Hello,

I released a public Beta 2.15
Link: Beta-Version.

Parachute Input

If you want to use a parachute on the MikroKopter, the Motors must stop when the parachute releases.

Now you can connect a switch on the IO1 input of the FC3.0 for emergency-switch-off.

These To make sure this can't happen for users without Parachutes, these criteria must be met:
1. License Feature "Parachute" must be active
2. The IO-Function must be set to 9 = Parachute on the SD-Card

How to check the activated function:

You can see the activated funcion in every logfile:

Input
The input must be a closing contact on IO1 of the FC3.0.
If the input is closed during flight, the motors will stop - let's hope the parachute avoids the crash in that case.

When the contact is closed, you will get an error Message "43: Parachute!" and the HoTT-Transmitter speaks "MikroKopter Off"

You can find the error message in the Logfile like this:

Gute Sache, wie oder wodurch wird der Fallschirm ausgelösst?
Welche Fallschirme sind Kompatibel?

Holger I have request please make the lights flash with any error that might not mk fly correct.

At the moment flashing if there is::

Under voltage
I2C-Error
loss of the receive


The three are great but if you dont see any other signs before flight it could be dangerous

At the moment i am getting compass errors with the new external compass. No flashing lights anywhere all green blue flashing light on the gps (makes the lock noise even) before take-off should be good to fly. Then checked my gpx file and had the compass errors this could of been serious problem if i had return-home. I had no idea it occured until after i checked the log. cheers

@thesmokeshow:
You'll get aly error-messages as text and even as speech on your transmitter.

You'll get the Parachute-Message in the telemetry too.

Holger i realize this but I dont have transmitter with speech so unless i have fpv connected i have no idea whats going on. Just saying if the lights flash this will give a visual indication as well.
