A Daemon in Linux is just a worker process. I think Ian is a bot.

Taking my Rangelink for it's maiden tomorrow... wish me luck.

Ah thanks. Was aware of the latter, not the former.

I am going to do a hot swappable system to change between the 2.4g and UHF, are there any issues regarding the 2.4g tx aerial soaking in some radiation when using the uhf? Of course I will put the 2.4g sideways when using the uhf.

Can I wire this system per headphone jack directly to the turnigy 9x trainer port?

I am in the same position as you and I think the answer is yes and no, yes you can receive ppm through the trainer port but not power, also not sure how you get ppm through there without taking module out, so my idea is to pull module out and have it velcroed to the battery cover below (my tx aerial is hard wired to module) and make up a plug to connect into the tx module pins.

This also allows using the tx with my 2.4g receivers when not doing FPV.

Maybe the wrong approach? Happy to hear opinions.

well i have already done the resistor mod in the stock turnigy 2.4ghz module so that i may receive PPM out through the trainer port for simulator purposes. i would think given that i did the mod in the module and not the turnigy transmitter itself, that i would have to keep the 2.4ghz module in the radio for me to get PPM out through the trainer port. this leads me to wonder if its such a great idea to keep the 2.4ghz module in the turnigy radio, simultaneously transmitting 2.4ghz with my RL UHF transmitter (not sure if this is even possible).

lets say the mod was performed on the turnigy 9x radio itself, would i then not be able to get PPM out through the trainer port to send to my RL UHF transmitter, and likewise be able to remove the turnigy 2.4ghz module all together?

i would rather not destroy my stock turnigy 2.4ghx module just to have a clean RL UHF installation, unless of course i can find a 2nd turnigy 2.4ghz module to hack up...

hmmm... anyone?

On Sunday my fpv plane took off for a fun flight above the fog. I did a pre-flight check and all controls were responding as normal. After about 200 meters the plane lost connection to the transmitter which was a Dx8 with a rangelink and flew off at 8.5 A. Both the Tx and Rx are only a few weeks old. The plane basically flew till the battery was exhausted and ended up at 2200 feet high and 22,000 feet away when it finally glided down and crashed. Luckily it had a GPS locator on board so after a 30 minute drive I got it back. The failsafe is set at 0% throttle, so I could not understand why it flew off at 8.5 amps ? Clearly even if it had lost connection it should have defaulted to the failsafe which it did not do. I put a fresh pack in and tested the failsafe, and it was working fine and would cut the power when I disconnected the rangelink. After checking the antenna, I flew it LOS about 300 meters away and everything was fine. Then after much deliberation I put a new pack in and flew it 2km out, and all was fine.

Previously this UHF kit had flown out 4Km no problem, so I considered it properly tested.

I have just spent the last 30 minutes trying to recreate the problem on my bench. but could not. I am no FPV newbie, and this is my second UHF set (I used to have the original chainlink). Now my original chainlink used to have a dodgy failsafe, and if you kept swapping packs it would give half throttle instead of hitting the failsafe. I know Sid improved the Rx software for this very problem with the Chainlink system. Has anyone else had this problem, and had a fly-away rangelink plane?

Its worth saying I don't monitor RSSI, and no I don't think this is an antenna problem. The whole Rangelink kit is only a few weeks old, and was on back order so I assume I have the latest Rx software.

Answering this part of your post, the idea people do the resistor mod inside the tx is so they can use the tx for sim use without unplugging the module all the time, ie unplugging the module sends the ppm signal through the trainer port, so if your discarding the module you don't need to do any mod to the tx at all.

Just need clarification on the power issue though.

There is a ton of info on this subject and everything else you want to know about 9X. Search Turnigy 9X and er9X. You can search posts by Markus123456 too. He is quite an expert on the 9X. I run my RL from the module pins and use the 9X battery which has been upgraded to a LiPo. The whole set up will run for over 3 hours on that battery. You can also go to the king of 9X forums, http://9xforums.com/forum/index.php?...c34b815c5c9568 Btw, I don't believe you need a pull up resistor if you have a new RL Tx. Sid took care of this with a circuit change on the later Tx's.
Best,
Steven
