5th channel for quickdrive characteristic definition?

    Uhm, the value I send (120 decimal IIRC) made it blink, so I have the feeling that 2/<2 is not the only option here. :)

    Hello Kees,

    The 5th channel is indeed the the "LED identification on-off" channel.

    It's usage with quick drive is undocumented, since it's rather convoluted. Use the DRIVE command to turn it off (0) or on (any other value).

    You could use the LED identification function via quick drive by sending a value 2 to turn it off (!) and 3,4, or greater to turn it on.

    Dear SBrick,

    Where can I find the values for the 5th quickdrive channel?

    I note that I can write 5 bytes of data to the quickdrive characteristic. The first four bytes are documented, but the 5th I am not sure. I can see that the brick's LED flashes when I write 0x80 in there. What other meaningful values can I write in there and where are they documented, please?
