Channel Value is changing without stick movements

Post by AlexF » Sun Mar 13, 2016 4:52 pm

Hi all,

my roll-channel is changing by more than 30% without stick movement. Even right after I calibrate my 9x (running openTX). It happens after i moved outdoor from 20° to 7°. Do anyone know this Issue? Did anyone find a fix for this Problem? Has the Taranis the same Issue?

Here is a Youtube Video i found which descries the same Problem. (klick)

Thanks,

AlexF.

It looks like you have a bad pot on the aileron stick.
Some people managed to repair pots successfully..

What firmware are you using on your radio? still the stock? The reason I ask is that you can install taranis gimbals on the 9x radio, but it is only supported by the open source firmware as far as I know..

Also for some more info about your possible bad pot problem, see here: (viewtopic.php?f=95&t=2974) and (viewtopic.php?f=95&t=4281).
Some people have been able to repair this low quality pot.
But maybe better to upgrade to the Taranis Gimbals.
