Re: Acetone Parts Finishing

FSi6 Firmware Update- Alarms & Flight Timer

ICYMI I did a full video on the free firmware hack for the FSi6 Flysky branded radio system. This is a NEW update which not only includes 10 full channels, but now includes full alarms, flight timer, RSSI display and more. This takes this under $50 radio and turns it into a beast!

Re: Looking for a source to buy all parts associated with the 'Outernet Box'

Outernet website is the best place to start. I haven't kept up on what they have these days and I heard rumor that the Pi support had been discontinued. Not sure if it is true.

Re: Hello to all and Merry Christmas

Welcome and happy holidays. Not too sure how many Makers we have in the area to be honest but as you probably know- I am. Jigmod electronics system owner is not far in Kincardine too.

Glad to see you here. Look forward to seeing your projects.
