NotFastEnuf E011 / Bwhoop Silverware Fork


#1348

It seems to be flying much better with props in. Thanks


#1349

From a post on rcgroups, 527FPV has changed the compiler to ARM in his macOS tools for silverware here:https://simonernst.com/silverware/


#1350

can anyone chime in on this?! apparently this Betaflight rates modification is from a Youtube tutorial :exploding_head:


#1351

It work great , but nfe has a better feeling .


#1352

Yeah I’m not a fan of betaflight superrates. So I never included this code modification in my project. I go the other way and try to make betaflight feel more like silverware instead of the other way around. :smile:


#1353

FairEnuf, so I’m guessing that this is from an unknown fork somewhere as I’m yet to find a source. anyway thanks for the chime in guys (tarkux /NFE) and are there any updates coming soon to look forward to? :partying_face:

Find it here https://github.com/NotFastEnuf/NFE_Silverware/pull/5

Well it wast a totally unknown fork, the original author of bf rates was a well respected member of the silverware community. I just can’t recall who cause it wasn’t of much interest to me.

As for what’s new to come … yes I am hard at work on quite a few things… close to a total overhaul in fact. I really need a dev team. There is now quite a lot of attention on silverware which is great … but with that attention have come a lot of new initiatives and a lot of new projects. Unfortunately no one is really working together as a team to bring it all together in one place yet. Some of these pushes forward are financially motivated by companies that want a ride on the zero hypetrain, and others are community projects. It will be interesting to see if silverware becomes fractured into “fudal tribes” or if we organize ourselves towards a united future. There are currently at least 5 companies and tge community itself working on new silverware boards most of them with new features. Some have requested my help, some have not communicated at all, some have changed nothing. None have published any code or offered to unite on a development team and share resources or combine efforts while many have just asked for straight up help to meet their own goals. Sigh. NFE stands alone.

However I am hopeful for the future. Regardless of where advancements come from or if they are accomplished as a united team or as individual projects (financially or otherwise motivated) - anything that pushes the experience forward will be adopted in my project with my own personal spin as I have always done.

Right now what quads are sure to can be flashed?


#1357

Have a look at this page on the silverware wiki: http://sirdomsen.diskstation.me/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=openmicro

These BNF whoops work best at the moment:

  • Beta65S Lite
  • E011C “Santa Whoop”
  • BWhoop B03 Pro

#1358

Thanks man! I didn’t know you could do that in opentx - works perfect now!
(Took me a while to take another step at my silverware whoop but as its winter now I got some time :D)


#1359

Happy that I could help!


#1360

Hi

I was trying to get BLE, and finally I had to change radio protocol:

//#define RX_BAYANG_PROTOCOL_BLE_BEACON
#define RX_BAYANG_BLE_APP

Compilation throws one warning:
src\rx_bayang_ble_app.c(1206): warning: #68-D: integer conversion resulted in a change of sign
if (temp>1000 && (temp-(PACKET_OFFSET) )/((int) PACKET_PERIOD) >= (skipchannel+1) )

But now SilverVISE connects.


#1361

Interesting, I stumbled across what might be an XN297LBW module:

#1362

Nice find. I wouldn’t mind ordering a couple if I could understand it. I’m sure they’ll find their way onto the Chinese selling sites


#1363

I’m trying to understand the firmware and documenting it in the process:
https://github.com/txemavs/NFE_Silverware/releases/download/dox/nfe_silverware_docs_2.zip

Thoughts?


#1364

Sorry I have not had a chance to read it over… but I will ASAP when in front of a pc instead of on mobile.


#1365

Well guys it’s been a long time since I have been here with some fun new stuff to test, but believe me I have been at it. I really need to put together a second github for some beta testing … I don’t really want to muddy the waters on the main fork since there are a few commercial products now running this firmware. Those of you who remember this project’s roots will recall I used to just post projects to my Google drive. Lolz… so for now it’s back to old school. I am working on a total overhaul that will likely become a whole new firmware … but a lot of what I want to do there will need to be tested on a known good platform. So I am back porting some stuff into our tried and true NFE_Silverware.

LET THE BETA TESTING BEGIN!!! … here is round one. Dual pass adjustable gyro filters. Its all explained in the comments. Ask any questions that you have. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1WOYsINNENfoTmgDvSLoe5sFcJ1M9MFoy If you are flying a Boss 7 - there are notes in pid.c for exactly what I change so that you can just tweak this project. Good luck and thank you!!

Edit: for boss 7 I have dropped my roll and pitch P to 21.5, and changed my D filter cut to 120hz


#1366

Just posted in RCGROUPS, but will say again it’s good too see you back and see what you’re cooking up.

May I ask what files you’ve been messing with as I’d like to get a beta test version for Brushless going? Sixaxis.h, filters.cpp, any else? As it’s not a commit, a bit difficult to see what you’ve tinkering with :slight_smile:


#1367

Yeah changes to the two filter calls in sixaxis.c, changes to filter.cpp, changes to the filter define names in config, and changes to the defines.h filter table.
