Mike, are you planning an updated "release" version of ersky9xr_rom.bin with all these new fixes?

Re: Understanding mixer offset

Second attempt:

CH2 100 Ele
+ -30 HALF
Sw ELE, Ofst 0

This seems to work better. Only minor issue is the max down elevator PWM is less than 2000 (1850).

I also restricted it to work only with the flight MODES I might use for launching.

Understanding mixer offset

I want to add a small amount of up elevator on launch using the ELE switch. This mix produces a result by lowering the pwm from 1500 (mid point) except the max pwm is much lower than the required 2000. CH2 100 Ele + -30 sELE Ofst -30 I had to decrease both the weight AND Offset otherwise the mid pos...

The temperature values (since they are expected to be temperatures) are treated as 16-bit signed integers, so range from -32768 to + 32767.

Big enough for me.
I also created a big scaler to see how it displayed 5 digits.

Re: Frsky telemetry from iNav - mAh values not correct

While debugging the iNav flight mode and GPS telemetry, I have a custom page set up showing T1= and T2=.
Can you pls confirm the maximum number of digits that can be displayed for these 2 variables? I am concerned that the numbers coming through may be truncated.

Please explain exactly what you mean by adding the flight mode names to the mixer pages. What numbers are you seeing for T1?

Now I see the importance of the mode order. Could you not add the flight mode names to the Mixer pages for the channel which controls the flight modes?

Having solved the mAh issue from iNav, I am hoping Mike can throw some light on why the Fmd value is always showing as zero on the radio telemetry page.

"Global" model limits?

I am setting up a model for an iNav plane. iNav expects all PWM values to be between 1000 and 2000.
Currently I have restricted the minimum and maximum on every used channel using the Limits page (-98/+98)
Is there a simpler way to achieve this via a single "global" setting for the model?

Frsky telemetry from iNav - mAh values not correct

I have recently installed a Matek 411-WSE in a sub 250gm wing which necessitated using iNav.

I tried clearing and adding the mAh sensor on t...

iNav telemetry via 9XR Pro / XJT / Bluetooth

My current build is using Inav so I was interested to see if telemetry could be displayed on the 9XR Pro. Up to now, I have been using Arduplane. It took some time to sort the wiring between the F411 the R-XSR, and iNav settings for the receiver and Smartport, but eventually I was able to show Fvas ...

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 ...

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 :)
