PPM digital mixing (normal) |
CPPM same 'in serial string' = 1 cable
- actually, all is CPPM,
but in receiver, normal is to convert to PIN OUTs,
for your servo's, but when 'straight thru' of signal is desired, f.i. to my KK2 board, I dont need Pins on the RX, but use the output PINs on the KK2, so ~4 cables from RX to KK2 can be missed
just flashed my D8R-XP with this cable
FrSky download 20121010020017621.zip
which is the D8R-XP_CPPM_27ms download
for firmware flash package 27ms CPPM
contains a FrSky readme.pdf HOWTO
neither plugs can be used straight out of the package
the FrSky readme.pdf shows pic of 4pin plug
that LOOKS LIKE 4pin that comes with HK Cable
color scheme of FrSky cable and HK cable differs!
pin out (RX TX) might also be - allready? - switched!
I used 3 patch cables for the 3 x pin to pin
RX and TX should be crossed per the FrSky readme.pdf
NOT (in my case)
with crossed RX<>TX flash program frsky_update_rev11.exe
will NOT retrieve UID number from connected D8R-XP,
and no 'download' firmware flash possible
when RX and TX
crossed as per the FrSky readme.pdf picture flash went OK
anyway, so u'll know
It comes up in Windows 7-64 as a Silicon Labs CP210x USB to UART bridge. I downloaded the driver software from the Frsky website searching for D8R-II plus. Problem I have is that there is no place to connect the black 5 pin jack into the D8R-II plus, even though the cable's label clearly says it is for it! Help please?
This cable is perfect for D8R2-PLUS upgrade you just need servo cable and connect pins gnd (black) to gnd, tx (brown) to the receiver and rx rx tx receiver yellow to crossing the wires so that if there is transmission. and as I say it works, I've updated two D8R2PLUS, remember to connect the jumper between the ch 7 and 8 before and connect the cable to the digital port of the receiver. on the other hand you have win7-64bit I have found that gives problems with USB cable, better in a 32bit, in this work the first time:)
You the user* fuc1 for any receiver provided it is compatible, this one especially the good thing is you can usuarlo with more fuc1 devices with receivers that is specific for anything more. I recommend purchasing the fuc3 without hesitation
Is the black plug supposed to fit right into the DJT tx module? Mine won't fit, I could shave down the plug a bit and it would fit. I did take off the cover to the tx module and tried to plug it in but the pins are squared off and the black plug doesn't slide on at all! I bought this USB connector just invade I needed it but I can't figured out how this connects to the tx or rx. Can somebody clarify how to flash the djt module with this???
In the upgrade instructions (downloaded from FrSky site) for the D8R-II XP receiver, it says "Plug FrUSB-1 (FUC-1) or FrUSB-3 (FUC-3) to computer port", so what the FUC is this device then because can't read FUC anywhere on it?
I'm buying the Turnigy 9XR and will be using the FrSky DF 2.4Ghz Combo Pack for JR w/ Module & RX. Will I need this cable for anything? (I'm pretty new to this - will be using for a quadcopter build). Thanks.
On Mac OS X the USB cable is recognized by the system without install a device driver. The problem is that FrSKY only provide a GUI utility in windows. Underneath I suspect that the gui is calling avrdude or someother standard command line programming tool. If you can figure that out, you can probable install CrossPak (Avr utils package) and update the firmware. (When i need one of these to reprogram my FrSky i'll post instructions or I may even use my USBasp programmer. They are all standard anyway)
If you don't know how to solder, get the Smartieparts Board ($45, Google) otherwise follow the instructions on the er9x site how to solder the cable - It's fairly easy about 10min of work. You also need an AVP programmer.
This is the cable Fuc-1 "red green black" wich is now discontinued .. It has been replaced by Fuc-3 wich is a different colour cable yellow and red I think it is . You need the new cable for the new telementry setups.
Can I use the driver zip in Files for Windows 7 64bit Ultimate? Where must the black connector from USB cable be connected? In Receiver or in the transmitter Modul? I have FrSky Telemetry TX Modul installed in Turnigy 9Thx
You can connect this cable to the DIY module with no special link. The moduel has the connector on the left side, you have to remove the black pllastic cover to show the 4 wires or pins. The black cable of the usb should be connect to the upper pin (with the module in the up side position.)
Thanks Olisoft, Guess I was thrown off track by the "FrSky USB Cable compatible with FrSky Receivers" in the product description.
OK. now I'm somewhat confused. So what does the "Programming Cable" that comes with the Telemetry models do?
Same lack of information at the frsky site, im sure its to update firmware for recivers v1 to v2 if you dont have rs232 port on your computer.
I blame frsky for not suppling info most threads on net are advanced so you have to read hundreds of posts frustrating.
Please correct me if you know
Yes soon to be released is a hub to relay all sorts of data[ RPM,Fuel,GPS,Voltage,Altitude ect ] that will keep you interested for weeks of tinkering, looks good for the future,but for now still Chinglish instructions.
It can be used to set alarm levels for RSSI and A1/A2 sensors. It can also be used to update firmware in the RX/TX, but I haven't tested it yet. It uses a CP2102 ic, driver is included, however I had issues on Win7 machine (with 3rd party configuration program, but maybe the usb driver is the problem on Win7), on XP it's working great

I want to purchase this cable, interests me, what software is needed for his work? It is possible with his help to do updates for the module of FrSky DHT 8ch DIY Telemetry Compatible Transmitter Modul and receiver of FrSky D8R 2.4Ghz 8CH Receiver with Telemetery? And where to take software?
Works flawlesly on Win7 HomePremium. Drive is allso found in Ubuntu as a com drive . Have not tested it thou with any application under Linux.

Please be more specific about "works".
What programs does it work with? So far many on the Frsky forums have not been able to get this cable to work! Just BREAK ERRORS!
I'm fairness most are using XP I think so maybe W7 works better and I'll try it.
Knowing the programs and links to them that "work" would be a big help to us.
We use eepe, Frsky lite, and excellent 3rd party Frsky config program and this cable is no good for us. The free with DJT db9 Frsky or homemade cable with a USB to db9 rs232 adapter works 100pcnt with everything so far.
I and others have to rate this adapter/cable as a "don't buy/bother", use the db9 version with a USB adapter!
I'm sure it's a driver issue but HK or Frsky does not provide drivers that work with it we can find?
Anyone using this cable please post all the programs and OS you use and know works.
