Another question, I don't know where to plug CSN on the AVRasp ? VCC or GND ?

square pin is always pin1, it is not always ground.

Do not hook up CSN on the programmer, it is not needed for programming

This doesn't seem to be possible in the Wiki, but I bolded it

Ok flashing Ok...

Remark :
Need to use the pin 1: 3.3V even with a USBasp working @5V

Just for the record (and this may be a stupid question):

If I do NOT install the universal module, and load the latest SW (nightly), I do not need to change anything, my TX will just perform normally and there are no settings (hardware.ini) I need to think of, right?

if you have no modules installed, install the hardware.ini that comes with the firmware.
if you have modules installed (but not the universal module) you need to properly configure hardware.ini

pb

what are the chances of me getting a replacment for the stock cyrf in my devo 7e or even a uni mod to put in it i had a misshap with the range mod or even point me in the right direction for a tut on makin a uni mod with something that will get me back devo dsm

you might be able to find an original Walkera module here:
www.ehirobo.com/walkera-wk-devo-s-mod-de...-upgrade-module.html
You likely need to find a 5V source (switched) on the Devo7e to use this module at full-power. I'm sure it is there, but I'm not sure where it is.

I have shown that the 'BuyChina' module will bind with Devo/DSM, but have not range-tested it.
www.buychina.com/items/2-4g-module-cyrf6...m-module-uuruunslkhi
You should not need a MultiMod to use this module.

Or you can order an AWA24S and a MultiMod (the AWA24S cannot be used without the multi-mod) from here (again not range-tested, but it does work):

Ok, I finished the multi-module. I am planning to connect it on my fresh Devo10. My multi-module have only 3 RF chips (Don't have the CYRF).Two questions :


1) P1 pinout to Devo10

P1 (view from top)

7 5 3 1
8 6 4 2
with 7 = GND, 5 = MISO, 3 = Reset, 1 = +5V
8 = CSN, 6 = SCK, 4 = MOSI, 2 = +3.3V

For the devo 10, I need VDD, GND, TMS, TCK, SCK, MOSI, MISO and optionnally NRESET (If I want to relash Hex file with my devo).

So

P1 ====> DEVO 10
2:+3.3V | VDD
3:Reset | NRESETTCK
4:MOSI | MOSI
5:MISO | MISO
6:SCK | SCK
7:GND | GND
8:CSN | TMS ? TCK ?TMS

2) For Hardware.ini

just adding "enable-multimod = A13" ?


EDIT : just found the information
"If the 'Universal Module' is being installed, 'CSN' should connect to the 'TMS' pin, and 'RESET' should connect to the 'TCK' pin"


EDIT 2 : "The Reset pin only needs to be connected if you plan to program the AVR via your transmitter. In this case, connect the 'Reset' pin to the 'TCK' pin of the Devo transmitter" should be also be written in the DevoModule8Install page

Hi All

I have been absent from the site for a while and noticed a lot of progress on the Multimodule. Although I have all three modules installed with a small toggle switch in the battery compartment to toggle between the CC2500 and nrf24L01 modules, the better way would be to replace these with Multimodule

My Question - I noticed there is talk about a V1.3 and V1.4 module, but only the V1.3 can be ordered from oshpark.com/shared_projects/Df3iWl1J .

Do I need to and where do I get the V1.4 PCB, or is the V1.3 still the "better" PCB to get?

regards
RM

I haven't fully vetted the v1.4 board which is why it isn't available now. The only functional difference is the support for the 'BuyChina' CYRF6936 module (probably irrelevant for all Devo Transmitters)

The v1.3 is the recommended board.

Note that your current setup won't actually work with nightly builds because we check for the presence of modules on startup, and one of your modules will always fail to detect.

Thanks for this info, I wasn't looking forward to disassembling my Devo10 and removing the nrf24L01 module. This way I just ordered all the modules I wanted in one shot and will populate the multi-module board before swapping it out with my current setup. Besides I need more time to get ready since I am building a FPV quad and ground station at the same time.

Ok First try to switch on with the multimodule ... I was very optimistic, because it was the first time I switch on also my new devo 10.
I had "Missing CYRF6936" error msg.


In the hardware.ini, I just uncomment "enable-multimod = A13". I have 3 RFchips installed on my multi-modul, the A7105-500, the nRF24L01+ and the CC2500. I am wrong with my hardware.ini ?. I guess there is a soldering problem somwhere.... Luckily, I can remove it more or less easily.

I feeling there is a problem with my multi-module, coz my devo10 don't boot completly. Displaying the error msg with the CYRF and reboot. So first, I will remove the multi-module to check if the TX is ok.
