v1.0.0.5

7 Sept 2020
First Customer Release

– Release to production, 7 Sept 2020

v1.0.0.6

6 Oct 2020
Minor Release

– Add idle frames to SRXL-2 protocol to avoid failsafe after 50ms of missing packets
– Add Rx GHST protocol, ready for integration into Betaflight
– Reduce Ghost Tx boot time to <100ms (power on to packets transmitted)

v1.0.0.7

1 Nov 2020
Minor Release affecting long range, and GPS rescue flights, but not racing

– Fix issue in Normal RF mode, when the link is lost for several seconds, and the Ghost system didn’t reconnect when the Tx came back into range (or Tx was turned back on).
Recovery time from Tx off is now < 250ms in Race and Pure Race modes, < 500ms in Normal mode.

v1.0.0.8

5 Nov 2020
Recommended release for anyone using SRXL-2 as an Rx Protocol, especially for longer range flights

– Second attempt to work around the 50ms failsafe in the Betaflight/iNav SRXL-2 driver (this time successfully)
– Cosmetic change on the Tx side to hide LQ/RSSI channels from protocols that pass them directly (not requiring a channel)

v1.0.1.2

1 Dec 2020
Stable Release
Recommended if telemetry or OpenTx Tools Menu required

New Features/Improvements:
– Add support for a remote user-interface using an OpenTx Tools menu
– Add support for the new Atto Duo receiver
– Add support for Betaflight telemetry for Battery packets (Volts, Amps, mAh consumed)
– Add Support for Betaflight LQ, RSSI (dBm), and RSSI(%) without using aux channels (LQ in % on OSD with range 0-100%)
– Implemented X-Lite module User Interface
– Cleaned up OLED display, added up/down carats to show more pages, smaller fonts for channels page
– Rework vTx control menu to make more consistent
– Add Tramp vTx version in the telemetry pages

Bug Fixes:
– Fixed occasional (rare) blank OLED when binding, or updating
– Update latency calculations to reflect the actual FC packet duration (including the much shorter GHST packets)

Betaflight v4.3 Daily Build recommended for telemetry support
OpenTx ImmersionRC Branch binaries required for Ghost Tools Menu

v1.0.2.0

Stable Release
Minor compatibility break, Receivers running pre-v1.0.2.0 firmware need updating to remain compatible.
Highly recommended for Atto Duo users.

New Features/Improvements:
– Improve connection success with high power Tx close to the Rx
– Decrease connection time when an RF mode search is required
– Switch GHST protocol RSSI value to a lightly averaged value, instead of instantaneous
– Initial support for team racing, Rx ID selection
– Add ability to lock the joystick
– Add support for the Atto Duo receiver

Bug Fixes:
– Fix PWM issue with CH2 by disabling Tramp control in PWM mode
– Fix issue with vTx power settings if set from the popup menu instead of the dedicated vTx setup page
– Fix rare issue where the Rx connection is not stable if Rx is not restarted after bind
– Fix issues with SBus (Normal + Inverted) on PWM adapters without pullups/pulldowns.

Betaflight v4.3 Daily Build recommended for telemetry support
OpenTx ImmersionRC Branch binaries required for Ghost Tools Menu

v1.0.2.1/v1.0.2.5 (Hybrid)

Beta Release
Receivers running v1.0.2.0 fully compatible
Required for ‘Lite’ Tx, and Orqa Integration
Required for Hybrid

New Features/Improvements:
– Add support for the ‘Lite’ Tx
– Add the first phase of goggle integration with Orqa FPV.Connect
– Add support for the Hybrid Rx/Tx

Betaflight v4.3 Daily Build recommended for telemetry support
OpenTx ImmersionRC Branch binaries required for Ghost Tools Menu
Use Ghost Updater v1.5 or later if using the hybrid

v1.0.2.1/v1.0.2.6 (Hybrid)

Upcoming Beta Release
Hybrid-only release

New Features/Improvements:
– Massive decrease in vTx on/off performance for the Hybrid

Betaflight v4.3 Daily Build recommended for telemetry support
OpenTx ImmersionRC Branch binaries required for Ghost Tools Menu
Use Ghost Updater v1.5 or later if using the hybrid

v1.0.4.0 

Upcoming Major Release
All Ghost products

New Features/Improvements:

– Add CloneID support to allow a second transmitter to share the ID of the master
– Switch to 12 bit data for the primary flight channels (will require an OpenTx change to fully take advantage of this)
– Bump PureRace to 300Hz, LoRa
– Add a new mode, developed with XBlades, Solid250, for stupid-high LQ for racing
– Massive improvement in vTx on/off performance for all Tramp integrations
– Massive decrease in Rx UART inter-packet jitter (now < 10us standard deviation)
– Added GPS telemetry
– Added POLITE mode to reduce RF pollution for larger FPV events
– Add vTx temperature monitoring to telemetry stream
– Fix telemetry lost (and link reset) when backing out of OLED menus just after binding
– Fix menu navigation minor issue when backing out of sub-menu, previous menu page now preserved
– Dramatically reduce startup time for all modes (but especially Race250/Race500) when previously used RF mode still selected
– Greatly improved compatibility issues between some modules and receivers.
– Improved bind-time calibration for the Atto Duo (lower packet loss)
– Speed up OTA firmware update when Polite mode enabled
– Removed ‘mode’ from the vTx menus to streamline the UI
– Slightly increase bind-mode power to speed up binding during RF-polluted race events
– Greatly improved PWM mode failsafe. No default failsafe now before first set.
– Cleaned up PWM mode servo startup (had a few 100ms of invalid data that caused servo twitching)
– Restrict available vTx channels to legally available options according to the selected region

Use Ghost Updater v1.6 or later to update
Re-bind at least once after update to take advantage of all enhancements

v1.0.4.2 

Minor Release
All Ghost products

Bug Fixes:

– RGB LED for the vTx on the Hybrid now works correctly
– Rare ‘ticks’ due to invalid control data on SRXL-2, and GHST resolved
– Increased vTx-off timeout in high speed modes (doesn’t change failsafe behavior at all)

New Features/Improvements
– Add support for the next generation of Hybrids

Use Ghost Updater v1.6 or later to update
Re-bind at least once after update to take advantage of all enhancements
