Some random pics, sorry - can't see my phone screen too well in the sunshine so these may not be great.

I get that completely Andrew, I've had a very busy summer with hardly any modelling or flying done at all.

Thread: D8R-11 plus Receiver and EU LBT firmware

This is remarkable stuff Mike, I have two or three D8R-II Plus Rxs that would benefit if and when I lose D8 in my Tx.

If I had more time I think I'd be getting stuck in and having a go with this right away, to help your testing. Alas things are very busy right now.

Just a little bit of feedback. Between everyone that's contacted me, I've now sent out 102 PCBs. I've had a daft lingering hope that we'd crack the 100 barrier and now we have.

So - many many thanks for all the support and interest, it makes it feel very worthwhile.

Are there any more success stories?
Or have most people had a go and given up?


Thread: Taranis to Spektrum Trainer.

Hi Robert and welcome to the forum.

Yes you're right. The transmitter that will bind to the receiver has to be the master Tx. So I assume that the Rx is Spectrum?

So what you need to do is configure the Horus to send signals down the buddy lead in Spectrum format.

The first question is - which operating system is the Horus using? FrOS or OpenTx?

The same question has been asked a few times in this thread Tomas.

It seems a mix up at the printers has meant that the American version of the cover has been used on some UK copies.

I'll lock this tread so all other comments continue in the other one.

Have a look at Tim Hooper's Civilian Coupe thread here. It might provide some food for thought.

Thread: Hospitalised, my own fault - but ?

Wow Colin that's quite a story and well described.

I don't think I've ever considered that possibility. We have so much instant power availsble these days don't we? I'm sure that posting here will save others from the same scenario at some point or other.

Very best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Fixed, Michael. I'm going to remove the duplicate thread too.


Thread: Build your own telemetry sensors.

The full .zip file is here

Once downloaded it needs unzipping but leaving in the file structure just as it comes.

As you'll see, there are a LOT of files in there.

Hi Mike

I think we can fix this fairly easily. Im at work just now so can't spend much time.

I downloaded the IDE from Arduino website here it's currently showing version 1.8.9. If you have used the servo tester sucessfully then your IDE is probably OK.

The openxsensor sketch comprises many files. it sounds like you don't have them all.

We'll have to work out the best way to point you to them. Or I might be able to email the whole thing in a zip file later.


Thread: FrSky Neuron ESC
31/07/2019 12:03:51

Hi Bob

After further consideration you're right. I was probably just comparing with a cheap-ish ESC and not considering the telemetry stuff.

They will be my future preference even over my own telemetry units.

It's still very simple to add an altimeter etc, if required.

Hi Michael

Wow there's a question.
As reported, I'm no expert at all, this has been my own voyage of discovery.

Hopefully someone with some real knowledge might come along.

In the meantime my guess would be that the sketch has somehow become corrupted.
What happens if you try to compile the original sketch as downloaded, before you try any changes?

A hundred and seventy years ago most folk lived within walking or riding distance of home. Then the train companies realised there was more money to be made moving people around than just goods. Suburbs were built and the rot started.

There's me thinking most people lived AT home rather than within walking or riding distance?
