Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Half stick / full throw servo

 Should the tx module and rx be compatible? When i bind them all i get is half stick servo movment on all channels. Ive searched and read to set limits but mine dont change anything. Not forgetting to mention the rx binding is very tempermental. The rx states that servo syncing isnt supported with modules. What do i do now?  Thankyou in advance for your time.

Not heard of that before. Are you sure the rates aren';t set wrong on the tx?

I dont have any rates, limits, or expo. I even created a new model and tried the different ppm settings. Ive never heard of Redcon and wondering if its just a cheap knockoff or something. I ordered an 8 ch orange now. Wanted a 9ch but they are on back order. This will be my 4th rx lol the spectrum works nice but its 7 ch and not enough to add my light switch and cam gimbal servos.

Lol thats a great question!  But yes that was first thing i did!  But i had to re-bind a few times because sometimes i didnt get bind lights on both the reciever or the satellite. Sometimes one or the other would go solid light to show bind but not both. Then sometimes i do get both to show solid. So with that goofy stuff im kinda thinkin its a faulty reciever or maybe just not compatible :/

OK, someone went and said calibration.

I had a problem some time back with an old Turnigy TX. I bought some shiny new and super el cheapo servos from PRC and I had a funny problem. Full stick got only 1/2 the servo throw.
At the same time old servos I had sitting around still gave the full quid.

As you might expect, the prob turned out the servos wanted one range of pulse widths
for 0-180; the TX sent a different range of pulse widths.

At some point I got to thinking about re-calibrating the sticks. I looked at several methods on the net that claimed to work. The manual with the TX was completely useless -- a pdf created by pasting photos of photocopied pages together; can not even search it and the text is pretty useless anyway. The emphasis is on how to use the buttons to navigate the menus, but it doesn';t bother to explain why you want to get into certain menus or what those functions are supposed to be doing.

Anyway. Finally bit the bullet and did a calibration. Right stick fine; left stick ended up
with top-left == bottom-right == non-functioning. Tried a few times, if anything the results got worse and worse.

Some time (much) later, I read somewhere incidentally how to reset the calibration on the Turnigy in case you scewed it up. That worked.

I also managed to snaffle one of those board to allow you to burn new firmware. But I haven';t bitten that bullet.

(Getting the board was also a procedure. After 6 wks it hadn';t turned up from Canada. I talked with the guy and we finally sorted out it was sent to an old address. Somehow
Paypal told him the old address I had, even tho it had been deleted from everthing I could see on the actual Paypal account; the Paypal people were vague about how it can be something is sent to an address that is not presently your actual address; they said there were "other sources" for the mailing address other than from your Papal account.
Finally the package ended up back in Canada. The guy said it looked like it had been shot with a shotgun and there was a definite smell of burning about the board. Not sure where it had been or how it got re-addressed back to Canada. My old addr at the time had been turned into a vacant block. But, anyway, he sent a 2nd copy of the board and the insurance EVENTUALLY covered the loss. They didn';t want to pay because it had not been delivered to the right address. I thought that';s the kind of thing the insurance was supposed to cover; silly me).

was lucky with my smartie board took 5 days from Canada to NZ plugged it all in and works great

So resetting tye tx worked?  Im using a 9xr. How did ya do that? I tryed a new model and that didnt help either. I ordered another rx :/

I got my Orange 8ch Rx and i had no problems binding and sevos actuating a full throught in relations to the Tx.  Alls good now, so far. :)
