New Features

  • Mag failure detection bypassed for all boards. This alows to run the firmware on boards without compass sensors present. Now you can upload and install the firmware and configure it if magnetometer is missing. However, in order to perform tracking or test pan servo, you have to install the magnetometer.

  • Added BLUEPILL specific target for Blue Pill board. Gyros, acc and baro code has been removed for this target, reducing the size of the firmware. The BLUEPILL hex file can be loaded on NAZE32 and Flip32 boards too, they will run it.

Read more about wiring schematics for bluepill board are here, and how to install and setup it here.

  • Parsed Aframe from LTM in order to get course data from ingoing telemetry.
  • Course is sent on Aframes in order to provide course data to outgoint LTM telemetry.
  • Aircraft home lat/lon/alt data is sent on Oframes in order to provide aircraft home position to outgoing LTM telemetry.

Bugfixes

  • Fixed a bug on the display when the hdop data is displayed. Lat / Lon has been replaced by Pos to leave more space for hdop.

  • Fixed a bug that causes to display big numbers in altitude and distance.

  • Minus sign for negative altitudes before home is set.

  • Some bugfixes in Mavlink protocol for outgoing telemetry related with course.

Important! CC3D and SPRACINGF3 are not fully supported, there is still pending issues and more coding, testing, and feedback are needed.
