Re: Question about STM32F401CCU6 black Pill Board

Hi João. Don't have a black pill, only blue pill and maple mini. But I see problems with bootloader mode (blue pill) when using the Arduino IDE under Linux: I don't see that under WIN 10. I guess, you are using Linux?! But better ask here https://stm32duinoforum.com/forum/index_php.html ;) br KH

Re: RPM resolution?

You are using a FrSky D8R-II plus.

Mstrens 'oXs_config_basic.h' lists this line here

Code: Select all

#define PROTOCOL  FRSKY_SPORT   // select between FRSKY_SPORT , FRSKY_HUB , FRSKY_SPORT_HUB , MULTIPLEX , HOTT, JETI
This is NOT working, must be FRSKY_HUB

Re: How to Arduino for openXVario?

Your Arduino IDE screen should look like this

In this screen you can adjust 'by editing' the two config file to your needs.

You can do that directly or use the CONFIGURATOR ...

After doing so, flash the Pro mini like you did with 'BLINK.ino'.
