Re: Limited Servo Movement?

Ok Chaps. I think I've got all the info I need now to set up these FC enabled models. I would just like to close this thread by saying a very BIG thank you for helping me out.

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?

Re: Limited Servo Movement?

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 ...

Limited Servo Movement?

I'm setting up a new model. Tx is a Taranis X9D running ERSKY9X. Hobbyking digital servos. My problem is that when I move the sticks I see the servos move but stop before I've applied full travel to the stick. They stop moving and there is about 15% of stick travel left :?: Sorry if this has been as...

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.

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...

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.

My understanding is that the Taranis has an inbuilt charger and another smart charger isn't needed (and can do damage). So, my thinking ...

Open eepskye and download your eeprom from the taranis onto it.. Now open eepe and open your saved eeprom from the 9XR.
