RX Scoreboard

Info Banner

The RX Scoreboard is a developer / troubleshooting feature that shows the outcome of every receiver packet cycle with a single character. Enable it with -DPRINT_RX_SCOREBOARD when compiling any RX environment and connect to the debug serial UART, usually the same as the CRSF output UART for most environments.

⚠️ For that reason, it should not be enabled during normal RC control operation since it will get mixed in with real CRSF data sent to the FC.

Example 500Hz 1:32 Scoreboard
