Re: ERSKY9X Coding

Since this requires a hardware modification, it would be better if you add an XJT heartbeat option to the hardware menu and remove PB14 from the switch sources if that option is enabled.

Re: Audio (voice) - Stock 9X PCB

With the cost of the FrSky QX7 being as low as it is, purchasing a new 9X, then sorting an upgrade for it is not really cost effective any more. Ersky9x for the QX7 supports adding 2 extra switches (2-position) to the QX7, and also supports the addition of a HC-05 bluetooth module. I also have plan...

Mike, Since most quad flyers move to F3/F4 based FC from old F1 based FC, you may find a "give-away" F1 based FC like Naze32 from your local quad flyers. Beta-flight firmware developers committed to support those F1 based FCs up to version 3.2 (upcoming version) and they are good enough for your tes...

MacOS will pop up a warning and not allow you to run any unsigned apps to protect you from the malwares.
You'll need to go through a procedure to circumvent the security warning.

Re: er9x development

My understanding is that the main reason there is no capability for users to edit the names of the five (?) flight modes whose parameters can be independently edited in er9x (for display on main screens, etc.) is memory constraints, particularly on the m64. Right now FM 1 - 5 can be displayed, but ...

Re: Turnigy 9xr Pro, XJT, X4R begginer questions

A 'good' value for the SWR is 0, so this is why you might think you are not seeing a reading. You can try wrapping you hand around the module antenna to see if you can make the SWR read a value other than 0. FYI: SWR (Standing Wave Ratio) couldn't be 0. If there's no reflection from antenna (i.e. p...

Re: flashing latest er9x

I think CS can be tied down even for the serial LCD since reset pulse will reset internal shift register and counter after power up. Once these registers are reset, it is followed by a series of legitimate data transfers and it doesn't need to reset those registers again. Since entire LCD data lines...

You don't need any hardware changes if you're happy with your current setup.

All you need is defining an union structure and disabling the telemetry code when the SBUS protocol i...
