Re: X12S Screen goes blank

I have made some progress since my last post. If the backlight mode (Radio Settings) is set to ON the next line "ON brightness" applies. If the backlight mode is set to "both", "Controls", "Keys" or "OFF" then the next line again. "OFF brightness" determines the value that applies. On the old radio ...

Re: X12S Screen goes blank

I just installed the FRSKY RF module firmware version 1.5.04. I still get the blank screen. There's no reason that I know of that this might have made a difference but I thought it was worth a try. The error on bind is now gone so there was a benefit.

X12S Screen goes blank

At present I have an X12S and when I load a particular model (attached) the screen goes blank (completely black, no backlight, nothing). I can hear normal voice responses so it seems that the model has loaded but I cannot see anything. The particular radio is a new X12S, production model AFAIK. this...

Re: RSSI drops to 12 - but only with a particular model selected

I have updated the receiver firmware to the most recent (20171213) non-EU version. This made no difference to the original issue, the same Rx numbers worked as before and the same didn't work. I tried the same with my earliest model X9D and some receiver numbers were OK, some not. I had thought that...

Re: RSSI drops to 12 - but only with a particular model selected

Changing the receiver number appears to have fixed the problem. I did see this issue myself with early S6R firmware and my X9D transmitter, but never with either of my X9D+ before. The receiver number that doesn't work is 05. I'll try a few more tomorrow. It seems peculiar to me that an installation...

Re: RSSI drops to 12 - but only with a particular model selected

No it's not swamping, I'm experienced with that. I rebound the original receiver several times and then bound the second receiver. Also sensor deletion and rediscovery was done this morning with both receivers but it made no difference. Perhaps I didn't make it clear but both the S8R receivers work ...

I'm not sure where to post this, or even if the problem is OpenTx related. But I'll ask anyway in the hope that someone can give me some clues.

There's a battery on the main board. I note that there's a tick box titled "adjust RTC" which I haven...

Time in log file

What is the "time" entry in the log file displaying please? Is there a relationship between the logged time and the time of day shown on the Tx? The log file time seems to be affected by the timezone and can show values >24 (presumed) hours so it's obviously not meant to be time of day.

Getting back to fixing it. The wing is no problem, it will go back together with UHU (best), gorilla glue or anything foam safe.

M9 Gymbals in a X9E

The M9 gymbals can be installed in a X9E radio but need to be reversed (turned 180 degrees) to fit. This obviously means that the throttle and elevator directions will be reversed. This was dealt with when people started using Horus gymbals in the same radio by a firmware alternative selected prior ...

Re: New M9-R High Sensitivity Hall Sensor Frsky Gimbals

The M9-R gymbals are identical to the M9 except that the removable faceplate has different indentations that prevent the stick moving as far as it does in the M9. You can convert either one to the other by swapping the faceplates. Both are the normal Taranis standard 3.3V.

Re: Calibration question

Thanks. Would it be possible/feasible/desirable to have an option in the radio calibration to set the ranges from 1000 to 2000?

Is Cleanflight one of the systems that allows the CLI option you mention?

Some of the flight controllers that I use state that the range should be altered in their setup to 1000 to 2000. I have been modifying these values in the outputs screen,...
