Question

Futaba T6J PPM out ??


Hi all,

I am building an ultra micro plane and would like to use Hobbykings supermicro system. I have a Futaba T6J radio and would like to connect the module to it. Does the 6J have a PPM out in the trainer port. Can't be able to figure out if it is PPM, PCM or something else. HK's site states that the module works with PPM signal.

I am thankful for any help here, the indoor season is here now!

Regards,
Tommy

Yes the Futaba T6J output ppm on the trainer port(details here):

With the Futaba trainer socket you also get V+/Ground to power your SuperMicro module which can be Velcroed behind the Tx. There is a long thread in the Mircro/indoor forum about the HK SuperMicro system:

Thank you for your answer! Supermicro module and receiver etc. now ordered. Hopefully this will work. Have been looking all around for some info about "compability" with the T6J, but nowhere to be found. Might post my results in the supermicro thread you linked to for others to know.

All you need is to locate the appropriate pins on the module(Futaba or JR type)to connect the ppm out,V+ and ground from your trainer socket. The on line manual for the SuperMicro module is available when you click on "Files" on the HK's site:

Here is a drawing for Futaba style module pins(JR is different)

The ezuhf is delivered with a futaba square connecting cable. I'm no expert, just have one on my wish list, but it seems to be almost plug and play...
Probably they all work the same way, I guess.
Still waiting for my HK package, took two weeks just the get the tracking number activated , but now it seems to be on its way

Module wants to go mode1


Did finally get the parts last week and have now connected the module to the trainer port according to the scheme above. No problems there, just straight forward connecting pins.
Did the binding operation with success, but now I have rudder/aileron and elevator on my left stick. And I used to have a mode2 radio!!!
Probably throttle is on the elevator stick also, didn't connect the motor so I cant be shore.
This really bothers me, hopefully I didn't buy all this stuff for nothing

Figured out the mode problem, by changing mode in the tx menu I got the rudder and elevator changed to the right stick. Now I still have to figure out how to get aileron and throttle to change places...

This might have something to do with SW-1,SW-4&SW-5 position during binding(see the pdf manual under: Files on the HK's site). They have to be set differently for Futaba/Hitec and JR/Spektrum to arrange a channel order compatible with the "Brick" Rx you use:
