Re: Audio (voice) - Stock 9X PCB

Sorry Dennis, just noticed this. I lost the original repository on github, but have mostly recreated it and fixed the links in the wiki. Hello All, I found this post and am interested in building one of the boards from the 9xVoice Mod page. However all the board file links on Github are not working....

Re: WANTED: 9X or 9XR in good used condition

I have a brand new Turnigy 9x that I bought when I thought I had damaged my main board while doing early testing on the m2561 processor conversion. PM me if you're interested.

Re: ATmega2561 support in openTx

I am unable to find the option in Companion9x to download/compile the firmware for openTX for M2561 / 9x Board. As far as I know the m2561 support for the 9x has not been added to companion yet, likely as most of the development effort has gone into supporting the Taranis. Mike has added support to...

Ok, how do I test this malfunction step by step please.
Using the horizontal trims repeatedly causes the transmitter to reboot. I should mention that none of my stock transmitters ever did this over many years of flying, and after replacing the stock MCU with a M128, only 1 out of 3 did.

Re: Companion9x - compiled version crashes

Appears to be related to this line:

Code: Select all

RadioData simuData = radioData;
c9x crashes the moment simuData is accessed. I've been looking at the RadioData class definition in eeprominterface.h, but nothing's jumping out. Any idea why a copy of radioData is being used here?

I think so! I didn't run into any issues with openTx (or er9x-2561 for that matter). You can send me & mhotar a version to test before you release it. If I can import some of my more complex models I'll do a little more testing also.
