Re: eepSKYe

Hi Guys I have noticed that the simulation display on EepSky (v421 28 feb 2016) reflects the 3 position switches and sliders(pots 4&5) that I have installed on my 9X but the source options in the drop down boxes do not give the choice for pots 4 & 5. Does this require an upgrades or development work...

Re: Can't trust my radio :-(

Joao

Just a comment - might not help
I switched on the wrong module to my plane today and instead of no result, one servo went slowly to full throw - might give you an idea?

ADD SLIDERS TO 9X

Hi guys

I just added Taranis sliders to my 9Xtreme - they are so convenient I thought I might add them to the basic 9X (ER9X) by transfering the wiring from the pots P1 and P2

This would appear to be straightforwards but does anyone know if these units are interchangeable?

Re: ERSKY9x Questions

Hi Joao I had entered 'After' in play source with no entry in the Source This is my mistake - I should have entered 'No' in play source With these entries the Mute option in the 'On No Telemetry' works as expected, ie it does not mute the simple voice file Thanks to you and Mike for the help in clar...

Re: ERSKY9x Questions

Hi Mike

I understand your comment but I find that without any type of entry in the source field, ie blank and with the 'Play On No Telemetry' set to mute, the voice file does not play.

So I can only play the voice fie if 'Play On No Telemetry' is set to On

Hope that makes sense

Re: ERSKY9x Questions

Mike
Just spotted a slight discrepancy in voice alarms
When ,play on no telemetry , is muted the voice alarm is also muted
This can be confusing as I didn't expect any connection between these choices

Re: FrSky issues

Hi Guys

I guess it was the motor buzzing and this stopped when I pulled the esc lead

The receiver doesnt buzz now but I still get the random drop in RSSI to zero on the bench

Re: FrSky issues

Sure the Rx was buzzing? About the only thing that's capable of buzzing in most setups is the motor, with the ESC doing the driving. That could be caused by a receiver problem, though. Thanks for the reply I thought it was a servo but I pulled all the leads and the buzz continued I could not detect...

Hi Steven

Yes it was a simple fix but it would have been the last thing I looked at - I was focusing too deep - thinking of complications like firmware issues

It just needs someone with an open mind and intuition to step in

Re: Upgrade 3 Position Switch Mod 9Xtreme

Just a thought... but is it possible that you have file extensions hidden? When you normally look at text files in Windows Explorer, do you see "textfile.txt" or simply "textfile"? If extensions are hidden, and you force it to say "MODEL06.txt" then really the file is "MODEL06.txt.txt". See this pa...

Re: Upgrade 3 Position Switch Mod 9Xtreme

Hi Joao

Yes - I have exactly matched the text file name to the model name

I have also tried with the TEXT folder as a subfolder in the MODELS folder with no sucess

I created the text file from the dialogue box in Windows 10, I think this is using Notepad - is this the correct way?
