Re: "Trainer Connection Lost" error while not using trainer

oddly enough, my haptic has also just stopped working.
I even double checked a model that I know had haptic on countdown and it isn't working.

X4R - repairing the antennas

TLDR Why is there a 120ohm resistor (are they resistors?) connecting ground and active on the u.fl connectors on X4R receivers? (as seen on left most x4r highlighted by green boxes) I recently acquired 4 x4r from someone, 3rd hand. They were covered in conformal coating, which I removed *painfully s...

Re: "Trainer Connection Lost" error while not using trainer

Let me make it more confusing: Logo480 is the modified copy of another model and it definitely gives trainer connection lost Either 600ESP or 600E is the model that Logo480 was copied from and it's also one that is chirping about trainer connection. One of the 600's *does not whine about the trainer...

Re: "Trainer Connection Lost" error while not using trainer

My tx, the one I'm flying with that is giving me the error is set to "slave" in the radio setup tab. I figured the slave only ever outputs signal; it's ignorant to the fact that it's involved in a trainer setup. But, it only happens on 2 out of 7 of my models. It just so happens that the 2nd of thos...

"Trainer Connection Lost" error while not using trainer

I have an x7 running ERSKYTx (*have to get used to the new name) -222, I think. I've not changed anything in the last 6 months other than mixer settings. Yesterday while flying one of my models, my x7 decided to begin announcing "training connection lost", non stop; it was hard to concentrate on fly...

Lower LDO Regulator on my gyro?

I'm trying to figure out how to get a micro brain flybarless gyro to run off of 1s. Currently, the micro brain used a Micro 5209 LDO regulator that requires +1v above output (3.3v out, so min 4.3vin). Here is the datasheet The application uses 1s lipo which will drain to about 3.3v under load. No, I...

Re: OpenTx vs ER9x/ErSky9x telemetry

I am getting signal strength already but will check as you have described.

I do beleive the fault lies somewhere in the brain/esc setup, but figured I should ask here, just in case.

Re: ERSKY9X Coding

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 ...

Re: Ersky9x X7 won't initialize module on power up

Hey, Mike!
It happens only with the 3D250 model.
the 450x and DFC250 will both initialize on power up if they are the active model but the 3D 250 will not initialize on power up.
Any idea?
I will manually transfer all the 3d250 settings over to a new model/new name and see if that "fixes" it.
