ER9X Pan & Tilt Setup
Need mixes for your ER9X flashed FlySky or Turnigy 9X so you can set a throttle hold and use the throttle/rudder stick to pan and tilt your camera?
Here are my mixes to help get you there:
R +100% Switch(ELE) noTrim Curve(c3)
R +100% Switch(ELE) noTrim Curve(c4)
CH05: R +100%CH5 Switch(ID2) noTrim Curve (c1)
CH06: +100%P3 noTrim (Front Knob on Transmitter)
CH07: +100%RUD Switch(ELE) noTrim
+100%P1 noTrim (To use the Left Top Knob on the radio for Tilt)
CH08: +100%THR Switch(ELE) noTrim
+100%P2 noTrim (To use the Right Top Knob on the radio for Pan)
Curve 1 -100, -100, -100, -100, -100 (for 3 pos switch)
Curve 3 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 (Half Throttle)
Curve 4 0, 0, 0 ,0 ,0 (Don't move the rudder)
CH3 AIR Value -125 ((Make sure your Extended Limits is checked on the Setup Tab))
CH5 ID0 Value 100
When you switch the ELE switch to on, several things happen. First, the throttle is set to 60%. Curve 3 is where you set what percentage you want for throttle.
Curve 4 does not allow the rudder move when the rudder stick is moved. You don't want your rudder turning you while panning for example. Channel 7 is tied to your rudder stick. This channel is plugged into my Pan Servo.
Channel 8 controls my tilt and the throttle stick controls it.
WARNING!!! Remove your prop before you test this. It will turn the motor on!
Need a Return to Home switch for your throttle:
Go to your Safety Switches and add your switch to Channel 3. Set the value to -125. I know for Eagle Tree you can set this lower range and the OSD recognizes anything below -100 as out of range and sets RTH.
I have an EEPE file that I am using for my Bixler. Tested and works fine. Still trying to get used to using the stick for pan and tilt but I like it!
Let me know if you see something not right here.

I made a few changes:
I decided to also use the two top knobs on the radio for pan and tilt as well as the mix that keeps the engine running and uses the sticks. One thing that I found is that you have to calibrate your sticks and knobs to get all of this to work correctly. Especially if you are using the P3 knob for the Guardian.
Before calibrating the knobs, put them at half travel so when you do calibrate, the radio will see the full travel. If you don't do this, your Guardian will be stuck on a gain setting of 4 and not move down to 0.
Do this procedure also for the remaining knobs so you get all of the travel out of your pan and tilt servos.
The EEPE file also sets the throttle hold switch for either 80% or 100% dual rates. My roll rates were way too fast and I may set them even lower.
