NOOB need help setting up Hobbyzone Sport Cub S

The rates and expo for three control surfaces (R, E, A) are controlled by the Rate switch on the transmitter (assuming you are using a DX4e, DX5e or DXe). The rates are 100% with the switch up (position 0) and approximately 70% with the switch down (position 1). On the MLPDSM, rates are controlled b...

Re: X9-Lite not powering on

I put a blob of solder on the positive end of one battery. But you need a good hot iron of adequate size to make sure you can do it quickly without overheating the battery. There are two slightly different types of battery: flat top and button top. The X9-Lite requires button top if you are to avoid...

Re: X9-Lite not powering on

The plastic battery holders have sharp edges and tend to tear the plastic covering on the batteries during insertion or removal. I used very fine sandpaper to take the edges off mine.

Taranis Q X7 shipped without microSD card slot??

The slot is for a MicroSD, thus quite small. That’s the card partly popped out.

Note that it’s called a “TF card” in the illustration in the manual.

Re: Problem binding X9 Lite with Bee Brain Lite

When first released, the X9-Lite was NOT compatible with D16 (ACCST) but only with the new ACCESS protocol. It was necessary to flash to new tx firmware to get D16 compatibility. I suspect this is still the case for many units in the pipeline. Go to FrSky-R.C.com and download the 190605 update for X...

First timer issues on QX7

That’s more like it!

Enjoy.

EDIT: I should add that if the Rx Channel Order in Radio Setup is correctly set to AETR, the Inputs page will show the channels in the same order. So the first line will read:

CH1: Ail I1 : Ail [etc.]

No confusion of channel numbering.

Bingo! I got my mix updated per the attached and it's working now! So basically in the mix, the first value should match the 'actual' channel order of the Rx which is TAER, but the 2nd part/column needs to show the order that the I-range apparently likes which is AETR. Very strange but Now I can ju...

First timer issues on QX7

The iRangeX and other Multiprotocol modules require the use of AETR as the standard channel order across all protocols. For DSM protocols, the module then translates to TAER order for transmission to the receiver. For your existing setup, you need to move the relevant mixes so they are associated wi...

Simply copy the file to the “Firmware” folder on the SD card. Then enter Bootloader mode by turning on the transmitter with the horizontal trims held together. Follow the menu to flash the firmware. It’s not obvious which version you are talking about. As I recall, the “original” firmware was r202 b...

Re: Model Artwork for Taranis

“Tarani” is better than “Taranis’s”, which is a singular possessive, as in “His Taranis’s screen was broken, so he couldn’t see the images at all.”
You could say “He had two Taranis transmitters.”

Re: Multiple antenas

It depends which is turned on for a given model. The point is just don’t ever disconnect either antenna if there’s any possibility that that RF unit might be turned on. In other words, the only time the external module’s antenna should be disconnected is when the module is removed, and the internal ...

Model Artwork for Taranis

The X9D for example has a significantly wider screen and higher resolution than the QX7. So the former can display these images while the latter can’t.

Opinion seems to differ on the plural of “Taranis”. :)

Re: ERSKY9X Coding

As I understand it, subtrims are not subject to Flight Mode. So you could transfer any FM0 trims to subtrim. But then the other FM trims would need to be reset.

I’ll have to think a bit about the implications of the new Instant Trim setup.

Definitely something for the manual

Re: Question on switches

Exclamation mark before switch name means “not”. So “!SA(up)” means either SA- or SA(down).

It’s not up so it must be either of the other two positions.

Thinking a bit more, it seems to me now that the main risk is indeed that the pilot might forget (or just not know) that Instant Trim is live.

On the other hand, I still can’t imagine a realistic scenario in which more than 25% correction (subtrim) would be needed via IT.

As implemented now, pressing the switch again will not restore the original setting. If the sticks are centred, it will do nothing. The way Instant Trim works is for the pilot to hold the stick(s) off centre (so as to maintain level flight), press/flip the IT switch, and release the stick. This appl...

So what do you think about the 100% subtrim capability of Instant trim? Is it OK? Should it be restricted to 25% like trim?

Re: ERSKY9X Coding

I had never thought of Instant Trim as being a way to give huge amounts of correction, just a quick way to apply relatively modest ones — certainly less than 25%. That’s the way I’ve always used it, and my concern was that having the ability to use up to 100% subtrim introduced the possibility of in...

The module’s automatic translation of channel order from AETR to the Spektrum order of TAER is a major simplification for anyone who uses other protocols, as it means all protocols can use a standard order of AETR and the transmitter firmware can have that as its default order. On the other hand, if...
