"Hi Tridge,
'that doesn't work as I tried to explain previously. The problem is the two radios in the support aircraft interfere badly with each other even if running on different frequencies.
If you use LBT_RSSI as I described earlier it can be made…"

"Hi Tridge, as a work around for people that arent lucky enough to have a RFD900x, surely running two telemetry radios off a companion PC in the support A/C, one to the retrieval a/c and the other to the base.  The companion PC would be connected to…"

"Hey,
Sadly SydneyRPA's is also not ready in time.  We had some motor delivery issues for our Support AC.  Sorry Aussie vendors you made us wait 6.5 weeks for a DLE 30.....  I got it in 3 days from an overseas vendor and it runs great.  We really nee…"

"Just got notification today that Sydney RPAs is a go!  Our resubmit was sufficient to allow us to progress.  Lots to do between now and the next deadline.

"Sydney RPAs (my team) is a 'improve and resubmit', our state diagrams where not up to scratch.  Should be something we can fix tonight / tomorrow and fingers crossed we'll be in."

"Thanks Philip
For the benefit of others it does appear to be fixed using a manual update of a file and also appears that 3DR will be up fixing it in a future update too.
Good work by others and 3DR."

"Hi,
Does anyone have any idea when the Solo SDK will be updated to allow custom camera controls?  The Solo SDK page has said it is on the way for some time.  Surely it cant be that hard to get the gimbal and camera control to honor the DO_DIGICAM_CO…"

"Hi JB,
Thanks, just only made it.
V4 rules have just retrieval a/c for vid, our doco has both A/C in it.  I just reread the email.  Hmmm interesting.  Have to wait and see what they say then.....

"Ours went in just past the 5pm deadline - we'll take the points hit as we are in this for the challenge.  Was doing a video edit right on the deadline (last video was taken at 4pm today, talk about cutting it fine).  Would have been fine if we hadnt…"

"Hi @Mirko,

I have tested both a Orange R615X and R815X on the BBBMini, my first board I had the resisters in for the 5V signal. I can confirm that it receives the SBUS signal in this config.  The bars move for each of the channels in the Radio Cali…"

"Hi,

I have both, scope was on the r815x. Its a home diy scope, it may need some calibration (although the test circuit is reading correct voltage), it was just under 1.8v. Away on holidays will know for sure if it works on Saturday.

Regards,
Chris"

"@Mirko,
Thanks for creating the BBBMini, I've got mine up and running.  Now it's time to experiment with stuff.
Receiver seems to be less than 3.3V for the signal according to my scope.....

Regards,
Chris"

Odd it reported it couldn't locate the rt kernel images and the pru-cgt-installer, no issues with the other items..... apt-cache search also didn't find them. I'll try the new image (I set it to download while I slept) tonight when I get hom…"

"@Mirko
Ah, so the image has been updated too (I should have noticed), I was using one from a week or so back, that explains it.  I got confused which sd card I was using and overwrote the previous weeks work.  Since I'm starting from scratch again I…"

"Hi,
Next question, do I need to add an additional repos for the latest BBBMini README.md?
Just that on step 11, apt-get cant seem to locate the RT kernel....
Also on step 13 it cant locate ti-pru-cgt-installer
Are you able to advise which repo's I s…"
