Re: PXX work

More detailed S-Bus description (still in German though ;) ), very easy. 100kbps 8E2 UART comms, one start byte, 16 11-bit channels concatenated to form 22 bytes, one byte with flags, one stop-byte. There's also the info how to set the servo's channel number. http://www.flightronic.com/index.php?pag...

Re: Help deciding best way to do telemetry mods

Yes, they're upgrades that replace the old ones... For example my module/receiver pair I ordered 2 months ago came with a D8RII, and the latest one I received 2 weeks ago now came with a D8R-II Plus.

Re: Help deciding best way to do telemetry mods

Yep in the D8** it's only the D8RII Plus that can read the battery voltage directly. The others need the voltage sensor.

Re: Bugs in Open9x?

Because if we do 2 separate screens, there's enough space to put 4 parameters in big writing on the "inflight" one so that they are easy to read, and alt/speed/distance leave space for a 4th one... Course is not absolutely required, but might be useful for FPV. Even better would be a kind of home ar...

There's some info there:
http://forum.mikrokopter.de/topic-16535.html

IMO they probably have interest in S-Bus as it's the only "digital" protocol for which there are servos out there today, would be a great selling point for them, "use your S-Bus system with a receiver that's 10 times cheaper"... ?

It's the old module without telemetry that he's installing. The mainboard mods are only required for telemetry reception.

I think there's quite a bit of weirdness with Spektrum...

Re: Having trouble with my beast 3d throttle input pls advic

OK, interesting. If you can program the ESC to the TX or with a wider range, then do this rather than reducing throws, you'll have better precision. I'd still not touch the trim at though, just leave it centered unless really needed.

OK, good about the other channels. I have watched your video. With the trim centered and throttle throws at 100%, I need to have the stick close to the middle for the motor to start (if you look at the graduations on the 9X's stick, it's just one below center), which matches your situation. With 65%...

Re: Having trouble with my beast 3d throttle input pls advic

There's no ESC calibration on these models (as they're only inteneded to be used with original Spektrum radios, no variation is expected). ER9X however seems to send way bigger throws than the stock Spektrum TXs.

I fly a Sbach 342 UMX, and had to set my limit settings to 65% both ways on CH1-4. Try powering up your plane, starting the motor once to arm the AS3X, then move the other channels slowly one at a time observing the servos. If the Beast behaves the same (very likely), they should actually reach thei...
