OK, so all inputs could be pots or switches depending on what the user desired. I assume switches still need to be calibrated during set up.

There is an event menu. Things that *I* need, like gear door sequencing have always been a focus!

Yes, there is a service menu where calibration is done, including defining switches and their analog<>digital conversion values.

Please don't clutter the thread with questions about the release. This is a technical discussion thread only. Thanks!

Hello Jim,

Have you got the specials certifications to use it in FRANCE ?

Thanks.

There are quite a few 3 cell Lipo setups for other radios that use the 4x4x2 setup.

Does this give a longer time or is the extra voltage just wasted?

Not that I am saying that the radio will not stay on long enough. It is just that quite a few people already have this 3 cell Lipo running in their radio.

The most channels I have ever used was 14 on my B-25. I guess I could actually use two more for a bomb bay door and bomb release. However, even with that I would not need any more switches. My way of saying that I believe this radio will have enough inputs.

If you are ever going to get that transmitter out you are going to have to freeze the design and concentrate on getting it into production.
You can change things later with an update if you have to.

Actual production (building of hardware) has nothing to do with coding. The hardware design was frozen after adding the SD media card support.

Freezing the design includes coding. The most time consuming task in this type of project is testing of the software.

I'm not sure dirtybird was referring to the hardware exclusively. Regardless, software (firmware) also has a design, of course, and one that must be frozen in order for a release to take place. How would you assess the maturity of the 3216 firmware? Alpha, beta, release candidate, unknown, top-secret??

Update: dirtybird answered while I was typing

not really... software is soft and squishy... hardware needs to be built, so while it's being built, may as well keep playing with the squishy parts.

Jim has very high standards for the radio quality simply due to safety... I think we should just let him run his own project, when it's ready it'll be tested and ready.

I only have two classes of firmware, functional and release. We are not at release yet.

As far as freezing firmware, that does not occur in the real world. You can release what is considered a "stable" release as well as newer versions. Continuing changes should not affect an actual release date, and serves to find existing issues that may not otherwise be found.

Charging Tx


Can the Tx battery be charged through the Tx jack? --or will we have to deal with a Futaba -like Tx where the Bat has to be removed?
