Quick (dumb) question: I am using a futaba 8fg. When connecting and using Dlink via the futaba port, will my remote also emmit 2.4ghz signal, or will that be cut off?

Thanks!

Does anybody know which wires to hook up to run the RSSI out on the Rx to the temp 1 input on the eagle tree OSD. I tried the top (PPM side) on the DL to the center pin on the temp 1 input on the OSD and it doesn't work. Any ideas

I just changed the i.d. and re-bind the rx and it seems the problem is solved! I knew it was something silly and simple ... I had to change the i.d. 2 times for the RSSI is stable but now broadcasts in micropower the problem happens there even keeping very close to the rx tx ... strange thing, the important thing is that I have solved the problem thanks to you and I can finally fly quiet, tomorrow I will make a long-distance flight to make sure I communicate fully and because the results of the flight.
finally a smile on my face ... Thanks to all

The TH9x, by Turnigy / Skyfly / bunch of names...

It is great when flashed with ER9x... my whole setup including the programming board was $100 and gives me way more mixes and capabilities than Ill ever need... And works in 12ch mode with DL!

took a year to Flysky er9x passed and I have not seen anything better, cheaper and with infinite possibilities, the same station is as Turnigy Clone and other Chinese brands, the fly sky seems to be the best quality construction that has as many users.

Frustrated Dragon Link Users

I woke up this morning and checked the Dragon Link thread to see if there was anything I could learn or share.

Sounded like there were alot of frustrated users out there, so I shut my computer down and went flying with my Dragon Link and made a video (below). I am sure you guys will get your problems fixed soon.

For now, cheer up and watch this fantastic video, from a guy who was just as pissed off and frustrated as you guys were a couple short weeks ago.

NOTE: I ALREADY WON A FREE DRAGON LINK RX last week, so this brand new video below IS NOT AN ENTRY FOR THIS WEEK'S CONTEST!

Requiem For A Dream - 3.5km GoPro FPV Flown With Dragon Link (9 min 19 sec)


Hang in there, when you get your Dragon Link Working, it will all be worth it!

Just remember that Mike and Dragon Link is like Steve Jobs was to Apple Computers (except without all the funding).
Yeah, everyone was complaining about the constant OS changes and the wooden computer cases at first...

Thanks guys, I'll do some research starting there! I really appreciate your time for the help, I know it's probably a dumb/frequenty asked question for you...

You could go Turnigy or pick up a used Futaba 8U 9c or 10C (Module one), 12z, 12Fg, Jr 9303 (module one)10x (but limited programming) you will only get 8 channels but super easy to hookup via the module pins.
I think chris is working on getting more channels with some Futabas
Ive tried all the ones listed above.

I just picked up a 10C that the owner had hardly used.

Nice!! Thanks for the info! 8ch is more than I need now for my Zeph.
So how do you stop the transmitter to emmit it's original frequency? (I know, another dumb question...!)

Thanks again!
