Taranis PCB dimensional drawings?

Hi, after doing a bunch of mods to my Taranis, I thought I would finally gut it and use the internals to build an all-custom groundstation. Does anybody by any chance already have a drawing of the main PCB with the switches and the LCD? I kinda suck at measuring stuff and transferring it to drawing ...

Re: Can't make on Linux

I'll try to pick everything together. But interesting enough, it does produce a working c9x2 binary, so whatever fails seems to be something else.

Re: 2.02: Can't write eeprom

Using 5.11.1. I finally got the "old" c9x compiled and with that, it works - with the same AVRDude. I didn't look into the code but could it be that there is a typo and AVRDude is actually called with different parameters than c9X2 claims?

Re: Spyware in c9x?!

Re: Spyware in c9x?!

Re: Arduino-based mode-switch for APM

I just noticed you have a LAND button on your board. What APM do you have? I have 3DR and a HK and the Mission planner does not have a LAND mode. How does yours work? Uhm, yes, APM:Copter has a land mode which is selectable from MP. I'm not sure about APM:Plane, though. You can check this in the AP...

Re: What is the size of the 9x stick set screw?

It's M3. I made myself stick handles from FIMO. In those I drilled holes and glued normal M3 standoffs from Hobby King inside. Fits perfectly.
M3 does not only indicate the diameter but also the pitch, according to ISO.

Nope, but it's rejecting sender addresses from a nonexistent domain, which is pretty much default config in postfix.

What kind of news are you looking for? I was otherwise engaged and one of my dogs died, so I wasn't really looking for a fab.

Re: Want override switch for flight mode on hex

Easy:

Source: MAX
Weight: 16 (or whatever value you need)
Switch: Thr
Multpx: replace

If you use P3 as source with a weight of 16, flipping the THR switch causes the 16% of the current value of P3 to be assigned to channel 5.
I have exactly this config, just with ELE being my "panic button" :).
