Re: ERSky Voice Files

Thanks Mike. It works. I now have my throttle switch announcing each climb in a set with the Trainer switch resetting the sequence to zero. Your advice proved to be most valuable. There are some screen shots below which show the detail of the programming, the scratch pad I used to figure out the val...

Re: ERSky Voice Files

I would like to be able to program a switch to count up each time it is operated and announce the next number. I have tried to think of a way to use the custom switches and the voice switches to achieve this but I have not been able to think of a way of doing it. I have no experience in using logic ...

16kHz "WAV (Microsoft) signed 16 bit PCM" is what I exported my sound files as from Audacity.

What are you listening to?

Re: Drifting calibration of A1 FrSky telemetry voltage ErSky

I have just tested the system and can confirm that when the display has two decimal places the voice announcement is out by a factor of 10. ie 6.13 V was announced as 61.3 V whjle 6.2 V was announced as 6.2 V. I connected the earth (negative) lead of the main pack to the negative lead of the Rx pack...

Re: ERSky Voice Files

I am using r122 v1375 as well. Just used a D8RII-plus flashed to D8R-XP FW rx. FLVS-01 is attached to FSH-01 sensor hub. divider for A1=13.2 A2=19.8 , testing with 3S lipo , BEC at constant 5.5 v.

Re: Drifting calibration of A1 FrSky telemetry voltage ErSky

The scale factor for the Rx voltage is 11.5 v. The source of the voltage information in the original configuration is a FrSky FSH-01 telemetry hub. The scale factor for the 10s pack divider is 45.0 and the ratio of the divider is 2.98/40.2 = 0.074. The voltage divider is merely three 1 Watt resistor...

Re: Drifting calibration of A1 FrSky telemetry voltage ErSky

I took a new D8R - II plus Rx with the A1 shorting plug installed for Rx Voltage telemetry using the inbuilt circuit. ie new Rx and no hub connected and no voltage divider connected. The Rx voltage does not drift.

More tests tomorrow. It's bedtime.

Drifting calibration of A1 FrSky telemetry voltage ErSky9x

I have an ErSky 9x Tx with FrSky Telemetry. In one electric model I have an FrSky FSH-01 sensor hub connected to the FrSky D8II Rx at the digital input port on the side of the Rx. It is used for two temperature measurement inputs only. It is powered from the Rx. In addition I have a home crafted vol...

Re: ERSky Voice Files

In the voice files there is an announcement which says "inactive". My Tx started saying that word today. I don't know what initiates that warning nor do I know what I did which eventually turned the voice off.
Could someone please explain.

Re: ERSky Voice Files

The buzz happened only with my files, and only when operated with a switch. These were files which I generated using a Mac voice and Audiacity software.

Re: ERSky Voice Files

Making a voice file on a Mac. You can make a voice file using your own voice or one of the Macintosh voices using apps you already have that come for free with Mac. You then have to convert it to .wav format using an app like Switch File Converter: http://download.cnet.com/Switch-Audio-Converter/30...
