Dearest RC colleagues
I have completed my first DIY drone! Perhaps too large a machine as a first build but hey... it flies well!
Flight controller is an APM 2.6 and I have an OrangeRx OpenLRS Tx (1 watt) and Rx pair. OpenLRSng firmware flashed onto both.
I have configured the Rx to output PPM on Channel 5 and the machine works perectly like this.
Now seeing as PPM output is being used I have a number of channels on the Rx free. I would like to have some other devices attached to these channels (not running via the APM) - A servo or two, a camera trigger, camera swithc, a loud beeper for downed vehicle tracking etc...
I find however that with PPM output selected I get no response from a servo plugged into any of the other pins despite assigning channels to these pins.
I have chosen the setting which limits PPM output to 8 channels - otherwise the APM does not listen to the Rx.
Essentially I would like to know how to map my channels 9, 10, 11, 12 to the open pins on the Rx...
On the Tx side I have the module in a Turnigy 9XR with stock firmware. Same problem with the ER9X firmware.
Please advise - Is there a problem with my (9XR not sending anything on these channels or is it my OpenLRSng config?
A screenshot of the correct OpenLRSng config in Chrome Configurator whould be most appreciated (assuming you have both PPM and PCM running simultaneously)
Thanks in advance.
