Re: sky9x rev. B1 power issue

Suggestion, you may want to look at your main power switch for the problem. Thank you. I disassemble it and spray it with a similar product, but there is no change. I don't know if it was the same for you, but when it doesn't work, my FrSky module beeps and the red light at the back is on, making m...

Re: sky9x rev. B1 power issue

MY FAULT :o The battery of my voltmeter is deplated and i didn’t realised that. All my voltages measures were wrong, i’m sorry for this stupid mistake :? I confirm that the output of the regulator is a stable 3.3V The replacement of the regulator maybe useless but at least we know it is not faulty a...

Re: sky9x rev. B1 power issue

Thanks a lot !

I'll buy 4.7uF capacitors for the test.

And i have a 2S LiFe battery that i will use for the test.

I tried the LiFe battery as is but the regulator output is still a 4.5V

Can you confirm me this is what i need to do :

Re: sky9x rev. B1 power issue

I have received the new 3.3 regulator and replaced it on the board.

Unfortunately, the problem remains.
With this new regulator i read 4.50v on the 3.3 pins.
It maybe a bit more than with the previous one.

The behaviour of the radio startup has not changed :(

Re: sky9x rev. B1 power issue

Does the regulator get quite hot when this happens? I did the test : i leaved the radio in bad "powered up" state for about 3 minutes (module has beeped, screen stays blank, and 3.3 pin are measured at 0.40V), but the heatsink of the regulator stays cold. Once managed to boot up (On/Off cycle), i s...

That is a bit too much, it should read about 3.3V, that is nearly 1 volt too much. I think you will have to replace that 3.3V regulator..
Thanks.
Do you know where i the BOM of the sky9x board is available somewhere so i can look for the regulator reference ?

Re: sky9x rev. B1 power issue

210 mA with my FrSky DJT module installed.

You read well ;) that was a solid 4.30V
Before writing this new message i did the test once more : now i read 4.02V (My voltmeter is accurate)

Re: sky9x rev. B1 power issue

The bootloader is 2.1 When connecting to the PC through USB, the scenario is stable : the radio screen always shows the bootloader with "Connecting" after about 10 secs.

I'm not sure why you get the Bad EEPROM data screen, but other than that, the radio started correctly.
This is "normal", i previously flashed it with OpenTX before this test.

If you're unsure about the oscillator, maybe i can replace it if it is cheap, i don't take a huge risk i guess ?

What happens if you power the radio on, then wait at least 10 seconds, does it then start.
No, i can leave the radio like that for minutes, it won't power on, until i switch it off/on again.

The 2nd test is OK : i get the "USB" screen, the SD Card is not mounted and the COM port is accessible

sky9x rev. B1 power issue

Hi, i'm taking back my modified T9X radio after 2 years of break and it doesn't power on very well. The 2S LiPo is good (fully charged, 8.4V measured at output), i can hear the beep from the FrSky module, but the radio does not power on. I have to switch it off and on again, then it powers up.

Re: Aurora gimbal usable ?

Thanks a lot, here are the results:
pots_min.jpg
pots_max.jpg
Like you were expecting, some sticks have their min/max values, about a half millimeter before their stop, it's very small, but it's a kind of "dead zone".
So the gain of 2 seems to be the best compromise.

Re: Aurora gimbal usable ?

Thanks for the explanation.

If someone is able to calculate the ADC_CGR/ADC_COR values for a gain of 4 (i'm not :? ) i will tell what are the resulting ranges for the sticks so we know.
But like you said, i agree that it won't make any noticeable difference for the pilot.
