Blogs i write are mostly related to OSRC in one way or another, may it be a user manual, tutorial or something interesting for the reader. Since i developed the OSRC system, naturally writing information about it is my main priority. However now and then i do tend to write my own thoughts about other topics, related to technology.

Among many great features, assigning switches, buttons and other input devices to different functions is one of the many reasons for defining OSRC as a Fully Customizable system. Find out how to assign Functions to an input device as well as which functions are available in the latest firmware.

Once inside the Switch Settings, a list of all available switches, buttons and pots will be displayed. This list is directly linked to the options defined in the OSRC Accessories sections. Based on the amount of input devices, the list may be as large as 2 pages and contain not only switches or buttons but also Pots and Sticks.

Each switch, button or pot is marked with the corresponding name, near every location of the input device. For example a switch on the Left Shoulder module can be marked as LS1. To navigate through the list, functions Up, Down, Left and Right are used. To select the appropriate input device, the Select function is used.

Switch Setup

Ui_root_switch_settings.png

Once the appropriate input device is selected, the User Interface will navigate the operator to the corresponding input device settings section. Based on the type of the input device, the settings may vary and are explained below.

Please Note. Changes made within this menu, shall only be activated once the device is turned Off and back On again. This is a safety feature, to prevent unwanted alterations which could result in a system reset by the user. (Imagine if you forget what you need to do and by mistake reset the Back button to another function. That would leave you in the same menu indefinitely)

DefaultS - Default State

The Default State option can be static or be selectable, based on the type of the input device. Below are the available states for each input device:

State NameState Description
On or OffIf the input device is a switch, it shall have an On/Up and Off/Down state. The operator may choose which state he/she is going to configure by selecting the state with the Left or Right function. The settings for each state shall change automatically and will be refreshed for the corresponding selection.
ToggleIf the input device is a button, it shall have only one state, which is On/Up. The operator cannot alter this state and can edit the rest of the options based on this option.
ValueIf the input device is a Pot, a Stick or any other device with a variable value control, it shall have this state. The operator cannot alter this state and can edit the rest of the options based on this option.

Function & Which

Every action within the Main Unit is based on a function, triggered by the internal firmware or the operator. The operator may change the function for each state of the input device from the ones available within the current firmware version.

In total there are over 40 functions to choose from and they shall keep adding up as the OSRC system grows. For practicality reasons some functions are defined as one Function option and from that group, the corresponding function is selected through the Which Option.

For example if the Menu Up function needs to be selected, the function name for it in the User Interface is MenuNav. The Which value for the Menu Up function is 1.

Below are all available function and their respectful descriptions. Each function Group described below, also shows which Function to choose and which Which number.

FPV Channel Related Functions
FunctionWhichFunction NameDescription

Tog-Div - Toggle Divider

If the function Channel Direct is chosen for the selected Input Device and the Input device is a Button or a Switch, you can define into how many equal values should each toggle increment.

For example, a value of 3 divisions would divide the value (starting from the Minimum End Point and finishing with the Maximum End Point) into 6 sections. The way this works is that the system recognizes all values as Positive and Negative. From the Minimum Value to its middle we have a Negative Value. From the middle to the Maximum Value we have a Positive Value.

Based on the above, the Toggle Divider will divide both Negative Values and Positive Values into 3 Sections.

Polarity

Polarity is used to define at which direction will the value be incremented. A Negative polarity shall increment the channel values towards the absolute Minimum channel limit. A Positive polarity shall increment the channel values towards the absolute Maximum channel limit.

Have been working with electronics for as long as i can remember. Always enjoyed making something new and having the pleasure of seeing it work at the end. One of my latest and i must say, greatest creations is OSRC - Open Source Remote Control. Finally i can work on a single project, devote my full attention towards it and improve it as much as possible, with help from the RC and general Open Source community.
