F3F setup v.4.0 with quicker config

Version 4.0 of F3F setup for Taranis is now available. Enhancements are aimed at getting your 6-servo F3F ship into the air as quickly as possible. So if you want the mixing without the fiddling, this is the version for you!

[Update 20 October 2016: version 4.1 is imminent, featuring a new Pump mode.]

Using OpenTx to help manage LiFe rx batteries

Until now, I've always used Eneloop NiMH cells for my F3F models, and I've found them to be very reliable. However my new Needle 115 forced a change in habit, as I equipped it with HV servos for which Lithium batteries are better suited.

After some thought, I settled on a Vapex 1600 2S LiFe pack. These cells are less prone to catch fire than LiPo's, and this particular pack fits well in the Needle.

The Horus has landed

The long awaited FrSky Horus is finally on sale, and it appears that the production version incorporates some improvements over the prototype, one of which I've had for some months for beta testing.
