Hi BigT

That's an extremely kind offer indeed  ;)
it was frustrating getting stuck at the last fence as it were; however E.T mentioned that the PPM can be assigned to a different UART and I need to know more about how that's done.

So E.T how do you re-assign the "PPM in" to a different UART ?
I can see in my minds eye that if I was setting up the Rx and viewing the whole process on screen when connected to the laptop that it may stop me viewing Tx stick movements as visual verification...

it leads onto the next question of... is it possible to re-assign other devices to different UARTs
I know I can choose which port the GPS and others listed in the drop down box can be assigned to a port,
the reason I ask is I am getting on well with Bluetooth and EZGUI which I think is amazing  :D but I am sure a time will come when I want to change that to another UART or add a OLED screen

Cheers help and info
Best Regards Ray

 Hi Ray,
           
              This is my port setup for my Mini Talon which is using an EZUHF RX programmed for PPM Mode. If you set your RSSI as Link Quality on a free channel, this kind of works fairly well too. Although on my EZ setup, range even on Low power is never a problem....lol





I seem to recall that Uart1 is not available for your RX in PPM Mode as its already being used, so I think its actually using Uart3
 Anyway, this works as shown if you are using the same F4 board as I am.  My GPS is on Uart6.
I saved this for my own future reference also.

                                                                                               :vulture:

Hi E.T.

I finally got to the root cause  :D
Knowing you have same board and yours worked as per the pic made me back track everything when mine didn't respond to the Rx...
All the lights and equipment did everything as expected and yet still wouldn't show stick movements...
i knew i had highlighted Omnibus F4 and moused down and set the latest stable version! However when i checked the version using CLI to my surprise it said Omnibus F4V3 Grrrrr
i can only think when i went to chose the latest stable version i must have accidentally moved it down to F4V3
it should be easy to set up the GPS etc
Which GPS did you use?

Cheers  Ray

  Hi Ray,
             As usual, it turned out to be something simple...I had a similar dilemma the other day. I bought an F3 FC for a Quad build and when it arrived, printed on the packet was "Omnibus F3"...Inside Betaflight, there is no option for such a board.
 
  Crucial you identify which board you are using because this defines what resources it has onboard...Typically of China, no standards of any kind with nothing printed on the PCB either, which is exactly where it should be of course. Not on a packet it arrived in....ffs.

 I have a thread on the FC section which I did ages ago with links to the M8N GPS receiver I used with your Omnibus F4 V1.

 Pleased it got you sorted anyway....the GPS setup is pretty easy to do.

                                                                                                 :vulture:
