Made a post earlier looking for parts, is this still for sale?
I shall help you fine sir, what is the step you are at now?! Have you set a switch to disarm and arm yet?!Have you set the proper tilt for the tail motor yet?! Are the stick ends set to 1000 min and 2000 max in the Reciever TAB
Please make sure the props are off don’t want to be making you ugly lol
I am logged into my phone to respond quickly as well
You must use Betaflight for the new triflight firmware.
Yes desolder does help out a lot, i’ve had success lifting one end with a tiny flat head then using tweezers to pull of the other end, if you go back to the pics where you got that one from in the I2C location theres 3.3v I would measure to be sure I don’t see why that couldn’t be used!
Just in case nobody knows the new SPM4649T will give you signal strength if you have a GEN2 Specktrum Transmitter I thought it was awesome they finally have it, if you go to telemetry screen and go to Flight Log you can adjust the alarm setting there!! Happy flying everyone!!
Instead of the turnigy evolution, take a look at the taranis QX7 priced at a lovely $100 with a fantastic range of receivers to choose from greatly priced, you’d have simple signal strength and telemetry for battery monitoring that can voice alert you if troubles arise. The OpenTX is simple to use once you play with it and there’s tons of youtube videos to guide thru setups, it would be a great future proof transmitter. I have the DX9 and Turnigy XR PRO with the Frsky module and I get RSSI with it and if the XR Pro breaks I am 100% getting a Taranis QX7 myself as I don’t need the extra switches on the $200 Taranis XD9. Compare the two yourself and let me know any questions you might have.
Correct you’ll need to move it to the other pads, if you don’t have a second solder and have someone lift it off with small tweezers you can use a small flat head an gently lift one side off then just use tweezers to remove the rest or a desoldering braid if you have one. If you don’t have a temp control solder just be quick about it, let it cool down if it gives you trouble instead of heating it over and over getting frustrated( Iv’e done it).
No problem man
I guess the file size was to big for the pin out,just look at picture 16 on the RC Explorer website in the F3FC shopping section.
Sorry got a little busy this weekend, iv’e turned on email alerts so I can respond faster!!
@rickersred After looking into the SPM4649T for you I found some small print that signal strength/flight log works on the Gen2 transmitters and your DX7 is Gen1, if you plan on upgrading in the future you could get this reciever still and have voltage telemetry now. It’s a shame I feel like there forcing people to upgrade there transmitters.
@owenrocksit Hello I’d recommend Spektrum Quad Race Serial Receiver w/Diversity $25 it has the longer antennas and an autobind nice and small and compact, Lemon Rx has a small simple receiver as well,Lemon Rx DSMX Compatible PPM 8-Channel diversity antenna receiver $32. Also since you have an older Gen1 transmitter there’d be no need for the SPM4649T. Also is it the baby or mini you wanted i’ll include the pic on the F3FC board there is 3.3v spot just look at the pic below.
Any more questions just let me know I enjoy giving back!!
Your very welcome for the reply, yes things keep changing fast since I first bought my V3.5 which I love and have had many crashes and learning. Well since I have been on specktrum wagon for years (also have Turnigy 9XR PRO with Frsky). Ok so first we have many receivers to chose from you can decided based YOUR budget and WANTS.
So let’s begin, we have Lemon RX, Orange RX, then finally Specktrum’s on brand receivers. Lemon RX and Orange RX are DSM2/DSMX compatible receivers which offer PPM/SBUS work great for our Transmitters, there reasonably priced and have a good selection and of course Specktrum receivers are very pricey. Also we can use the spektrum/orangerx/lemonrx satellite to bind to the F3FC board and other boards as well there small,cheap,and a simple 3 wire connection! Now the receiver mentioned above the off brand one will work, but i’m not flying my $300+ Tri and relying on that, parts cost a lot again for you to decide on your budget. Now the FIRST receiver i mentioned in my first response is the ONLY one that will give you signal strength and battery voltage to your transmitter and can alert you on your controller if the battery is low or getting out of range, no other receiver WILL give you signal strength and thats for YOU to decide based on how you fly and areas you’ll fly at and how far you’d like to go. Generally all the lemon and orange are around 20$ for there receivers and the really good one with signal strength is $50 again YOUR budget. Iv’e included pics of different recievers, let me know if you need help deciding on which one exactlly you want. The cheapest one?The Smallest and lightest and simple connection? Voltage monitering to transmitter? and of course the best one voltage/signal strength to transmitter? Hope this helps, i’m not the best typing grammar person always worked with my hands sorry for grammatical errors
The AR610 wont work it doesn’t offer PPM/SBUS which is all V4 accepts I believe lol
Specktrum has a great newish receiver that’s small and thin good for quads, it offers telemetry voltage/signal strength, yes I know right finally have signal strength!!!! Which transmitter are you using? These all work great on my DX9! Hope this helps!!
Here’s a video for baseline setting for V3.5, I forgot I had this. Finally getting it back together this weekend!!
I can post those for you when I get off work about 8hrs from now if you still need them?13 July, 2016 at 00:03 in reply to: Tri-copter Drifts to right in angle and/or Horizon. #30937
