Re: Taranis Signal Interference With Bluetooth Audio?

I have Bluetooth modules installed INSIDE all my radios, along side with frsky or multiprotocol modules. never had a loss of control.. If your model is electric than I think the ESC would have stopped the motor if the PWM from the receiver had stopped. That makes me possibly exclude an eventual brow...

Re: Using ER9X on Flysky 9X Tx with eePe Link software

We need more details please.
Which processor your radio has?
Which version of er9x did you download and where did you get it from?
You said you have a backlight, which backlight and how did you connect it?
How are you powering the radio? which battery?

Re: Jumper T12 Open Source 16ch Radio with JP4-in-1 Multi-protocol RF Module

Not the PRO. Frsky reached long ago an agreement with the company that produced the 9XR-PRO. Mike means that SPORT telemetry support will be disabled on the T12 until they reach an agreement with Frsky. The SPORT telemetry is not open, so any other commercial product can only use it if allowed by fr...

Re: X7 - LDO or CPU broken

2.66V might mean that something is using too much current and overloading the regulator. It could be the CPU itself as Kilrah also mentioned :(
But yes, a close inspection could reveal some problem. try disconnecting stuff like the gimbals, etc.

Re: X7 - LDO or CPU broken

Yeah, I know at least one regulator that lets pass the input voltage to the output if the output was shorted. No short circuit protection. It happened to me. I think there is a reversed diode between the output and input, and if it goes bad, normally it shorts. This regulator could also suffer from ...

Re: X7 - LDO or CPU broken

well, something could be pulling a lot of current. It could be the processor, or it could be something else.. and if this is the case, replacing the regulator will probably not fix the problem. I could be wrong of course.. :)

If the CPU is that hot you could have short(s) between two or more of its pins, or somewhere else on the board..

Re: OpenTX 2.0.0

I think you would better use Er9x on your 9x radio. OpenTX developers are not developing for it anymore. Er9x is still being developed and maintained. and it has support for the multiprotocol module as well..

Just use your custom screens and forget about the other data. The flight controller might just be sending random values for the fields that don't have sensors, I think.

Re: Non invert Attiny 85 led driver.

Well, I didn't look at the code yet (not at the PC), but now that you mention it, the LED can be connected from the VCC rail to the pin, or from the pin to Ground. This could explain the inversion you are seeing. If the LED is connect to VCC, the pin will connect to ground to turn it ON. If the LED ...

Re: Non invert Attiny 85 led driver.

Drive an N Mosfet directly from the ATtiny pin, or a P channrel Mosfet from an NPN transistor. In this case, base of the transistor to the Microcontroller pin, emitter to ground, and.collector to the Mosfet gate..
Place an 100K resistor between source and gate so the Mosfet can turn off..

Thanks Mike.. I think I found a suitable Mosfet in my components box :) AO3401, which was used on the first Ar9x board (I think), and then replaced with the AO3407A. Both are identical, but the 07A has a higher maximum Vgs, 20V against 12V from the AO3401. The 3401 has a lower Gate threshold voltage...

Just a note, Ersky9x, which is a more advanced version of Er9x (more features) also runs on Frsky radios. The menus layout is basically the same, so you wouldn't have to get use to something else.

A BJT is controlled by current, so won't turn on unless something actively pushes current through it. Well, as I said above, I have seen the opposite.
