Re: Help with Heli setup

Thanks Mike, I have 220 already loaded in the ones here I am looking after, I was just making sure that there wasn't a new version out, that's fine.

Re: Help with Heli setup

Dropping this query into this thread, as it's probably better than creating a new thread. Is the latest firmware version for the Pro 220 or 221? I've just looked at the er9x site as linked above, and the page says it's 220, and 221 is mentioned above, the file itself is no help in that respect in th...

9XR Pro interface to use RCflightsim.com Clearview simulator

Have 9XR Pro transmitters using the latest version of the software, and we're wanting to get them working with Clearview Simulator to get our helicopter circuit techniques up to speed. Anyone any experience with making this work, and if you have, what are the options. We're have the option of FRSky ...

Heli sim for use with 9XR Pro

Ok, so we're making slow progress with the big Bell 212's that are being restored and converted from IC power to electric power, but the next hurdle is proving more challenging, and what we'd like to do is get a suitable sim package that will work with ER9x on the pro, so that we can become more com...

EEPE and Microsoft Edge, Smart filter blocking download

Just a heads up for people forced to use Microsoft products, especially Windows 10 and Edge, their wretched smart filter won't allow you to download the EEPE software from the Er9X site, the simplest way round it for now (it worked for me) is to use an alternative browser like Firefox.

Re: Search for Replacement 9x Potentiometers!

Thanks, I've since discovered the HK Daily video about them, and that they can be "teased" into a 9X, which is even more useful. as I have a couple of 9X sets that have to be sorted, sticks bad, and some Sky boards to go into them, so this looks like a useful way to go, as it gets rid of the pot iss...

Mike.
Perfect thanks.

There's one possible query, there seems to be 2 alternatives for the ER9X standard versions, the first line, and the 8th line down. Not an issue for me, but it might save some pain for others.

Cheers

Re: XJT, X8R firmware update using 9xrpro

To update the firmware on a SPort device, it must be the only Sport device on the SPort. This means you can only update a receiver or sensor if the XJT module is NOT plugged in. In addition, even the XJT needs to be external as it only looks for a possible firmware update request for a short time a...
