Keep you eye for an update, the Profi has just had a further update which has added Multiplexs Safe-Link which allows you to lock a Rx to specific model memories and they've advised that this is coming to the Cockpit Sx.

Ooh, I like the sound of that, something else to stop me being an idiot!

'...allows you to lock a Rx to specific model memories...'

I'm going to show my ignorance and ask wazzat then?

Also where do you find Safe Link on the updated Profi?

Also, how do you find out what the latest TX upgrade does? I can't find an explanation anywhere.

Told you I was ignorant. wink

I'm subscribed to the Multiplex newsletters, but you can also find news here https://www.multiplex-rc.de/aktuelles/news.html and there are also some facebook pages too, and the Multiplex technical forum, some of these are in German but google chrome does a good job of translating these.

Safe link is settings menu, just underneath binding. Safe link i like a version of Model Match where if you select the wrong model it won't link up, the difference is that there are only 50 safe link slots so you can have a RX linked to multiple model memories, Multiplex have said they have provided this as they know some modellers like to have different set ups on a single model and his saves having to rebind each time they use a different set up.

Information on various updates is added to the manuals section in the Multiplex launcher program, but as is usual he manual updates do lag the actual firmware by a few days.

Hi Frank, have you any inside news on when there might be a Version 3.30 English manual available for the Profi TX? I see there is a German version available but not an English one as yet.

No idea, I don't have any spies in Multiplexlaugh

They said it would be coming shortly for the Cockpit Sx https://www.multiplex-rc.de/aktuelles/news/detail/safe-link.html (use google chrome to translate).

I was just reading Tony Nijhuis's Harrier project update in this months RCME where he has 2 receivers which switch with a micro switch for switching from hover on the flight controller and forward flight, this is something you could do on the Profi with the safelink switching facility.

One of the guys I fly with is really impressed with the Cockpit SX9 and has decided to sell his Spektrum DX9 and buy the SX9.

I have the latest version Cockpit SX (the C3)and having seen, heard, and tried mine a clubmate has just sold his Spektrum gear and bought a Cockpit SX. I sold my previous Cockpit SX (a C2) to another clubmate who has also now sold his Spektrum gear.

Hi David

I have several of the RX5 Light receivers, including one I've had in my Easy Star for nigh on three years. Not a bit of bother, and plenty enough range for me.

Battery life on the Cockpit is stated as 25 hours or so on a full charge. Certainly I can enjoy several afternoon sessions per week before I even bother to look at what stage the charge is.

Styling is pretty much a subjective issue. After all, some folk go out and actually buy a Nissan Joke Juke.

Ikura, a mate took a photo of me holding my Cockpit SX the other day as he said it looked as if I was holding it upside down. I think it's the lack of aerial that makes it appear a bit strange at first but you soon get used to it.

I have loads of the cheap RX-5 receivers and they have all performed perfectly. I also have some RX-5's with telemetry and one RX-7 dual rx. Yesterday I was flying a 2 metre electric glider (fitted with an RX-5 single rx with telemetry) and hit some really strong lift. When the speech announced I had passed the 500m altitude mark I bottled out and spun down! I took this photo showing the maximum readings after I had landed. 520m is 1706 feet!

Hi David

I can't see an updated Royal coming anytime soon David as they've already done it just 12 months or so back, fitting Profi stick units along with a few other little tweaks.

Yes, it's a fairly quick charge time. Mine takes slightly longer though as I charge using a little USB plug adaptor thingy I bought for the job, which has charge rate options of both 2.1amp or 1 amp. I use the latter.

And yes, the *no aerial* thing does take a little while to become accustomed.

I use the SM Modellbau UniSens-E one and it's pretty small, simply plugs in between the battery and esc. It sends lots of info, current, capacity used, rpm, voltage, as well as the vario and altimeter. My glider is a foamy, an Art Tech ASK-21.

Hi Andy,

That looks excellent. I'll go take a look at one.

Is it easy to configure?

Very easy, even though it's all in German!, but English instructions here. If all you want is a Vario you can make one for around £12 with an Arduino board and bariometric sensor, I've made a few now.
