Re: Receiver numbers

So if I have understood you, it is important to first manually assign the Rx#, e.g. 7, that you want to use in the model/protocol page and then bind. That number is stored somehow in the physical receiver until it is changed by rebinding with a different number. In this example, multiple models can ...

Receiver numbers

I am trying to understand the corellation between the Rx # specified in the protocol page for an XJT module and a physical receiver. Since it is possible to have a single XJT module and bind multiple receivers to it, what is the significance of the Rx# and how is it initially assigned and subsequent...

Re: 9XR Pro dead :(

Fixed! Removed the burnt out resistor too..
Managed to unplug/plug in the various connectors using some thin nosed pliers.
It would have been a lot better if the wires were a little longer and not zip tied together.

Re: 9XR Pro dead :(

All the connectors are out of sight, on the back side (where R9 is). The wiring harnesses seem short and I am concerned that if I just pull the board hard I may damage something.
Do you release the board via the front of the radio?

Fitting the Taranis gimbals was easier than this :)

Re: 9XR Pro dead :(

Measure R9 on the RF module board, inside the radio of course, not inside the RF module :) it should read around zero Ohms, just like a short.. R9 is a current sensor, and normally is the first to blow if you short something. João Trying to get access to the front side of the rf module board to ins...

Connecting BT module to XJT?

Is it possible to connect a HC-05 to either the 3 S.port pins or the 4 serial pins on the rear of an XJT module? I have measured the voltage on both sets of pins to be 4.8v which is ok for my BT module.
If so, is it possible to pipe the Frsky telemetry data out through that connection?

Re: Flashing Frsky receiver firmware via 9XR Pro/XJT

Followed your instructions and selected Update SPort then applied 5v power to receiver when Finding device msg appears, but I also get
0087 4900 and stops. Green led is solid on receiver, no blue or red showing.

Re: Combining flight modes with auxiliary function switches

More details are now available in Arduplane v4 docs.
Selecting a flight mode by RCn_OPTION and a switch, overrides the current mode. Switching off reverts to previous mode.
Any free channel can be used.
This is currently only available in Arduplane v4.0.

Re: 9XR PRO FRSKY Telemetry

I increased the timeout to 4.5 and it has solved the problem. Any less and it gets worse.
In Ardupilot there is a way to prioritise telemetry packets, but it is done by group not individual items.

Combining flight modes with auxiliary function switches

With Ardupilot, it is possible to configure auxiliary functions on any channel using RCx_OPTION. Typically these would be controlling landing gear, camera trigger, etc. But they can also be used to initiate a flight mode such as RTL, Auto, etc. See: http://ardupilot.org/plane/docs/plane-auxiliary-fu...

Re: No telemetry from Matek F405-Wing

Turns out that the F405-Wing cannot handle inverted Smartport telemetry from the X8R. So 2 options: 1) telemetry adapter cable e.g. C&T 2) use a receiver that can provide a non-inverted Smartport signal -- either by design or soldering a wire to a pad or existing joint on the receiver circuit board....
