Hi Mahowik, after a long winter recess, I tried out your firmware. I must say: it is a great advantage over the original software. Good job! The only thing that concerns me, is that my FLD-02 implementation went somehow lost. So, in my view there is room for improvement of all the telemetry related ...

That works when all devices are on the same i2c bus.
However, there is room for improvement by connecting the compass to the second i2c bus of module MPU6050. Then you have to uncomment the definition mentioned above.
