Re: Radioking TX18S Radio

Hi Mike .... very much appreciated .... I really do not mean to be ungrateful in my posts. I have 5 radios with your erXXX on them ... and the one TX18S with openTX on ... I load up erskyTX on it when you say there's a change ... test as much as I can ( I really am not that good at it ... ) then put...

Re: Radioking TX18S Radio

I have a strange problem comes up now and again ... Radio is on and I want to switch off .... I can use TWO buttons for instant OFF or my preferred way is ONE button with the slow switch off. I tend to think that anything 'computerised' prefers slow shut-down .... Anyway - I hit one button ... the s...

Re: Radioking TX18S Radio

Yes that's the rub ... where erskyTX is nice and straightforward - openTX splits Inputs and mixes. This split causes interactions that make it hard to find where an error lies. When setting up first simple 4ch model with openTX - I could not figure out why Trims were operating opposite to stick dire...

Re: Radioking TX18S Radio

As some know - I have tried erskyTX on the RK TX18S and it worked as per MikeB's advice. But my testing ability and knowledge is very limited - so I am waiting for someone more able to work with MikeB on it ... While waiting _ I have been trying to get along with OPENTX ... and the more I try to use...

Re: When the filament is getting caught (tangle) on the spool. (CR10 3D Printer)

The error comes about usually because when spool is first put to use ... or after use - the last few feet of filament 'twists' due to its being created and spooled at factory. I have this happen on near every spool till I realised why. New Spool - when freeing the end ... make sure the coils on the ...

Modification to RK TX18S 18650 battery holder

The Radioking TX18S has inbuilt charge facility - but its very slow and powered from USB C cable. In use - the rear of case gets warm so there is possibly a heat issue to note ... it is known that Jumper did not put charge into their later radios for such reason. I would like to be cautious and not ...

Re: KingRadio TX18S

I know that when I open eepsky - it asks if I want to update it .. I think it says R422 ? I say yes - it downloads but then fails to install saying corrupt.

I will download it from er9x page direct instead of via the app ... and try again.

In Bootloader mode with openTX .... you get two drives pop up ... both named TX18S but of course different drive letters ... first is the card and second I believe is the radio itself. I have not changed Bootloader ... when connected with erskyTX installed ......... the SD card comes up as just 'rem...

Re: KingRadio TX18S

OK ... if I install erskyTX for TX18S ...

What about SD card content ? Is there a replacement for that or does it use same as openTX ? Reason I ask is that when openTX is upgraded or changed - the SD card content needs change as well to match card ID to FW.

Anyone have any screen shots ?

Re: Radioking TX18S Radio

Personally - if you have a rear external module bay - buy a multi module for about $40 and plug that in ... saves messing about inside Tx ... and gives you a proper antenna.

I hope you do not mind ... but I posted the link to the erskyTX on the TX18S Facebook page. Hoping that those who really know how to use erskyTX can test. My use of is pretty simple level and I would not be able to advise / test as is required. If linking is not wanted - I can soon delete the link ....
