Fat Shark Predator - head tracker cables for other TX's?
 
I just got in a key component of my first FPV system, the Fat Shark Predator goggles...

Question: They come with a nice plug and play head tracker cable IF you are apprarently a Futaba user... I'm using a HiTec Aurora 9 - I'm assuming you would use the trainer port and modify this cable?

What are you guys doing for specific head tracker cables for the Fat Shark? Is there a wiring diagram posted somewhere? If the trainer port is used I would need to do some soldering and splicing?...

Thanks :)

Hi CatusJackSlade,
The Aurora 9 doesn't support the head tracker. The Aurora 9 only has selective channel assignment for the 4 primary controls (not for the higher channels 5-9).

Hummm, that's too bad..

... I'm not sure what you mean about the primary channels only being selective... you mean only the primaries can produce a signal through the trainer port?... as to where the Futaba sends all channel info through the trainer plug?

So is there a hack or work around?

Thx

the head tracker sends signals to the transmitter. You need a radio that will let the student radio(headtracker in this case) control channels 5-6 or 6-7, but not 1-4.

this lets the head tracker control pan and tilt, and your radio control the rest of the aircraft.

I don't personally know of any work around....

I asked in another thread, The DX8 seems to work with the fatshark headtracker, I currently have a JR 12x and it has the same single plug like the DX8, will the 12X work?

does your JR TX allow for selectable trainer functions?

#7 tkoguy Jan 13, 2012 12:13 AM

not sure what that is , never heard or use it on this high end Radio..lol

#8 gundamnitpete Jan 13, 2012 12:19 AM

I know even less about that radio than you do. I run futaba :)

#9 tkoguy Jan 13, 2012 03:14 PM

Fat shark can u tell me if the 12x will work?

#10 gundamnitpete Jan 13, 2012 04:54 PM

#11 tkoguy Jan 13, 2012 05:14 PM

I found it and yes it does. But I only see channels 1-4.

sounds like that JR transmitter does not support head tracking :(

Anyone knows what is Fatshark Predator headtrack pinout. Need to make a cable for Futaba 7cap. A connection diagram would be nice too.

So, ordered one of these and waiting now for BIS. Will it work with the DX7? Thanks.
