    No problem at all. Using "cut" is often a better option to indicate to a flight controller that failsafe has occurred, since it's less ambiguous and simpler to configure.

    How large a 1S battery for Diversity Nano?

    How large a battery should I consider for the Crossfire Diversity Nano?

    How large a battery is in the normal Crossfire Diversity?

    I'm trying to use serial bridge, not Mavlink. It seems like a failure of the RX <-> TX link, and not bluetooth, but it's of course possible I'm wrong. I was running 2.32/2.33 when I tested.
