Will the EE have any trouble picking between 5.8 and 1.3? I've got a big ol battery for my GS and I fly both freq, was planning to connect them to EE not for diversity, but just for the simplicity of not having to change configs when changing aircraft.

Granted, I forgot to mention I have the RC305 5.8 RX that has been having signal selection issues. If it were to change to my 1.3 RX in the middle of a flight that would be sub-optimal.

If you have a 5.8 on one input

and a 1.3 on another input,

and you do not receive signal from the unused frequency, then it will not switch to

the frequency that is not receiving a signal.

You could go one step further and put each receiver on its' own switch, or unplug the barrel connector (power) to the unused receiver.

Yeah but there is/was issues with the RC305's switching, hence this testing..

Update not possible


Hey guys,

a few weeks have passed since this firmware update was released... Can you guys confirm that this firmware update solves the switching problem?
Is it still working for you, V_Okto?

I experienced this switching as well... unfortunately, I canīt perform the firmware update: After connecting the EagleEyes I get the message that a new firmware is available. But then an error message pops up: "An unsupported operation was attempted..." (something like that).

I tried to reinstall it a few times without success. Is it necessary to delete the settings stored in the "documents folder"? I only deleted the installation folder before the new installation so far... What the hell am I doing wrong here?

cheers

HI Sebastian,

Sorry for the issue. I think the issue may be with the German language version of the latest alpha software. Can you confirm whether you are using English or German version?

Hi Sebastian,

iīve updated, but not tested the fw due too bad weather. updating was easy as usual.
just a few thoughts about your issue.
try to uninstall the et-soft with the windows unininstall utility. all your personal settings will stay on the pc. then do a new install of the new soft using the same directory than before.
try to connect the ee to external power supply.
hope this helps.

Hi Sebastian,

Sorry about that - would you be able to switch from the German to English software language temporarily? We will get this resolved soon.

Hi V_Okto, sorry to hear about that. I'm assuming that you updated the EE firmware with the software you installed?

Yes, I would like to see the video. One thing that I've started working on is firmware that lets you set a "channel affinity" which will switch back to the preferred channel when both appear equal. Sometimes fuzzy video appears ok to the EE, depending on how bad it is. We have another project (hardware) that may further address the issue in these cases.
