Fatshark Dominator and DX8 Headtracking.
A few days ago I received a cable from Gregory from Fat Shark and tonight I hooked my AR8000 back into my Twinstar II.
It really was quite simple to get communication between the devices.
First off, setup the Trainer area of your DX8.
Turn on holding the roller and go to the trainer menu, click.
Then you may see that it is "inhibited" so select that and change to "Programmable Master".
I set everything to master except "ax2" and "ax3" which I set to slave.
That means when I hold down the trainor button on the upper left, I can turn my head and adjust the camera hooked to the pan and tilt of the receiver.
One cable hooks in the headtracker connection under the right side of the Dominators. The other end into the slave plug under the DX8.
Have not calibrated or tried to set center yet, but can confirm that when I tilt up and down it moves up and down, and when I turn, it turns.
Setting the head tracking channels in the Dominator is easy as well.
Hold down the HT button on top and then plug in power. It will start to beep so let go of the button.
To set to channels 7 and 8 it was 6 beeps, so 1...then 2....and so on. Right in the pause after 6 beeps you press the HT button again and that is it.
Then plug your pan and tilt servos into aux2 and aux3 on the receiver and it works.
Got to say that I was pretty impressed with Fat Shark service in this.
Once he was aware there was a demand, he got a cable to me to try out. Obviously he dedicates his company towards the needs of his customers and does listen to what they are asking for.

I will send a message to Gregory and find out for you. He kind of whipped this one up for me to make sure that is worked so will post his response on here as soon as I get it. I know he is 13 hours ahead of central time so will probably speak to him tonight.

Video of hooking it up? What type of video are you looking for?
banzi28. Great question, but from what I have seen, the head tracking gets moved to the long range box such as the ezUHF.
