Re: Intermittent speaker malfunctions

The wire is wrapped around the cone. Where it’s soldered to the speaker wire terminals I should have said. Using a ohm meter on the speaker and gently pushing the cone to move it could show up a broken wire. I agree that the speaker would be the last place to look but it happens. Sent from my iPhone...

Re: Intermittent speaker malfunctions

Freeze spray on the speaker or driver ic would track it down?
Speaker substitution is the first simplest option.

Re: taranis wont turn on

The mainboard has all the smarts on it for power generation/regulation as well as the magic switch circuit. The back board doesn’t. The switchboard has the charger circuit on it and the power switch but I’m guessing not too much to cause this issue. A new mainboard would be my guess. Sent from my iP...

Re: Module problem

Excellent! I knew something was changed from what one would consider Stock. That’s why the battery question popped into my head. Strange on why this caused the Taranis to act that way however? I need to check, but I thought main battery voltage was passed thru to the module vcc pin via the mcu and m...

Re: FrSky S6R low RSSI

Ok, but remember, using a external Orange tx module with orange Dsm2/x receivers is a totally different transmitter section and protocol.

Re: Module problem

I haven’t seen that happen. I have seen the male module pins push up the female module connector if not soldered flush, this can make for strange or no operation. Pin length of too short may cause issues? What happens if you power up with the modules removed. What version firmware? Have you in the p...

Do you have any other Frsky non S type receivers? I suspect not or you would have mentioned it. The fact that the external module works using its own RF and antenna only verifies that the x9d plus encoder and opentx is working. What does the swr screen show as a value. If you hold the antenna does i...

Re: IRangeX 4in1 Plus fw flashing.

W7 doesn’t have hyperterm anymore so I tried Putty.
The 4in1 shows up as com15 maple serial.
Setting putty as serial com15, it would not connect or leave the config page.
I tried several baud rates 9600 115200.

Re: SBUS Trainer input

Bummer! I planed on buying a x10 or x10S as soon as Frsky settles down on the release tweaking. So if the Bt wireless trainer is truly a bust, and there still is a trainer and module port, then back to a Linker and cppm receiver setup like this? https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180202/cd66c34d6112...

if soldered in, will R1 allow the pin to be used like it is on the X9D/+ and X7? I'm assuming the plan is to use only the Bluetooth wireless trainer in the X10-X12, but report seem to indicate it's not reliable? Yes pin 2 does work on my non S X7, can't say for the X7S?
