"There are some caveats where we can use some frequencies as down-link only, at limited power and intermittent only, which is not much use!2.4 is noisy but is allowed (I think the limit for telem here on 2.4 is 10mW), At one time I was using 2.4…"

"Just an update, also tested the Baro, it is working but sending out quite random numbers, but it is sending out data, so probably not the reason for the stalling. Also checked associated tracks for continuity, all ok. So looks even more like the…"
