I fly in a motion capture lab, and I send commands via a telemetry modem to several other multiwii boards, like the AIO pro from HK... like in this vi...

Is there a modification on the MW code for this tests?? or everything is on the "reader" side??

also, in the second part, does your function "askMsp" clears (flush) the serial port?? and do you put a sleep or small delay on it???
