DSM Telemetry support

DSM Telemetry support was created by PhracturedBlue
I've checked in telemetry support for DSM2/DSMX. I don't have any sensors other than the ones that came with my TM1100, so I have only verified 2 voltage and one temperature reading.
Currently telemetry will only work with <= 7 channels. This is a known issue, though I am not yet sure I can actually fix it.
I had to tweak the DSM timing a little to make this work, and DSM receivers are extremely sensitive to timing, so if you see any binding/reception issues with or without telemetry, let me know.

If you have access to additional sensors for the DSM telemetry module, let me know and I can put together a test build to try to capture additional data.

Telemetry disabled. With telemetry enabled all is the same.

AR6010, AR8000, JR RD921(DSM2 only):
1) 6/7 channel mode, DSM2 or DSMX = OK, all work fine.

AR8000, JR RD921(DSM2 only):
1) 8/9 channel mode, DSM2 or DSMX = None, do not bind, do not work.

I had reboot once, when I changed Telemetry = On/Off.

AR8000 + TM1000, DSM2, 6/7 channel mode, telemetry enabled (On).
1) Temp1 = 123C ??? (temperature sensor not connected),
Temp1 = 25C (temperature sensor connected),
Temp2, Temp3 and Temp4 = "---".
2) Volt1 = 3.8V (external voltage 3.8V),
Volt2 = 0.0V,
Volt3 = 7.6V (receiver battery voltage).
3) RPM1, RPM2 = 0 (I haven't PRM sensor).

AR8000 + TM1000, DSMX, 6/7 channel mode, telemetry enabled (On).
1) TM1000 doesn't bind.
2) AR8000 works fine.

I had reboots when after binding with telemetry="On" I tried change DSMX to DSM2.

the reboot is likely due to a race condition in changing the telemetry bit.I committed a fix for that. I also committed a fix to re-enable 8/9 ch mode (still no telemetry though). I haven't been able to test my latest changes yet, but will do so sometime today.

It didn't help with binding at 8/9 channel mode:

AR8000, JR RD921(DSM2 only):
1) 8/9 channel mode, DSM2 or DSMX = None, do not bind, do not work.

If I right understand info from RW9UAO, telemetry packet transmitted every 11ms, after channels packet on second DSM channel, even in case 7 channels at DSM2 protocol. I don't see that at code.

For example:
DSM2_CH1_WRITE_A,
DSM2_CH1_CHECK_A,
DSM2_CH2_WRITE_A,
DSM2_CH2_CHECK_A,
DSM2_CH1_READ_A,
DSM2_CH1_WRITE_B,
DSM2_CH1_CHECK_B,
DSM2_CH2_WRITE_B,
DSM2_CH2_CHECK_B,
DSM2_CH1_READ_B.

"TM1000 Telemetry Module
Channels packets are A and B. Telemetry packet transmitted after packet B.
Received packet A, 4ms interval, received packet B, 1.8ms interval, transmission of the first telemetry packet, 4ms interval, received packet A, 4ms interval, received packet B, 1.8ms interval, transmission of the second telemetry packet."

yes, i specifically didn't implement it that way. I don't seem to have enough time to read to packets per frame with a single transceiver. I wonder if spektrum has a 2nd cyrf-chip for telemetry reception

and now 8/9 ch mode (without telemetry) should work. Verified on my Orange 9Ch

I reworked the state-machine again. Now it does read both frames of telemetry and it does work with >= 8 channels. However, for unknown reasons only every other telemetry packet is received correctly. I have no idea why that is, but I never get the expected 'end of packet' bit on every other read.

of course, it needs testing to see what else I broke.

Maybe telemetry alternate the channels CH1 and CH2?

or

If we will transmit data at one channel only, what will be to change with every next packet?

AR8000 and JR RD921 (DSM2 only) with telemetry "Off":
1) 6/7 channel mode, DSM2 = OK,
2) 8/9 channel mode, DSM2 = OK,
3) 6/7 channel mode, DSMX = OK,
4) 8/9 channel mode, DSMX = OK.

AR8000 and TM1000 with telemetry "On":
1) 6/7 channel mode, DSM2 = OK, telemetry = OK,
2) 8/9 channel mode, DSM2 = OK, TM1000 not always bind (50/50),
3) DSMX protocol, TM1000 do not bind.

Something wrong with DSMX protocol and telemetry.

PB, I see that Spektrum SD log file format is very close to telemetry packets structure (if cut first 4 bytes = timestamp). Can you check it?

Thanks. That does look like the same data, butthe0xff packet doesn't make any sense.
with 3 sticks centered and one all the way down, I get packets like this:

ff 00 e1 ec f8 0f f0 dc f8 c3 a7 cd 00 be 01 e7
ff 00 c9 e1 ec f8 0f f0 dc f8 66 a7 00 ce 01 e7
ff 00 e1 ec f8 8f f0 dc f8 c3 66 a7 00 ce 01 e7
ff 00 cd e1 ec f8 8f f0 dc f8 62 a7 00 ce 01 e7
ff 00 26 e1 ec f8 0f f0 dc f8 a3 c9 00 be 01 e7
ff 00 e1 ec f8 8f f0 dc f8 c3 a3 c9 00 be 01 e7
ff 00 c9 f8 e1 ec f8 8f f0 dc 66 a7 00 ce 01 e7

I don't know how to reconcile that with the format you posted.
I think the frame-loss and hold info would be useful to process, but it makes no sense from the data I captured.

At DX8 "Spektrum.tlm" I have after 5 Tx swith off:
7F 00 00 E1 FF FF 00 E1 FF FF 00 00 00 05 02 EB

and temp = 24C
7E 00 FF FF 00 00 00 4C 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

Is TM1100 connected to BIND/DATA port of receiver?

Yes, but the captures above were done with an Orange RX. When I tried it with he AR6210, I can see the 'hold' count increase when I toggle the Tx, and the 'frame loss' increase if I wrap the Rx in foil.
