Re: How to install and configure Trainer over Bluetooth..

If you or Mike need a new set of sticks or a display, I have spares.
Maybe even an original 9x mainboard.
I owe you guys for all your help.

Re: Orange Module running MULTI protocol

I'll ohm out my board and see if the tiny GRN pad actually goes anywhere? I just haven't found a mini schematic showing a GRN reference on it yet? It would seem that if I had a ftdi programmer it would use the DTR pin because it's an actual pad with a hole in it. Tutorials usually show the ftdi pins...

Re: Orange Module running MULTI protocol

Re: S.Port output on a Q X7 radio?

Really good answer Mike! If I have time or a reason, I'll try both TX's to verify it. We discussed these two options earlier and I was good on using the module bay pins as I would on a Taranis or Plus being my first version Qx7 was missing the lower pins. It was reading about this on other (so many)...

Re: S.Port output on a Q X7 radio?

Reports say the latest opentx has eliminated the use of the module bay pins? There was talk early on of being able to add the pins if they were missing. From reports, it involves some board control parts that complicate that simple mod? I agree that if the pins are there use them, pretty self explan...

I see the digital and silkscreen pad numbers now on this mini board picture.
Pins/pads 2 and 3 would seem to be on the left side below the ground pad.

Re: Orange Module running MULTI protocol

I'll wait for Mikes reply but your answer makes one important fact, to kiss I'll probably add a pro mini to my collection. It's not the cost, it's adding to my stored collection of devices.
Thanks for the reply.

I'm reading elsewhere that with the latest Qx7 and otx fw, the module bay flashing method may not work. I just haven't had time or actually needed to flash anything to test the port options.

Is it possible you flashed the wrong model/version tx fw into it?
Pretty difficult to brick the wx7, but wrong fw will make it stupid.

S.Port output on a Q X7 radio?

The bottom port does have its own power switch, controlled by a separate output from the processor. Note that early X7s don't have any pins on the bottom port as they don't have the power switch, and the pinout on the board is incorrect. I'm looking at how the correct pins, with a power switch, mig...

Followup I replaced the original pwm charger with a different 30A one, still $15 range from BG. It's working much better so I must have damaged the first one by bench testing it as well as applying a non solar source voltage first before a battery. These mistakes seem to be bad! I did go ahead and u...
