Dear Sirs,
thank you for your very impressive project. I will definitely do some experiments with that. Before I begin, I would like to make sure that after installing MobiFlight firmware into arduino, I will be able to use it again as a standard Arduino board when I stop working with MobiFlight. I mean, will the board be still available in Arduino IDE, so that I can use it for my own code with other projects? Or will the arduino be forever MobiFlight only board, after once flashing your firmware?

Best regards,

Hello Pavel,

welcome to MobiFlight and I am glad that you are interested in using it.

You can always upload any Arduino Sketch after having used MobiFlight.

In fact, the MobiFlight Firmware is just a pre-compiled sketch and uploaded with the same tool as the Arduino IDE does. It is not a real firmware as for example the bootloader for Arduino. After having uploaded the MobiFlight "firmware" it still is recognized by the Arduino IDE.
Have a great day!
Sebastian
