I’ve used the term “Vintage” as it seems anything older than six months in the drone world is considered Boomer territory.
I’m curious to know if anyone else has flashed a modern firmware build onto an old flight controller and what was the result, both good and bad.
I took delivery of another TBS Gemini yesterday. Originally the Gemini ran on Tau Labs, a fork of OpenPilot I believe, in fact my original Gemini has run on nothing else. This recent addition is running on Cleanflight and reading through the FPVlab thread on this subject the consensus of opinion is that CF, along with a reflash of the ESC’s to a newer FW, completely transformed the Gemini for the better. Along with this second Gemini were a mountain of spares including a custom Colibri flight controller. I have managed to flash BF 4.2 to it and upload a custom parameter file to reflect the Hex configuration and motor assignments. But before I transplant it into one of my working Gemini’s are there any recommendations before I spin the props and unleash the madness?
