Can you post up a good link where I can find some useful info?

Thanks. George.

What is channel 5 used for in the schematic?

Thanks for a great project
Frank
Thanks
Channel 5 is not used yet, but usable pupose can be controlling gain or as throttle lock.

New V3 software:

-Improved gyro signal filtering, using a 'moving average finite response filter', Better stability.

-Interrupt driven 'odd channel only' RX reading. Frees up 2 pins, and more time for the rest of the software.

-preventing of undersaturation of throttle signal. Prevents momentarely motor stopping during high winds.

The hardware is the same.

I don't understand that there are only 3 receiver inputs on the new schematics.
I suppose 4 required: roll, pitch, yaw, collective.

The controller is reading channel 1,3 and 5. Channel 2 is calculated by the space between the channel 1 and 3, and channel 4 is the space between channel 3 and 5.

A nice trick I picked up on this forum.
