Shortcut button for Bind

Shortcut button for Bind was created by phantom8
IMO, the Bind function is one of the most used one when switching models. Is there a way to have a shortcut button to activate it. I know that we can use long press button to call certain menus (setup via Main page config), but is it possible to call the Bind function instead?

Which protocols are you using that require binding to switch models. Most of them only require binding when you initially connect the model, and then will connect without binding in the future. If this isn't the behavior you're seeing, there's probably a bug somewhere.

I agree bind button normlly use it only once when setting up the model, better keep it deep in the menu, so not accidentally erase the bind etc.

Almost all toy quads will require rebinding when inserting new batteries. Some protocols automatic rebind when switching models, some don't.

If the bind button shortcut is implemented the same way as shortcut menus, there is no chance of accidentally rebind, 'cos you'll have to set it up via Main page config before you can even use it.

I have several "toy grade" quads that need to bind every time however they all do it automatically at power up, I switch to the model file, turn off then power back up. This also resets the timer between battery changes...

Looks like not many needed this feature. Well, I'll try to implement it and see how it turns out.

Just added a BIND shortcut which can be mapped via Main page config. Have successfully tested under Devo7e. If anyone is interested, let me know & I'll upload it.

I would recommend posting the code or submitting a pull-request. I'm not saying I would actually accept such a thing (can't say without looking at it), but making to code available would be valuable for the future. Past experience shows it is unlikely you will want to maintain this patch going forward as we continue to make new Deviation releases.

Don't hesitate to post your code for review phantom8. Merging this (if accepted) would be a great addition for toy quads and planes to (the F939 rx needs to be bound each time), actually I use the model setup shortcut, but if we could reach the bind button directly, it would be nice.

While I don't buy a lot of toy grade quads, my experience is just the opposite. Only the very old one - my first gen V911 - require binding every time you change the battery. I've seen reports that newer V911's don't need that, and I know my V959 - almost as old as the V911 - didn't, and the V323 doesn't. Neither does either version of the Proto X (though the SLT is unflyable with deviation).

And as noted, several deviation protocols have a "automatically bind on power up" feature that is close to what you want.

The real issue as far as I'm concerned is space on the 7E. It's already missing features, and the new toggle code hasn't been merged because it doesn't fit on the 7E. I've also had to switch back to GCC 4.8 from 4.9 because the current build using 4.9 doesn't fit on the 7E. So I worry about adding small features.

Sure, but (a) as I've saidI don't want the 7e's limitations to limit Deviation's progress. at some point in the near future we'll need to address that, and (b) having the code available gives more options than not having it available. So again, I recommend posting it either as a patch or pull-request.

I've never done a pull request. I'll take a look & see how it's done. If it's too complicated, I may just post a diff on the source code.

Added a pull request for bind-shortcut. The changes only apply to 7e/10. Don't know how other transmitter works.

Is there any info if this has been merged into deviationtx? Can't find the corresponding pull request...

This PR was done on bitbucket, and was rejected before 5.0 was released. You'll probably have to look at bitbucket to find that discussion.

Thanks, just found it on bitbucket.

To bad it was rejected, would have been a nice thing for our small H8 quads with Bayang protocol.
Like that i have to reboot the Devo on each battery change on the quad or run trough the menus.

I think it is much easier to reboot the DEVO, I do it all the time.
It clears the timers too...
