Description

Support for the modern S.Port communication. Newer Tx (ie. Taranis) have an internal pass-through serial port. Several projects can now convert MavLink to FrSky or S.Port protocol.

Here is one such project: http://diydrones.com/forum/topics/amp-to-frsky-x8r-sport-converter

Implementation would help to eliminate the need for extra radios and HW, and free up a redundant frequency.

Yes, this is very much on my to-do list. I have signed the NDA, and have the full specs for S.PORT.
I believe only the 2.xx series firmware of the Taranis support the serial passthrough though. Also the XJT has a built in serial, though I don't know that outputs using S.PORT protocol.

Sadly what I lack is time:(
If I manage to find time to work on the app again, this will be the priority item.
