E-flite setups and ALES limiter

It's been a while since I released my E-Soar setup and since then many users from around the world have downloaded the setup. Thanks to all of you who provided feedback.

Migrating setups from Taranis X9D to X9E

The Taranis X9E contains a superset of the X9D's controls, and in theory any setup designed for the X9D will also run on the X9E. In practice, setups which use LS or RS will need modification.
