Re: Battery connector

Look for something burnt near the battery connector.. But my guess is that the short was just between the 2 outer pins of the connector. That might explain why the radio still works..

Re: Turnigy 9XR pro shows blank blue bootloader screen

I would say bad quality is the cause.
I wouldn't plug any high power RF modules to the radio..

After reassembling. Didn't need to desolder anything. Just took the switch apart.

Re: Turnigy 9XR pro shows blank blue bootloader screen

The power switch is broken..
I also had that problem. Couldn't find replacements. I had to take the switch apart and clean the contacts with alcohol and a tooth brush.. Then had to assemble it again..

You could probably make it even more flexible, if you would allow the Pot's analogs to be used as 3 position switches. Imagine someone like m...

On my models I have programmed a "Motor active" warning if i turn the throttle switch ON but do not move it from the bottom for 20 seconds.

Mstrens asked you if the problematic Arduino has an Atmega168 chip instead of an Atmega328.

Re: "Smart" Throttle Cut?

Just tried it in Companion now.. it is like that.. So, if I am just trying to create some programming where I am experimenting, it makes it nearly impossible to work with. The fix is to create a bunch of logical switches with random functions, and then delete the ones you didn't need. that is what i...

Re: "Smart" Throttle Cut?

The problem is that you can not use another logical switch on the one you are currently programming without creating it before.. and that can be a pain.. :( I hope that Ersky9x doesn't change to something like this, at least not the same way.. :o

Re: telemetry wiring

I am not sure, but I think that with Ersky9x you don't need the Arduino converter anymore.. Just saying, I don't use this system. Also, is the 1W tx powered by the radio's battery? I wouldn't do that as the 9XR-PRO's power switch might not cope with such current draw. It is bad, really bad. I don't ...

Re: "Smart" Throttle Cut?

Sorry, I am not very familiar with OpenTX, so I take the risk asking a stupid question. What does "RC" mean in this context?? :)
I think I have installed the latest companion.. RC4. Is this what RC mean? If so, it does not seem to be fixed.

Yes but having the Rx dead for one second and then back to life again is still way better than having the engine shutting off... and NOT back to life again. :o I wouldn't count on it.. even if the brownout would last only one second (which it doesn't believe me, been there :) ) it is time enough to...

The voltage drops under load could shut off your receiver, and that would be your real problem. ;) And that is the reason why I prefer the 2 batteries setup :) About the grounds. On the 2 battery setup the batteries grounds are not connected together. As you can see, the glow battery connects only t...

Re: Grounding to Rx (FrSky D8R-XP) of on board glow device

You can connect exactly as shpwn in Pic2. The receiver receives the ground from the BEC. The Glow Driver receives the ground directly from the battery. So, only the signal wire needed from the Glow Driver to the Battery, exactly as in the picture. This way, ground loops are avoided. If you need to c...

Re: "Smart" Throttle Cut?

If it is going to do that, then in my opinion, it should do it dynamically so that when you create an entry for another logical switch, it then appears in the drop down lists for other logical switches. But even like this Mike, we can't create a logical switch using the next one on its fields.. And...
