./conf/airframes/CDW/chimu_tinyfw_spi.xml ? This one has
ultra-fast servo updates (120Hz) with awesome
performance on digital servo's but can burn and will
jitter any old analog servo?

(8MHz crystal) which has significant "digital noise" due
to the interrupt routine that needs to measure 8
channels so whenever 2 pulses are of almost the same
length one will be read with a (small) but noticable
> A last one we saw quite often: when too many (1 or
2) small and fast servo's are powered by the tiny/twog
then it drains too much current from the 2Amp switching
supply. This also makes servo's jitter and is very
dangerous to fly with. Power the 5V of your servo's from
the BEC/ESC instead.

useful to debug. How constant are the given pulses? What
is the update rate?

Anyone has had similar problems? Any inputs are
