Confirmed. I have one on my 9x/Er9x with FrSky DJT module. No SD card - display only.

Had I recognized the logging capability potential with the DHT-U, I would have gone that route instead.

Topic not too active, continue my previous post.

I finished the competition season and had several 2nd positions with the T9X.
I got lucky and won the Hungarian National championship in F5J-400-Alti category too.

I am proud

Congratulations!

But wait, how could you be a national champion? You are flying a cheap radio! Don't you need an expensive radio to win big contests?

You posted a switch map and set-up file back in February. Have there been any updates/improvements?

Still using Open9X?

Still using FrSky?

No competition winner here - just someone having fun with this transmitter (with Open TX) for 3 seasons now.

This transmitter saved my plane a few weeks ago. On my second flight, I lost my rudder control (servo) in my RESM ALES plane. Normally, this would be time to pick up pieces flying only elevator and motor (I do know someone whom landed fine in the past successfully but I am not that skilled). Anyway, I use independent servos for spoilers and had previously set them us as spoilerons (not even sure if that is real name but you get the idea). I landed it at my feed and plane was saved. I am not sure what other transmitters or systems (Aurora, Futaba, Airtronics) have the programming flexibility to even do something like this...

Of course the other feature I swear by due to FrSky is the RSSI - which I consider to be a safety feature - it really is good knowing that your receiver is seeing a strong signal from your transmitter when flying way out "there". Flying without this seems like flying with the assumption that I am in control. Nothing like hitting a strong turbulent section of air and KNOWING that it is not the plane or radio but in fact the air.

Hi,

Thank you.
I decided to not change my mapping and version during the season. I had some bad experience with it. Lost my expos and curves one time, almost I have to set up my plane again 2 days before competition day.

I plan to update to the latest opentx and want to try 2 features, one is the snap flap and the second is the throttle on startup then crow for the rest of flight.

One improvement to my radio/thermal flying is to add an old 35Mhz antenna(just ducktape it) and monitoring the windshifts during flight and before start.
If somebody knows how can officially put back 35MHz antenna, dont hold it back, I think for thermalling is must have.

Thats me watching/waitng for windshift before start.

Thank you
Tamas

Guys'
I'm near completion of a full house ALES sailplane and would like some suggestions and help with programing my 9X flashed Turnigy TX.
I'll be using the FrSky module and the 8 channel RX. I have the Smartie Parts board installed and eepe loaded in my pc.
I'm quite new at this programing stuff so please be patient with me if I need a lot of hand holding as I go through this.
My plane has the standard rudder, elevator, ailerons and flaps. I would like to have the motor on the throttle switch, not on the throttle stick.
Thank you in advanced for your help,
Garry

Hi,

I use the trainer switch for the motor and pot2 to control the throttle, 99% its full, but when you need to test then its handy.

Here is my throttle settings
On your channel in the mixes page set

-100% MAX
-100% P2 Switch(TRN)

Be aware it can be +/-100% settings depending your ESC throttle sensing!!!!!!!

Try it carefully it may turn on with full throttle, better to check it first which is your null throttle settings.

Best to play with throttle mixes with the prop removed.

Right now I'm not using the motor battery since I'm just doing the initial set up.
Once I get a template or my programing closer I'll attach the motor battery and make sure that things work the way they need to without a prop on the motor.

Anyone have any good templates out there?

I am fairly newbie to the rc hobby but I love it. I am using the Turnigy 9x for my Flyzone Calypso electric sailplane. Question. What expo rates do you recommend for someone beginner to intermediate on the turnigy 9x?

I use 40% on elevator and rudder and 50 % on ailerons on new planes on my Spektrum.
When I was using the 9x I felt I should go 5% up with the )x compared to the Spektrum to give the same feeling.

But I would say around 50 % would give a good feeling with the plane.

(For me at least)



Cheers

Expo is a very individual thing. There is no need to use expo at all.

I never put expo on rudder for gliders. If I use it at all it is on elevator and ailerons only.

Some may only use expo in thermal settings.

I have a friend who uses reverse expo which makes his glider more responsive.

Just because your radio has a feature does not mean you should use it. It is there to solve a problem or enhance control, but only if you need it.
