Setting failsafe

Post by jirka525 » Tue Nov 07, 2017 12:02 am

Hi I would like to set failsafe mode on RX S8R. I tested all modes in menu Protocol -> failsafe and I can't set, when RX loose signal, switch off the trotle and switch on the stabilization. Can You help me?
Thank you Jirka

I have a note in the changelog for the next release that I fixed a "Failsafe bug".
Please backup you existing firmware and EEPROM, then flash the firmware (ersky9xr_rom.bin) from ersky9xProvR221f4.zip found here: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=4676.

With this, the failsafe settings should work. Note that after setting the failsafe values, you may need to wait up to 10 seconds for them to be sent to the receiver.

This firmware is quite stable, and is likely to be the next release (r221), possibly with some minor changes.

Thank you for answer. Unfortunately, upgrading the firmware to version 221F4 did not help. It seems to me that only the failsafe mode can be selected. For me, either RX or user mode would be appropriate. Unfortunately, I'm not able to set up the failsafe mode on the receiver, so I can not use it now. In User mode, I can not adjust parameters on the transmitter again. For example, a Trottle -100% and so on. Is there any way to set it up? Thank you for answer.

Witht the protocol set to XJT, go down to the Failsafe line and select "Custom". Now press MENU LONG, you should get a screen where you may set the required failsafe values, e.g. set the throttle channel to -100%.
The failsafe settings should be sent to the Rx every 10 seconds, although they should be sent shortly after you have changed a value.

MikeB very thank You for the advice. The RX works well now. I set it to user mode and after communication break is switching off the motor a setting up the stabilization.
