"Sandro/Michael, love the config software, very easy to use :o)
I'm pretty sure you've already considered this but, could you add a way to edit the panels as well?
For example, change the "Heart Beat" panel to just display…"
"I've been through exactly the same with my Xbee journey. I kept reading comments like the following in the Digi International Support forums:

Another side benefit would be you only need one MinimOSD for…"
"I had this all wired up nicely with my APM1,
now I'm trying to switch everything over to the new APM2 board and can't for-the-life-of-me find the pins I should be connecting to...

I've only had a few outdoor sessions with my setup and have always been able to see the screen. BUT the weather here is often pretty dull so not tried it in very bright sunlight yet.
I do expect to make use of the hood as shown in…"
A little light reading for anyone interested in collision avoidance and recovery.http://www.psicorp.com/library/SR-1450.pdfI like the idea in Fig.14 "The current PSI InstantEye prototype Robust MAV utilizes carbon whiskers to both protect the rotating propellers and to help reorient the vehicle for a rapid recovery from a collision"…See More
