    I see that the firmware has been updated to be compatible with the Graupner receivers using SBUS. Will this work the same way that the Radians work using the Graupner as the primary receiver for single operator and the Spektrum Satellite as the secondary receiver for a two operator system?

    Mike you would have two transmitters, one for the copter and second for the MoVI. Bind an RX to each one. Is this what you were asking?

    Gary,

    Almost. I can currently use my Graupner TX as a single operator for my CS8 and Radian 3 axis gimbal and control the tilt on the gimbal and an RC shutter release. If I install a Graupner RX on the SBUS port in addition to the Spektrum satellite can I do the same with the MoVI?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Don't think that will work. Multiple ports can't be used simultaneously.

    OK, so I just unplug the Spektrum Satellite when flying single operator with the Graupner. When flying in dual operator mode, unplug the Graupner and plug in the Spectrum.

    I plan on flying dual operator most of the time for filming, but single operator for still shots.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    BTW, in the case of the Radians, when the Satellite is active, the Graupner RX automatically becomes inactive.
