Hello,

dear Miru, may i ask you three small questions ?

For your information, I read every readme file and notes from your zip package and even tried to guess the answers by exploring your source code. Unfortunately, i didn't manage it

1) Switch assignment
The GEAR switch is for Land/TakeOff
and
The AUX1 switch is for emergency crashing ?

2) Did you implement the auto hovering function when the roll/pitch stick (mode 2) is on neutral position ?
This function was implemented on MHeeli (wifi) mod.
To my point of view, it was quite convenient but not fully satisfactory. Very often during flight, when by no chance the roll/pitch stick passed thru this neutral position, for a brief, the drone was trying to hoover...
To solve this, i did a modification to the MHeeli code to take advantage of the three positions switch on my Spektrum DX7 radio.
- Lower position : Land
- Mid position : Take-off and Fly with auto-hovering (when roll/pitch stick is in neutral function) enabled.
- Upper position : Fly with auto-hovering function disabled
This modification is very convenient when you begin to be used to fly with the drone and if the pilot doesn't dare to switch to the No Hoovering flight, he can stay on the mid position and stay safe...

I went through you code, pfuuuuu, not easily understandable for me...
So, if you could help me to understand if auto-hoovering is implemented when roll/pitch stick is on neutral it would give me some clue if i need to study a modification to implement the three position switch trick.

3) Drone setup and starting procedure.
3.1 Do we need to place both radio stick to neutral in order to start ?
I suppose, the response is Yes !
3.2 Do we need to set the "travel adjust" values of radio channels in order to get the correct AT values to be sent to the drone (-1, 0 and +1) ?

Well, thank's for this mod Miru, it sounds good.
