Re: GVAR selection in Expo/Dr tab

Thanks Mike.

No only one pot but need three different values to flow through to each DR.
Didn't think of the obvious of using ID switching in the mixer - so thanks for that!

Cheers and thanks.

Re: GVAR selection in Expo/Dr tab

Oops - Just thought I should mention this is not true differential as in one aileron going up more than the other going down.
I'm using it for elevator control of elevons so I can adjust glider looping up or down without dropping a wing (up and down <pitch> differential) :-)

Re: GVAR selection in Expo/Dr tab

So far I've only tried GVAR in Expo/DR. I'm trying for elevon differential by using different values (values called by the GVARs) in the DR Left and DR Right. Eg: currently - ELE Not ID2 Not ID1 HIG 100 100 83 100 MID 100 75 66 100 LOW 100 50 38 100 want - ELE Not ID2 Not ID1 HIG 100 100 GV1 100 MID...

GVAR selection in Expo/Dr tab

Hi. May be missing something simple, but I can't seem to select anything other than "GV1" in the Expo/Dr tab for "D/R Left" and "D/R Right". Expo's though are fine with GVARs. Is there a trick other than ticking each of the GVAR boxes underneath the dropdown box? Unselecting the GVAR box doesn't bri...

Re: er9x development

Hi Guys stepped away from er9x developments for a minute or two (ok a year!) and great to see things have moved on (in a big way). Last time I was here the voice mod was the project of the day and I still get a kick out of this feature even though its old hat now. I still want to keep 'Betsy' going ...

Re: Audio (voice) - Stock 9X PCB

+1 on SD card problems. It took two cards for me to find success and I still find files truncate unless I overwrite all files every change. Module seems to be fussy with respect to cards.

Re: Audio (voice) - Stock 9X PCB

Guys just a SD Card observation: I believe the voice modules are a little fussy with the SD Card, as I recently found I was getting a voice-message cut short consistently. On the PC that SD Card file was fine. The fix was to copy all the voice files onto the Card again (overwrite). Doing only this (...

You could look at the Voice Open9X thread. Thomas9x has made a PCB and links to it. Here's the start of that sub-topic: viewtopic.php?f=45&t=1257&start=30#p21291

Mr jhsa - I've noticed my voices are slightly different to yours in the voice pack. Just to check, are you using: iSpeech, English female (UK), normal speed? Could simply be my Audacity equalizer setting, but thought I would check. Cheers.

Re: Audio (voice) - Stock 9X PCB

Think I can appreciate that Mike. An EEPROM structure change sounds like a 'clean whiteboard' project, with all the debugging that would ensue!

Just a question still on coding, is much involved to get the Voice functionality on eePe? Honest no pressure meant!

Want to give something back to this thread, open question: would a fault-finding guide be useful? As my experiences with the SD Card are fresh in mind I have a few tips still bouncing around :-)

Re: Audio (voice) - Stock 9X PCB

I would suggest the usual things before connecting:
  • Supply voltage around 3.3
  • Supply voltage correct polarity
  • Speaker not shorted
  • Clock and data lines around 3.3V or 0V
All these things can be measured with your TX powered up without module connected.

Best of luck :)

Re: Audio (voice) - Stock 9X PCB

Hey Mike Quick question on the interface circuit. I've made one up (yet to install) and just wonder how the 'Busy' part of the cct works? I'm guessing TR1 grounds the PB7 signal to inhibit clocking when the Audio module is busy, but as PB7 is directly connected to the MCU (no resistor) I can't see h...
