Re: Need help with controller configuration

Hi again, ThomasC. In the meantime, I decided to make some calibration attempts in order to show you how different my output is from the one you get. The first is the basic calibration without the 5 channel spec: http://i63.tinypic.com/11kw16u.jpg The second shows the output of the first, but I chec...

Re: Need help with controller configuration

Thank you for your input, ThomasC. But before going any further, I came across the following thread, in HELI-X in Linux: http://forum.heli-x.info/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1617. Since I am trying with exactly the same usb interface with which he failed, maybe it is not worth investing any more time. T...

Re: Need help with controller configuration

... I must admit, that in 5-channel mode I must assign throttle and pitch channels manually after calibration ... Not sure what you mean. 1. Where do you "assign" those channels? 2. Does that imply that one could have two calibration xml files, one in 5-channel mode and the other not, and...

Re: Need help with controller configuration

Thank you for your reply, ThomasC. This morning I double checked my radio and could not find anything in my calibration configuration to contradict your recomendations. When I launched HELI-X, and accessed Controller Configuration, everything was ok, including stick displays, stick movement. Then I ...

Re: Need help with controller configuration

After the post I wrote this morning, I set about implementing the suggestions in Simulator Setup: after I defined the heli in the radio, I decided to run an HELI-X simulation from the Align T6, so I went into Controller Config to check the 5-channel box and the two others below. I did not like the l...

Re: Need help with controller configuration

... Well, that means the operating system recognizes the USB interface ... Ok, the interface offers more than 4 channels, the configuration file coul be written. Everything ok ... Thsi sound good, however, there is no need to press the "save" button, the file is saved ... This look good.....

Re: Need help with controller configuration

Do I understand correctly that the interface is not recognized by HELI-X? Then please post the output of the terminal window. Michael I do not understand the extent of your question; I am not aware of any HELI-X command which will output on an Ubuntu terminal window. But, to be on the safe side and...

Re: Need help with controller configuration

what does "jscal" say? Does it detect your controller? Because of the version number I assume you use Ubuntu (I use 14.04 LTS, not primary for several reasons, but I love it ;) ) "jscal" says: Joystick has 5 axes and 3 buttons Correction for axis 0/1/2/3/4/5 is broken line, prec...

Need help with controller configuration

After I bought HELI-X and had actually managed to calibrate the sticks from the Align T6 radio (aka Futaba 6J), a hw crash forced me to reinstall my Linux 15.04. Now, HELI-X cannot detect the channels. The fact that the manual is very coy about explaining parameters and so forth - not to mention the...

Preconfigured models?

Is there any literature giving an overview of the product? For instance: are there any preconfigured models (for FP and/or CP) to enable a newbie to start quickly just by specifying Mode 2 (say) used in the Controller, and all other parameters specified or defaulted to in the model(s)? Or is Heli-X ...
