Re: Harakiri aka multiwii port to stm32

@Crashpilot1000: You should take a look at this documentation http://git-scm.com/documentation. git seems hard but it can be a blessing when it comes to tracking changes, finding bugs which weren't there some versions ago and letting others contribute. if you have any problems or questions you could always ask.

Re: Naze32 hardware discussion thread

To remove the stm32 just cut every leg with a precision cutter. After that it's easy to remove the legs from the pcb using a soldering iron. I know it kills the chip but we are talking about replacing a broken chip.

I want early beta access. If i remember correctly you want to implement the osd on the ground using the telemetry data. Will there be some analog inputs and some io's left on the board to be able to switch between multiple receivers? Would be great to include diversity logic into the same chip.

The same thing here, just flashed the newest baseflight using the download option in baseflight configurator. The gps works fine using gps_type=0 and gps_baudrate=0. But it doesn't work using gps_type=1 and gps_baudrate=0.
