I made nice progress - but not after having some bad experience.

As you may know I decided recently to replace DCM with the solution from Seb.

Sebastian O.H. Madgwick's Filter in action

i played around with the pirate code base and could improve the situation a little bit.

and after a few trials i decided to replace the current dcm implementation by the quaternion solution from sebastian madgwick.

let's start at the begin.
the protocoll should be able to tell what firmware is installed.
from that result you can show the options available for the installed firmware.

the current look and feel is that from a geek - somewhere in the corner and as small as possible.
i would prefer a tabcontrol with pages added dynamically ...
my view - but showing all possibilities is for a beginner not what i would suggest.

the basic ideas are well done - need to organized in a matter which makes sense...

Hi Robert. No, I have not looked in detail at the implementation
