OK, I just checked both of mine. When I turn off the Tx of the V761-1, the motor shuts off. If I do the same with the Super Cub 500, it goes full throttle. It doesn't matter what stick input it had. That would be a sure flyaway.

Speaking of flyaway, time your flights with the Super Cub 500. When the battery drops to a certain level, the rudder and elevator lock to neutral, and the motor pulses. It then flies straight and level until it hits something. In fact, it might actually climb slightly. Stick inputs do nothing.

One more thing, the transmitters are not interchangeable between the two planes. I tried to bind them to the other planes, but no luck.

Thanks Rick. Looks like some variability there. My 761-1 came off Ebay.com.au from the cheapest price at the time so who knows what seconds bin it inhabited? Still a ton of fun and so small that long range flying is not an option.

With my ancient Trainstar mini If I switch off the Tx the motor stops but the stabilisation keeps working and control inputs do nothing. It did that yesterday morning when I was flying.
Into the very gentle breeze naturally. It made a gentle landing with no assistance from me. Embarrassingly it made a better landing than I usually do

I guess there is some variation

I love the bounceability of EPP especially as a training craft but the videos show a mode 2 model does anybody know if it comes in mode 1....throttle and rudder on RHS and elevator on LHS . Also does the throttle have a ratchet on the stick ?
Neither Banggood nor Volantex answer questions on this subject.
Thanks in advance Quacky

I've not seen a mode 1 version nor one with a ratchet throttle.
As with most 3 ch planes now the rudder and elevator controls are on the right stick (mode 2)

Does anyone here fly the V761 with a module( Irangx/Jumper/Etc) with the multi protocol firmware on it?

I know its possible , ( I have one and fly with a Taranis and IrangeX module) but I am looking for others who could help us out finding more info to fully implement the control. We specifically need more TX ID's.

We would need anyone who has a multi protocol module and can update it to the latest firmware (and has the original Tx)

BTW fling this on a quality TX is a lot of fun. ( but gyros stay at Midd) still goes crazy with gyro off no matter the TX

I have seen one flown on an old Jumper (the black one) but it had no switching of the stabilising modes. I have no idea which protocol was used though
Many on here will not have experience of the deviation process or even of protocols (it's a toy grade plane after all) so a fuller explanation of what you want and why might elicit more replies and interest.
Just a thought

I've been following the thread on the Deviationtx forum

I have stopped posting on the Deviationtx forum since my jumper grew legs and got appropriated.
So its now the Multi code only.

In short :
Pascal (multi) and Deviationtx make use of specific code (and some reverse engineering) to allow for the control of many models with built in RX's to be controlled by a high quality TX.
Many of these toy models come with rather crap Tx's and can be greatly improved by just changing to a decent radio.
Additionally it allows for a OpenTx or Deviation based transmitters to be compatible with a range of Rx's
I fly all my UMX Spektrum ( DSM2 & DSMX) planes with a Taranis

What we need
To extract the ID that the Transmitter sends
There is currently 3 TX ids available, these are hard coded
If we have more it might be possible to create code that would allow any1 to bind to their V761 . (Not just these 3 ID's)

Tools required
A multi protocol module ( Irange x/ Orange etc) that they can update firmware on (PC with Arduino IDE and a programmer)
And they need to have original TX for V761

Pascal wrote a way for the module to listen and report back

Hope it makes sense

Does to me.
Unfortunately I have only the original Tx so can't help yet.
There will be some on here with both

In case anyone is looking for more info on the above discussion of using a 3rd party Tx with the V761-1 or other V761-X planes...

The DIY Multiprotocol firmware has had an implementation of the V761 protocol since Multiprotocol v1.2.1.59 (June 8 2019)

What does this mean? It's quite involved, but if you toddle over to https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...0multiprotocol there are some very helpful folk who might be able to help in getting a multiprotocol module flashed with some firmware that will support the V761 protocol. I have a Jumper T16 with a JP 4in1 module, successfully flashed and bench tests look good so far with the Volantex Mini Trainstar 761-1. Now just need some good weather to try it for real...

OK. Got the new V761-4 Sport Cub 4-channel and was able to fly it and our V761-1s today. Very pleasantly surprised - in quite windy and variable conditions the Sport Cub flew very well. I was initially a bit worried about the foam it's made of. It didn't quite look and feel like some of our other EPP planes but, though fairly thin & light, it seems to be quite flexible & strong. The landing wheels also functioned well on our rough gravel & weed "lawn." In common with all the V761 versions there is no motor fail-safe in the event of lost signal but the Tx range is more than ever needed.
We've lately discovered that (even though it's not mentioned in all but the most recent manuals) all our V761-1s have the faux RTH feature as does the Sport Cub. And all the Txs are interchangeable - a bit like the Syma X5 & X8 version quads. You just lose some unsupported features on the various combos. It appears that all the current versions of the V761 use the same receiver board.

That's interesting. I have been unable to bind my Trainstar to the Supercub 500 transmitter, nor bind the Supercub 500 to the Trainstar transmitter. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? I'm hoping the Eachine Mini Mustang transmitter will bind with the Supercub 500.

The V761-1 mini trainstar has been around for quite a few years Rick. Unannounced board changes are not unknown. If your Supercub has the RTH feature I'd bet it will bind to the mini Mustang Tx & vice versa.

Oh and the V767-2 Tx doesn't want to know any of these.

And 1 more thought. If there are different versions of the 761-1 board maybe the recently hacked protocol addition to the multi module radios will be a bust for these.
