Failsafe Programming

Post by rwhammer » Tue Apr 16, 2019 7:37 pm

I know you can program lots of different things with Lua, but I have not yet learned the language. I was wondering if there was a way to program a Failsafe that will do something like this? Rudder right turn for 10 seconds then straighten out while gradually lowering throttle speed. If there is no way then perhaps it could be a suggestion for future RX.

The failsafe is most of the times handled by the receiver..
The receiver enters failsafe because it lost connection with the transmitter.. So, programming failsafe on the TX is kinda useless :) ;)

No way yet to program a rx? Hopefully maybe in the future.

The "best" option would be a S6R or S8R. In failsafe, you may enable "auto level" mode, together with some rudder and no throttle. This should result in a continuous, flat, descending turn.

I actually have a X8R. Will that do the same thing?

No. The X8R is just a receiver, the SxR's are receivers with built-in stabilizers.

So FrSky doesn't make a rx with stabilization and telemetry?

FrSky's S6R and S8R have stabilization and telemetry as Kilrah posted.
