MSP Failsafe?

Post by japkarian »

I am not sure this is the right forum :

Suppose you are flying using MSP and the serial interface from the processor sending the MSP commands fails an does not recover .. what would happen?

from memory, last valid rx data over serial via MSP is valid for 50 cycles (about 1 second).
After that, the rcData[chan] simoly does not get updated with the outdated serial data but no failsafe condition is set.

You could easily test this by removing the serial connection on the test stand. Be careful as always.
