Is there any 128x64 touch screen that could be used instead of a normal screen?

EDIT: Told you it was crazy :mrgreen:
Not so crazy, I rather like the idea, as long as it's not colour.
I am sure we could find one we could make work.

Re: Introduction to the openx vario/altimeter

My confusion is that the openxvario and real Arduino shows the RXI connection. On my board it's RXD and seems to go to the same pin? Per the wiki, . ShowMaster, I think that is RX1, not RXI, on a board with multiple UARTS there would be RX1, RX2 etc. With one UART it is shown as RXD (Receive Data)....

Yes, you should make the wiring as Mike as suggested.
It might be easier to change the white and black wires at the four pin end, but either end would do.

The Gruvin9x uses an Atmega 2560 and the sky9x uses the ARM Cortex 32 bit M3. Neither of these seem to be supported. If that...

Re: 9x upgrade to ATmega128A3-AU + Reboot With Horiz Trims

OK, thanks, it does not look like the "A" chip is the difference then, will have to keep looking.

I will be fitting a 2561 to another TX, maybe to-night, I will see how that goes.

Mike, are the Lipo sensor and FAS-40 you are using SPORT sensors, or the old style through a hub to the SPORT on an X8R?

Also which telemetry mod did you use on that TX?

Re: Module advice

If you use the XJT in D8 mode with telemetry receivers other than the X8R, telemetry data will be available on the RS232 port (4 pin) on the XJT module. So using a mod as ShowMaster suggests will work. Note that in D16 mode there is no telemetry on the RS232 port, it is only on the SPORT. I can conf...
