Taranis XD9 Plus on a Walkera Runner..It Flies!!!

Woo hoo!!!  She flew like a charm just as I had hoped.  The previous two blogs walked through how I was able to integrate the Taranis XD9 Plus with the Walkera Runner 250s.  People ask me all the time, “Why should I upgrade my Walkera Runner 250 code to MultiWii 2.4.  These last posts is the perfect reason why they should.  Not because they are tired of seeing their Runners turn into Lawn Darts and be destroyed.  Not because they want to run more than one battery through the Runner before they have to pick up the pieces and go home to order $150 in parts on Amazon.  The reason is because the MultiWii 2.4 is bringing Open Source back to the Runners.  Open source is the way MultiWii was intended to be and as such, you are able to run any flight controller you want to run with the Runners.  Screen Shot 2016-08-16 at 4.33.21 PMSBUS has a significantly lower latency giving you a better repose to the quadcopter, but more importantly it gives you the convenience of taking only one flight controller to the field and multiple quadcopters. Also, I sure like being able to have the full set of features of MultiWii available to me instead of having to make sacrifices because I did not have enough channels for the switches.
