Heck, how about an S-bus only receiver? FrSky Taranis - 16 Channels, Full Telemetry, RSSI - Page 141 (3) (Now I'm just being silly.)

Isn't X4R close to what you want?

Hi, would it be possible to simulate telemetry with the companion9x simulator. I mean a simulator with hardware in the loop. I'd like to test my sensor board with the Taranis. I could plug it to the fdd serial to USB bridge.

Thx

The doc is currently "draft" - it was made a month ago, and it wasn't clear what would make it in the initial release or not. If some things don't, it will be mentioned.

As said each module can be turned on and off as required in the settings.

Possible already, just not implemented in the current c9x release.

Again, not available in the current c9x release yet.

Someone already pointed you to the module that should do it for control. BUT the number of channels will still be limited by what the Hitec system can handle, so you probably won't get any more unless you simultaneously transmit to a second receiver in the model, which would be an FrSky receiver controlled by the Taranis' internal module. Hitec telemetry data wouldn't be supported.

2. But my bigger question is a function that I've not noticed before. "Play Both" custom function.

Again, c9x not ready. The dropdown isn't radio-specific in the current c9x release, so you see all custom functions available on any board. Play Both is actually only for stock board with voice module hack.

Not so much. I know others have done what I did when moving to FrSky. I sold all my Futaba gear for a very fair price and had more than enough income to fund the FrSky gear plus some extra.

My understanding is that Futaba modules can work if using an adapter board. However, the one linked to earlier in this thread, has to be modified as it includes a signal inverter that relies on the +6V pin that is missing in this Tx. The signal inverter is however not needed as the Tx can handle both signal versions, so it can be bypassed. Then the locking tabs will not work, so it needs to be secured in another way. So they doesn't fit, but may be used with some effort.FrSky Taranis - 16 Channels, Full Telemetry, RSSI - Page 141 (14)

I hope the rest of the FrSky line have better quality than the FLVS-01. I ordered three from Hobbyking. One was OK, one showed 1S only and the last 2S. Today, I received replacements from Hobbyking. One was OK, the second one showed 6S, but cell 6 was way off, 0.56V instead of 3.85V! Did all the bad ones go to Hobbyking? Seems they have discontinued them, as I can't find them there any more.
At least I finally got two working ones for chaining.

And specs are wrong, unless I have mixed the terms, "voltage display resolution: 0.01V". Mine operates in steps of .03V or .04V.

Actually, I like it - nicely done. Your videos are really helpful and useful. Hmmmm. A full set somewhere, like through a link of the OpenRC forum?

Thanks for your work on them, Scott. I know they take a lot more time and effort than most people imagine.

Cheers,

Scott indulge in 'branding' your videos anyway you like...just keep them coming.

This one is especially helpful to me as it gives me a starting example of setting up telemetry. I've about got voice conquered on erSky9x but handy done the FrSky bit. Now the Taranis will catapult from the 1600's to the 22nd century.

Thanks again.

No. Sbus is Sbus, PPM is PPM FrSky Taranis - 16 Channels, Full Telemetry, RSSI - Page 141 (27)

Right about which is which, but the decoder is more universal than S-Bus, it decodes CPPM as well FrSky Taranis - 16 Channels, Full Telemetry, RSSI - Page 141 (28)

You can use any servo you like if using a decoder. Otherwise you will want an s-bus servo like the new ones from FrSky. They are expected to cost about $20 each and will be full metal gears, digital, alloy cases. Very nice servos. We will have more details on them soon.
