Re: Ersky9x Bug Reporting

I think I've resolved the issue. It's a combination of user ignorance and poor FrSky documentation. I found the solution when binding an exact same type of Delta 8 Rx to another model today. After creating a new model, doing my mixes, Expo etc., I went into Model Setup > Protocol. Switched on the in...

Re: Trainer Issue - Wild THR?

Quick Question about the Radio Setup > Trainer screen. In ersky9x I've noticed that next to "Trainer" there is a number that can be changed from 0 to 3. I can't find anything about this in the manual? Has it got something to do with how the slave is setup for different students?

When you calibrate the trainer input in the trainer menu, move all sticks (including the throttle stick) to CENTER before you start the calibration process..

Trainer Issue - Wild THR?

I've setup a Mode 1 Taranis (none Plus) as the Master and a new Mode 2 Taranis Plus as Slave. The control surfaces appear to be working ok on the Master and when I transfer control (!SF for testing) the Slave also has control of the control surfaces. The issue I have is with the Throttle.

Re: Wireless Trainer Module - Availability?

You can just take an SBUS or PPM receiver and hook it up with a male-male servo cable in the module bay, which is what this does in a slightly cleaner way. Thank you Kilrah 1) In addition to channels 1 - 4 the instructor/student setup also passes control of channels PPM7 & PPM8 via the Mixer for fu...

Does anyone know of a module (or similar) to wirelessly connect two Taranis Tx's for student training. Both Tx's are running ERSky9X. I found this one but it's out of stock and I need a UK supplier. http://alofthobbies.com/linker.html It must be plug and play without the need for taking the back off...

Re: How to Change Taranis Firmware?

Just an update. I didn't hear back from Frsky tech support so I've flahed the none LBT version of the 161214 FW. Bench testing confirms my none LBT Rx's are binding with the Tx as expected.

Changing the Filter ADC setting to OSMP calmed the jittering down but SL still jitters but only in its mid position. There doesn't appear to be any slop when it centres. In the Radio Setup > DiagAna screen I can see SL as A7 and where its fast jittering between 0.0 and -0.3. SR is A5 and locked soli...

That's solved it. I had the wrong version in preferences. ERSky9X is back up and running. Thanks. The only thing I've noticed though is that there is some jitter on the knobs and slider bars. When it was running the stock version of OpenTX this wasn't evident in the channel monitor screen. And my ol...

Yes, it starts in bootloader mode. I've created a new EEPROM .bin file in eePeSKY and tried to burn it to the new Taranis in the hope that it would fix things but I get an operation failed message.

I've got a new Taranis Plus and flashed ERSky9X without a problem. Everything was working fine. So I got my old Taranis (not Plus) and read my models from it to a .bin file using eePeSky. But this is where I made my mistake. I then burnt the .bin from the old Taranis to the new one completely forget...

Re: How to Change Taranis Firmware?

Yes, my older Taranis has a sticker in the same place with the date (2014). I've emailed FrSky support with the serial number and bar code number. It'll be interesting to see if I get a reply. I'll give it a few days and if I don't get a reply I'll flash the older FW version.

Re: Limited Servo Movement?

Thank you Joao. What about electric models. Are ESC's expecting the same Spectrum pulse range? None of my FC enabled models have the THR going via the FC. They are a direct connection to the Rx.

Re: Limited Servo Movement?

Thank you. And I will go with your good advice. Just a final question about electric models where the connection does not go via the FC. But I guess that's the same for all ER9X users, but do we also drop the limits to 78 to replicate Spectrum outputs?

I've answered my own question with regard to changing the Limits. It's both sides and I now get replication of Spectrum outputs of 1100 to 1900 as the Flight Controller is specified for. However, if I leave the Limits at 100 but change the Weight in the Mixer Screen to 78 then the 1100 to 1900 is ex...

Re: Limited Servo Movement?

Does your model have a flight controller between the receiver and the servos? Yes it does. An Eagletree Guardian. Sounds like you do have a flight controller and it needs Spektrum pulse widths (1100 to 1900us for +/-100%). So reducing limits to 80% (or more precisely 78%) is the right thing to do. ...

Re: Limited Servo Movement?

Stick calibration is OK. Your suggestion to check the movement on another model has demonstrated the same result i.e. no servo movement with about 15% of stick servo movement left. I hadn't noticed it before. Which got me thinking. A while ago I had an issue with a 3 POS switch and the advice I got ...
