help needed programimg DSMX SAFE RX 3 diffrent modes

SAFE Beginner mode is programmed to climb at full throttle, fly level at mid throttle and glide at low throttle. It also limits bank and pitch to about 30 degrees and self-levels when the sticks are released. As well, it automatically mixes aileron and rudder. That's why it's called Beginner Mode. I...

Re: 9xr and e-flite apprentice safe rx

That's correct. I have one of the Orange v1.2 modules flashed to Multiprotocol and it works well with all the receivers I have tested, including those in UMX models. Range is very good.

Re: 9xr and e-flite apprentice safe rx

I was wrong. The problem is a well known one with the Orange module, which is not properly compatible with the UMX receivers. I was never able to resolve it and went instead to a Spektrum module hacked from an old DX5e. That did the trick. The Orange module is fine with most stand-alone receivers, b...

Re: 9xr and e-flite apprentice safe rx

That's not a transmitter problem, it has to do with the ESC and/or motor and/or battery. Start with the battery, as it sounds like the motor is heading for full speed when the current draw reaches a critical level and the ESC cuts out.

Note that most of those range results are with various relatively short range receivers used in little helis.

Re: Help troubleshooting "loss of signal" (and crash)

This doesn't sound like signal loss at all. It seems much more likely to be intermittent power loss in the model or even a transmitter intermittent failure. These of course are failures of the RF link but not what we think of as signal loss usually. My point is not to jump to conclusions but analyze...

Re: how may I change the default switch position to be -100 low on a taranis x7 to emulate a DX5e SAFE BNF RX

Just be sure to set all channel limits to 80% when dealing with a model intended for use with a Spektrum transmitter. In OpenTX, 100% travel is equivalent to 125% in a Spektrum transmitter. Not only will the servos overtravel if the Taranis is set to 100% limits, but in some cases the SAFE system re...

Which three switches? As Mike says, Bootloader mode is entered by holding the rudder and aileron trim levers towards the middle of the transmitter while turning on the Tx.

Set limits on channels 1-6 to 80%. Reverse channels 2 and 4. You may also need to reverse Channel 6, bu...

Re: Channel 5 doesn't do anything!

Servo travel is normally limited to about 45 - 50 degrees each way at the absolute maximum. Servos do not normally allow anywhere near 90 degrees without modification.

Re: Template does not setup mixes using TAER order?

That's my understanding. The Multi module by default requires AETR input channel order for all protocols but produces TAER output when set to DSMX/DSM2. This is convenient if you use several different protocols -- as long as you realize what's happening!

Those are the key files on the transmitter. DON'T TOUCH THEM.

One is the operating system (firmware) and the other is the storage file where models are created.

Give the whole thing some thought.

Specifically, there's a v.2 which might (or might not) have significant advantages...

I think when you say modules, first you mean receivers, until the last reference, which really is about modules. The R615X receiver does not have a sterling reputation for reliable reception. But you shouldn't condemn all off-brand receivers on the basis of this experience. The newer Orange receiver...

Because fixed position flaps are preferable in most situations. When you put down flaps for landing you want to know exactly what you will get.

See item #18 above.

If you are using ERSky9x, you can easily add deadband in the Hardware menu (hold left horizontal trim to the left while turning on to gain access).

Are you sure expo and dual rate won't do what you need.
