Hello everyone. It is good to be back. I have been out of the hobby for 2 years now and I'm just now trying to get back into it.
I thought the best way to get back into it would be to practice on some reflex. I have a JR8103 TX that is in perfect condition. For some reason I can't get it to calibrate correctly. It keeps saying that the channels are not centered, all of them. I don't understand. It is in PPM mode and everything. So I grabbed my dad's JR10x and it worked perfectly fine. That's wierd. I'm headed down to school soon, and I'd like to use my own TX. Any suggestion? I've already exhausted the reflex helps.

Thanks,
Brian

Click on Radio -> Channel Display and see which ones are not centered. Look in your Tx to see how the not-centered channels are assigned. If one is a 3 position switch, center that switch. If one is a 2 way switch, temporarily change an end point to 50%. I can't recall for sure, but I don't think is is absolutely required to pass the centering test in order to proceed with channel assignment.

I'm not worried about the switches being centered. My problem is the sticks. When I do a channel display it shows movement when I use the sticks, but their is not equal movement to each direction. It is so bad that I can't even get the chopper off the ground.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Brian

I have Futaba rather than JR so no first hand experience, but I am aware that there is a mod that needs to be done for some JR radios.

My interface already had this done before purchase so it may be a false lead, but worth checking all the same.

See here for details

Other than that make sure you don't have a rates or ATVs (endpoints) set on your radio when calibrating.

Cheers,

Nigel

that is the same problem I had. Do you have the Blue interface ? I sent the blue one back and MRC sent the red one and it works fine. I also have a JR 8103, MRC says it is the blue interface with windows XP that is the problem. Give them a call.

If tey'll swap it out for the red interface I would definitely do that as you will be getting the new SlimStick (the red one) without any upgrade fee.

Cheers,

Nigel

I really appreciate y'alls help. I guess I'll be heading to radio shack for a resister for the quick fix. If the problem persists, I'll go the long route by contacting reflex and getting another one.

Thanks,
