Re: having issues with USBASP driver

Don't know what to hell is all the fuss about. I have several Win10 systems (pro, 64) here and no problems with usbasp. Drivers installed via Zadig. Only downside I found is this: Arduino IDE (1.6.10) (with avrdude 6.3) only works with WinUSB drivers provided e.g. by Zadig (2.2). But avrdude 5.1 pr...

Re: 9X (and possibly 9XR/PRO) Switch Board Design

I use such a switch with the AR9x board for quite some time already, and it works great! http://www.rccube.ru/image/cache/catalog/products/new_switch_1.4_02-500x500.jpg I didn't try it with a 9Xtreme though.

Re: 9Xtreme and Multiprotocol Module With STM chip

Mike, I am looking at building a Multiprotocol with a STM32 chip. The module uses a "SN74LVC2G00DCTR DUAL INPUT POSITIVE-NAND GATE". I have been told that this chip is needed because of the Taranis radio. I am planning to install this module as internal in my 9XT radio, and use COM2 for the telemet...

Re: Magnetic gimbals for x9d & x9dp

Yes they are, but we are talking about the Taranis Gimbals, not the 9XR-PRO, That's another story. The beta testers of the 9XR-PRO (I was one of them) suggested Hobbyking at the time to use better gimbals on the radio. Well, as we all know they didn't follow the suggestion unfortunately.

Thats why its getting better. Now at least the taranis will get an excellent upgrade and everybody will stop complaining about how crappy are the actual gimbals. Let see about the price.

Re: Stock/er9x Rotary Encoder

Mike, I've done that. So I changed the wire layout rotary-gnd-switch-rotary, and the exact same problem persisted. So I changed the wires to gnd-rotary-switch-rotary and the same problem happens. :| :? :|

Re: Stock/er9x Rotary Encoder

Mike, i just checked resistance. When the I put the leads, the value is 1, then when the button is pressed the value goes up to 500 and above and comes back to 0. A little bit the opposite of what you say.

Re: Stock/er9x Rotary Encoder

Yes it's "1" in the diagSwtch. But the "1" is highlighted as if it was pressed. I also see that when I press down, the left and down are highlighted at the same time. I think I will have to trim the case a little bit more, because I noticed that the up key has little down movement.
