Would it be possible to support this? I'm planning on building one of these soon and I'd like to have as many channels as possible. My intention is to fly with one hand on the joystick and one on something else to control a gimbal pan/tilt. I'll have to modify the joystick to have the throttle near my thumb or something but I'm sure it can be done.
Yes, 12ch is possible. As well as adding the extra channels necessary the timing of the existing channels would need adjusted. I don't know a lot about 12ch, but I believe repeat time should be less than 30mS, blank time should be more than 3.520 mS. Feel free to make the mods.
In saying that, the existing 8ch code is designed with a gimbal pan/tilt in mind. My own joystick has it set up this way, the thumb top hat used to control camera pan/tilt.
