Re: Mixer Question - With Screenshot?

Thanks Kilrah. That's what I thought too. What about that THR mix? Looks like a bad a attempt at a safety mix but doesn't have a switch assigned?

Mixer Question - With Screenshot?

Would somebody mind having a look at the attached screenshot and let me know what the mixes that have been added to the ELE (CH2) and the THR (CH3) do please?

It's not my set up but trying to figure out what someone else has done here. The model is a 3 Kg warbird.

Thanks in advance.

I did that just before I started testing the new model. But I understand the logic. Thank you.

Re: Weight?

Sort of! 1. If you use some trim, then you will reach the endpoint when moving the stick before the stick gets to the end. 2. If you then copy the trim into the sub-trim (e.g. use instant trim), the trim goes to centre, then the servo movement is then scaled so the whole stick movement is used betw...

Re: Weight?

Sort of! If you think you are likely to need some trim amount (e.g. a maiden flight), I recommend setting a switch for "Instant Trim". Then you just need to hold the model straight and level, flick the "Instant Trim" switch, and the S & L position is put directly into the sub-trims. Thanks Mike. Ho...

Re: Weight?

But keep in mind that with er9x 100% output equals to 125% compared to Futaba, Jr, etc. Why? Because Futaba/JR/Spektrum only use 80% of the possible servo throw for normal stick operation and leave the remaining 20% for use by the trims That makes sense but does it not conclude that with ER9X we ha...

Weight?

Can some one give me some more detail about Weight? The manual says:- "Weight This value multiplies the value from the input. It can range from -125% to +125%. Default is 100%." The reason I'm asking is that I've just fitted out a new model with digital servo's (new ones). With the Weight at 100 (de...

3 Position Switch Question?

How many 3 position switches has this unit got? I've got the original 9XR which has just one and was wondering if the Pro had any more?

Sorry if it's a dumb question but I can't find the answer to this.

Re: Car Battery Charging

Thanks Mike.

Out of interest I've just checked the wall charger that came with my Taranis. It's output is rated at 13.5v, 0.5amps and centre pin +ve polarity. I've put my multi meter across the output jack and it's reading 13.34v. Slightly above the recommended 13v but it works without any issues.

Car Battery Charging

I've been doing some searching to look for a solution for charging my X9D at the field. I take a 12v car battery with me for charging my lipos via a smart charger. My understanding is that the Taranis has an inbuilt charger and another smart charger isn't needed (and can do damage). So, my thinking ...

Just a follow up from previous posts. The bench testing with ersky9x on the Taranis all went well and the field testing also proved successful with about 12 flights and no glitches. The only issue is that in this version of the FW (erxd-r218) the Copy Trim function doesn't work on any of the channel...

Yes, if I change the setting from PPM to PXX all the remaining settings change. The receivers I'll be binding to are Frsky. I've got a Delta 8 outputting PWM (and all the associated spaghetti) and a D8R-XP outputting CPPM. I'm assuming that the "XX" part of PXX means that the settings are ...

Re: ERSKY9X on Taranis

Open eepskye and download your eeprom from the taranis onto it.. Now open eepe and open your saved eeprom from the 9XR. Drag the models one by one from the 9XR eeprom to the taranis eeprom in eepskye. This will copy them. An error will be displayed but you can ignore it. Now burn the taranis eeprom...

It doesn't matter if I press Menu long or short. When I press Menu the Copy Trim dialogue on the screen flashes and the Tx beeps but nothing gets passed to the sub trim. I'm sure this has the M128 processor. Not sure if it helps but here's the EEPE file.
