Been awhile but got some time to test and sync is working. R9M 50/100/200hz, no problems.

But I can't get any telemetry to radio. (Well, I get some but gives strange readings. FasV 460.8, Cus1 212, Cus3 100, Cus4 22, Cus6 5 and thats about it.)
Has anyone else tried if there's telemetry on radio with erskytx + elrs r9m?

What I figured out of those and seems ok:
Cus6 is RF_Mode 5 - 200hz
Cus4 is SNR
Cus3 is RX_quality

But Cus1 and FasV values seems strange to me. My thought was if I could get battery and gps info then maybe I could send telemetry via HC-05 inside my radio connected on com3 to phone app.

For Crossfire telemetry:
Cus1 Rx RSSI1
Cus2 Rx RSSI2
Cus3 Rx QUALITY
Cus4 Rx SNR
Cus5 Rx ANTENNA
Cus6 MODE

FasV should be the battery volts.

I am using R9 + R9M with ERLS at Turnigy 9X with AR9X board inside and ERSKYTx. Also I have bluetooth module inside my TX and it push all ERLS Telemetry to the Telemetry viewer app. At my drone I am using INAV. FasV showing correct as at OSD. Maybe you have problem with voltage scaler at your flight controller?
For Custom 1 sensor (1RSS) you need create scaler with offset "-256". And you will see RSSI in dbm like on the OSD in your case "-44 dmb" (222 - 256 = -44)

Hello, I am working to get ELRS (Happy Model) ES24TX working with my 9xr pro. I have flashed the correct opentx test version (erskyTxR223B5.zip), and changed my protocol to Xfire. I downloaded the scripts from https://github.com/spinorkit/ExpressLRS ... kytx-basic , but not sure which is the difference. ELRS2.bas lets me change the speed, but not the power, and doesn't have enable wifi flash option. Do I have everything right so far, and how do I enable wifi flash?

So I found the newer version of script in official repo, and it does work correctly. https://github.com/ExpressLRS/ExpressLR ... c/ELRS.bas

Ok so ELRS is working with my receiver. Now the only thing I don't know how to do is setup the telemetry. Really just need signal strength. If I go to model_setup->telemetry, what do I need to set for UsrProto, as I don't see Xfire there?

The telemetry should automatically be set for Crossfire when the protocol is set for Crossfire.
You may need to check you have the correct Com port selected (COM1) and that it is not inverted. Then the telemetry should come through.

Hey guys, I am back after some long(ish) break. Oh no, not him again :o :P :D
So, is erskyTX still being developed? Does it still support my 9xtreme and Ar9x boards, or do I have to buy / build some other radios? ;)

I have been doing some other stuff but my son asked me to build a couple receivers for him and I have decided that I will spend more time on RC. It would be nice if there is still some DIY radio development. :)
Need to update my radios by the way.

Here is a video of the controller. What am I missing? https://imgur.com/a/R6UFxnV

The settings for the COM port (1 or 2 and inversion) are in the Telemetry menu. Please check this as I mentioned.

Hi João,
Yes erskyTx is still being developed, although I seem to be spending more time porting it to new radios than adding new features.
As many new radios have the large, colour screen, I'm adding things for those at present.

Yes
Telemetry->"Telem. Com Port" = 1
And Invert = None.
Telemetry->"Com2 Func. = Telemetry

I am not sure what should be in Telemetry->UsrProto, as I don't see Xfire there.

Set the UsrProto to FrSky, it is possible that having it set to ARDUC could cause a problem.

Shall we implement a color display on Ar9x? ;)
Joking.
Before adding new features on ErskyTX, I think there are some old features that might need some attention ;)
I have also noticed today that the RTC battery of my 9xtreme radio finally died after 3 years.. Probably longer. Need to replace it and will take the chance to remove those pogo pins and just solder some wires between both boards.

das ist schön Mike dass du etwas Farbe in erskytx bringst. Vermutlich wird es noch einige Zeit dauern bis die ersten Screens fertig sind.
vielen Dank
Phil
