X8R Receiver Framerate

Post by TheHunter » Mon Sep 09, 2013 7:32 pm


I wonder at which framerate the X8R Receiver drives the Servos. I could not find a "Normal" and "Fast" mode like with the D8R's
Is it somehow possible to change the Framerate of the X8R?

Fixed at 18ms AFAIK.
The fast option on D receivers was useless anyway, the receiver would not get updates that fast so would just send the same thing twice.

How sure are you about this 18ms for the X8R

I recently have had two failures when using the X8R receivers.
Two hitec HS-82 MG analogue servo's destroyed in 1 month time.

When I bind the receiver and Taranis, the Taranis says 9ms in the menu?

Kind regards

The Tx sends 8 channels every 9mS, but the X8R does only output servo pulses every 18 mS.
