Revolution Configuration

When the Revolution flight controller is plugged into the GCS, the Hardware Configuration screen displays the ports available on the controller to allow them to be set according to use. The board can be mounted in any configuration on the airframe, and the orientation relative to the airframe configured such that the flight controller knows which way it is facing.
