Re: Setup for Crow / Butterfly

Try studying this series of tutorials. Long but excellent. After viewing these I actually understood the er9x style of programming.

Re: Post er9x operation menu button and board fix

Where in Canada are you? I could help you if you don't mind shipping to Michigan. Or if you are near Windsor or Sarnia you could bring it to me, fly some, and fix it together.

Not quite sure why I can not open your eepe file. eepe (rev 392) sees it as "hex" and wont open it. What am I doing wrong?

Re: er9x development

1+ for the continued development of the 9x. With the 128 or 2561 they are far from obsolete. Thank you for the continued efforts!

Re: Replace 5V regulator

Bob,
You might have try using the command prompt in Windows. I used this command with success:
C:\Program Files\eePe>avrdude.exe -P USB -c usbasp -p m2561 -B 500 -u -U lfuse:w:0xDE:m -U hfuse:w:0xD1:m -U efuse:w:0xFC:m -v

Your path may be different.

Re: Turnigy 9x magic smoke

The atmega2561 works just fine in all four of my 9x radios. If you haven't purchased the 128 then it seems to make sense to use the 2561.
I purchased these at Digikey: http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/e ... -ND/735457

Re: Turnigy 9x magic smoke

@Toroddandre,
I agree with bstott. But I would change to a m2561 chip. Same effort, a lot more memory! One would hope that your problem is the processor. Chip quick makes it very easy.

Re: ATmega2561 Upgrade to Turnigy 9X

Andrew was right. The only way I could get the display to work was to manually download the er9x-2561 file, then flash with that. The one downloaded by eepe did not work. Thankyou all for your help
