Re: Pc administration problem

The trouble with something new is you may have to learn a bunch of new terminology and vernacular. This is true going from one piece of software to another. So you need to clarify some things and I'll try to help but we need to be on the same page. OpenTx generally refers to the firmware/operating s...

Re: 9XR+DJT Module= SBus... did this work ?

That is not a FrSky receiver and may have some compatibility issues. There have been some problems associated with clone receivers. I think some have had either SBus or SPort problems reported. I do not believe FrSky makes a D8 rx with SBus. The D8 protocol is considered to be obsolete as far as new...

Yep, X9D vs X9D+ has been a problem for quite a few users. Now the X9D+2019 will make it even more confusing.

A common problem is the downloading of firmware for the X9D instead of that for the X9D+. This will cause symptoms that sound like yours.

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.

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 ...

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
