Weight or End Points?

When setting up a new model and once I have mechanically set the control surface throws as best I can to the model manufacturers specifications, I fine tune the final desired movements on the Tx. As far as I can see there are two ways to do this. Either by adjusting the weight or the end points. Wha...

Re: Archer SR series Custom failsafe autolevel not working

I was reading this https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthr ... rs-Release
Others are reporting the same problem. Frsky have acknowledged it's a bug and intend to fix it at next FW release.

Access Protocol: Rx Registering

I have a new Access Rx and two Access Tx's. I want to register the Rx with both Tx's. I don't have a problem doing that. But my question is about adding new models. The Registration function is in the Model Setup menu. Does that mean that only that Model entry in the Tx's will be registered with the...

Re: SR10 Pro - Channels?

Penny has dropped.........

So, for example, channel 13 could be assigned to pin 9 and channel 14 to pin 10. Thus preserving the pins as being usable. Have I got this right?

SR10 Pro - Channels?

Just bought one of these new Archer receivers. There are 10 PWM outputs but the manual appears to have been created by cut n pasting the channel configuration from the S8R manual. For instance, channel 9 for gain, channel 10 (Quick Mode) for flight modes. How can this be so when these channels have ...

The region of ACCESS modules is not stored in the firmware anymore, so the same module firmware will transmit either one depending on what the hardware was set to.

The region of your radio is displayed on the version screen when the internal module is enabled.
I know the radio region. What I don't know is why the ISRM FW doesn't have FCC / LBT versions but the Rx FW does.

ACCESS D16 FW Version?

I've got one of the newer Tx's (X9D Lite) that has the ACCESS protocol. Recently, the D16 protocol has been added. My question is what ACCST FW version of D16 is this using? If it's the newer v2.1.0 then I guess I'm going to have to upgrade the FW in my Rx's for everything to work together.

X9D Lite has ACCESS set as protocol. QX7 has ACCST set as protocol. Both have the same default RSSI warning values. Are you saying 35 and 32 are safe?

On a typical 7 min flight with my Max Thrust Riot I'm getting 4 or 5 voice warnings. Not flying too far out. I'll lower the settings to 35 and 32 respectively next...

The first line of your L1 text does not match the input lines for Companion 2.2.1

The line begins with the name L01, not L1. After that the inputs do not match. Attached is a screen shot of the Logical input screen from Companion 2.2.1 in QX7 profile.
