Fsi6 Telemetry/Mavlink Firmware: Special Version

*Update: After discussion, it is decided that experimental unique mavlink/telemetry versions of the fsi6 mod firmware is better suited to use Basei6_updater from now on as it will allow faster testing, without the need for .exe packaging. This means it is a little bit more complicated for the average user to learn to do, but it means that also the user will be able to customise telemetry menu as required before flashing to i6 transmitter (only some telemetry parameters can fit onto screen at one time, so selection of those is necessary before flashing). Users who are uncertain using this version should either learn to use it, or stick to simple Windows .exe (Executable) version which is what everyone seems to use (but new experimental .exe version releases are less frequent than .bin file releases).

Description:

A collection of software modifications for the FlySky i6, some useful, some experiment. All use of this repository is experimental and you use at your own risk. But, progress is being made. Please also note that this project is now contributed by many developers/engineers who deserve lots of recognition for their (free) time, knowledge & effort, so please say thanks to all contributors and not me as a single entity. Open/Free Devs need hugs too. Thanks :)

Project goals:

  • Increase number of channels (using PPM or ibus)
  • Enable Mavlink/APM Telemetry (using ia6b receiver)
  • Ability to edit TX Voltage reading & alarm (allowing lithium battery power)
  • Edit duration of 1 minute 'inactive' alarm
  • Functional Flight Timer
  • RSSI

Notable thanks to contributors (alphabetical order): Benbojangles, DBorthwick, mhils, Povlhp, qba667,ThomHpl
