Re: Using FrSky S6R with ersky9x

I have located the script - shows up on page 8 of scripts but does not always appear if the page opens up on 8/12. Just stays blank with a black scroll band that will scroll downwards on the QX7. I have to scroll through all the pages back to 8 when S6R Configure finally appears at top. Managed to n...

Re: Using FrSky S6R with ersky9x

Can someone outline how to access to the menu selection for accessing Mike's .bas script for S6R configuration on a Taranis QX7. I have put the script in the telemetry folder on the SD card and have accidentally stumbled upon it once but can't get back to it. The only description I found for access ...

OK - will do. The volume bar on the stock screen is a nice addition too. Does the title/label change according to the P1 assignment?

Taranis QX7 - Rapid Logical Switch Cycling

Hi Mike I have been using ersky_r221e1 on my QX7 for a couple of months without any problems. When programming a Logical Switch sequence I find that when trying to select L1 - L9 in the right hand column that as soon as I scroll to L* it is rapidly cycling through LA_Z_0_9 about 1x per second and th...

Re: ERSKY9X Coding

About the total timer, thinking further, I can see at least one situation where the total timer would have to be reset.. when using a model as a template to another model. In this case the Total timer needs to be reset, so, yes in my opinion there should be 2 extra options: "Reset Total Timer", and...

Re: ER9X & QX7 - Missing Bind Menu

Thanks Mike.
(Face palm) I had switched between Open-TX and er9x a couple of times comparing the features with a preference for ER9X due to running it on a 9X fitted with Extreme Board. I picked up on the PPM/XJT change the first time but have overlooked it this time. Thanks.

I have loaded latest pre-release version of ER9X on my QX7. Everything seems to be there except the Protocols Page is missing stuff including Bind and Range Check menus. Should I just re-flash to fix the problem?

Did you ever turn your radio ON without the antenna connected to the RF module? Never. also, do you have other receiver you can test a...

Re: 9Xtreme Upgrade Board for 9x Radios

I generally try to maintain a sideways orientation. I just checked the SWR numbers. On range test it maintains a steady zero while the RSSI drops away with distance and reaches around 48-50 at 60 meters.

Re: Er9x Manual - Flight Battery Voltage Warning

Thanks for that clarification Mike.
I had it set correctly but for some reason (glitch) L1 and L3 were turning on immediately. So I scrolled the selection of switches L1 - L6 at the end of the L2 Line and when set back on L1 it suddenly started to work correctly with L1 and L2 turning on together.

Re: Frsky X Series "Hack" module

It should work if it will fit. The pins inside the module bay are accessible from the internal pads. Don't know why anyone would do that unless fitting a 9Xtreme board to handle the telemetry side of things. But then once a 9Xtreme board is installed the XJT works like a dream direct from the extern...

My fault - lazy old me. Got sick of disconnecting and reconnecting the USB cable every time and left it off until I wire in my XJT module. Found the comment in another thread that this causes the splash screen to go away. :)
