Thread: Binding and updating

Morning all,

A darkened room was certainly needed. Spent some time on Sunday going through some of my receivers and also getting reaqainted with the Taranis. So far I have only 1 rx that won't bind - X6R. I guess that this one needs a change of firmware.

I am withdrawing my interest in the Hurricane (my favourite) and have gone with the ME110. Hard decision but I have recently bought the Mk9 Spitfire. This will be my 1st ever twin( in 40+ years of modelling.

Twins are different but not difficult. once the kits are in hand we will get a thread going with setup tips etc. will yours make a noise?

Hi Jon,

Mine is going to be electric. Are you going for one, and if you are I look forward to the thread.

Hi Chris,

Will do. Thanks once again

Good evening all,

Having got back a working Tx with a basic setup what's next?

Do I need to build a load that includes Eu and the other bits I left off.

I haven't tried any of my receivers yet

The hurricane was my 1st choice but I had the Spitfire instead as there was no Hurries in stock. If it's not going to be for a couple of months I would have one. They can be electric I hope.

Doh Doh Dohblush

Just switched on after a little charge, system now working. With All this trying out over the last few days I have drained the battery. (because system not working, I was not able to see the battery status).

Tonight it will have a good charge. After that - sort out the original problem - eu or non eu , receivers etc.

Thanks to everybody for your time spent so farbeer, very much appreciated.

Ah good point andy. because of no display I can't ee battery condition going to put it on charge now

10/01/2017 20:35:24

I'm sorry Andy, what I am trying to say is that the Tx dies after selecting write. It never gets to the next screen.

If I wait a few seconds before I select Write, the Tx dies.

Andy - boot loader is ver 2.0.12

Peter I did that the 1st time but now when I switch on and if I'm lucky I get that screen display and I select write - the screen goes blank and the machine gunnies starts. thats all that happens until I switch off.

10/01/2017 19:59:49

I did that Andy.

If I switch on now with trims l/r

display - writefw start up screen

displays file name.

if I don't do anything, after about 10secs screen goes blank then noise starts

I then power off disconnect battery reconnect battery switch on - nothing except noise

10/01/2017 19:47:46


I'm not getting that message any more since installing dry-util.

everything seems to go ok without errors.

it's just that there is nothing there except the noise


10/01/2017 19:40:15

I have created a very basic build as suggested

I tried installing via sd card Trims l/r etc.

write firmware Displays correct file name press enter dispels writing etc.

power off then on displays opentx very briefly then starts m/c gun noise.

Then tried with opentx. all appears ok . power off then on - same result nothing but constant noise.

10/01/2017 18:49:49

Hi Pete

Loaded the SD card into the Mac card reader. Created a directory called FIRMWARES and copied a file called

'open-taranis-no-heli-massstorage-mixersmon-en.bin into it.

​Replaced the sd card back into Tx switched on with trims set

selected 'write firmware' for some reason it displayed 2 file names even tho only 1 in directory

​pressed enter and now as reported

I have tried booting without SD - only get the generated noise


10/01/2017 18:33:10

Think I have got a bit fed up with my Taranisangry

10/01/2017 18:27:31

Hi Chris

I think my Taranis must have died. Just did as you suggested , it started loading some software and now all that happens is the speaker sounds like a machine gun and nothing else happens.

10/01/2017 18:13:04

Andy, found path setting in "set up communications" path is now set correctly.

tried write firmware to tx. error message "new f/w not compatible with one currently installed" back again.

10/01/2017 17:55:37

sorry Andy, Just downloaded dfu-util and installed.

can't find the burn prefs in companion

10/01/2017 17:23:49

Thanks Chris

10/01/2017 17:13:44

Done that and it reports ' directory missing"

directories on sd card are bmp, docs.firmware, models, sounds, videos, logs, eeproms

and files sadie_xp.exe and sadie.exe (probably left over when i had a pc)

and companion9xinstall_vt1.32.exe
