    Nick, sounds good!

    I preorder one :-)

  • Hi Thorsten,

    The ESP-01 ( normal one ) works just fine. Btw, we'll design out own ESP module with hardware flow control, based on ESP-06

    Hi Nick and Phillip,

    I just had a look at the ESP8266 modules. There is the normal one and a shielded version which is (potentially) FCC and CE certified. The shielded version does not fit to the PixRacers pins directly but there should be lower interference - or? Are there any other differences so that the shielded version can't be used?

    Thanks and best regards,


  • Hi guys,

    Unfortunately the first regular batch will be delayed because of the cable sets delay. I hope we'll receive the cables around Jan 4-5th. Currently, the boards tests are in progress. Will keep you informed.

    Best regards and Happy New Year !

  • Swift - We should have stock on tomorrow the 28th. We need to perform our internal testing and QC. We expect to begin shipping pre-orders this week.

    Para - There was lots of discussion on this. I need to confirm, but will report back soon.

  • And again, what are FrSky in/out pins for !? SPort ? :)

  • It's running MinimOSD-extra like other MinimOSD hardware.

  • Was thinking about this one


    No idea what software the OSD is running however.

  • Need small OSD? get a Micro MinimOSD or OSDoge and use FrSky telemetry with the X4R-SB or trusty D4R-II receivers

  • The 3rd OSD/Telemetry layer would be a great idea if joined to AlceOSD project.
