Is there some trick to installing eepesky? I had a complete failure during the install. Something about missing .dll
Why does it have to be so difficult?
This is not the first PC with Win7 64 that I have had an issue with the eepe
So is there a way of updating ersky9x via SD card ?
My 9XR Pro is running r212 , prob factory issue. (Hexatronic :-)
In other news.....
I was on the OpenTX site and downloaded an SD card version of the most recent version with AUTO SOURCE for programming SWITCH function.
just like the Taranis I would assume. Am I wrong?

I just want something that work for me, not the other way around. I am tired of the uphill battles with sketched out GUI's
Look I have paid my dues. I started with the 9x and modded it to the hilt. Everything but voice and haptic.
I am now not so into big DIY projects. I have enough broken quads to fix. and plenty of other opensource tinkering to do.
I have two new mini quads that I wanted to create new mixes for on a new radio and rise up from the lowly 9X
Just something that works for crimony
Good news soon buds or lets assume that a new Taranis is going on the shopping list

later

Manuals, with instructions for all this are here: https://openrcforums.com/forum/viewtopi ... 123&t=5581.

For installing via the SD card you need "9XR Pro Communicating with computer 2014-03-26c.pdf"

To get eepskye installed, you need "9XR Pro Using Eepskye Program 2014-03-26a.pdf". If you need to use a test version of eepskye, you first need to install eepskye, as described in the manual, then copy the test version .exe file into the installed directory.

Thanks to all who have chimed in.
Never realized there was a Class10 microSD full of folders in the slot.... What a hack :oops:
ersky9x r221 is installed and I am pleasantly surprised to see auto switch sourcing.:-)
Nice new splash screen. I felt like such a traitor for wanting to go to OpenTX anyway.
You must admit it is a bit of a learning curve to start as if from scratch, its been 2 yrs easily. My bad....
I have been very lazy about getting the 9XR Pro out and it is going to be a while before I am competent with producing
the same mixes I have in my old Turnigy 9X. It will always be a fall back that is dependant on FrSky D series Rx's
The world is all about instant gratification these days.
I must be patient and enjoy the quest.

I am now trying to program my 3 pos switch for flight modes. Whoops, familiar yet different :-)
My first attempts failed badly.
Just looking into this method >>> CH5 100 sIDx <<< solved my problem right off. But what exactly is it.

I suppose I have a bunch more reading to do ...the ersky manual
After I go fly some packs

If you have models on the 9X (running er9x), read them into eepe. Now, at the same time, run eepskye and read the EEPROM from the 'PRO. You should now be able to drag and drop models from the eepe window onto empty model slots in the eepskye window. eepskye will make a good attempt at translating the models, although you will need to check them.

This is the way I do it and don't have any problems, in my mind eepsky is unnecessary https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l81gItF ... 0s&index=3

No need to read, just watch my playlist, here is the video on the 3 pos switch, I don't claim to know all or 75% but what I do in the video works for me, no issues. https://youtu.be/cE9_oHD_vrM
