    Hi. I have been looking for a new transmitter receiver set for my rc submarine. We all no that getting an old 40mhz unit is getting harder.
    So I was interested to read that the new Frsky tandem transmitter can work with submarines. However I am not technically minded at all, so can anyone in the know please let me know if these transmitters will indeed allow submarines to be controlled when under water, and would there be any problems using them in the U.K. alongside other transmitters. Thanks.

    Hi Michael,

    Have a read of this thread, if you haven't already. We are pushing the boundaries of knowledge here so your experiences would be very valuable. I have only used 458 Mhz so far but I am sure someone on here will give some more "hands-on " advice for this frequency.

    Michael,

    This link specifically details my experiences with the FrSky equipment. I own 4 different FrSky radios, with 2 different generations of 900 mhz equipment. if you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask.

    Frsky 900 mhz 24 ghz transmitter  Empty X18

    Post  Michaelc Wed Dec 13, 2023 3:48 pm

    Well after reading a few comments on various sites I ordered an x18 and receiver ( wife not seen the bill yet). This is going to control a submarine with 5 channels being used for sure, but maybe 6 if I add a few lights. The one thing that puts me off flysky products is that they are more for planes then anything else. I am hoping that I will be able to set up the transmitter within the software to suit the submarine.

    Fingers crossed that the receiver you chose was the r9 sx.

    You should have no problems setting it up, but it is a world of difference from the robbe f14 you appear to have used prior to it.  again, if you have any questions regarding setup, i am happy to help.

    I have both the x20 and the xe, so i am quite familiar with the ethos firmware.

    Frsky 900 mhz 24 ghz transmitter  Empty Need help

    Post  Michaelc Sun Dec 17, 2023 2:33 pm

    Hi, ok tried to do the following. First bind the receiver to the transmitter. The receiver is a TD6R as I wish to use the 900mhz band. So after a bit of fooling around I got the flashing green led to turn to a solid blue and the name of the receiver to show up within the transmitter.
    So I plugged in all the servos and tried to get something moving and well nothing moves.
    How do I make sure that the transmitter and receiver are paired for the only model I have on the transmitter. And how do I make the controls work. Sorry to be a pain. But I have no idea at all what I am doing here.

    It sounds like you need a quick class in how to set up a model in Ethos, the firmware that FrSky uses on it tandem radios...

    although this is specifically aimed at model airplane flyers, the basics are the same...

    If you follow along with the video, and still can't get it to work, let me know.
