Throttle begins at @ 50%

Post by LowThudd » Thu Feb 07, 2013 7:47 pm

Hello. I just got a Turnigy 9x and FrSky module w/ V8FR-II Rx. I have it bound(binded?) and operating, however the throttle is only opperational at about 40-50% throttle position. How can this be adjusted? I tried reading the manual(s), but could not figure it out. TIA

This could be related to you speed controller

Often they need to he calibrated to understand the range of stock movement sent down the PPM line.

Please try a servo in that position and make sure it's going its normal range as well. If it does then it could be that the ESC hasn't calibrated itself properly as Rob has suggested.
If the servo doesn't go it's normal full range please try a new unused memory position. You may have something corrupted in the one your using. A new memory should give you proper throw it's not a stick pot failure or corrupted values.
These steps should help you zero in on where the trouble is.
Please post your fix/findings.
Thanks

calibration esc:
power on your Tx. move thorttle all the way up, then power up your esc, hear a couple beeps, lower your throttle stick all the way done. Done. disconnect all power. restart, you should be good.

Thanks for the help. It must have been a bad setting. I got my smartieparts board today unexpectedly early and flashed open9x. The problem is now history with the new and improved firmware.

The new firmware also cleans out all model memories and starts over.
Glad it's fixed.
