Mine were also 12 channel and i am using up to channel 10 so far with 0 problems with V1--as long as both DL an RX have the same firmware they should be compatible.

When you go to buy your receiver on the DL site you have the option to select what firmware receiver you want,it gives you the dates of the systems released so just choose the receiver that falls in the date you got your DL

I have finished designing my 3D printed Dragonlink Tx adapters. I can now cater for people using;
Either V1 or V2 DL Tx
Using it with either a Hitec A9, Turnigy 9X, Futaba or Jr Module type radios.

I also now have black and white ABS .

First the good news, the latest firmware update by Chris is PERFECT Everything works well, and is just a very refined, most trouble free operation ever !!! All Dragon Links Since 9 Oct 2012 have been shipping with this latest firmware version.

For the past few days, we have been working on a very large batch of Dragon Links, to assure we always have plenty of stock Production is going very well, and I have been putting a bunch of time into testing them. You guys will be very happy with the Dragon Links, the best we have ever made !!!

Now for the bad news , I have been in production for the last several days, so I am 3 days behind on PM's here and have not posted or even read all the posts here in this thread recently. I will catch up on this and fix anyone having issues this weekend instead of going and flying FPV No worries, we will make sure everyone that has issues is taken care of, and gets up and flying quickly.

Mike
Mike, my buddy orderd a DL system last week and today he is worried it might have been forgoten in the mail. I got mine in under 4 days. We are planning to fly soon.


And i bought mine in july, should i update my DLv2 to newer firm wear? It works fine now.

Hi,

You need the latest firmware, which started shipping 7 April 2012. If you were from the group of upgrades in Germany that I did all together, I remember you ! This was the first batch of upgrades with the new firmare.

Hi,

If it works fine, there is no need to update. The things we did with the updates are head tracking, micro PPM futaba support, and micro power mode so that you do not need a dummy load for range testing anymore. If you are happy with the way your system is operating, then no need to update. The range and resistance to interference remains the same on all the Version 2 firmware versions since 7 April 2012.

Any firmware before 7 April 2012 I do recommend to update...

Mike

Hi mike, Sorry to be a PITA, I have a V1 DL Tx, I sent it off for an update with 2 Rx's (I believe the version before the one thats shipping now). You might remember it. I sent it off at the beginning of the year and the postman decided to do a few months flying with it before it got to you. After its disappearing act it finally showed up at yours, It was updated and sent back. But im not sure with which version as im looking to buy some new Rx's. Thanks!

Firmware versions are:

0 B.C. - 7 Dec 2011
7 Dec 2011 - 7 April 2012
7 April 2012 - Present

If your equipment is in the same date rage, it is compatible. If a TX is in one date range, and an RX in another of the above date ranges, it will never bind

This is for the date the firmware is programmed. So if I have upgraded your equipment, you should use the date of the upgrade, not when it was purchased.

Yes, very well. Order the Futaba Trainer plug and it will take you all of 1 minute to get hooked up
