Re: Fried Radio?

Looks like I'm officially stuck... I can't do anyhtign without a radio but I can't afford something like a Taranis and I dont want to buy another 9XR Pro if this is what I can expect... I guess my only option is to build my own with a Mega 2560?

Re: Fried Radio?

Also, I have no idea if this makes any difference but in comparing images posted by the user in the aforementioned thread to my own board I noticed one small difference which may or may not be relevant... In both radios there is a sticker with a blue mark covering what I believe it is a thermal fuse...

Re: Fried Radio?

OK. the measurements between FU1 and R9 read the same whether I turned the switch on or off. Measurements of the J5 header pins are not so consistent. I get nothing between 2 and 3 whether the switch is on or off. Voltages between 1+2= 11.88v and 3+5=12.12v when switched off. However, when I power o...

Re: Fried Radio?

OK. I'm getting something in the range of 2.25v under the DCV setting on my meter. It definitely seemed to do something though as it interupted the buzzing sound when I touched the leads.

Re: Fried Radio?

Was the radio powered on when you plugged the module in? Near the top left of the main board is the 5V pre-regulator. On the main board near this are two test points labelled 0V and 5V. When you switch on, do you get 5V between them? Mike. Can you do what Mike ask here? This could help to find out ...

Wait... So are you saying I shouldn't change the limits to 80% and to just leave it alone? Or to change the Mix levels to 80% instead of the limits?

Re: 9XR-Pro settings for Naze32/Flip32

You can adjust either weight or limits and get the same basic result. However, good practice is to leave the weight at 100 and set limits to 80. This makes a difference in some more advanced programming situations. One more point, any time the instructions say to bring throttle trim all the way dow...

Thank you for the explanation! I can't picture myself figuring that out on my own accord... Just to be sure, which menu settings should I be editing exactly?

Re: Software Defined TX using Arduino and Android?

I dont think the hardware you mention in your last paragraph would be considered SDR. the NRF24 is not SDR. Of course the NR24 can't be considered a Software Defined Radio... Nor could any other hardware component for that matter! The whole point to the SDR is that it should be as platform agnostic...
