Yes, just edited my post after looking the manual for the radio up online. Has standard trainer plug on the back though.

VIDEO CONTEST RESULTS

Sorry I am late on posting this everyone, I actually went out and flew some FPV for the past 2 days.. This was the first time I have gotten to fly in about 2 months I got some great video and I think I am going to win this weeks contest

The cold weather must have you guys staying in and not flying, there were only 3 videos for last weeks contest. The winner is: FPV Skywalker Triple-Camera Flight - #16 808 V2 HD Keychain Cam on Wingtip with 339 views by GlassDogAngle. Send me your complete information, including what firmware version you have and I will send your free receiver to you.

Mike

DRAGON LINK WEEKLY VIDEO CONTEST !!!

Win a FREE Dragon Link Receiver

We will be giving away a FREE Dragon Link Receiver EVERY WEEK... The rules are simple:

1. Post an FPV video flown with Dragon Link on YouTube that has " Dragon Link " , or " Flown with Dragon Link " or like statement, PROMINENTLY displayed at the BEGINNING of the video for at least 3 seconds. Having something like " Flown With Dragon Link " in the title of the video will also be acceptable. Having Dragon Link included in an equipment list or mixed in with other things will NOT qualify. Please read below for more details on this.

2. Post your video in the FPV video thread located here:
FPV Videos For those that want to see what FPV flying is like check this out [Part 6]

3. Also post your video here in this thread so that I will know to judge it.

4. Video Must be posted on YouTube. VIMEO or other video servers will NOT qaualify for the contest.

5. Videos must be posted on Monday, 26 November 2012 or LATER to qualify for this weeks contest.

6. The video that gets the highest view count at the end of the week, Sunday night, 2 December 2012 wins !!!


NOTES:

Running this contest every week costs me a lot of money " Flown with Dragon Link " must be prominent in the beginning of the video, not hidden in the middle or at the end. Having " Flown with Dragon Link " merely included in an equipment list will NOT qualify. If you are not willing to make the statement " Flown with Dragon Link " noticible in your video, I am most certinaly not willing to go to the expense and time of manufacturing, and shipping you a free receiver. This rule will be strictly enforced !!!

This is not a " Best Video " contest, the winner will be determined by which one has the most number of views at the end of the week ! The video can be as old as you like, but it must be posted as a new unique video so that we can count the number of views. Videos can also be used twice, but must be posted as new every week so that everyone has an equal chance every week to get the most number of views for that week.

This contest will be run EVERY WEEK, so if you do not win this week, no worries, try again !!!

Mike

4.) power off both, receiver and transmitter
5.) power on transmitter without pressing the button
6.) wait until the solid green LED is shown on the transmitter
7.) power on the receiver

On the v2 receiver with the LEDs, the status LED is off and the link LED is on. Is that sequence correct, as I haven't found if the LED on the transmitter should changed from blinking to solid or so to indicate that the binding was successfull.

thanks
Is your V1 Tx upgrade to V2, if so it's not the same procedure

Should be able to get the futaba square plug cord to go direct to the trainer output of that radio.
I guess nobody is using the same radio to confirm that it works fine.
Thanks for your reply! Since this radio is a 2.4ghz with no modules to pull out, I wasn't sure if I could use this radio with dragonlink. I've got it on order and still waiting for it to come in but wanted to get and idea if it would work. My hopes were that someone here is using this transmitter and was able to access all 8 channels via dragonlink. Also, if I want to use an external battery to power the DL transmitter, is there a wiring diagram that shows how to connect this together? I'm not sure I want to power the DL TX with the batteries from the Futaba T8J.

Thanks!
Glenn

It's still a V1 without software upgrade. That might be the problem, but I couldn't find other instructions for the binding, so I used those:
http://www.dragonlinkstore.com/v2/node/11

Do I need to bind the v1 differently?

Thanks

Regarding external power, you might want to check out Chris Seto's board that he sells for $8 (see post below).

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...ostcount=14303

It separates the power and the PPM signals into separate connectors. I bought a couple but haven't used them yet. He indended them for use when mounting the DL away from the RC transmitter.

It can't work V1 et V2 are not compatible, you should send your system for upgrade, it's just shipping cost !

@Mike - Any update on my upgraded DL system? I still haven't seen it. I think it was lost in the mail and must start a search so can you please get back to me on this? It's been a month now. All I need is the tracking#.
