Thread: S6R config app issue
31/08/2017 11:16:36

App has been run on my son's W10 PC and works perfectly!

It remains a mystery, but I'll not waste any more time on it angry

Thanks for all the input yes

Thanks to David for emailing the config ZIP.....................exactly the same result, so I'm now sure that it's my PC that's causing this enigma.

I will try it on one of my sons' PCs asap and confirm.
Meanwhile I'm able to set up the S6R with Mike's SportSet smiley

I have just tried s6r calibration software ,version 1.3 on my computer,running windows 10 and it worked fine with the 3 tick boxes visible.

Hi David,

Looks like my PC/Win10 then!

I'll PM you my email address, would you send me the ZIP of the config app you used please and that should confirm it.

Ta, Shep

Checking your images, they have a white area under the tabs that is pushing the blue area, with the options on it, down.

Yes I see that but there is no side slider to adjust up/down, nor arrows at the corners to stretch the image. I've tried several versions for S6R and S8R, all the same!

I'm using Win 10, with a 1920x1080 screen and it displays correctly.

Andy: He must have the correct COM port as he is seeing the accelerometer values, and he has used the read button as the last image shows the reading is complete.


I'm going to try the app on other peoples PCs when I get the chance and will report back.

Thanks, Shep

Ian, Tried S8R config...same result.

Denis, S6R brand new, first one I've tried and using V 1.3

Mike, You're a star..........again; downloaded SportSet and latest .exe, works a treat thank you cool

I agree about the image being short but it was in the middle of a 1920 x 1080 screen res exactly as shown.
Strange one, but your expertise worked smiley


PS I tried several other resolutions too.

Has anyone got a ZIP of the config app that they have successfully used they can email to me, so that I can rule out my PC being the problem?

Please PM me for my email address if you can help. Ta, Shep

Just to reiterate, I've attached actual images of the first page showing the correct version (Aux tick boxes) and the offending Cal page!

PS Thanks for the replies so far smiley

I've just bought an S6R Rx and downloaded and installed the Config App on my Windows 10 PC.

It opens up and finds the Rx, the accelerometer numbers are showing and changing to prove the connection but on that Calibration page the three buttons: Previous, Calibration and Next shown on the downloaded image below are missing!

Anyone got a fix for this please?

I've got a 4 channel Futaba 35 Mhz Tx & Rx which I bought and used circa 1986 with an Algebra glider, which I also still have!

You're welcome to the Tx/Rx for gratis plus postage if you wish.


Mode 1 and good working order smiley

Very nice Colin, but I can't help wondering how sickening it will be for you whenever anyone compliments you on your nice Auster frown

Absolutely! From another ex full size Auster pilot cool

Thread: Strange Win 10 PC problem
04/05/2017 16:18:28

I recently had a problem with W10 on my pc (auto updated from W7) so I downloaded this: **LINK**

I ran it, chose the usb option then booted off the usb stick and installed a clean W10. It recognises if W10 has been installed before but you lose all progs and files, unless you've got the files backed up!

Last week I used the same usb again on my grandsons W10 laptop which he'd messed up.

I have put the usb away for future use.................

No guarantees, but it worked for me.

However, what there is a huge appetite for is a "Super Taranis". Hall effect gimbals as std, better quality switches and a revised case that fits in with the family resemblance of the Q7 and Horus - maybe even a colour screen could be added. Priced around the £250-300 mark (or more likely 350 if the colour screen was added) it would be a huge seller, but will they do it? I hope so, but I'm not holding my breath; if it were wildly successful it might also kill Horus sales stone dead.

Looks like it's arrived; I'm in smiley


Thread: S8R Rx
02/03/2017 19:32:06

Anyone using an S8R with a Taranis Plus?

I've been using several X8Rs over the last three years and shortly will need more RXs.

The new S8R is only ~£1 more than the X8R so it seems silly not to go for the stabiser option.

I read in another thread that the S6R is a bit complicated to set up with a Plus Tx.

Any experiences/tips people?

TIA Shep

Eagle899, I used to have a 1/5 share in that Auster with Dick Larder and a couple of others in the mid-nineties. It was painted then in silver with yellow bands with markings of the Royal Auxiliary Air Force squadron that it was with in 1946. Small world, when were you involved with it?

Small world indeed Colin; I had a 1/5 share for several years from 2002 and flew out of a strip at Streethays Farm, by the A38. Shep

Reminds me of an Auster too.

It takes me back to when I used to fly this one out of a farmstrip near Lichfield, Happy Days.ajae_streethays.jpg
