Re: ERSKY9X Coding

The odd control on the left, in the middle of the buttons labelled PgUp and PgDn, should be working as though it is 4 buttons, left, up, down and right. For a picture, you need a .bmp file, 128 pixels wide, 64 pixels high and 24-bit colour. Then put the file in an Images directory on the root of the...

Re: ERSKY9X Coding

OK, I've fixed the problem with my prototype Horus. The module connector was wired with the pins in the opposite order to that required. Some track cutting and add 4 wires and it is all working. A Multi module plugged in shows the correct LEDs and reports back with the firmware revision so looks to ...

Re: ERSKY9X Coding

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.

I need to investigate what the problem is.

Re: ERSKY9X Coding

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

Re: ERSKY9X Coding

As a start to what might be possible for that idea, I'll make the "Total Model time" available as a "Telemetry value". With that, you should be able to use the value (hours:minutes) on a custom telemetry display, and also use it in a telemetry script.

I'm just testing the added feature of being able to edit the notes for a model on the radio.
You edit them one line at a time, but it all seems to be working.

I hope to post a test version in the next day or so.

Have you done the mod with or without an inverter/buffer. I think the IrangeX module comes the telemetry sent as inverted serial (as needed by FrSky transmitters). If you haven't used an inverter/buffer in your mod then you either need to add one, or reflash the IrangeX with multiprotocol firmware s...

How old is the radio? There is a small lithium battery on the main board that keeps the clock running when the radio is powered off. If the radio is quite old, this my need replacing.

Re: ERSKY9X Coding

The multiprotocol module isn't much, if any better than a XJT. Without any heartbeat synchronisation the latency can get quite long. Also, the multiprotocol module sends channels 1-8 in one frame, then channels 9-16 in the next, 9mS later. I understand that the XJT actually may send some or all of c...

PA25 now added in as another input. I've tested it on an AR9X board. From the early days of the SKY board, I had been using it to drive the 9X stock buzzer, but I've now removed that code to completely free the pin off.

Yes, if you don't want to use the heartbeat signal, PB14 still works as before. If you have PB14 in use for a switch, the option doesn't appear in the protocol menu. PA25 will appear as an extra switch source (but you don't want it yet as you don't want to mod your radios :mrgreen: ). I reckon witho...

I assume you are using EXT1-3 and PB14 for your extra buttons. Looking at the AR9X/ARUNI and SKY boards, we do have PA25 spare. It is used on the 'PRO to enable the SPort output driver. I should be able to make this available as an extra switch/button input so if you then use that instead of PB14, y...

That will take some time to do while keeping the encoded values for items that come after PB14(DAC1) the same. Mike Edit: Not sure, since the heartbeat signal is open collector, you could wire a push button to PB14(DAC1) at the same time. Then, if using a XJT, you use the heartbeat, and if not using...

This does seem to work in a 9XR-PRO, although I don't like the look of the heartbeat signal. The XJT drives it from an open collector driver, but the only pullup is the one in the processor. Since there is a 0.1uF capacitor on the signal, it doesn't get much above 2 volts before the heartbeat pulls ...

Re: ERSKY9X Coding

Bob: This has no effect on the telemetry performance.

João: This is only active if you are using a XJT module. If you are using the PB14 as a switch input then if you enable the option all that happens is it won't synchronise and performs as it currently does.

As is often the case, there is more than one way to achieve the same end result, no one way is necessarily the "correct" way. Having recognisable filenames is clearly useful.

Having been doing some measurements regarding latency when using FrSky XJT modules, it is clear to me that synchronising to the XJT heartbeat signal is important. It is also then useful to send all 16 channels to the XJT in 9mS, rather than just 8 channels every 9mS. On FrSky transmitters, the XJT h...

In settings, choose communications, then try to find what programmer AvrDude should use, possibly Arduino. If you have flashed the '2560 using a USBASP, it is likely you have erased any bootloader that was in the '2560, and you need one to flash using the USB connection.
