These following were the steps I did to set up the FrSky TFR8 RX to initiate the fail safe on APM and in case this can help others . I suggest add yours here as well if you have a different TX/RX FS setup.

I cant figure out why the sonars on both my copters don't seem to give a proper readings when I run sonar test on CLI. Ive done a full reset and installed the firmware a few times on both. Im running 2.5.3 on APM1 .
Some how what I think is a diode on the right side from the power jumper ( bottom left on the board just below the multiplexor) is missing. It must have gotten knocked of somehow. Can you please advise what the specs are of this component and what I
I had a major crash on my GCS laptop and for what every reason I can no longer install Win7. Ive now managed to get Win XP and Ubuntu installed and have installed Net framework 4 and done the XP 3 service pack etc and all updated.
I have had a problem with Mission Planner for a while now that the main window doesn't open up but it opens in minimize to the tool bar. The terminal window opens ok, but not the main window. Even if I click on it, it wont open . I have to hold the c
