Hi all (and happy Easter!)
I just tagged version 5.4 of the controller firmware for the SP140.
The detailed release notes are in the Github link but I wanted to highlight a couple changes and open the release up to feedback before updating the config tool with the latest downloads:
The throttle sensitivity has been tweaked a bit, especially in “chill” mode. Its now much more similar to a 2-stroke gasoline engine that many pilots are used to. Because of this I also bumped up the max throttle in chill mode. The max throttle range is especially useful for that last minute go-around when your battery voltage is low and you need the extra power.
The new build process is up and running and has been working out great. Beyond building for each version of the OpenPPG, we also have it saving the .uf2 file so anyone can test the latest firmware with a drag and drop and we automatically check for code styling warnings (aka linting). (example of latest run)
We’re looking for feedback on the new firmware. @Pdwhite have been flying with it lately but we’d love to have a few more pilots try it out. Link to the flashable SP140 firmware file.
I’ll update the config tool with the new link as well in the near future.
Thanks and stay tuned for more controller updates here!
