Re: What else can I upgrade in my radio?

I don't want to scare you at all, just to remind you that you will really need to pay attention to the way you solder the encoder to the 9x mainboard.. If those diodes are supposed to.be connected across the motor pins, then the cathode (black ring) connects to positive.. João Sent from my BLN-L21 u...

Re: What a great package this OpenTx

Yep, open source rocks.. I use ErSky9x instead, which is equally powerful.. :)
For example on my IC powered models, I use a pot to tune the engine idle, instead of the trim switch. I find it quicker to set by the right amount, when needed ;)

Re: What else can I upgrade in my radio?

I think Mike said that I already used all the connectors in the 9xtreme. I have bluetooth and I have haptic in process... So I think the only option I have soldering to the processor. I will make some small PCB too for it. In that case you will have to connect the encoder exactly as I did on my boa...

Re: What else can I upgrade in my radio?

The encoder normally should be connected to some processor pins through some resistors. But as you have the 9xtreme board, I think might might have a simpler solution using the I2C connection and an extra little arduino board.. I believe he mentioned it somewhere. Please watch this video carefully. ...

Re: 9XR and xjt with telemetry

Sorry, I was confused. For a moment I thought you had the 9XR-PRO radio. But it seems you have the old 9XR.
That is what I get for not paying full attention to what I am reading. I do apologize again.

Definitely, specially if it could also be applied to other radios :)

Mike, by placing the interpreter.exe file in the eepskye directory, why not accessing it from eepskye itself? ;)
Or does it work like that already? ;) :)

That was my first thought also, but then I had the feeling he was talking about the radio itself.. Language barrier probably.

Re: Simple Current sensor telemetry for 9xr pro

You need to measure the current from the radio itself? If so the radio, at least with Ersky9x, already measures its own current because it has already a sensor. It is R9 on the PCB where the module pins are. This sensor gets broken quite easily though and some 9XR-PRO radio users had to solder a wir...

Haven't we all??
For example, I think it was the first time I have seen damaged processor pins (with buttons) start working with external pullup resistors. I think this fix was attempted in the past, but it never worked. I might be wrong though, but I just don't remember :)

Re: 9XR(AT128) bricked, HVPP unbriked and then briked again.

Reading the table you posted above we can see that the pins 11, 12 and 13 are sinking the voltage to ground. So it means they are damaged. Probably when doing the HV programming or by some ESD.. Perhaps adding a 10K resistor as Mike suggested could make them work but I gotta say, I have seen this pr...

Re: 9XR(AT128) bricked, HVPP unbriked and then briked again.

I tend to agree with you on getting another chip.
Your resistance readings seem normal.
Can you do something else please?
Measure the voltage on pins 11, 12, and 13, while the radio is ON of course :) buttons pressed, and not pressed.
Be careful not to short anything you shouldn't ;)

Re: Long shot but does anyone have a 9xtreme board FS?

I don't know why, but I find a NiMh battery more adequate for a TX than a LiPo battery. Perhaps because I would never charge a LiPo battery while in the radio..But I would charge a NiMh without any problems..

You might have damaged the pins while removing the chip from the board, or during the HV programming.. Did you use them for the HV programming?

But that is not a LiPo battery, it is a NiMh battery pack.. Still, you need to know what is the minimum voltage the Taranis accept. if it has low dropout regulators you are ok, if not, you might need 7V minimum. Also, you need to consider the minimum voltage from any external RF module you connect t...
