IRangeX 4in1 Plus fw flashing.

I have successfully constructed a Blade 230S v2 model for the Taranis X9D and flight tested it. I intend to write it up, but for now feel free to contact me via PM if you need information.

ERSKY9X Coding

Thank you Mike and Joao for getting me back on track. The X9-Lite appears to be unscathed by its encounter with reverse voltage. Here’s the story. I’ve explained how I managed to misinterpret the polarity markings and connect a 6 cell NiMH battery (for the QX7) to the wrong battery springs. When tur...

Re: ERSKY9X Coding

Thanks Mike. Totally my fault. I misinterpreted the polarity (despite checking three times!) and applied reverse voltage. Now with correct polarity, I see the “OpenTX” screen but then it blanks out and shuts down. Slight noises while this is happening. No obvious signs of burnt components. I have an...

Re: ERSKY9X Coding

Hi Mike Just received an FrSky X9 Lite. It looks and feels fine but does nothing when the button is pushed to turn it on (powered with six NiMH while I wait for 18650). Presumably, it's necessary to load ERSkyTX before anything works. I put the xlite file into a FIRMWARE folder om the SD card and tr...

Re: IDLE switch for winches

Just for information. The switch you are talking about has nothing to do with idle. It’s usually simply referred to as the “three-position switch”. The three positions are called ID0, ID1, ID2. Or when the switch is used to control Flight Mode they are called N, 1, 2. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

Re: Onboard Glow Igniter With ATtiny85

Will rather use switching voltage regulator, as you do, just focus on 1.5V on its output with no manual calibration or adjusting to any particular plugs. It should work with all glow plugs currently on the market. :). All the modern plugs I know of are designed for 1.2v. I’m not saying they won’t t...

Re: Onboard Glow Igniter With ATtiny85

Plugs certainly were made for 2v, but we’re talking quite a few years ago.

Onboard Glow Igniter With ATtiny85

Plugs are (or were) made specifically for 2.0v lead acid cells, 1.5v carbon-zinc cells (such as the big old #6 cells), and 1.2v NiCd (not in those days NiMH) cells. Most of the ones available today are designed for 1.2v. I would expect that running them on 1.5v constantly would shorten their life. B...

Re: Model saved when flashing?

No, but it’s a really good idea to make a backup in case something goes wrong. I’ve never lost a model when upgrading.

Note that you will need to check each model if the update is from an old version.

Yes, I’ve had to go to a regular browser to access RCGroups for a week or two. Tapatalk does work with it (though it’s OK here).

You’re quite right. The LM0030 provides only altitude telemetry, not vario. The LM0052 provides both.

Re: I have searched and read and tried for 2 days to get the 9xr pro to work

The 9XR Pro was designed to use ErSky9x. It could at one time use OpenTX as well, but I believe the newer versions of OpenTX are no longer compatible.

ErSky9x will do the job.

Phoenix comes with a dongle for the trainer port that enables your transmitter to plug into the USB port. The dongle provides copy protection.

No dummy transmitter is supplied, though they did used to sell a package of Phoenix with a DX5e.

Re: Replaced gimbal - now can't enter Bootloader.

Version 2.0 and later, but I would suggest at least 2.1.19 for a good stable and advanced version. While you’re at it, why not go for 2.2?

The DX4e units were all DSM2/DSMX. There may have been some early DX5e units that were DSM2 only, but from about 2011, with the advent of DSMX, the two transmitters shared the same 6-channel RF section with the DX6i. Since the DX5e is the transmitter supplied, until recently, with the RTF version of...

Re: FrSky Taranis Special Edition Low RSSI (Crash)

I have one of the very first batch of X9Ds sold in North America by Aloft in July 2013. Still going strong after more than five years. I’ve upgraded the sticks but never touched the electronics.

I’ve mostly used it with ErSky9x, though at the moment it’s on OpenTX as I experiment with version 2.2.

Instant Trim works well and doesn’t require critical timing. It just requires you to hold the stick(s) so the models flies level and then throw the switch. It’s easiest with a fixed wing model flown in mode 2 because mainly you’re focused on the right stick. With other modes and types of model, the ...

The 9XR uses ER9X firmware, while the 9XR Pro has a more powerful processor and uses ErSky9x. The two systems are closely related and most of what applies to one works with the other, but they are not interchangeable. For a broad understanding of how the firmware works, download the ER9X manual: htt...
