Re: Retract servo programming

I've experimented some more but it seems that the servo can only do the full traverse.
I've ordered a new (standard) servo.
Thanks,

Retract servo programming

I have a retract servo that I am trying to set up to swing the canard on a Beech Starship. As a retract servo, the arm rotates 180 degrees but as a wing swinger, I want only 90 degrees. Is it possible to configure this in ErSky9x? (I have tried many combinations of full/half, limits etc without succ...

Re: eepskye 422 Linux version

The downloaded GitHub zip with the latest eepskye source seems to be lacking Makefiles for eepe and eepskye.

Re: Throttle Stick loosing its calibration?

This issue (with the mode 1 rudder stick) has just been pointed out to me today by another 9XRPro user at our field. I reckon it must be a hardware problem as the other user and I are using quite different versions of ERSky9x. Could you please confirm that the proper fix is to open the Tx and check ...

Re: Turnigy QBot radio adapter

The QBot adapter only has 3.7V.
Still no joy with the Futaba cable with r221 etc so I will give up on that and just stick with JR.
Thanks for the inputs,

Re: Turnigy QBot radio adapter

OK. I'm on r220 but will update to r221 ASAP and then try the Futaba cable again. Given the comment regarding the Tx wiring it may still not work. That's not a big deal as the JR set up works. On a side issue, when using the JR cable, the rudder channel is not centred on the main page display even t...

Re: Turnigy QBot radio adapter

Using the JR-style trainer cable, all is now AOK but I cannot get the Futaba cable to work. As I understand it, the only big difference between the cables is that Futaba includes power and that is why it has so many pins. Plugging in the Futaba cable does not turn the Tx on so I have been trying Mik...

Re: Turnigy QBot radio adapter

Sorry for not replying earlier but I had to go interstate for a few days. The solution seems to be along the lines suggested but the trainer setting seems redundant. I set the module to JR mode, turned on the module power and plugged it in using the JR cable with the Tx off. This turns on the Tx and...

Re: Throttle stick reversed on one Tx

Thanks Mike.
I've never used the hardware menu before but found that the throttle was reversed there.
Is it possible that this could have been done by a previous firmware update? I have seen strange unexpected changes when updating before.
(Now on r220.)

Throttle stick reversed on one Tx

I have two 9XR Pro transmitters that are to all intents identical. However, on one of them, the throttle stick direction is reversed. That is, zero throttle is at the top and full throttle at the bottom. I have checked and rechecked that none of the throttle configuration settings is set to reverse:...

Re: Where to get the source for r422?

Some progress:-)) The error above is apparently due to some differences in the various C++ libraries about the place. The ambiguity can be resolved by changing the references to abs() in node.cpp to std::abs(). The next minor issue is that the zip from github includes a 32-bit version of file.o in t...

This is a bit weird! I installed Qt5 and got 5.7.1.

I don't understand how 5.7.1 vs 5.0.2 or...

Re: Where to get the source for r422?

I have finally worked out that the download from er9x is just a 32-bit binary and the source comes from github. If I install the current 32-bit Qt libraries, the 32-bit binary (r421) from er9x works well on my 64-bit F25 box. If I build a 64-bit version of eepe 422, it also works well. However, a 64...

I'm using Qt 4.8.7 on one box and 4.8.6 on another.

My 9XR Pro has ersky9x-r220 V1766-Mike 4/12/2017 10:24:43 REVB.

If I navigate to the Radio Setup/Date-Time page and set the current date and time values, pressing MENU LONG does nothing and the date stays at midnight on 1/1/2000.
