Re: need help to repair 9X main board

I made the mistake of using my dremel grinder to cut the leads off. Went well until I discovered I had cut they one of the traces that runs under the processor. What to do? No easy way to add the wire externally without looking bad. My answer was to use the # 30 awg wire wrap wire. I stripped it and...

Re: Non invert Attiny 85 led driver.

So I must be spacing out? Gave it a try today after some sleep and coffee, with an emitter follower and then common emitter. The mode that looks correct to me is having the led connected from the Tiny85 output pins to ground. The common emitter with the led in the collector seems to look correct fla...

Re: Non invert Attiny 85 led driver.

Drive an N Mosfet directly from the ATtiny pin, or a P channrel Mosfet from an NPN transistor. In this case, base of the transistor to the Microcontroller pin, emitter to ground, and.collector to the Mosfet gate.. Place an 100K resistor between source and gate so the Mosfet can turn off..

Re: Non invert Attiny 85 led driver.

All good ideas! My thought was to invert the code but that’s still a challenge for me. If the posted code mod does that I’ll give it a try. I’ll study the changes and what they are doing. It’s a logical option but I’m more component oriented and usually take that approach. I should stock some P chan...

Re: taranis wont turn on

Is it posable it has the new otx fw that requires the power button be pushed for more that I think 3 seconds?
I haven’t upgraded to that yet but I herd comments about it from the newer x7 owners at my field.

Is there a orange fw version that fixes the umx receiver issue but keeps the ppm mode Mike? I was asked this by a 10x owner that wants to stay with Fros on his 10x. I don’t think it supports the multi mode module fw option so he’s limited to ppm mode. I did suggest the IRangeX plus that had the knob...

Re: Antenna replacement

I would try to find the right antenna. I believe you will lose range if you use the D8R antenna. And you will lose the benefit of antenna diversity because this antenna has less gain than the original.. In other words, I wouldn't do it.. :) Check "alofthobbies" for buying a replacement antenna for ...

I don't see 3 folders inside voice. "system, user, and modelNames? Do I make my own modelNames?
