Re: Is this receiver compatible with the Irangex multi-module?

In my opinion you won't need gyros, you need someone to teach you how to fly. You do it alone, with or without gyros, you will crash it at best, or injure someone, yourself, or damage some property at worse. Get an RC simulator for your computer. But the most important is as I mentioned above, find...

Is this receiver compatible with the Irangex multi-module?

Hi guys, mi wife told me I am getting my first rc plane for my birthday and I am super afraid of crashing it. I have read a lot about gyros and definitelly I am going to need one. I have seen 2in1 gyro and receiver: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000178317639.html?spm=a2g0o.cart.0.0.4fc83c00bbsxDS...

Re: What else can I upgrade in my radio?

Yes, always backup your radio's eeprom regularly.. Basically every time you change something. You can backup the eeprom to the computer (recommended), and also to the SD Card. As you might also know, you can backup models to the card or computer. João Will do! Both, no doubt of it. Some of the mode...

Re: What else can I upgrade in my radio?

Well, at least you tried, thank you very much for all the effort.

I will setup the radio and then I will create eeprom copies, no prob. Live and learn!

At the other hand, this is how my radio is looking at this very moment. It might not be super clean, but there is not a lot I can do with so many wires.

Anyway I am very happy with the end result :)

Re: What else can I upgrade in my radio?

Hi, I just attached the file here.
When connecting the radio to the computer, I have seen not all of the models are gone.

Anyway, the most importan question is: Why that eeprom error?

But no probs, I will take it as a way of super clean instalation and I will start from the very beginning again.
But i will make safe copies, lol.

Re: What else can I upgrade in my radio?

You have the encoder connected to the analog inputs (A2, A3 and A4), not the digital inputs (2, 3 and 4) that are down the opposite edge of the board. The display shows correct communication. Mike Correct! I soldered them right and it WORKS!!! THANK YOU Mike and Joao for all the help along the year...

Hi, I just flashed the new erskytx version, and I took a pic of the debug mode, and also of my arduino. Maybe you can see something wrong.

Have you flashed the radio with "erskyTxR222D7" ?

Hi Mike,

Yes, I have flashed it. So far the arrows work, but the rotary and the central button dont. Not sure if I have to activate something.

Re: What else can I upgrade in my radio?

Hi guys, I think I did it! Or at least part of it! I managed to install the encoder, and the 4 arrows are working great! But the rotation andthe button do nothing. I guess I have to do something in the hardware menu, right?

I am super excited, close to finishing the radio! :D

Re: What else can I upgrade in my radio?

For the encoder, the switch goes to IO4 and the two encoder signals go to IO2 and IO3. If the encoder "goes the wrong way", swap these last to signals over. The encoder and its switch also need a ground connection. I'll post a test version of erskyTx on the test versions thread, first post. Mike Th...

Well, meanwhile the arduino chip took short time to arrive, the connector is still not here...

Try powering it from 5V-6V on the "RAW" input and measure VCC, it should be 3.3V.

I've just posted a "D7" with the SPI encoder support included.

Amazing, seems doable. Thanks Mike.
I ordered that arduino board and the connector. it will take one month until it arrives, but I will put my hands over it as soon as it is here.

Thank you very much for saving me soldering the micro processor! I am a bit more relieved now.
