Re: TBS Tango Radio

What firmware does that thing run? If it doesn't run something opensource, then to me it's not even worth considering.

Re: Being able to move curve points along X axis

Aha, so that's the reason! Makes sense :)
That's great news, I'll give it a go.
But so that means that, currently, er9x users are out of luck? Or is this portable/did it get ported to er9x as well?

Being able to move curve points along X axis

Sorry if I'm repeating an old question. I searched for this, but couldn't find anything. I'd like to create a roll/pitch curve for "super acro", being a setup with very high rates in betaflight. What I'd like to achieve is scale the curve down linearly, giving it a lower weight so that the curve is ...

Re: Flysky TH9X with 9xtreme board troubles

Is the CPU on the 9xtreme ESD protected or does it go directly to the output pins (for example on the external JR bay)?
I don't suppose there are any public diagrams available of the 9xtreme? :oops:

Re: 9XTREME W/Freerider or Liftoff

I upgraded the bootloader using the maintenance menu, with a freshly compiled ersky9x bin on the SD card, and that solved my problem. At first I was a little confused as to whether the bootloader code was integrated inside the firmware bin file, or whether it was a separate file (eg. the lbm file). ...

Re: 9XTREME W/Freerider or Liftoff

You access the SD card either in bootloader mode over USB (which you are having trouble with), or by removing it from the 9Xtreme and plugging it in to the PC directly. If you do the latter, you may at least copy new firmware to the \FIRMWARE directory, then replacing the SD card, then using the bo...

Re: Adding MAVLINK support

When this is in a stable enough state, this "MAVLINK over FrSky" bridge could probably be integrated into APM directly.
