Re: "Smart" Throttle Cut?

I've taken screenshots from the vid. In the vid CH3 is THR and SG is the switch. 3 lines of programming compared to one in Ersky9X.

"Smart" Throttle Cut?

I've previously been using Ersky9X on my Taranis. There is a menu screen Safety Switches where it's an easy entry to enable a throttle cut that not only disables the throttle but also won't allow it to arm unless the THR stick is in the fully down position. A great safety feature. I'm trying OpenTx ...

Re: SOLVED Phoenix Sim?

I uninstalled the SIM from the PC then reinstalled it. Went into the radio Model > Protocol and set it to PPM 8 channels and changed Polarity to NEG. I also went into General menu and enabled Trainer. Not sure if the latter had any affect but it's all working now :)

SOLVED Phoenix Sim?

Upgraded the FW on Turnigy 9XR to 820. Now the Tx will not work with Phoenix Sim. I've setup a new model on the Tx and tried every protocol there is in Model Setup > Protocol including going into Radio Setup > Controls and enabling PPMSIM and setting that in the model Protocol menu.

On my Taranis running ersky9x I can set failsafe from the Tx. Model Setup > Protocol > Failsafe > Custom then set the custom settings I want. I'm setting up er9x on a (aged) Turnigy 9XR.

Trainer Function - PPM 1 to 8 or 1 to16?

The manual states that CH's 1 - 4 are available as standard in the Radio Setup > Trainer menu and additional channels 5 to 8 can be added in the mixer. I appear to remember reading somewhere that CH 8 is not the upper limit but can go up to CH 16? Is this correct? The reason I ask is because I'm set...

Then you probably need to set the lower limit a bit higher, just at the point where the engine stops, with the trim all down?
This ones a petrol installation with a CDI kill switch on the Tx. Is my thinking about weight and offset looking correct?

Re: Limiting Servo Movement?

Do you need such high idle setting?? :o
Getting the servo arm in this position is at the point where the barrel in the carb is just starting to open i.e. tick over.

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..

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.

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.
