Re: Taranis qx7s Bootloader - Firmware - Opentx

So If I understand it wright I don't need the own Taranis firmware on the Taranis website because OpenTX is replacing the Taranis firmware ? You are still mixing things. https://imgur.com/LaQKhq3l.png There is only openTX on the webside. (And the HF module firmware) - There is the transmitter opera...

Differential on a flying wing when using a SxR

On the other hand I am not sure if it would be critical or not to use the 5V data / signal line (from a nano) to the 3.3 V data / signal line of the receiver.
Which RX please?

Re: Any chance to add the Pro Micro Board to OSX in the near future ?

The main reason I am not that happy with the Pro Mini board is, that the upload over a USB-TTL converter may or may not work.

Hi João. Would prefer the Maple Mini (left one). But the size compared to the Pro mini! https://imgur.com/7UUVDLtl.png The one on the right, that is NOT a genuine Pro mini, but has a LGT8F328P. A bit faster than the original 328, End of the year I am going to do some tests with oXs on those. br KH
