Thanks for the info man! will give it a shot.

Here's a link so that you can use the FTDI board instead of wiring it directly to the serial port

Hi, I post a question on an old topic with no answer, so posting also here...

I tried the procedure with a usb/com cable adapter and with a usb/TTL adapter plus a MAX232 inverter.

In both cases I received the same result... I can see the UID and when I press download it shows 2% progress and hangs...

Anybody had the same issue? Any suggestion to progress?

Thanks!

D8R-II Plus Firmware


I am looking for the firmware and flash tool to flash my D8R-II Plus but FRSKY-RC.COM is offline.

Is there someone that already downloaded these or can direct me to a page where I can download these.

I need these to get CPPM and RSSI

My email: [email protected]

Thanks

UPDATE: It was a DNS error. Find the files now. Thanks

Hi, I don't know if I did something wrong, or the PC or the receiver is faulty, but I am unable to upload the code, I do not have the UID, no matter how I connect the receiver to the COM port (tx-tx, rx-rx or tx-rx, even tried 4 different cables, connectors).
Is there anything to do before I can do the described procedure?

just a quick post to thank original poster ( GTiDonavan ) I've just used this thread info to flash my FrSky D4R-II 4ch to allow 27ms timing for 8 channels over CPPM

flashing guide at http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/...Post%3A1001090 suggests FTDI cable with inverted signal but going direct to the serial port worked without a hitch

many thanks!

Draw or write a connection diagram for d4r-II please. I would like to do same thing and don't know how. Did You put a jumper between any channels before powering on receiver?

Can I use CPPM also on:

- Frsky D8R v2
- Frsky D8r-II (not plus)

I cannot find the FRSky Update tool software anyware.

Almost there but not quite!!


I have everything I need and the program sees the receiver but it hangs at the 2% and never goes on. Has anyone found a solution to this? I have seen a few people experiencing the problem but I cannot find the solution.

This usually happens from drivers not enough polished for 64 bits machines.
I always use a real COM on an old XP machine for flashing stuff using serial line.
USB adapters and 64bit post XP OSes are simply not reliable enough.
