2 way wireless 2.0


So after 3 weeks of debugging assembly language, the 2 way wireless interface supports packet spanning. Now up to 256 bytes can be sent for each cycling of the 72Mhz transmitter. Did packet spanning improve the interface? Hell yeah. Instead of getting a single line of a menu every second, it's now almost instantaneous.

The 2 way algorithm tries to more intelligently cycle the 72Mhz transmitter, resulting in responsiveness which resembles web page loading. When a fragmented packet is detected, it's supposed to keep the 72Mhz off until the entire packet is received. This of course, depends on if data needs to be sent and our assembly language skills.

Also in this update, PID text entry is working. It's just enough of an interface 2 B useful, but without a remote echo, it can't be very functional. So all your user input is sent up the 72Mhz band and all your menus are sent down the 2.4Ghz band.

Now we get 2 debug the upgraded servo PWM code. Also in this issue, have For All Mankind on the hard drive and noticed how incredibly sharp the Apollo footage was compared to modern video. They let the S-II stage separation play until the Earth appeared in the interstage ring and it was way beyond the modern SRB separation video.

The color and sharpness of the Apollo footage made it feel like it was the real deal and everything since has been pretending.
