Neuron II 80amp esc & BL Heli

Post by baggers50 »

Can anybody help me to get the Neuron II esc to talk to BL Heli. I have the USB adapter, installed the correct drivers for windows but whatever way i plug the Neuron in it wont open in BL Heli.

I'm sure I'm doing something daft!

I believe the Neuron II is not based on BL Heli firmware, so you need a LUA to configure it.

LUA files are here: https://www.frsky-rc.com/neuron2-80/.

That would explain an awful lot of head scratching! I'm not over familiar with using Lua scripts but if I download the PC version and buy an STK tool I guess that would work?

Many thanks for your help I've wasted a week trying to sort this.

The LUA script runs on your Tx, and "talks" to the Neuron-II using the bi-directional telemetry.
So bind a receiver, plug the ESC into the Rx and run the LUA script on the Tx.

Still struggling through treacle here, downloaded the open TX version of esc.lua when I run it it says syntax error. borrowed an STK tool and can see all the esc settings on my PC and change them which is fine. However I am getting no telemetry from the esc to the transmitter even though when connected to my PC I can see all the parameters. Is there a step I have missed to turn on telemetry?

Thanks

I'll try to help, but I don't use openTx and don't have a Neuron-II.

For the LUA, what revision of openTx are you running on the Tx?

What Rx are you using, what RF protocol (ACCST or ACCESS), and how have you connected the Neuron to the Rx?

Hi,

Thanks for your help, I'm using open TX 2.3.14 and using R8 pro receiver on Access. ESC is connected as per the instructions and working as far as throttle is concerned just no telemetry which is connected via the smart port.
