Re: 9X (and possibly 9XR/PRO) Switch Board Design

Looking forward to see the updated version!

In fact, I also had an idea how to improve that. But since your original design works perfectly fine for me, this was a really low-priority item in my to-do list... :)

Re: 9X (and possibly 9XR/PRO) Switch Board Design

I use such a switch with the AR9x board for quite some time already, and it works great! http://www.rccube.ru/image/cache/catalog/products/new_switch_1.4_02-500x500.jpg I didn't try it with a 9Xtreme though.

Re: XJT beeping

Good news! I got my EEPROM chips today! I'll post some pics to illustrate the process (just showing off my new USB "microscope", really... :) ). So, this is the original EEPROM chip we're about to replace: http://rcgear.ru/files/xjt_eeprom_01.jpg A closer look: http://rcgear.ru/files/xjt_eeprom_02.j...

Re: FrSky M9 gimbals in a 9x - photos (traffic!)

Stick reverse setting is in the Setup tab of the Radio Setup in eepskye.
But on the radio itself it's in the Hardware menu.

P.S. Added a few words about stick reverse to the third post!

Re: ERSKY9x Questions

Mike, I just realized Mute feature doesn't work when the radio is switched on with the left horizontal trim held to the left (to enable the Hardware menu). I press and hold the Left trim, Menu and Exit buttons all together, then power the radio on, get a message on the screen "Hardware menu enabled"...

Re: Is it possible to adjust calibration via eepskye?

Late yesterday night I thought it must be related to the mid position being shifted as well! Ok, now it's clear!

Re: Is it possible to adjust calibration via eepskye?

Hmmm... With the stick setup properly (reverse = on, calibrated afterwards), it has a throw from 990 to 2012 (looking at the values in the Limits screen of the model setup). With the reverse = off (but calibration values still intact), it has a throw from 990 to 1962 With the reverse = off and calib...

Re: Is it possible to adjust calibration via eepskye?

Your suggestion involves a change in hardware. In my example, the hardware is NOT touched at all. It's just the software configuration that is changing. That's exactly why my brain tells me it shouldn't be the way it is now.

Re: Is it possible to adjust calibration via eepskye?

I think you are doing at least one thing in the wrong order. In my opinion the correct approach is to check the stick direction first, and then calibrate the sticks. That makes sense. I probably am doing it wrong, but that's somewhat automated in my brain... my intuition tells me to do it this way....

Oh! Another thing that came to my mind... This time for both the ersky9x and eepskye, although I checked it only in ersky9x so far. In fact, it's not even an issue. Just something unexpected that is rarely noticed in a day-to-day use. The first thing I do after I install new gimbals is the calibrati...

Ah, so that's how it works! Thank you, Mike! Now I get it! Yes, Throttle stick is reversed on my radio (I use FrSky M9 gimbals). I adjusted the calibration manually, and the stick now behaves exactly as expected! For the record, my "proper" values in eepskye for the Throttle (Analog 2) channel are: ...

Re: Is it possible to adjust calibration via eepskye?

Well, there are two metal plates on the gimbals. One is for the friction, the other one enables ratchet: http://rcgear.ru/files/frsky_m9_11.jpg So I could easily go back to the "ratchet-less" setup. :) Still, I wonder if there's a way to adjust calibration via eepskye (in case I will want to keep th...

Re: Is it possible to adjust calibration via eepskye?

Pot wire is not a problem. In my case, it's clearly the ratchet, I can feel it. When ratchet was disabled, there were no issues at all. As a side note: with the ratchet engaged, Throttle control becomes "discrete". I feel there are something like 20 to 22 steps only. That's why I'm not sure if it wi...

For the first time in my life I enabled ratchet on the throttle stick. :mrgreen: It feels nice, somewhat unusual. Not yet sure whether I will like it in flight... My issue is that due to the ratchet, the throttle stick doesn't stay in its upper position. It bounces back by a very little - which is, ...

Yes, please share your experience, especially how 9Xtreme will work with the new gimbals. There were questions asked in the past, but I couldn't comment as I don't have a 9Xtreme to test.

Re: XJT beeping

Correct, SWR is not the TSSI.
In my case, the SWR is about 0 and TxRSSI (I believe that's the TSSI) is about 100.
It all looks absolutely normal to me...

the SWR is perfectly Ok. It's about 0 to 1 in normal conditions, rising to 15-16 when I cover the antenna with my hand.

Re: XJT beeping

No luck so far... I borrowed a D8R (just to be sure). It bound to my XJT set to D8 mode by the DIP switches (radio is set to PPM). I can control a servo connected to the receiver. So this part is certainly Ok. But I still cannot get it to talk via RS232. I suspect it could be because of the inversio...
