Just an addition test the stabiliser in flight first when you have control to see if it reacts the way you want it too.

Many thanks Denis and Til for the advice. This project is on hold for a while, but I think I will start off by trying it on a straight aileron model (my Middle Phase) before trying it on a full house glider. This is because there are assumptions in the software which you have to work around, and so the closer I am to what is expected, the easier this will be. Once (and indeed if) I get the simple case working I can then progress to the more complex ones. My favourite assumption was that the throttle should be low on setup, which for a glider is an amusing concept, especially as I use channel 3 for a lost model beeper! Anyway, I'll write something if I make progress.

Devon. I've got a S6R in a multiplex blizzard glider and it works really well. I launch with it in stablisation mode and it goes out level and will climb when in lift. I calibrated it with a slight nose down attitude. With spoilerons up and stablisation on it still flies straight and level with no pitch compensation. I find the self level mode a bit of a pain to fly as you have to hold the stick inputs in or it will auto level, OK if on a momentary switch to get you out of trouble. The receiver is just behind the battery in the nose so nowhere near the c of g.

I found these videos (the first six) particularly useful. Having said that I wouldn't bother again with this receiver - the effort in my eyes isn't simply warranted.

Actually my problem was hardware related, Conrad. The Taranis I was using was an early one with an outdated RF board. My second Taranis bound with the SR6 without a problem. Unfortunately I lost both the receiver and the Riot to which it was fitted when I flew it into a cloud (the only one around and considerably lower than I thought!) when I was testing it in anger and flying 3 mistakes high (one mistake too high as it turned out).

Many thanks, Mark, for what is valuable information. I still intend to try this, but am currently tied up with other stuff.

FrSky have posted new firmware for the S6R and S8R receivers.
This fixes the problem with only some RxNums working. It also fixes a problem where SPort data from the Tx didn't "pass through" the SxR.
I've just flashed a S8R (with the FCC version) and tested with RxNums from 0 to 10, all worked. This is with an early X9D+ twhere only some RxNums worked before.

Thank-you Mike for spotting this. I've uploaded the new software into my S8R and can now bind it on channels that would not work before with my Taranis (which is the ancient X9D, without the plus). Haven't had chance to check it out for range and full functionality, but it seems to be an advance,
