It wasn't the fact that he posted in this thread too early, it was the fact he uploaded his vid to YouTube in 2012...

I had been struggling getting the PPM from Dragonlink to my APM. The DL v2 docs are really clear about PPM being output on Ch. 12...

But, I am getting PPM out of Channel 9. Hope this helps, feedback appreciated. So it finally works, correctly. (Video antenna not placed yet.)

I know there was a some production confusion on the first runs of the V2 RX, i.e. Channels 1-8 being labeled backwards, etc. Perhaps there is something weird about the PPM output too.

The PPM output is determined by firmware, do you happen to have a V2RX for an older V1 radio? Do you have any other receivers?

Perhaps... I don't know what TX I have. Bought both together a few months ago.

I haven't tried to upgrade any firmware.

Did you buy used or new? If new, then you should have the newest firmare and Ch12 PPM. The V1 Tx case had one rounded edge, the V2 Tx cases are all square edges.

I have a V1 system (Rx is a 12c model I believe) with V2 firmware. Ch 9 or 12 for PPM?

Bought new direct from DL store, on August 21 2012..

Not looking at the case, but its all squared, i think and has the dragon logo screened on....

My RX is a v2, one of the one that has channels 1-8 labelled backwards.

that is a v2.7 RX... you may have the batch that has PPM on CH9... try both CH9 and CH12 for PPM (plug a servo in... if it chatters its ppm)
