Well, here in Germany the Turkish community calls that flat bread 'Pide' and I, being married to a Turk, have access to bakeries that make genuine ones - no need to order clones from China.

To get the µ character on my windows keyboard I need to use Alt 230 with the numbers on the numeric keypad. It won't work here on freerails so I type µ in notepad and copy it

see  https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/6008-alt-key-codes-special-characters-list.html

I have never heard of AltGr but there is another key marked Alt on my laptop on the RH side of the space bar which when pressed and held down and at the same time pressing 486 on the RH number pad you get the µ symbol. In short, the RH Alt + 486.
Other symbols are available by pressing the RH Alt button +
0425 = ©
0444 = ¼
5287 = º
There is a glossary of terms at my website.   Scroll down to  =  Glossary

@Tony
As I wrote before, it's all about Yanks' (ANSI) and the remainder of the world's (ISO ) keyboard layouts.
See the difference.

@Rob V
Can you just load up again that picture of the tiny receiver capable of PPM and iBus?. Couldn't find it so far. I'd like to play around with that one, too.

Hi Guys :wave:



A nice lil' bit of kit ... the ol' 'FlySky' FS-2A ! :thumb:

Pleased that you looked it up & found it OK Rob, they can be had on eBay for £4.99p inc. P&P not bad ! :)



I decided to have a go at using one of these lil' Receivers a while back, when I ran into a spot of space trouble. :f:





I measured under the hood of my 'Model-Power' Plymouth & worked out what sizes I could use, Including the BIGGEST battery.

So far so good.

But then, I decided to buy a 'proper' 1:35 scale Plymouth resin-kit.





Oh dear ... My carefully sized parts, now had 3mm thick resin & not 1mm styrene to fit inside now. :shocked:

With the extra thickness ... No dice ! :f:



So I looked for a smaller Receiver than the 3-channel which I had & found the Mini FS-2A.

Also at the same time, I got a slightly 'thinner' E.S.C. Electronic Speed Controller as well.

Sometimes even 1mm or 2mm can make or break the ability to fit the stuff in.





This one is a bit thinner, but a bit longer than the other 'red-board' one I have.

The capacitor sticking out of the end, isn't really needed & can be cut orf.



At the same time I also started work on a tender for my 1:35n2 Porter conversion.

I had thought the R.C. bits would have to be 'stacked' in there.





But with BOTH the thinner E.S.C. & the new 'FlySky' FS-2A, the electronics could lay side-by-side on the tender floor.



All going   s   l   o   w   l   y   :slow:   of course ...

... I tend to prefer building models, rather than messing with microchips ...

... but the 2 different things of course will need to both work together in the final model.



The 'FlySky' FS-2A is a CONSIDERABLE size saving over the 3-channel I have. :cool:

It also has the possible 'advantage' of taking 10 Volts ...

... so it could be used with a 'simpler' E.S.C. without a built-in B.E.C. Battery Elimination Circuit.

It also has a 'Bind-Button', which I had considered adding to my 3-channel as an extra.



Just some R.C. ramblings really   .   .   .   ;)



:!:



Si.

"...Bob just threw in a "PIC uC" without the µ maybe he has a MAC as well..."

Nope, boB is just lazy and usually doesn't bother to do the "alt + xxx" thing.   ;)

uC content: I am working on a Mars light with 5 LEDs in a "X" pattern and a PIC to control the pattern and make it all look realistic.

It is indeed a very compact Receiver, which is a great advantage in any use.



The back is mainly empty of components also.



The pad layout for the 0.1" pitch multiway connector takes up space, but the plugable board makes a lot of sense.


Cheers.

Rob.
