If you look at the lists above you will see some numbers are missing, these have a name of "UNKNOWN".

@MikeB ,

How is it going with the 3.4.x firmware version of ersky9x9XT_rom ?
The " + 1 " to the flight mode numbers?

No rush because with my quad and HEX config, 3.4.x is very unstable.

My 550 HEX refuses to calibrate accelerometers and my 450 quad only spins up 2 motors all the way to almost tip-over before the other two decide to kick in.

So I am back on 3.3.3 Craft & Theory mod for now.

The source code is changed and I'm working on doing a formal release of everything.

OK, made the jump to ArduCopter 3.4.2 and finally got my new 680pro HEX calibrated.
I loaded v.1764-Mike 04.12.2016 ersky9x-r220 9XT

GREAT JOB MikeB !

Any chance for the "Heading Square" ? :D

What, exactly, about the "Heading Square"?

I don't understand why not, it is not dependant on anything being present and should always be displayed.
My 9Xtreme shows one, even with no receiver powered on so no telemetry being received.

Oh, it is there...always north (up) is what I mean.
I have seen heading displays with a line pointed in other directions than North (up).

We need the heading value for that to work. This is the telemetry value "Hdg". I'm not clear that this is being sent from the information I've just checked back on.
We do have the "home direction" value. This is displayed as the last value on the second line of values in the "DEBUG" menu (UP LONG, then RIGHT a few times). Does this have a value other than 0 for you?

No, it is zero
To confirm, second line...last column ?

The second line of numbers, so the third line of the display.
If you have 0 there, when receiving telemetry, then the isn't a "home direction" to process. It may be 0 because the model hasn't moved far enough away for the GPS to work out a home direction.

Just took it outside for a decent lock (11 sats)
There is data being passed in that second line of numbers, last column.

DJI F/C NASA-Light, the GPS needs to be 30 feet away from Home before turning on GPS Hold function, so maybe needs to be 30 feet away ?

We're in the process of updating the ArduPilot wiki for its passthrough telemetry implementation: https://github.com/ArduPilot/ardupilot_wiki/pull/635

In particular, there's a spreadsheet with the spec: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... 0EG6rfjNSI

I'll make another pass on the worksheet by tomorrow to make sure all the info is up to date (it's not right now since the IDs are in the 10xx range instead of 50xx).

I followed the spreadsheet link but got "docs.google.com uses an invalid security certificate. ", so I didn't connect to it!

Why change the order of values in "5004"? It makes things become NOT backward compatible!

Alright!
The directional line is now working with the new ersky9xProvR221a2 firmware.
Now I just need to figure out how it works :D
Looks like data refresh may have a slight delay with heading updates?
