Hubless Frsky telemetry with Baseflight on Naze32

It’s been about 2 weeks now since successfully setting up the stm32f103 toolchain on my mac. Darn that was hard. Anyhow, I wanted to play around with telemetry for the Frsky receivers since ER9X supports it. I do have a hub, but one thing that bothered me was that to get the telemetry, we would be buying and installing a bunch of sensors that our main flight controllers already have. With this in mind I set about to seeing how…

ESC reflash with SimonK firmware

I hadn’t gotten around to modifying the internals of my TX so I figured I’d have a go at reflashing the Hobby King 20A (F-20A) ESCs first. I chose this ESC because: They were really cheap They supported reflashing with SimonK’s firmware They had their test pads in a row so it would be easier All it’s FETs were the same (N-Channel) Some wiring had to be done to match the pin-outs from my 10 pin AVR programmer to the…

Installing the Turnigy 9x backlight kit

Here is a walk through on how I installed the Turnigy 9x LED backlight kit from You get a foam backing and the actual backlight panel that has a wiring harness attached to it. As my old soldering iron is fried, and all I have my butane field iron, I am only going to do the plug and play install for now. I don’t really want to use the field iron to solder things to the TX’s logic board…

A2212 Brushless Outrunners

Woo Hoo! I just received another parcel! It’s the motors that I ordered on These are A2212-930KV Brushless Outrunners and they cost me USD38 shipped. I don’t think you can find a better deal elsewhere. If you do, please drop me a note… lolz… They came in one of those bubbled envelopes, and they were wrapped in a lot of bubble wrap. On top of that they were individually packed into pretty rigid plastic so everything was very well…

Power distribution and BT ?>

Power distribution and BT

More stuff has come in. This time from I’ve had good experience with them and I find them much more reliable than GLB, cheaper too. The 2 main things here are the power distribution board and a bluetooth module. The power distribution board costs USD0.86 plus shipping. You can’t really beat that. As you can see, it can handle up to 8 segments. The quality of the board is nice and it had nice big pads to attach your…

The SK450 frame

The first part is finally here! I put in an order for a SK450 frame on When I ordered this, had not started to carry it yet, but now they do so you can get it there. I was lucky and picked it up at for USD26 including shipping so I don’t think I paid much more than buying from (They sell it for USD17 before shipping). It comes packed in a small box that got…
