Old Pilot --- FUSTRATED

Hi guys

Really frustrated here. I have a TH9X with a smartieparts board installed. I would like to flash ut to ER9X. Problem I am having is finding the ER9X software and finding instructions on how to flash it with the smartieparts board. All websites that I have found have been either discontinued or show how to flash it but don't say what their flashing, where to get the software or not using the board but have a wired in an EEPROM editor.

So I guess what I need is where to find the ER9X software and how to flash it with the smartieparts board.

If anybody could point this old frustrated pilot in the right direction I would appreciate it.

No need to go it alone. There's plenty of us here willing to help.

Have a look at this site. It should contain all the info you need to flash your 9x.
http://code.google.com/p/eepe/

You will need eepe to flash ER9X to the Tx. eepe can be downloded from here. http://eepe.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/eePeInstall.zip
ER9X can be downloaded from here. http://er9x.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/er9x.hex

This is a video tutorial from the above site.

Sorry you are having so much trouble, but it's only difficult the first time around.

I'm not familiar with the Smartieparts board, so I can't really help you there. There seems to be some good instructions on what to do on the SP board site, though. Perhaps you can glean some ideas there.

Maybe you can run it in "compatibility mode" Perhaps it is not Windows 8.1 compatible.

I had a similar avrdude issue when I upgraded laptops to 8.1, and the solution wasn't too bad, (but I forgot how i did it). The best thing to do is go to this thread and ask your questions: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1266162 It is a pretty massive thread, and you can probably use the search function to find the discussions on getting avrdude to work with Win8 but if you ask the question on last page, I'm sure one of the gurus will point you to the correct area. It is a pretty common problem for those of us not computer programmer geeks. My self included!

I should note that I have a 9x with smartie parts board and love it! It has been rock solid, never lost a bind, or had a brown out or any of the other occasional problems other protocols seem to have. Range is way beyond my vision. The er9x programming is reallly intuitive once you learn the "language" which is pretty easy. I was able to set up crow on my 8ft scratch built glider in about 20minutes from figuring out what "crow" meant to being able to execute it on the plane.
