Active swithes via UART commands.

Module typically used in competitions to drop items like paint-balls. An arduino is a typical target.

Example for airframe file

Add to your firmware section:

1 <module name="switch_uart"/>

  • periodic_switch_uart()
    • Period in seconds: 0.05
    • Autorun: TRUE
      Periodic function automatically starts after init.
