"Kent, I'd be very interested in SBUS, because there are some limitations w/ PPM and Arducopter (only supports 12 channels PPM), and the little PPM/SBUS decoders usually have more functions with SBUS (like the ability to output 9-16 instead of…"

"Are the 900x's compatible with older modems?  I can't get mine to talk to my 3dr modem.  I noticed a few of the settings were different and changed them to match the 3dr modem, but it won't connect. "

Mission - ROI - copter direction vs gimbal direction

Hi, I'm trying to plan a flight and am having trouble finding one bit of information.  I remember reading in the past, there is a setting about telling the copter if it should point its nose towards the ROI, or simply rotate the gimbal towards the ROI.  Can someone tell me where I can set this?  I need to point the nose of the copter towards the ROI, due to my non-retractable landing gear.  Thank youSee More
