Atto Pilot Voltage and Current Sensor- Reverse Current

Hi- I used an Atto Sensor with Simon K regenerative breaking FW- it failed. I guess due to back current generated, giving a negative input for the sensor? Any idea how to protect the Atto Sensor against reverse current to the battery? I guess a simple antiparalell Shottky won´t do due to the delta U...

Re: I2C OLED thread

Awesome-
great idea- just put a mix on a unused switch and assign a stick combo- this way I will not use an extra channel!
Perhaps program it that way that the mix is disabled as soon as there is throttle input also- otherwise one also could name it the "flip switch" ;-)
Thanks!
