Does anybody know if you no longer need a teensy board? I still have an older version of 'plane' on my pixhawk. I had to get a new Taranis plus my old one broke. Just trying to set up the telenetry again. The new / used X9D radio had newer FW on it…

"And... I'm pretty sure in the Pixhawk params you need to tell it to use s-bus... but I could be wrong. Maybe somebody else could help you on that or look in the full params list for that option."

"The X8R s-bus is horizontal... that is to say the RC servo cable is using the 3 pins laying flat not upright."

"I have my pixhawk connected to my X8R directly from the X8R s bus to the 'RCIN' on the last set of pins on the Pixhawk. It's sort of confusing you do not connect it to the sbus on the pixhawk."

"I know this is an old thread.. I have been away from the hiobby for awhile. Does the X8R and original pixhawk no longer need the teensy if your running newer open TX?? Thanks"

"Also my pixjawk is in a Sig Senorita 3 channel plane. When I originally set it up I simply put the rudder on the aileron channel. It seemed to work. Should I do that differently now? I see some things in the params on that but not sure how to set…"

"Hi there everybody. I have been out of the loop so to speak for 2-3 years. I have the original pixhawk. It's running 3.7.1 ... should I update the FW?? Is there a limit to the versions I should not go beyond with my older Pixhawk? Thanks"

"I have a 4 RFD 900's [ the 1 watt version ]  from about 3-4 years ago. Would there be any advantage to me updating the FW say for better range?? "

What's the best method to connect a 3dr radio [ eBay version ] with a  df-13 socket to usb [ pc ] ?? I need to set up one in MP and cannot see how to connect to my pc. The last time I did this several years ago it had the pins for the FTDI cable but…
