Yes, please right click on the model in eepskye, then select "save model settings" or something similar.. I am not at the PC at the moment..
You can also save the complete eeprom. "File / save as" you can select save as .bin or .eepe.
Then just post the file here..

I don't know why you insist in using a pot. You have enough switches..
Also, you are using the ID switch. Is this for the bait and also for the hooks?
as far as I can see you release the bait on ID0?

Please forget the voice for now, you need to have all controls working first. the voice is easy

Ok, I think I've programmed all the stuff. See the attached file
CH3 - Static LightsTurn them on with !GEA
CH4 - Lights that blink when both left and right bait doors open. They need to be turned ON with !AIL before..
CH5 - Left Bait door. Switch ID0
CH6 - Right Bait door. Switch ID2

Switch needs to be in the middle position ID1, to keep both doors closed.. Is this what you had in mind?

CH7 - Left Hook. To release move the Rud stick fully left for at least 3 seconds.
Ch8 - Right Hook. To release move the Rud stick fully right for at least 3 seconds.

Some mixes say (Note). This means that I have written some notes on them. Double click on the mix to view the notes at the bottom of the mix editor window.

Test it on the simulator. it seems to be working for me..

Quick update everything looks perfect, might set hopper release on left stick like hook release, but just letting you know that I do not have any notes showing in mixes, any ideas as to why not?

Trying to set a voice name for BAITBOAT model but cannot add a name can only select a number, did make a file for it,

Also autopilot flight mode says same thing for both flight modes, says Autopilot off but not on

Thanks again for all your help.

Sorry, I re-imported and notes are now there, so strange.

At present lights flash before the doors actually open, as it seems as soon as rudder (left stick) moved to left or right the lights start to flash, but because need to hold stick for 3 secs to activate lights may flash and think bait is dropped and actually not, they need to go on after stick held for 3 seconds.

And will the lights also flash when 3 position switch is switched to either ID0 or ID2 as well as on rudder stick being held?

Think other than the voices it all working on transmitter simulator

Many thanks John

I have programmed the bait doors on ID0 and ID2. the lights blinked with them.. You might have changed something then..

Hi João,

Ok, everything seems to work fine for now without changing anything.

Issues I am now having are getting voicefiles to play when hook left and hook right are dropped, also when I startup handset I would like it to say my voicefiles when handset or model is turned on.

Would like voice file for lights on and off, I have made the files and they are on sd card under user directory but not playing.

Thanks John

The door voices should be easier to program.

There is something I don't understand, you want the radio to start speaking the doors or lights states when you power the radio ON or change model?

Yes, have done them all now, had to use custom names and not numbers,

At present you programmed ID0 and ID2 as hopper droppers, is there much to do if I want to change them to the left stick up and down?

As I may be adding a motor winch at some point for underwater camera and will need the ID0 and ID2 and up and down controls?

Thanks John

wouldn't the left stick be more suitable for controlling the camera?

Hi again, everything working as it should, I am now going to be adding a Pixhawk 4 Flight Controller, do i need to do much on the handset for this to work or it mostly done through Mission Planner?

Just waiting for the kit to turn up next week.

Thanks John

I have no idea on this one as I never used that flight controller. But why do you need a flight controller on a boat?? :o :mrgreen:

It’s mainly for Gps and plotting exact location, say if putting bait out in middle of night you want to be on exactly the same place, the Pixhawk I thought was one of the best ones and at good price

Hi again ok all working on my bait boat apart from the hopper droppers,

I have purchased an 2 way receiver controlled switch, it has one plug for receiver so only uses one channel

I have attached wiring diagram which I have wired up, but doesn’t seem to drop, think programming not quite correct,

It only needs to send a pulse for like 0.5sec any idea on what to change to get it working?

Thanks JohnImage

Have plugged in, currently there is power the whole time through the switch unless I flick 3 pos switch to ID0 power goes off it should be reverse of that

Also when switched to middle
Position or ID2 it should have no power, hope this make sense

Is that all the information the switch brings? :o Doesn't it say what does it expect the channel to do for each load? :o

Ok, there are 2 versions of that switch, latching and non latching. which version do you have?

I think i understand how it works.
Please post your model file again, I will try to have a look at it later.. :)

The "hopper droppers" channel needs to be at 0% (middle point).
To turn the 1st switch ON it needs to go to +100% for a little while and then return to center.
To turn the 2nd switch ON it needs to go to -100% for a little while and then return to center.

Same procedure to turn the switches OFF.

Hi João, sorry I was away fishing.

Here is model file, I have been thinking while away, the left thumbstick currently when holding left or right does the hook release, I am scraping this as will not be using it, will only be using the hopper drop left and right so would like this on the left stick to replace the hook release, this way the stick returns to centre, will still want lights to flash on hopper drop.

I want to use the 3 position switch for different flight modes for autopilot, normal mode and loiter

The switch I purchased was the non-latching one.

Thanks again John

Please check this one.. Doors channels are 7 and 8. Move the stick in one direction to open one of the doors. You have to keep holding the stick for 3 seconds before the door open. The lights won't flash when the stick is at the end, they will flash when the doors actually open.
I think you might have to do the same procedure to close the doors (turn the RC off) you have to do it for both channels.
