Re: Throttle messed up on QX7 for one model

In the mixes you have throttle cut set to SHup.
Since that is the normal position, the throttle is cut unless you hold SHdown.

You probably meant to use SF.

Re: Telemetry without flight controller

AR610 is a 6 channel Spektrum receiver. It has no Aux2. Aux2 is Channel 7 in Spektrum/JR terminology. (T,A,E,R, Gear=ch5, Aux1=ch6,Aux2=ch7,Aux3=ch8 and are JR/spektrum channel outputs.) For FrSky (in glittering generalities;-) 1. SBus is the channel information sent from the receivers to servos or ...

Re: QX7 no switches after update to 2.2.4

How are you determining that SF and SH do not work? I've loaded Doc2.otx into Companion 2.2.4 and tested it. The channel monitor shows SF and SH working correctly. This means the transmitter should be capable of sending sending the data If the flight controller isn't responding, I'ld say it is fligh...

Re: QX7 no switches after update to 2.2.4

in the first model you use 'arm' and 'Arm' in Inputs. and in mixes you use I5:arm. To most software (not google) Arm and arm are two different things. The Ix: tells MIXES to use the INPUTS definition(s) from slot x. If in hardware settings it is arm, try changing the Arm in MIXES to arm and swF shou...

Re: QX7 no switches after update to 2.2.4

You do not have to put the switches in INPUTS. It doesn't hurt, but it does no good either. To use the INPUTS for switches in a mix you we need to use I7 in the mix as source, not SC for channel7. Here is how an Input and Mix would look if you used Inputs to define your SWF in INPUTS and used in in ...

Re: First timer issues on QX7

on channel use 'cut' 1 on the Thr line, then you can 'paste' it to chn3.
The same kind of operation you would use on WORD or SpreadSheet.
No quick way to do it that I know of.

Re: First timer issues on QX7

I think the Mixes order is wrong.
The mix order should AETR for the iRange 4in1. Internal it remaps the channels to Spektrum/JR order unless it is a very old 4in1 module

Re: Question on switches

A two position switch is emulated by using SA(up) and not SA(up), i.e. !SA(up). The weight is automatically determined and need not be specified. Weight normally is set for INPUTS or MIXES. So if you wanted to use the switch to control a channel output you would normally do something like this: Ch7 ...

I think it would be easiest for someone to help if you posted your .otx.
If you do be sure to note which model you are working on.

I'm guessing it is a setup error, provided you have the same model servos and the location of pushrods are in the same control horn locations

In MIXES they are normally additive, although they can be changed to multiply or replace. Replace does exactly that, it replaces all mixes before the mix that is replace. This is not true in INPUTS.
