opentx
I really don't like it at all.

Re: openTx is moving to github!

I'm not happy at all we got rid of SVN especially for companion9x, also for the merging in the same repository...
What to say.... ah yes....

Re: Build instructions for OpenTX

are you building it with the launchpad arm gcc? Maybe give me the preferred build line and I'll try to match you with the launchpad 4.7.4 environment I've been building with one you offered prior... make PCB=TARANIS EXT=FRSKY SDCARD=YES PPM_CENTER_ADJUSTABLE=YES FLIGHT_MODES=YES AUTOSWITCH=YES PPM_...

Re: Build instructions for OpenTX

4.7.3 (home compiled) increases size a little compared to 4.7.2
4.7.2 opentx.bin=187604
4.7.3 opentx.bin=188172

but still doesn't add 30k+

Re: Build instructions for OpenTX

I compiled the toolchain by myself, and I'm on gcc 4.7.2 with newlib 1.20.0
I also noticed the huge difference passing from yagarto to launchpad...
For this reason I continue compiling by myself keeping the same size.
I tested also 4.7.3 compiled by myself and i got the same exact size.

Re: Will FW update lose my model settings?

Nice attitude:
Hobbyking get a open surce software, breaks gpl license altering it and not releasing new sources, furthermore making settings unreadable to any pc software (eepe and companion), and you blame companion ?
Please continue donating to HK buying their radios.
