Quick links. It has a superb range of features and is well supported by the community. Well worth trying out. This is a complete overhaul of the documentation that not only reflects important improvements in the firmware, but provides much fuller explanations of the features and many detailed programming examples.

I am going to assume that if you have managed to load ER9x, then you must be familiar with eePe and basic ER9x programming. We are aiming to get pulse widths of , , , , , and Remember that will put APM into hardware manual because it uses the ch8 input, so you may as well assign manual mode to that position when you setup your chosen flight modes in CLI.
The pulse-width readout is now conveniently located on the Radio Calibration page of the Planner. I have used a servo programmer here as it is convenient for photos. Please don't just blindly copy my values as your radio may produce different pulse widths.
The Turnigy is not as accurate as my 12fg and the pulse values seem to vary slightly every time I cycle power. Clear any flight mode mixing you may already have, otherwise you will go round in circles chasing numbers due to the switch interaction. I wasted many hours by trying to jump straight into mixing. Setup these mixes on ch5. Put the flight mode switch in position 1.
Adjust the weight of the ID1 mix to get a pulse of This is the key to not chasing your tail later, it is also not the normal centre pulse width but is right in the middle of the range we are trying to setup. Add the mix shown here make sure it is! AIL and adjust the weight to get a pulse. Add the mix shown here make sure it is AIL and adjust the weight to get a pulse.
Adjust the ID0 weight to get an pulse. Adjust the ID2 weight to get an pulse. Join diydrones. Any ideas? Or do an Auto Tune This is really great stuff.
Thank you all. I'm curious about what some of you use channels 6, 7 and 8 for with the APM. I've read a little about using a pot on channel 6 for in flight tuning but I don't understand the details yet. Does anyone have any links that might help? I finally got the 6 flight modes setup on my er9x. I could not get the entry by CH 6 blank as shown. This is how I have my mode switch setup on my Open9x radio. Sign Up Sign In. Like 7.

Yours got me where I needed. David Pulvermacher November 9, at am. Thanks for that great clear piece of instruction. The other method of mapping the AIL switch to channel 9 completely confused the brain. Maybe because there's no GPS signal?.
