Many Taranis ACCST users don't consider there is any problem, but a major effort by Aloft Hobbies has gone on and new rx firmware is becoming available that may be of interest to those still using ACCST. Here is what they say:

Universal ACCST Firmware for FrSky!

Aloft Hobbies has been working for months on this project and the first phase is now in the final testing phase.  We have developed a brand new firmware for FrSky ACCST receivers and would like to share this exciting news with you all.

What is Universal ACCST receiver firmware?

It is a BRAND new firmware that Aloft Hobbies has helped to develop for FrSky ACCST (D16) receivers. This is not made by FrSky, but they have approved the project.

If you have been using FrSky gear for a while you will be aware of the ACCST V1 bug and FrSky's fix with ACCST V2. While the bug was fixed with V2, it was not backwards compatible with V1. This forced users to update all of their transmitters and receivers to V2, or stay on V1 and risk the bug affecting their flying. For example, a V1 receiver cannot talk to a V2 transmitter.

This was causing a real mess as many people had challenges updating their firmwares (Aloft can do this for you) and FrSky started shipping out some products with V1 and others with V2. What a headache, we can do better!

The Solution

We needed to start with a brand new approach and this was going to require a excellent programmer and a team of testers and RF pros to challenge him. This is what we did, and the end results are looking amazing. Here are a few highlights of what has been achieved:

A single Firmware that can talk to V1 and V2 transmitters.

A single Firmware that can talk to FCC and EU-LBT transmitters.

No new firmware is needed on the transmitter, just the receiver.

The V1 bug has been significantly mitigated to, but if it does occur it only lasts a fraction of a second (18mS).

Added “Auto Tune” feature to lock into transmitter signal very accurately.

Added VFR (Valid Frame Rate) telemetry support.

Eliminated transmitter “swamping” when receiver and transmitter are very close to one another. (No more: “Telemetry lost, telemetry found” errors)

Eliminated the risk of entering failsafe when transmitter and receiver are very close.

Eliminated rare telemetry data errors (spikes) when RF quality is weak.

Added an option for inverted SBUS output.

Added a new Dual Bind feature. (Once you have bound one transmitter, you may bind to a second transmitter.)

and more.


This is still an ongoing project, and we are currently looking for a few pilots that could fly this new firmware and provide us feedback. Once we are done with all testing you will be able to purchase receivers from Aloft Hobbies with this firmware installed.

I found these ESC's and Motors in my inventory sitting for 12 years and can't even remember what plane will they fit. Can anybody help determine what size of plane can they be used? Maybe I can utilize then again. The big one is still in the box.

Hi can anyone help. 
I have this plane In the link below which requires the 11.1 4500 3S batteries.

Thing is I have none in this spec and about 10 batteries which are 11.1 2200 c25 3S battteries.

https://hobbyking.com/en_us/phantom-fpv-...gLPWfD_BwE


Can this plane be flown with my 11.1 2200 batteries or do I have to buy a 11.1v 3S 4500 battery?

I just bought a Radiomaster TS16S. I was able to use it for a while to setup but lately, I am not able to boot the radio. When I push the power button, the splash screen (Welcome screen) appears but it will stay there and does nothing. Pressing the power button again to turn it off does nothing as well. Which means the radio has hang up. I think it has entered an endless loop somewhere in its programs. To power it off, I have to remove the battery. Putting the battery back and repeatedly doing the same steps, sometimes the radio will boot in Emergency Mode. In this mode, the radio can be turned off with the power button. if you are lucky, sometimes the radio will boot properly which is very annoying.

I've been researching all over the place but recommendations I found does not convince me. Until I remembered, I replaced the SD card with a bigger capacity. I used a size that is recommended but have reused an old SD card I have. Just for curiosity, I copied the contents of this SD card to the original SD card that came with the radio and this had fix the issue. Which means TS16S has some issues reading my old SD card even if it can be properly read in a PC.

Should anybody experience the same, try changing the SD card before trying the recommendations found from Google. One of the recommendations is if you have replaced the splash picture, the size of the picture you have used is not the correct size causing the issue. Yes I have replaced the splash screen. I tried restoring it to the original picture, but this did not fix the issue. Another recommendation is one of the ribbon wires inside has some loose connection. I did not open my radio as it is very new, and I don't believe this is the root cause. This issue has been logged in OpenTx site. https://github.com/opentx/opentx/issues/8672

Aside from this incident, the radio is fantastic if you are techie techie person. If not, all you will get will be frustrations as this radio is very technical. You can configure it to do what you want but you have to tell the radio the task you want which might be very technical to some. Coordinating the Inputs to the mixes to the output was a challenge from the start but once you get the hang of it, everything makes sense. Programming the curves, rates and EXPO is a little bit different from other radios but the concepts are the same. And they have added Logical Switches, Special Functions and Global variables which is fantastic but again very technical cause they use logical terms like comparison if variable (Greater than, less than, equal to, EDGE, AND, XOR etc). Programming this in the radio is a bit tedious but doing it via the Companion App is easier.

I'm still very new to this radio but I'm happy to help answer any questions if I can. I think I have covered the basics plus a handful of the advance topics to configure the radio for a Helicopter. Plane is easier but the concepts are the same.

G'day All,

I'm aware some will be having difficulties accessing other parts of the forum, I am working on a solution.
