A little over a year ago I purchased an OrangeRx T-Six transmitter for some builds I was doing. Last week I finally got to the point where I was ready to use it.
Note that this is the last generationOrange RX Tx... its the one with the two position flap switch as opposed to the three position flap switch
OrangeRx T-SIX 2.4GHz DSM2 Comp. 6CH Programmable Transmitter w/10 Model Memory (Mode 2)
- I have this set up with Duailerons
OrangeRx R615 DSM2 Compatible 6Ch 2.4Ghz Receiver
TURNIGY Plush 40amp Speed Controller
Turnigy 2200mAh 3S 25C Lipo Pack
HURC 300 'Blue Wonder' 1600kv Brushless Motor
When I initially set this up everything seemed to work as expected, Ailerons, Elevator, Throttle, Flaps... all working as programed.
Then after about a day or so the Ailerons stopped responding or responded very slowly to stick inputs
Strangely though... flipping the Flaps switch deploys the Flaps instantly. (The flaps are the Ailerons both posiitioned down at 40%)
(I think this proves that the Aileron servos work... and probably also that the receiver aileron socket works.
To try to isolate the problem further I switched the Servo wires between the elevator and Aileron sockets on the receiver...The result was that anything that was plugged into the Aileron slot was non responsive... but when the aileron servo was plugged into the elevator socket it was responsive.
(Once again.. looks like the Aileron servos are fine).
I changed the receiver to a Spektrum receiver and got the same results.
I changed the Speed controller and got the same results.
So I'm thinking this has something to do with my transmitter. Is it possible that my transmitter is not able to see or communicate signals on the "Aileron channel".
I don't have access to another transmitter so I cant switch that out.
Any ideas?melchionda2015-01-19 08:02:53
