No they both operate within the same 2.4GHz range so interference is possible.

P.S. rx2atp-reconf19-bmp085-v094 is an experimental version of the skech done by happul3 so you should be rather careful with that (not because it is done by happul3, but because it is experimental of course ). My advice - wait until barometer support is included in miru's official release or PM happul3 to guide you on usage of his experimental version.
thaks very much pawelsky .

Terminal emulator for Mac


Does anyone know what program I can use for SETUP mode on a Mac? I tried ZTerm and it worked twice and now I can't get to work. Is there an easier program? Or maybe the setting I need to use?

THanks,

Captcha for MiruLLC orders


FYI I know that nobody likes Captcha, but to keep bots away I had to add it to the MiruLLC order page.

HI, I have Miru mod with an Arduino Nano. I tried to upload modified file in sketch and had some issues. I used the online configurator and for altitude it put 1000000 instead of 0 in altitude settings. I corrected this but still have issues. I tried to put back unmodified file, same issue....

I start the drone as usual with FM2. But no response from the drone. I put FM1, then lights flashes and I can trim, emergency... Put FM2 or FM3, nothing happens. How come FM2 is now disabled??? Any hint?

Did you select the LAND and FM_x switch setup in the sketch configurator?

Used One 3 position switch ex: DX7.....
Maybe file is not created correctly. Can you show me good line about this 3 position switch in the file?

This should be ok?

#define S_LAND S_AUX1
#define S_FMOD S_AUX1

where did you get the sketch?
did you do the setup using USB serial port?

Do not change the 1000000 value - it is there to workaround 100m altitude limit bug in sketch. If you change that to 0 your altitude will be actually limited to 100m.

If you can trim in FM1 it means you have you 3-pos switch setup incorrectly on DX7 and your LAND/FM1/FM2 positions mixed up as triming can only be done in LAND. Fix that in SETUP mode first.

EDIT: Also make sure your throttle stick is centered when launching.
