Re: Frsky RB 10 telemetry slots error

I suggest you go to Delete all sensors and discover sensors. I have been using 2.1.9 for quite a while but did not have that problem. It happens that if you discover, and then make any change with the sensors, they may assume a different ID, and if you don't delete the previous you will have duplica...

Re: SD card files

I think that in github there is an explanation of which one you need to to use for each setup. It seems to me that you need the second in your description, as its specific for Horus.

Re: Help with receiver and cc3d open pilot board

I am not an expert on the i6x, and I have been working with the CC3D long time ago, but I can try to help you. When you say "when I connect the RX to the FC it doesn't show any signal", what are referring to: 1) the RX showed as linked before connecting to the FC? 2) the RX is linked but does not tr...

Re: Flight Modes frustradtiomr

Well, I am not familiar with Pixhalk, but regardless, the important part is that you are defining flight modes in the Pixh through Taranis CH5. I am not sure about CH5 PWM (which should be CH5 in your RX), appears as CH7 on SBUS. I am using SBus too, but I have not such a mismatch between PWM and SB...

I fully agree with Dean. Plus inexpensive, and given that he plans to use 4 channels, he will not need the decoder.

My view about the clones, and specially on FrSky equipement, is that the price difference will hardl...

Re: Flight Modes frustradtiomr

Vegas, it is not quite clear what is your environment, but it seems you are trying to define flight modes for a flight controller, and you are using 2 switches to generate 6 flight modes. I don't really know what you refer to "channel 7 ( sbus flight modes channel) is not moving when I try to edit"....

Re: TR battery

If you can fit that in your UAV is a good idea. Check range to determine if you will have you TX antenna in an horizontal plane or in a vertical plane to obtain max RSSI.

Well, honestly, I cannot give a reasonable answer to how the Sensor can affect the RSSI.

May be that have always happened and I didn't realize, given th...

Re: SP-FLVS causing radio interference?

Just for curiosity, check in the telemetry log RSSI vs RX voltage. I guess you have the antennas at 90 degrees from each other. Anyway, I think the "bad guy" is the TX battery.

I have been using your config, including the X8R 5 years old, and V 2.0.0 and never had that kind of problem, but I did experience low RSSI, and re-charging the TX batt solved the problem. (I use a LiFe 3S for the X9D TX). However, keep an eye on the sensor, and install it not too close to the RX. A...

Re: Binding Problem

AArnaldo, if you have been using a previous version and had no problem, is great news. If that is the case, the most probable culprit is the FW version.

Re: Variable End Point?

I am assuming here your Gyro accepts an input for variable gain. The way to achieve that, is to assign the knob to a channel, and use that channel to control the gain. I have that implemented with a Hobby Eagle A3SII, and works just fine. Hopefully you have two free channels in the receiver (one for...

It looks you have a problem with the TX, or the FW in it. I have a X9D with X8R and never had the kind of problem. My best suggestion is to check with whoever supplied the TX. If with previous FW, you did not have the problem, then I would suggest you first downgrade to a previous version and check ...
