Enjoy the new V4.20 Transmitter Firmware update with LUA Programing Enabled for the DS/DC-16 transmitters.

What is LUA? Lua is a powerful, fast, lightweight, embeddable scripting language. LUA combines simple procedural syntax with powerful data description constructs based on associative arrays and extensible semantics. LUA is dynamically typed, runs by interpreting bytecode for a register-based virtual machine, and has automatic memory management with incremental garbage collection, making it ideal for configuration, scripting, and rapid prototyping.

How do you use it? Basic setup is easy. You write an application (script) and put that to SD-card. After that the application is run in your selected model. This means you can have different scripts running on different models.

For example you can have constantly updating telemetry-data, make and use graphics and images, use telemetry and voice in a new fashion, you can access SD-card with LUA and so on. This ability has opened up a whole new world to making your transmitter and its functions really “Your Own”.

Warning: After updating your radio to version 4.20 it is no longer possible to downgrade to an older firmware. Downgrade to 3.02 version is however still possible!!!
