I added the code to the X24 for handling up to 32 input channels. I tested it with my JETI DS-16 in 24 channel mode and it works great. I will be doing the normal complete battery of tests on every function over the weekend and I will release the updater program likely on Monday.

Magnetic switch info


We have released the magnetic switch for the X24.

Make sure you set the switch type to be BUTTON. This means that the magnetic switch acts like a push button - you place the magnet over the magnetic switch until the X24 turns ON (or OFF), and then remove the magnet.

The center of the switch body does not detect any magnetic energy. Only the ends do. See that attached picture for information.

Will that work for "standard" Rx? Or only X24s?

This is strictly for the X24.

I see a V 2.1 firmware update for X24 called out on firmware page, but the latest link is V1.9.
Can you post link to V2.1? Mine has V2.0 and I would like to update it.

Thank you!

That was added when I thought I had figured out a solution to the loss packet problem. I just forgot to remove the text from the downloads page.

Trying to program my elevator servos. When adjusting the EPA L and EPA H the center position of the servo changes. Also the AFR settings in the 18MZ have no effect on servo travel. If EPAs are left at 100, AFR works in the 18MZ. But not getting max throw even when set at 150%.

Thread OP
The maximum servo throw at 150% would be 900 to 2100 under the standard PPM convention. Go to the channel display screen and see if the values are reaching these extemes. If not, then it would be something to do with your transmitter. Typically you would just set your transmitter to use 100%/100% throws and use the X24 to provide the additional throws, but you can use a combination of both to the point where you can actually exceed the max limits (870 and 2250).

Just a quick update on the flight stabilization (for the PRO version)... the 10 DOF modules that I have been getting out of China are less than reliable. It seems that vibration greatly affects them. I built a prototype of a module and it seems to resolve nearly all of the oddities that I have been experiencing with high vibration (gas) setups. So, I am looking at getting my own module produced.
