Can someone tell me which receivers are compatible with the flysky units? with links or pics if possible. I won a receiver unexpectedly and want to know if it will work with the unit I have coming. I think it's the GT2?. (the orange and black one) Many thanks in advance.
Hey guys, In a recent thread beefmuffin and I got sidetracked talking about the FlySky radio systems. Specifically the GT3B & GT3C. I mentioned hacking these systems, and a new thread was requested/needed. So here we are. I have to preface this thread by saying I have not yet hacked my GT3C but have the kit and will becoming so in the next few weeks. I am not associated with, getting any kickbacks from, or in anyway connected with FlySky or Overkill RC. I just wanted to share this with y'all. The hack seems pretty straight forward and most speak highly of their hacked systems. I love my stock GT3C though I know the one major fault is the power button ( located in the center of the steering wheel) which is prone to failure. It's an easy fix, simply installing a small toggle on the tx. The GT3B & GT3C share the same firmware so the hack is essentially the same, just a few minor differences to install the hack kit. Here is the information about the hack, quoted from the thread on rccrawler.com. http://www.rccrawler.com/forum/electronics/321742-gt3b-hack-question-answer-thread.html Losikid: Post your questions! I enjoy answering them. Any question concerning the gt3b, even if your just curious. ___________ Alright well a genius over on RCTech (psx) developed a new firmware. Now the Flysky GT3B can have 6 channels, 3 pos switches, 4ws mixing, and dual esc mixing. So i developed a kit which will include everything required to install this firmware and any future updates. This kit is can now be ordered here (at overkillrc.com). I'll be posting up some vids and such hopefully tomorrow of it in action, along with further details how its functionality. As you guys start hacking your GT3B feel free to post up questions if you get stuck. List of features, updated i belive this is all the new features the firmware offers in addition to the ones already there. - ~15 model memory depending how many channels your firmware is - Sub trims - More trim value (from 30 to 99) - copy models - fixed expo - Model reset - Steering speed - 4WS Mixing - Dual ESC Mixing - Dual ESC steering - Multi Positions Switches (Up to 8 True positions out of a single push button) - Key Mapping (any key can control any channel in many different ways) - Calibration Menu - Key Test Menu - Backlight on time - Inactivity Alarm - Adjustable Low volatge warning - Adjustable Maximum End Points (Up to 200% i think - Adjustable dead zone for steering and throttle - Turn keep beeps on/off - Adjustable long press delay The Trim and d/r keys can do this - nothing, it is possible to assign each button individually as key - trim of channel 1/2 - dualrate of steering/forward/back - expo of steering/forward/back - change channel "n" value in range -100...100 - subtrim of channel "n" - 4 wheel steering mix -100...100% - DIG throttle mix -100...100% - Multi-POsition, switches position up/down - steering speed turn 1...100% - steering speed return 1...100% They Can be setup to act like this - momentary, hold left/right trim key to get end values, when nothing pressed, servo is at centre - no long keys, long press is the same as short press - autorepeat is on - long press of one of trim keys will reset to centre/reset value - long press of trim key will set to coresponding end value And they can have an adjustable step rate, oppisite click reset, reversed, etc. And the Keys (ch 3 button, back button, end button, and the trims if set individually) - nothing - switch channel "n" value from one end value to opposite end value. - reset value of channel "n" to centre - switch crab (CRB) no-crab (NOC) for 4 wheel steering - switch DIG mix between -100 and 100 (more useable when using return to previous val key setting) - Multi-POsition, switches position up (at END back to 1.) - Multi-Position Reset, switches position to first one Firmware archive: http://www.overkillrc.com/GT3B/GT3B-Firmware/ (End quoted post) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This hack is very useful for crawling, as well as getting the most out of your flysky system. I'm really excited to hack my GT3C, and finish up my wraith. Choosing the FlySky allowed me enough models to have just one tx, and the 3 channel rx are really cheap, so most of my buggies will be modded with lights, yes I do drive then quite a bit at night. Here's the links y'all may want to read through.
