v9C models under v8 install

I downloaded 9C the other day and was pleased to see a couple new plane models. Purely out of curiosity, I copied two of them (Alphajet and Extra330SC) to the appropriate directory in my Version 8 installation. I didn't really expect them to work, but they almost do. The Alphajet works except you ca...

Autogyro model?

Re: v7 dead band problem [Linux]

[I know this thread is old, but I spent a couple hours figuring this out the other day, so I thought I'd document it for posterity.] [This is all for Linux only] The simplest thing to do is to just eliminate all flat spots, deadband, gain and offset being applied by the old joystick API layer (which...

No audio track in exported movies

I'm trying to export a movie of a recording in heli-x v8, and the resulting .mp4 file never has any audio. I've tried various video players/utilities and all of them agree that the .mp4 file simply has no audio track: $ ffmpeg -i movie_001.mp4 -hide_banner Input #0, mov,mp4,m4a,3gp,3g2,mj2, from 'mo...

Re: Serially attached RC transmitter?

There's a user-space version of the driver that uses the uinput API at

It's simpler to build/use than the kernel module.

Dead links on controller page

FYI,
Almost all of the links on the "Controller" page are broken.

IIRC, only the two Amazon links work.
