Thread: Binding and updating
07/01/2017 17:42:18

Yes, this is complex but it's not really FrSky's fault - the ETSI legislation change is what caused them to have to release new RF firmware in the EU. My recommendation would be as follows:

  • Buy the new RXs you want in the EU with the current EU LBT firmware.
  • Try and bind them in D16 mode - if they work out of the box that means you have EU LBT firmware in your internal RF module already and you don't need to do anything further.
  • If that doesn't work you are going to need to update the internal RF module in your TX and all your existing RX to the latest EU LBT spec. This will be a one time exercise; once done you should never have to do it again, and you will be able to buy EU LBT RXs off the shelf and use them straight away.

If you give me some time I will link you to resources on updating your internal RF module and RXs. This no longer requires specialist USB leads/devices, as you can do it all from the TX itself with a servo lead that has been slightly modified (two pins are swapped over, that's it).

Thank you Matt, any helps as to what needs to be done to companion, frskky firmware, the open source software that runs the Taranis, and old and new receivers would be great.

Do you know why only Frsky seem to be affected by legislation.

Hear hear. I am still confused as to software / companion updates and compatibility. I have given up temporarily with frisky until somebody writes a definitive list of what to do (in simple steps). 

I am running a Mac, most instructions are aimed at pc's.

Thread: Kit builders, what would you like???

Hi Paul

Can't really start it for a few weeks as I'm recovering from cataract eye surgery and It be a while until I get new glasses.

Was out all day yesterday, so have only just been given my little box that arrived from Essex and WOW.

What a fab kit - quality of kit parts and building instructions leaves many kits well behind. Only wish I had discovered Replica kits earlier. Really looking forward to getting started.

Please don't stop producing Richard, as I will certainly be back for more.

It's a bit like tinkercadd. It's software that you develop your 3d object on that you want to print. There are other threads on this forum about 3d printing.

I'm another interested follower.

just started trying to get to grips with 123d software.

Wish I could but she has already hidden it. How do others get around this problem or are you just patient ?

20/12/2016 14:09:46

Certainly is.

Thread: Lipo battery holder- QD casette

looking at your picture with the battery in place, I think that you should put some packing between the firewall and the battery. If the battery moves on an arrival, bolt will go straight through the battery and possible fire will ensue.

Thread: Challenge to drone legislation?
03/10/2016 16:48:55

I was in my very well known LMS on Saturday and spoke about our impending problem with EASA. They didn' t seem to know much about it and didn't seem that bothered. Perhaps the model trade need educating, after all their business could well be on the line.

Absolutely no need for a giro on the Heron. Wonderful glider. Flew straight from the building board without even a trim change.

Thread: Binding and updating

Thank you all for your input so far. I will try following Andy48 instructions tomorrow.


05/08/2016 22:41:48

It was some time ago, I think that I updated both opentx and rf firmware. RF modes available are LR12, D8 and D16.

I am trying to get my Frsky Taranis setup back to a working system. I have tried looking through the threads but have got really confused. What I would like if possible is a list of instructions that I can follow. The main problem I have is being unable to bind receivers. I updated my taranis some time ago and then ran into problems, had to resort to another brand till I get this sorted.

Taranis is an early one.

Taranis firmware rel - 2.0.13

I have a variety of receivers

D8R II, D8R, X8R, X4R, X6R, D6R II, V8R4 II (bound ok), X8R. None of the receivers have had updates applied. 2 of the X8R are dated 2015.

I do have various update cables.

Hope that somebody may be able to help. Thank you in anticipation.
