FrSky Smart Port telemetry with Naze32

I wrote some additions to the Naze32 baseflight firmware to add Smart Port telemetry capability. It requires a X4R-SB receiver and you need to do some soldering.

code, details, instructions, are on my GitHub, where I forked the original baseflight project

https://github.com/frank26080115/baseflight/wiki

the binary hex file is at https://github.com/frank26080115/bas...ree/master/obj , look for the one named baseflight_NAZE_xxxxxx.hex , and tell the GUI to update firmware from local file.

Why is this important? I purchased a X4R-SB instead of a D4R-II pretty much by accident (I'll admit that, they looked the same), but S.BUS is better than CPPM. So far I've only seen APM work with Smart Port using a Teensy3, and something from TauLabs. I hope I am providing another option for STM32 based flight controllers.

You might have seen my previous hack http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2270541

It's almost identical to Naze32, isn't it? It's just the pin you need is in a different place, judging by the schematic at https://www.dropbox.com/s/5p6kx6h6zukeweo/FLIP32a.png , it is the TXD signal on the header named P6
