Your version runs correctly in the Sim, so that is another module in the library.
ThanksAlan

You will get an even faster turn if instead of just stopping the inner motor, you reverse the motor at full rudder.
Try changing CV1 to -75,55,100,55,75.

above reverses only one side.
-75,55,100,55,-75.

Trying to get my head around this.
X9E



Using TGY_CVT01 voltage sensors.


If  'read voltage' < 4.00V then radio speaks 'Port Stopped'.

Is the input voltage dropping below 4v ?   If so the unit automatically switches off and the Port will stop.

Voltage Range: 0~100V DCAccuracy: +/- 0.1V
Input Voltage: 4.0~6.5V

Not what I'm requiring.


5v for RX's and Servos is from a separate battery source.


Red leads from ESC's are disconnected.


ESC's have a single push button for on / off.


Flick switch on X9E to start ESC,  further flick switch to stop ESC.


By monitoring the red lead will show if ESC is on or off.


Hope that makes sense.

to see data screen hold <page>




options also to <play track>


Found sensors in my junk box, to read motor rpm and temperatures, using the Smart Bus

RPM, Current, lipo and gps sensors all working to the smart port.


sbus to pwm module works, but not using it at present.


Problem I've got is reading sensors into the sbus and showing on the x9e.


Been searching sbus & x9e but only get the sbus to pwm module.


Do I need to enable sbus inputs in a menu?

sensors do not go into the sbus, they can only go into the s(mart)-port

That's a shame, the I6x TX/RX setup uses the sbus for sensors.

Flysky != FrSky

but seriously, telemetry/sensors are the "wild west". all the different manufacturers use different telemetry protocols, some have more than one (FrSky D series is different from X/L/R series), and they all use different methods to get the data back to the receiver.  to the point where you will not be able to use a different manufacturer's sensors.   Castle Creations make Speed controls that work with Spektrum OR Futaba, but to do so, you need an adapter (unique to the brand of transmitter) that costs as much as the speed control.   One of the reasons i went with FrSky is because their sensor lineup is very large, and inexpensive.  it also doesn't hurt that their protocol has been reverse engineered, and one can create unique/new/different sensors using an arduino.

from what i have just read, the sensors for the 6 channel flysky receiver will not work with the 10 channel receiver !?!?!
