Also i heard rx601 can't do cppm. what does that mean??
I would recommend going with the newer r620x. That gets you telemetry for flight battery voltage and flightlog data, both of which are nice to have. It's cheaper than an r615x and a telemetry module. No rx battery voltage, but a 250 quad probably doesn't have one of those.

Since CPPM gets you all your channels on one pin, you aren't limited to the number of pins for your channel count. While the r615X is 6 channels either way, the r620X is 12 channels. It also comes in an SBUS version (like CPPM, but a different wire protocol). Make sure you get the one your flight controller and any other devices can speak.

Similarly, you can go down a step, and get a r415X. No telemetry, but it has 6 channels in CPPM mode.

For those not familiar with teespring, or crowdfunding in general, the way this works is that they take your payment information when you place the order. If the minimal sales goal is met by the end of the campaign, then they charge you and start printing and shipping shirts. If that goal isn't met, then they just throw everything out, and you are not charged.

Not that thiks is basically a non-profit campaign to see how much interest there is in such things. I set the prices as low as I could and still be in line with teespring policies regarding pricing, and will make at most US$ 0.01 per shirt, if that. I'd donate the money to PB if he took such.

Devo 7r parts source?

My apologies for jumping in on this thread, but i figured that if anyone knew, it would be you guys...

I recently bricked my 7e after a failed range mod and then a failed 8s upgrade mod.

I'm currently flying with a Turnigy FS-i6 which is a nice transmitter.

I'm going to embark on another build soon and am keen to use the Devo, but will need to replace the main board.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a parts supplier for the 7e?

Thanks.

no problem, I saw someone already patch the 0.5A for devo10 to run into a 10mw devo10, im just wondering if someone already did for devo7 as well.
