Deviation firmware


Hi, All,

Anyone on this forum familiar with this firmware? I recently purchased a JumperT8SG + v2. Small, about 3/4 of my DX6. Multiprotocol, must have 30+, so real handy for the many microquads these days. Problem is it's not exactly intuitive for a 10 year Spektrum guy. Having particular trouble assigning channels to switches.

If anyone is familiar, I'd be more than willing to PAY for a tutorial or two. Seriously!

Not sure how similar this is to the open firmware on a Taranis or similar. Could be a starting point.

Open to any and all suggestions!

Thanks, John

Wytheville Swap Meet


Hi, all,

Every year about this time I seem to post the same message. Anyone have info about date of this event, if still being held? I sent an email to an address I had for Barney Blankenship, but received no reply.

Anyone?

Thanks, John

The Wytheville swap meet is not listed in the AMA magazine and I was told they are not having it this year?

Thank you. Shame, as I've got lots to sell.

Look in the AMA mag under non fly events. The SM at Winston Salem are better attended and you will have more luck selling there.

Which one is aileron again?
Maybe post a photo of what all you're planning to sell to give the locals a chance?

Thanks for the suggestion. At this time, have 11 I'd like to sell. To save myself a little effort, I'll just list them here. Any interest, give me a call
521-5016. Better yet, come by and we can discuss, perhaps test fly, discuss pricing, etc. Also, please feel free to show the list to others that
may be interested. I'll be glad to take pics, by the way, if anyone is interested.

Precision Aero Ultimate AMR v2
Eflite Texan AT-6
Eachine US65 micro quad
Blade MCPS, custom painted fiberglas canopy, spares
Strix Stratosurfer - great video or FPV platform
Stevens Aero SHAFT
Mountain Models Tom e Boy
Mountain Models Tyro 100
Voluntex Firstar
Eflite CRay
Model Aero Sportster

I'm not exiting the hobby, just trying to thin the fleet. Low prices, not trying to max the return!

Cheers, John
