With the upper and lower limit set for the minimosd remove the show raw values and you get a percentage.
ah ok will try that thanks a bunch

question regarding the failsafe for the RX, in the middle setting up DOSD at the moment stumble across this

Quote:
Note that if you are using an advanced receiver which has its own failsafe built into the PPM stream (such as the Dragon Link), the DOSD+ will never know that the receiver has gone into failsafe and will not indicate as such. In that case, you will need to set the failsafe on the radio itself, which takes precedence over the DOSD+'s failsafe. It is still a good idea to set the failsafe though, just in case.
is this the same for RL?

Yes. In the days of 35/72Mhz FM Rxs, if the Tx signal was lost, the PWM stream on
every channel goes missing, or gets corrupted and that can be detected (many lost
model locators used this). In the modern age of 2.4Ghz and 433Mhz packet based RC
systems, the PWM stream on each channel never gets corrupted. If the Rx loses the
signal from the Tx it either keeps repeating the last valid frame received (hold last
position) or jumps to a preset failsafe.

Has anybody tried the rangelink with DT-3K Hybrid Head-tracker and used the ppm inject with a dx7 to used head-tracking on channel 8 and 9? Direction say it can do ppm inject and ppm create. To over wright last 2 channels or create a additional two channels.

I think it'll only create new channels if the incoming PPM stream contains less than 8 channels.
So it would add ch 5 and 6 to a 4ch radio, but is not going to create 9th channel on
an 8ch ppm stream.

You could be right, read it some more and saw this:

- Compatible with all 2-6 channel Basic transmitters with PPM-INJECT technology
- Compatible with all 7+ channel Pro transmitters with PPM-CREATE technology

Looks like would Inject 2 new channels for Basic transmitters and over wrights for "Pro" transmitters. So still screwed with the dx7 using up all channels with lights and aux1 and aux2 for eagletree.

I'd have used the terms "inject" and "create" the other way around, but I'm
pretty sure it works the way I described.

Could try Channel Wizard to create new channels just for your other knobs and switches.

First flight out of 2.4G world today, out to a mile, and everything worked as it should have. So im a happy camper.

One concern i have though - my antenna is mounted on my tail, and it appears that the bottom part of the antenna (goes against the curve of the antenna) has lost about 1mm of length from rubbing on the ground in landings. I have since adjusted it so that it wont happen anymore, but my question is if losing 1mm or maybe 2 mm at max on the bottom part of the antenna will have a really bad effect on my range?

Your plane started to autotune your rx antenna SCNR.

quick question. 'in normal operation does the light on the tx and rx stay on steady like my spektrum or does it flash really fast." mine flashes. It seems to work ok but I expected a steady light to be on and the manual doesn't really say and I guess I missed it here if it was covered.
Thanks guys.
