Hi Max,

Only thing i could find on the mac is that the images of the pwm ports are not showing correctly.

It only occurs on my laptop that has a retina display. My older mac doesn't have that problem.
I also tried it on a windows machine, and it missed msvcr100.dll in the zip file. It was included in the 1.6.3 folder so i copied it and it worked fine.

Cheers,
Ray

Hi Ray, thanks for testing.

The missing DLL is just embarrassing, sorry about that. I'm uploading a new zip file now... 'been out skiing all day since we finally have some snow.

As for the image size weirdness... I'm not sure where to look for the problem and I don't have a HD display to test with, so that will make it tricky to fix. It's just an image being displayed... so I wonder what the issue is. Do you know if QGC 1.6 has/had the same problem?

Cheers,
-Max

Hi Max:
I´m start testing this. Initial settings works all well. A small question:
I´m trying to use AH in Channel8. I set it in graphic (or in NAV_CTRL_AH = 652552) correctly but it doesn´t work.
For checking my Tx (in case of) I set PassThru = Ch8 and then it works here.

Could you have a look?

Thanks
afernan

Well, it was x-country style this time... "alpine" skiing around here leaves a lot to be desired, and this year it's pretty much nil. Have to be willing to drive 5+ hours to really get anything decent this year. Ho hum.

I'll have to think about what to try for the image problem. Anyone want to lend me a high-density monitor? :)

Cheers,
-Max
