Hi Mike, sorry for posting here, but your InBox seems to be full.

Could you please confirm dispatch of my DragonLink RX? I ordered a new one on 3rd December.

Many thanks,

Ian

Planes and quad copters fall from the sky when using the DL. The DL has been on a DX8, 9x and a 9xER all with the same problem. Changed Id calibrated rebound etc etc nothing has helped. The only thing that works is my stupid Specktrum.

my DLv2 isnt updated and nothing falls from the sky, I think you may have other issues?

Only issue I have with DL is it interfers with my 1.3g VRX bad, now I have to buy filters

I am open for suggestions. The quad and planes will drop flying los with out any fpv gear on. If I run specktrum los I have no problems.

you bound and calibrated them? How was your range check? Did you get your 20-30'? (I get more), when your tx and rx are powered up what do you get for lights on the rx? and are they solid?

What antenna, lets see the setup

The thing I had to figure out was the lights and times given in the manual for settings were not 100% for me.

On the bixler I get 40-45 paces on a range check, antenna is out the tail with the center pin facing up. I am using the antennas that came with the system. I change id, calibrate, then bind. I have a solid blue light when all is done. Even if it were a range issue, it should not be happening as close as it does. I can post pictures tomorrow, but I don't believe it is necessary. I have the very first v2 out, so this is why I want to do the firmware. It is the only thing left to do.

May be you have a problem with your power supply, don't you change anything else other than DL when you switch your radio gear ?

On mine I only add a small LC filter, and it was enough to kill the power to 4.6V when my servos were moving, may be your LOS radio can go as low as 4.6v, but DL doesn't like.

You should check that

Had several different power supplies including a CC bec, plus it does it on the quad copter. I have tried every possible combination, the dragon link is the only common item between the combinations, which is why I am wanting to do the firmware. I still need to find out why I get the crc error trying to update.

A stupid question, but have you tried to download again from dragonlab the firmware, may be the file is corrupt ?

Yeah, unfortunately had to download it on each of the 3 computers I tried it on. This is the first batch of the v2 which also leads me to think it is a firmware (I even had the choice of a v1 or v2 system when I bought ).
