These things are so buggy sometimes I wonder if they even turn these things on at all for an op-check. Kinda like how every one of their helis is "factory test flown"...even the ones DOA out of the box.

I'm having problem (a bug). If i switch on the receiver before i finished the checklist in the dx18 ... The whole screen becomes blank and all screeninfo seems to be displayed in the upper few lines of the screen (mixed up).

My guess:
It wants to popup the telemetry screen but can't because the checklist isn't finished. The reason why it wants to show the telemetryscreen is that i have a speedsensor installed which is set on minimum speed alarm.

I can make a movie if it's not clear what i mean?

Actually, I'd appreciate it if you did make a video. I'd like to see that for myself. I'll have to check when I get my DX18 back. If I don't just up and sell it first, that is.

Hi Andy,

Clear doesn't work.
I have to press the scroll button several time (= finish checklist blind).

I will make a movie tomorrow.

In the mean time you should INH modulation during Pre-Flight. This will cause the radio to only transmit once the check list is complete and both check list and telemetry won't interfere with each other.

Thanks, FC. That's a good suggestion for now.

I have pre-flight on one of my setup but being that I think the pre-flight is a safety thing I also have it setup where the radio does not transmit until my pre-flight is done.

It's a small list of settings selected that if you do will trigger an issue since the radio is trying to show both alarms/warnings at the same time.

I am sure now that Andy is aware of it it will get the proper attention but in the mean time the easy fix is to INH modulation. Radio and telemetry will only be transmitted once the check list is completly.

This way you still have your check list and telemetry alarm.

@ crvnation - You can easily reproduce it if you set everything right according to the information he provided. It will be much better for you since you will see it first hand.

If you don't have all the components needed to reproduce it then why so interested?
Never understood why some people are so interested in issues that don't even affect them, why go looking for them if it doesn't affect you.

Just curious.
