It will not connect to computer or field programmer.

Now what????

I will try to put it back on full Rx tomorrow and see what happens.

If anybody has any ideas, suggestions or the same problem they have fixed please let me know.

Thanks

Perhaps it's await the bind with the Tx. Try binding again but make sure the Tx is not too close to the gyro.

My FBL software does not set the RX mode (yet). Did you use the Tarot version 3.0 software to change the type of RX that you have connected the satellite?
If not, as you say, you may need to connect to the conventional RX, then change the setting with the Tarot software before using the Satellite.

I have just gone through the settings with the Tarot software and discovered that there is only 1 difference for the configuration and that is the receiver mode setting (plus some extra values for the swash/aircraft type). So it shouldn't be a biggie to change the FBL software.

Great news!
I've managed to revive my CX-3X1000!
It's been in a digital coma since I tried to put the Tarot firmware on it.
KY-Model and eHIROBO have both very kindly sent me the bin file of the original CX firmware for the 3X1000. I re-flashed it and it's working again! Phew...

As soon as I get the OK from them I will post the file on here.

FWIW. I was so hung up trying to get the zyx set up that I was overlooking the obvious. Turns out that my belt was loose. Keep it simple. (me being the stupid one not you guys )

Excellent news! Thanks. I hope they agree.

I note in the Tarot v3 software, they say that if for any reason the firmware update is interrupted, the gyro can be restored by selecting the coms port and repeating the flash. I can understand this, because the protected bootloader starts first and looks to see if the button is pressed, before it executes the main firmware. It's good to know that it's very safe to flash these gyros.

CX3X1000 Firmware


Firmware is now available at ky-model.com

Note: May just be the original firmware for unbrick purposes.

Good news Mike!
I don't know if it was me who prompted them or they were about to release it anyway.

Many thanks to KY-Model for their excellent service.

Quick question, and not trying to be a smart!$&@.
I notice alot of people trying to crossflash their copterx gyros and then messing them up. Why not just buy the Tarot in the first place? Is there somthing better about the copterx?

Tarot came out with a firmware update that was supposed to address a couple of issues, one of which it sounded as if a few people had encountered, so it seemed like a good idea at the time
