F3F setup v.4.0 with quicker config

Version 4.0 of F3F setup for Taranis is now available. Enhancements are aimed at getting your 6-servo F3F ship into the air as quickly as possible. So if you want the mixing without the fiddling, this is the version for you!

[Update 20 October 2016: version 4.1 is imminent, featuring a new Pump mode.]

Using OpenTx to help manage LiFe rx batteries

Eneloops are well-proven and reliable power sources, and until now I've used them exclusively on all my F3F models. However, my Needle 115 is equipped with high voltage servos, and it made sense to go for a 2S LiPo or LiFe. After some thought, I settled on a Vapex 1600 LiFe pack, as it was easiest to fit. LiFe's are also less prone to catch fire.

The Horus has landed

The long awaited FrSky Horus is finally on sale, and it appears that the production version incorporates some improvements over the prototype, one of which I've had for some months for beta testing.
