Re: DX8 advice for new to RC

Add module a and bench tested motors great add audio and works a treat. They are working as they should at this point. Add module b and I do get turret turn and barrel elevation however the track motors stop working, still have sound though. When I add recoil, the servo motor starts straight away an...

Re: DX8 advice for new to RC

Hi Andy, we are making progess. Switch over the Elevator and Aileron channels on the transmitter or swap the physical connections on the receiver. Mark Mark, when you have tried reinstalling things for as long as I have and with the wiring it’s great to have someone else look at it (so to speak). A...

Re: DX8 advice for new to RC

Sounds like you now just need to enable channel -mixing by selecting Wing-type Elevon. If moving the stick forward then causes the tracks to go in opposite directions, reverse one channel. If after that, both tracks go in the wrong dirction, reset the channel you reversed back to it´s original sett...

Re: DX8 advice for new to RC

That all sounds exactly as it should be. Can you put a servo on the receiver to check that the receiver outputs follow what you are seeing on the transmitter monitor ? I don't know if it's possible with the new motion pack but it sounds as though you have the motors split between the two outputs on...

Re: DX8 advice for new to RC

Adrian, nothing seems to be moving on the screen when I move the stick around. Are you sure you're in the Monitor screen ? It's one roll right on the thumbwheel on the DX6, should be the same on the DX8. Monitor.jpg The channel names may well be different to the image above, which came from the DX8...

Re: DX8 advice for new to RC

Going forward a stage, following the instructions will get you one stick steering on the right stick and turret traverse and gun elevation on the left stick. Perfect for a right handed person unless you actually crewed a Chieftain or Challenger when you used your right hand to operate the thumb con...

What does the monitor on the transmitter show you as you move the stick around ?

What do you have set under Aircraft Type in the System Setup menu ?

Adrian.
Adrian, nothing seems to be moving on the screen when I move the stick around.

Aircraft type is set at wing elevon and tail normal.

Re: DX8 advice for new to RC Help again lol

Famous last words there. I had managed to bench test the motors and programme the sound all was great. Install check all wiring is good and can only get the motors to go the same way if the stick is in the NE or SW position. Try adjusting, re programming and then they won’t work with the audio modul...
