"Hi Luis, The goal is to use two 1W TX to make a long range bidirectionnal link. I've in the meanwhile also supported a 1W TX + 100mW RX configuration, but of course the range will be limited. For now a 2 x 100mW RX/TX is not supported, but if…"

"I have the same setup.  I will look at my configuration when I get home from work.  But I'm pretty I have the that sync time set for 4000 something.  I also have it set for limit PPM to 8 channels.  Works flawlessly."

"Hi Thierry, It's done ! just go to www.itluxembourg.lu/site and you'll find the details. You can use two 1W TX or one 1W TX and a 100mW 'RX'. A new configurator is available which takes care of uploading the firmware."

"With OpenLRSNG it channel5/port 6 for PPM.  I've exactly the same receiver as yours and it's work with 3.6.4 and 3.7.1 from Kha and google configurator but you have to choose in Rx side of google configurator to output PPM on channel…"

"Hey Oliver I struggled with this for awhile too. your wiring looks correct but as someone mentioned the minimum sync time could be a factor. My setup is as follows. OpenRX/TX 433mhz flashed through openlrsng google configurator. I had firmware…"

"Thanks for the reply ben, It would be really cool if you could make the firmware for the normal receiver, But if it's too much of an hassle than forget it, I just wanted to see if it was possible, it would clean up my copter. But oh well,…"

Timo Witte replied to Oliver Whysall's discussion APM PPM from openlrsng
"Could be due to the OpenLRS generating a falling edge for PPM instead of a rising (pause is high and pulses are low).  The other problem could be the OpenLRS Telemetry generating to much noise on the output pin.. I have exactly the same…"

"If you have anything other than 8-channels in your Tx settings, try setting 'Limit PPM Output to 8 channels' in Rx settings to yes. APM doesn't like PPM streams with +8 channels."
