New Flysky FS-i10 transmitter

er9x is the best known firmware. It has a superb range of features and is well supported by the community. Well worth trying out.

Flysky's new i10 transmitter is out , I just purchased one on Amazon.com and was wondering if er9x would work on it or if you guys have been contemplating a new FW for this Tx. I have a Flysky w/er9x and a 9XR. Love them both and would love to see some ideas or FW upgrades for this new Tx.

Any hardware information on it available? The FIRST thing is to know what processor it has.

Nobody has one at this point, the only thing known is that it's got a 240x400 color touchscreen in portrait orientation. Definitely not a direct port, major work needed in any case...
That thing still seems to have awful ergonomics.

Look at the one with the horizontal screen at the top.. Not that bad. But don't like the antenna and a couple other details.. Love the pots at the bottom though ;)

Yes that one is cool. But it seems they haven't even made their choice yet as there's another one with a portrait screen and with the same name...

I don't know if it is waterproof, I will be receiving mine tomorrow. Hopefully. I will try and give a brief description of it and maybe you guys can figure out if it can be flashed with some version of er9x or maybe come up with something totally new. Either way, I would love it. I love my Flysky , w/ER9X and my 9XR w/ER9x. You guys have done an awesome job. I have a Devo 8S with the Deviation FW on it. Similar to er9x, wish they had a trim reset like in er9x. Phacturedblue may be trying to come up with something I don't know. That feature is a godsend, it has saved so many of my planes,you have no idea. Thank you for all your had work and dedication.

Mike.

The last entry by SkyNorth says that the new i10 will bind with the original Rx's. So the Operating system is the same I would assume and if so, does that mean it may be possible to use ER9X on it if there is a way to connect it to a computer, like perhaps the smartieparts board or something. If there is a way, I know you guys will find a way. I have faith.

Actually the only mentions on that thread say that it is NOT known whether that i10 is compatible with old receivers or not.

Anyway, the RF protocol and RX compatibility basically has nothing to do with the radio firmware. On the 9X that was all handled by the RF module, the 9X and software only provided it with a 40-year old standard PPM signal.

The hardware and software platform of the i10 is without any doubt completely different from the 9X.

they seem compatible to me from what I read here... :

yorkiepap wrote:Hey guys:
Update: GOOD NEWS!!!!!! Setup the 1st series AFHDS Rx on the test board... No problems as the Tx has the various AFHDS Rx formats to bind programmed in. Attached is a pic. Now, at least, you can pick up the less expensive Rx's if you choose, although you will not have any telemetry features. More to come....

I received my i10 last night. My first impression is it is a very good Tx, bound with the rx it came with and a 6 channel flysky 9x rx. So it is backwards compatible with the other rx's.
The only thing I don't care for is the cheap stylus that it comes with. It's like a thin piece of plastic, nothing like the one that came with my Devo 8s. Also, the throttle is easier than I would like, but I will look inside to see if that is adjustable. Came packaged very nice inside a box packed with foam cut to fit around the Tx, No worries of shipping damage. It's FW is updatable via computer along with the rx's, although I don't know where. I haven't read thru the manual enough for that. Very nice manual, I printed it out last night via the dvd that you get. Almost 60 pages and not in Chinglish, very understandable. As if it were written by Americans. The menus are easily navigated. Haven't used it yet, but I will see how well the lcd screen works outside in the sun. My Devo 8s isn't well visible outside, I suspect this one to be the same. Not like the 9x's w/backlight. Radio is very thin, about 2/3rds of a 9x. Otherwise the same size. Feels very good in my hands. All switches are pretty easy to reach, although I have big hands. The pots don't feel real good, may just be me. I would like them to be abit stiffer to turn. Probably just use to the 9x and 9xr. It has nice sliders on top on both sides, easily reachable with index fingers while in use. It has trims switches like the 9XR, I like the ones on the 9x. As of right now, it is a very good Tx and well worth the money and investment.

If you open the tx, could you please take some good resolution pictures from the boards, and post them here? specially the processor area ;)
Maybe the developers could have a good look and maybe they get motivated :mrgreen:

Yes u can, I have found them on ebay & Amazon.com. Rather exspensive thou. The rx's for the i4 Tx should work also. But if u are not worried about telemetry or anything, just use the 9x rx's from flysky/turnigy.

Thanks. I meant any audio for the telemetry? iPod hiccups when it's charging and I'm typing.
I actually had the tx on order from Amazon but they couldn't tell me how to get the USA warranty advertised. Amazon said they had no info, receivers, or contact numbers but would cancel my order. Seeing others had taken delivery, I decided to not R&D this system. I usually buy and not worry but decided to read the reviews from owners this go around.
Strange the FkySky site makes no reference about it, receivers, FW or manual downloads.
I'm very interested in you're review of its actual working features and telemetry display. Any voice alarms or call out of values? The manual would cover this but I just couldn't find one to review.
Thanks for any reviews you can post.
It looks like the Taranis and the HK Pro are still the top $200 or less contenders as far as support and low priced receivers.

Here are some pics of the inside of the new i10. Hope you guys
can see what you are looking for. I am not to tech savy, if you want more
let me know. I do see there are two antennas, not sure why. Also, I don't
see any numbers or letters on the chip/processor in the middle. Silver,
rectangle thing in the center. Lol.... Hope this is helpful.[attachment=0]CAM00065.jpg

I see that the top two pics are rotated ccw and the bottom two are upside down. Don't know how that happened, hopefully you can flip them or something.

The silver box is the RF module. All the "interesting" stuff seems to be on the other side of that big board and under that cover :)

Indeed looks like they either rebranded something or got it custom made. It's apparently the same platform as their car radio, although the i10 has an extra Freescale chip on there (can't check what it is, their website is down today). Likely a 2nd microcontroller that handles the extra control elements.

The Winbond chip is RAM, I'd guess the Flysky branded chip is a display controller and the chip by itself is a processor, but I'm not quite sure what. It looks like it might have a 'M' like Microchip's logo, but the number is not one I can recognise, although it is a little blurred.

Can you read the lettering and post it please.

Mike.
