Reply with quote

Hi All. I am new to this hobby and site so hello from topher65.
I have a problem with gyro's, can anyone help please?
On my Esky Belt cp the headlock gyro's ( I have 3) will only work on 2.4G and not on 35mhz. the standard Esky gyro works normally. I am using a Hitec Eclipse 7 Tx which works all the other servos ok. The 2.4G Tx and Rx is Esky's own make.
Well that's todays problem and any help would be much appreciated. Chris

Surely if you are using a 35 mhz transmitter then you will need to have a matching receiver in the heli. And the same for 2.4g. The gyro is not dependant on the system used to control the heli. I had a twister gold that ran on 35 mhz and when i converted it to 2.4g it still had the same gyro on board i just put a spectrum 2.4g rx in place of the old 35 mhz one.

Thanks for the reply. I guess I didn't make it clear that I have used 35mhz Tx and Rx together and 2.4G together, not mixed up.It doesn't make any sense to me either as the gyro signal should be the same from either system I assume

Could there be different ways of setting gain in your 2 transmitters. I was using a dx6i and on that tx 0 to 50 % is rate mode, and 50 % to 100 is HH. Now i am using a dx8 and rate mode is -100 to 0, and HH is 0 to +100. So the settings in each tx are not the same. Your transmitters might do the same.

I had wondered if it could be something to do with the Tx rate modes. I have been studying the manual and have tried altering one setting and after your experience I will experiment more!!. I'm sure that there is a logical explanation in the anual somewhere. The trouble is that as age creeps on technology seems more dificult to understand. I will let you know what happens. Thanks for taking the time to reply. Kind regards Chris

Hi. Yes you were right, the problem was with the Tx setup. had to go into a diferent program but not one that I would have expected. It was a case of keep trying everything until I found the right one. Kind regards Chris
