Re: Harakiri aka multiwii port to stm32

According to the OSD, one of the telemetry info is the number of satellites locked in. I've yet to find how to display it on Taranis. Actually, I'm after some sort of indicator for GPS position deviation because solid GPS hold req'd good converged deviation, which doesn't happen until some 20sec or...

Copper screen is much more rigid so it's better to build a box with it. However, it is heavier. My rule of...

Using r79, I've found that it is more difficult to get good PH on my F330, whereas in larger frame F450 (youtube video) it is superbly steady.
