Spektrum DX6e to DX20 Public Beta Released


I just enabled a Public Beta release of Spektrum Airware version 1.20 for all the "G2" radios - DX6e, DX6G2/G3, DX7G2, DX8G2, DX9, DX10t, DX18, DX18QQ, DX18t, DX18G2, and DX20.

Enjoy!

There is one known issue: If you enable the Telemetry Lost alarm (see the PDF) and have telemetry coming in from a model, if you disable RF and go into the System Mode the alarm will sound after several seconds. To avoid this, turn off the aircraft first and allow the alarm to sound before going into System Mode.

We are still going to be making some improvements on the Lap Timing system. There aren't any big bugs, but it's not as polished as we normally ship.

Don't need any of it.
I imagine there will be some happy people though, so good job!

Thanks. Once again, a number of the changes are due to comments posted here. So I thank YOU ALL for bringing things to my attention so I can get them in the database to be addressed.

Spread the word. There won't be an e-mail for this one because it's a beta.

Bug - Selecting Insert & Delete symbols when editing text


The Insert & Delete character symbols (<+> and <->) at the end of the special characters string cannot be selected when scrolling to the right as they disappear as they move to the cursor. They can however, be selected if you scroll to them (carefully) to the Left from the beginning of the Cap letters string. When Insert <+> is selected a paragraph symbol appears in the character position and when Delete is selected <-> a backwards "y" is displayed in the character position. Clicking on them accomplishes the desired action.

Stick-Switch not Usable for Flightmodes


Hello Andy,

I can't use the stick switch S for switching between flightmodes... any other switch works..

Hi Len,

Thanks for the info. I just finished up the entry editor changes and it's much nicer now, thanks to your and a number of others' suggestions.

I think you'll like the next pass!

You meant on Vario screen? Yes, you should see altitude and vario data on that screen.

@Andy, here's something I haven't seen before, my DX9 sometimes locks up on repeated binding attempts. Happened 2 times today, here's what I did:

1. Put rx in bind mode (SPM4649T)
2. Try bind, bind failed.
3. Try bind, bind failed. (time to get some distance)
4. Try bind, no voice, radio frozen, power cycle needed.

This is an old config slot, I'll try with a fresh model after work later today, it's just this never happened before.

Have you tried this with v1.20 yet? You are using version 1.05 which is ANCIENT! 2014-Feb-20!!

Switch S is already configured in this model (it is the left stick 3-position switch).

When I move S on my test radio, it shows Strecke A, Landung A, and Start A as the three options. I used version 1.14 and it worked fine.

The only thing I can think of is that you need to update to newer code.

Using DX18T


Hello Andy,

thanks for your advice.... I'm using a DX18T, and the version 1.05 was released in November 2016:

SPEKTRUM™ DX18T AIRWARE™ VERSION 1.05 (15 NOVEMBER 2016)

see the attached picture...

And yes, I tested with the 1.20 beta, now I'm back to 1.05 and and it works again..

Florian
