Wanted: SKY9X board

Mine is still working great, but I can't deal with the ergonomics of the 9xr. I really need another board for my friends 9x so I can get him up to speed.

Re: Installing OpenTX 2.0+ on Sky9X board

That's great. I'l give it a try later today. Either way, I'm just happy to have a working solution right now. I may switch back to ersky9x at some point. I needed a lot of the extra features, but ersky9x has really caught up, and surpassed in some areas. But, I think I've messed with the radio enoug...

Re: Installing OpenTX 2.0+ on Sky9X board

Aha! Thank you! Yes, mass storage works in the bootloader. I was coming from versions so old they didn't have the bootloader mode, and OpenTX had previously had mass storage mode in the main section after bootup. Works perfectly now. I should be able to cope nicely until the next openTX update. For ...

Re: Installing OpenTX 2.0+ on Sky9X board

Can somebody share a version of 2.0.5 or the new bootloader so I can get working? I ended up installing ersky9x, and then using bootloader mode from there to flash 2.0.12, and it's working, but I seem to have lost mass storage mode? Is there something different I should be doing? Or should I just ha...

Clark,

I'm sure he didn't mean to belittle your problem. He just meant that you're posting it in the wrong place.

This thread is specifically about trouble getting 2.0.12 installed on a sky9x board in the first place. We haven't had a chance yet to worry about how it behaves once installed...

For me, no.
Nothing gets installed, blank screen even with boatloader switches held.

In fact, the computer doesn't even recognize it as a USB device until after the reset.

Installing OpenTX 2.0+ on Sky9X board

Hi, I've been happily running some old version of OpenTX on my Sky9X board since mid last-year. I got the bright idea of upgrading to the latest version, so I downloaded CompanionTX, and V2.0.12 for Sky9X board, and sent it via SAM-BA. Well, that bricked the radio. So, I opened it up, jumpered the e...

Re: "Flip" button on Syma X1/WLToys v949

No answers I'm afraid, but I'm watching this as i have plenty of resistors and arduino, but no crystals etc. This seems like a very simple and cheap way of putting this all together.

Re: Count down glitch on 10 seconds.

I made a short double-beep sound and put that in place of timer10.wav. Now there is some distinction between the last 10 and the below 0 sounds. That will have to do for now.

Re: openTX-r2491

First, all my sounds that I made made myself stopped working. They had been 22khz, 16bit PCM. I made them into uLaw, but that didn't fix it. Had to convert a...

Re: Does OpenTX support timer up + beep

I haven't tested this, but it should be possible to do with a custom switch. Set the switch to timer > 8:00, with a limited duration, and then use that switch to play a sound. Just tested, and it works! I had to set another switch to < time, and use AND so the beeping would stop at a set time as well.

Re: Help. My splash screen has disappeared.

? Open9x has the THt mode (starts when throttle is advanced, never stops), and THs (starts when throttle is advanced and stops again when it's back to 0). This is available for both timers, and on all boards. Exactly. It starts on first throttle advance, but never stops. Or, it only runs when the t...

Re: Help. My splash screen has disappeared.

I guess I'll take this one at a time. First,I had a look at the ANA screen. The numbers are fluctuating about 2 values when the backlight is on (ie. 03F4-03F2, etc) for the most part, this isn't enough to change the corresponding whole number values. When the backlight is off, the numbers are of cou...

Re: Help. My splash screen has disappeared.

Okay. I've narrowed it down. I can reproduce the problem reliably now, but I can't quite explain it. It's the backlight. Whenever the backlight is on during startup, the splash is skipped. It's actually the light, and not the setting. I went all the way back to r753 and it doesn't have the problem (...

I upgraded to r776 a while back, and noticed that I wasn't seeing my splash anymore. I checked the settings. It was turned on. I figured it was a bug and today installed r777.

The ersky board requires Sam-Ba instead of avrdude. There's some info in the wiki about it. Several hoops to jump through, but not too difficult.

Re: Sky9x Rotaty Encoder Option

It seems that I'm placing a one-time order for wheels and pins next week sometime. Probably around Wed. The encoder wheels might be slightly more difficult to mail since they're thicker than the PCB's, but I'll figure it out. Looks like my blank boards will be arriving on Tues.
