To the moderators:
Somehow Rob's thread of yesterday featuring an interesting small-outline FlySky RX with bidirectional capabilities seems to be gone . It's true that it isn't compatible with Rob's intentions, but I think the info should be kept in the RC thread nevertheless - this device offers a possibility to establish two-way comms in RC. Admittedly you have to build your own µC-based controller to use it properly and it may not be suited for the smaller scales right away - but it may be a kick-off for the freaks ( like me ) to play around with it.

µ is easily achieved by depressing the 'AltGr' and 'm' simultaneously.
Oh - just found out that this is on US International ( and other languages ) only- you Yanks ( US English ) have to use the right 'Alt' to hopefully get the same result. A µC is just a microcontroller - definitely not so hot as the professor on that video (Where's the link?)
I connected the power backwards to a PIC uC and it got pretty hot! If we want more than what is offered off-the-shelf for control systems then we should know how to program these devices (or know someone like Helmut, who does). Some of my monorails have 2 or 3 onboard to control speed/direction/lights/sound.
