Re: How to receive GPS on 9xrPro Ersky9xr 221 g7

I don't know Betaflight, but it seems you don't have any SPort telemetry working. SWR comes from the Tx module and RSSI comes from the Rx.

Re: Another two modules thread. 2.0

If the red LED is blinking, then at least the processor is working OK.
What bootloader did you flash to the module? The STMduino bootloader is for flashing from the USB, not the radio.

In the Arduino IDE, have you used the "boards manager" and installed "Multi 4-in-1 STM32 Board"?

Re: Realistic driving in land vehicles.

If your throttle (ratchet) stick is on the left, then you should be in mode 2. The radio needs this to be able to "know" where the throttle stick is in order to do the throttle check on power on/model select properly. Note that in each model, you may configure the throttle check to test for the stic...

Your original Tx is going to be "Universal", if it is that old. Where did you obtain your new purchase? Are you sure the "Universal" one you got was not actually an EU version? The type really affects only the firmware on the internal XJT module, and it is possible to flash that with the firmware yo...

Re: Using momentary switch to cycle through flight modes

Re: How precise is OpenTX?

The value between -1024 to +1024 is scaled in order to send it to the XJT module, by a factor of 512/682 (=0.75073) in openTx. ersky9x uses a factor of 3/4 (=0.75). The resulting PPM pulse would only differ by 0.5uS between these. Checking the output pulse from a S8R receiver, I see 988 uS to 2012 u...

Re: XJT Mode - switch on module case or in model settings

No need to use the switches on the back of the module, always just use the menu. The switches are only there for the case where the module is used in a Tx that only outputs PPM and so cannot have a menu for the settings.

Works perfectly OK, I have such an arrangement on my QX7. The only "extra" thing I have done is to include a diode in the charging connection to prevent the charger being connected with reverse polarity.

Re: ERSKY9X Coding

The 4th Jan version is only for the Taranis Plus. P3 is a "spare" analog input, and wasn't working correctly, that test version just fixed the problem to allow it to work.
You may use a pot as a 6-pos switch, just run the calibration on it.

I thought I also checked that would work as well. Put the Rx into "auto-level" mode and adjust the AIL and ELE output directions so the elevons respond correctly, reversing the outputs as required. If you can't get that to work, swap the servo connections, then you should be able to get it correct. ...

Re: Review: FRSKY S8R Receiver

Unless you want "hover" or "knife edge" you may mount the Rx sideways (across the fuselage). I checked this out on the bench a while ago, all you need to do is plug the aileron servo into the ELE output and the elevator servo into the AIL output!

Re: Serial in eepe/eepskye

Is this for a 9X running er9x, or have you got an upgrade board in the 9X and are running ersky9x?

On ersky9x, you may receive an SBUS signal on COM2 at 57600 baud (instead of the standard 100000 baud), and use that as 16 channels of trainer input.
