Re: ERSKY9X Coding

I now have ersky9x running on the FrSky X-Lite transmitter, I'll be posting a test version in the next day or so, complete with a couple of "apps".

Re: RTC not working

The RTC is an I2C interface dvice, so you should see 3.3V on pins 5 and 6. Pins 1 and 2 connect to the crystal (X2).

Re: RTC not working

If the RTC doesn't run at all when you set it, as opposed to not keeping the time when poaered off, then the problem is unlikely to be the battery.
I'll possibly need to see if I can do some specific test firmware to help investigate.

Re: RTC not working

Check the RTC does run when you set it (I think you may have already done that).
The battery supplies power to the RTC chip (U2, a MCP79410-I/SN device) via resistor R81 (100 ohms) and diode D7, ending at pin 3 of U2. Check the battery voltage reaches each of these.

Re: Lost my model match when installing 2.2.1

I ran a quick test using a X-Lite internal XJT module in D8 mode. Bind to a D8R-XP with Rx number 0 ad the Rx continued to respond when I changed the Rx Number, so D8 mode doesn't support Rx number.

Re: eepSKYe

I made a bit of a start to this some time ago. When you run the simulator, you should see the word "WELCOME" appear on the "BEEP" button. This is actually the filename of a voice file. I did have the PC playing that one voice file, but found it too much every time I ran the simulator!

OK, got the fix. A temporary workaround is to change some other setting that isn't in the Logging dialog (then change it back!). That will "save" the Logging changes.

Re: Trim problem

The LH trim switches connect to the main board on J4, connections 5 and 6. Try swapping these over. You should be able pull the crimps out of the housing to do that.

Re: Trim problem

You may check the trim wiring by going to the "DiagSwtch" menu. Trims that are pressed show up at the bottom right of the display.
The left column should change from 0 to 1 when a trim is either left or down.

Re: Orange Module running MULTI protocol

The module uses an AVR XMEGA device that supports inverting the I/O signals from firmware. This option is set by the firmware you flash to the module.

Re: Lost my model match when installing 2.2.1

"Receiver Number" is supported in the Multi-Protocol by modifying the unique ID for RF protocols that don't support the feature directly. I just ran Companion 2.2.1 and "Receiver Number" is present when setting the external protocol to "Multi", both in Companion and in the Taranis+ radio simulation....

Re: Orange Module running MULTI protocol

Why are you concerned, on the 'PRO, with needing the COM1 invert option set? The 'PRO includes a programmable hardware inverter that does the inversion.

Re: 6POS switch adjust PWM value for each position?

What revision of ersky9x are you using?
Check through the curves available, the first 8 are 5 point, then there are 8 9-point curves, then 2 x-y curves and finally a 6-point curve. I added this last one specifically for the situation you have.

You may need to force the module to stay in the bootloader. Power on holding the "bind" button pressed to do that. This may be tricky while holding the trims apart at the same time. There is an option in the RADIO|GENERAL menu (near the end) that runs "maintenance mode" from a normal power on. SO, p...

Try flashing from one of the .hex files that are in "MultiOrangeP1_1_6_22.zip". If the PCB of you module is green, use the "green" file.

It should work, but I can't test it as the external bay connector on my prototype isn't working, the power switch doesn't operate.

Flight mode is "Fmd" as a 'telemetry' value.
Within a script on a custom screen, you can probably have more than one screen.
