Thread: Int to Eu
17/11/2017 20:00:31

Maybe my post 14/11/17 heading wasn't clear enough.

I have a DX7 Tx in the international mode, I have inherited some AR500 DSM2 rxs,

Can I convert the Tx to the Eu mode so I can use these rxs?

Have just tried again and while searching for the file .frk I connected the rx and voila the download option lit up it started to and completed the download with a solid green led on the rx.!

Have just tried Martyn's s advice .. a few times ... but get the following problems after installing CP210x VCP Windows drivers.

1] connected USB adapter to the PC & it says it's on COM3

2] open S/port upgrade adapter .. COM 1 displays as not found I change to COM3 and get the same msg.

3] when selecting X8R 150115.frk I get the green led flashing-red solid ... forever!

Cannot see what I'm doing wrong!

Ref Chris B's "ps" on his post 26/02/15

I have many X-R rcvs. and only 1 X6R eu rx.which I want to downgrade to suit my old Taranis.

I can use it in the D8 mode but would like to use it in D16.

Have downloaded lots of .frk files and "How to's" but none advise how to downgrade, I expect the answer is reasonable simple but I find that maturity often gets in the way now-a-days?

regards Helidel

Have just completed a very successful maiden with my Acrowot(e) but what a pain to get the battery (3S 2200) fitted. I looked at the Ripmax mod for the ESC but the ESC is too long to fit where they say! I have managed to re locaqted but it takes more fiddling to fit the battery than it did to make the plane!

Why with such a well used model wsn't the forseen? Speaking with other club members (3) they have all had this problem with the Acrowatt ESC.

Come on Ripmax a little more QC would have helped.

Thanks Timbo, and also for moving the post here.
Seems most odd that mixes are in the programming but not usable
I can make the a mix work but only if I make the plane a heli!!

No answers yet  maybe one of the Moderators could move this to the Spektrum/JR  area. Or maybe I'm the only guy that has this problem

Mix1 & mix 2 show throttle to throttle as default (from new)
I have tried to set either mix to a throttle hold but cannot get any response from the *** thing!  [works OK on my DX7]
The kill button works OK for glows but I'd like a definite throttle safety switch on my electrics so I don't have to hold the button down on the way out to fly.

Hi again, have just read some of your other queries, the Deuces Wild is designed for counter rotating props which will be sold by Horizon (UK) when they eventually get the kits ready for UK.

But with electric, you only have to reverse one of the motors to acheive contra-rotation. This is done by changing over any 2 motor wires to the ESC on one motor, and use a normal prop, then make sure they are both going the correct way!
