Taranis X9D & DSMX hack

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: Taranis X9D & DSMX hack

Which receiver? The Apprentice S originally had an E-Flite SAFE receiver but now uses an AR636. I do know that the E-Flite receiver did not work with the DM9. This was acknowledged by Spektrum. Does the modified DM9 you have use a DSM2 module from an early DX5e or a DSMX from a later one? It would n...

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.

Re: Lua script for automatic trims

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...

As I recall, the DX6i has an inverted trainer signal.

The X7 internal module is identical to the external XJT. As for logical functions, you don’t need to learn everything at once.

It depends on what you’re trying to accomplish. Your current setup using a Spektrum module in a Taranis X7 is perfectly viable but limited to 6 channels and 1024 resolution. I’m guessing it’s a DSM2 module, so moving up to DSMX or FrSky would gain you a more robust protocol, which seems to be your m...

On all of mine “Lock” is write protect. It does not prevent the micro card from falling out, as can be tested by pulling on it.

For those seeking to use the new capability of setting the Safety Switch override more precisely, there’s an important caveat: if you have a module using Multiprotocol, the pulse width value you need to set is 947uS (not the expected 980uS). The reason is that the Multi module squeezes down the puls...

I would not suggest an FrSky receiver in your situation. The AR636 is a stabilized receiver. Depending on your flying skills, you probably want a stabilized receiver to replace it. You could go for the S6R, but it’s fairly complex to set up. Your least expensive but very good solution is a LemonRX S...

Fine tune rockers locked how to unlock?

“Haven’t got any mixes.”
With ER9X, etc., you’ve always got mixes. They are what’s found on the Mixer page. Without mixes, nothing happens.
You’re thinking about traditional radios, where “mixes” are something optional that you use to do things like couple the rudder to aileron action.
