The Project Design Concept

I realized I had never talked about the "WHY?!" of this project. Where my main build thread is over on RCG, they know about most of my other projects. It is in the sailboat forum. I could much more easily just grabbed a Jumper T18 Pro and have been done with it. In fact at this point I have enough i...

Re: 9XR-Pro into Vintage Futaba FP Build, questions and progress pics!

I agree! There have only been a couple items that I had trouble finding and seemed out of place. For the most part, SUPER easy to find what you are looking for! I went through all this trouble, BECAUSE I wanted to use this firmware on my radio. Especially with the limitations of trying to keep it lo...

Re: 9XR-Pro into Vintage Futaba FP Build, questions and progress pics!

Sweet! Trim buttons are sorted and installed! The "should" be working but I haven't actually tested them yet. I can do that here shortly though. EDIT: Well, mostly working... For some reason, the throttle stick trims were only moving in one direction. After resoldering it twice, I now have the throt...

Re: HELP PLEASE! Possible encoder issue, don't want to fry the new board...

Mike I am running your ersky9xr version with the encoder updates. Will this be ported over into that too? This is JUST the ticket! But don't want to loose the encoder bits to get it.

Re: 9Xr-Pro navigation and other questions

Okay so with some tweaks, the encoder does 98% of what the nav buttons do. MikeB made a couple changes to the firmware. AUPER HAPPY! Too many functions on this utilize the trims. I will do away with the Futaba ratchet trims. Still leaves me with two sliders and a pot. So the 3 the 9XR comes with. Ha...

Re: HELP PLEASE! Possible encoder issue, don't want to fry the new board...

Might as well leave it then. I have a bunch of HC-05 and/or HC-06 modules. Not sure what I would need bluetooth for, I can crash my planes perfectly fine without help. :mrgreen:

[expletive] I stumbled across a problem. I am not sure if I have a setting somewhere wrong, or if the software just can't do this. I can navigate all around the setup menus with the encoder.

Re: 9XR-Pro into Vintage Futaba FP Build, questions and progress pics!

And YES the encoder gives FULL navigation functionality! I am almost ready to swapperoo. The next step to work on is the trim buttons. Looks like I’m going to have to use them....

Re: Switch feedback and power wiring issues in 9XR-P case mod project

BTW, I GOT IT WORKING!!! I decided to stick with an electron plan of attack I am proficient in. I used a micro relay. I added a 3pin JST to the top of the 5v regulator and grabbed ground, switched battery, and 5v there (not using the 5v yet, but I probably will). I used that ground and the switched ...

There must be a dozen threads and posts on this.
