Buttons and flight modes and special functions

A couple of questions. I'm using my radio as the controller in the 5 channel mode (finally that I have a working adaptor). I'm using curves, expo settings and dual rates in the radio, not in the heli settings. I'm using the radio flight mode switch. As a result, Hel-X has no idea which mode I'm in, ...

Re: USB adapter can use only 4 channels

What is the output about the controller in the terminal window? It says it is named Љ PPM; has three digital components Trigger, Thumb, Thumb2; has five analog components x, y, z, rx, ry; and there's a configuration file it is using. Basically the same thing jstest is saying. The buttons are not fu...

USB adapter can use only 4 channels [SOLVED] (sort of)

I have a USB adapter that seems to be identical to the one sold by Amazon (listed on the recommended adapters page). The USB vendor ID and device ID are 0401:0401, the device string is "Љ PPM▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒" (probably a problem with character encoding). It advertises itself as having 5 axes but only 4 a...

Re: Fullscreen slowness

What driver are you using? Is it the normal one from the kernel? I am have the same graphics in my i5 and HELI-X does not start for me on Linux. Regarding your problem, I guess there is a way to check the resolution when running in maximized mode. Is it (almost) the same as running in fullscreen or...

Re: Fullscreen slowness

I guess it depends on the resolution. You might try a smaller screen resolution in fullscreen. Michael The maximized window is 1352x2560, the fullscreen window is 1440x2560, the difference in pixel count is about 6% but the difference in performance is more than x2. Something is not right... Edit: ...

Fullscreen slowness

I have noticed that HELI-X in fullscreen mode is sluggish on my machine. It only gives me 15-20 FPS. When the window is maximised (this is only marginally smaller than fullsccreen), I'm getting 35-50 FPS. I have i7-4770K, a 2560x1440 screen and onboard Intel 4600 graphic (no discrete graphics card),...

Two problems with landing on tables.

I have found two problems while toying around with heli-flying-field. Saving/loading the scene when the heli is sitting on the table doesn't work correctly. The heli ends up being buried inside the table. When the heli touches the table in just the right way, it is sometimes violently thrown in a ra...

Re: 120° CCPM?

Thanks for the answer! Fortunately I have discovered that I have to use the 90 setting for the heli too, before I flew it for the first time ;) Apparently the mixing is done in the receiver. But wouldn't it be a useful option in the simulator?

120° CCPM?

Hi, I'm trying to get into the hobby, just learning the basics. I have a heli with a CCPM 120° swash plate, and the transmitter is set up accordingly. Can I use it in this configuration with Heli-X? I couldn't find anything in the menus. I have tried to just calibrate the sticks normally, but this d...
