Yes, please right click on the model in eepskye, then select "save model settings" or something similar.. I am not at the PC at the moment..
You can also save the complete eeprom. "File / save as" you can select save as .bin or .eepe.
Then just post the file here..

I don't know why you insist in using a pot. You have enough switches..
Also, you are using the ID switch. Is this for the bait and also for the hooks?
as far as I can see you release the bait on ID0?

Please forget the voice for now, you need to have all controls working first. the voice is easy

Ok, I think I've programmed all the stuff. See the attached file
CH3 - Static LightsTurn them on with !GEA
CH4 - Lights that blink when both left and right bait doors open. They need to be turned ON with !AIL before..
CH5 - Left Bait door. Switch ID0
CH6 - Right Bait door. Switch ID2

Switch needs to be in the middle position ID1, to keep both doors closed.. Is this what you had in mind?

CH7 - Left Hook. To release move the Rud stick fully left for at least 3 seconds.
Ch8 - Right Hook. To release move the Rud stick fully right for at least 3 seconds.

Some mixes say (Note). This means that I have written some notes on them. Double click on the mix to view the notes at the bottom of the mix editor window.

Test it on the simulator. it seems to be working for me..

Quick update everything looks perfect, might set hopper release on left stick like hook release, but just letting you know that I do not have any notes showing in mixes, any ideas as to why not?

Trying to set a voice name for BAITBOAT model but cannot add a name can only select a number, did make a file for it,

Also autopilot flight mode says same thing for both flight modes, says Autopilot off but not on

Thanks again for all your help.

Sorry, I re-imported and notes are now there, so strange.

At present lights flash before the doors actually open, as it seems as soon as rudder (left stick) moved to left or right the lights start to flash, but because need to hold stick for 3 secs to activate lights may flash and think bait is dropped and actually not, they need to go on after stick held for 3 seconds.

And will the lights also flash when 3 position switch is switched to either ID0 or ID2 as well as on rudder stick being held?

Think other than the voices it all working on transmitter simulator

Many thanks John

I have programmed the bait doors on ID0 and ID2. the lights blinked with them.. You might have changed something then..

Hi João,

Ok, everything seems to work fine for now without changing anything.

Issues I am now having are getting voicefiles to play when hook left and hook right are dropped, also when I startup handset I would like it to say my voicefiles when handset or model is turned on.

Would like voice file for lights on and off, I have made the files and they are on sd card under user directory but not playing.

Thanks John

The door voices should be easier to program.

There is something I don't understand, you want the radio to start speaking the doors or lights states when you power the radio ON or change model?

Yes, have done them all now, had to use custom names and not numbers,

At present you programmed ID0 and ID2 as hopper droppers, is there much to do if I want to change them to the left stick up and down?

As I may be adding a motor winch at some point for underwater camera and will need the ID0 and ID2 and up and down controls?

Thanks John

wouldn't the left stick be more suitable for controlling the camera?

Hi again, everything working as it should, I am now going to be adding a Pixhawk 4 Flight Controller, do i need to do much on the handset for this to work or it mostly done through Mission Planner?

Just waiting for the kit to turn up next week.

Thanks John

I have no idea on this one as I never used that flight controller. But why do you need a flight controller on a boat?? :o :mrgreen:

It’s mainly for Gps and plotting exact location, say if putting bait out in middle of night you want to be on exactly the same place, the Pixhawk I thought was one of the best ones and at good price

Sounds like a good job for an Arduino
