    Hey all ( and by all I mean bjr981s, lol)
    So i recently got the F210 3d-z-09 and i have a Turnigy Evolution on its way... and since these things never come with instructions, especially Walkera... where do i go from here? Is there a How to i can follow? Do i need any other additional parts? Whats the next step? Thanks!

    Hmmm, Sorry to say this but, I don't believe the Turnigy Evolution has the functionality to work here.

    The Evolution is a low end FlySky system based on the i6S Transmitter. Built specifically for HobbyKing.

    The problem is the channel order for FlySky is AETR. For Walkera it is EATR. so you need to transpose Channel 1 and 2. This is not possible within the radio as it is functional primitive.

    So your only choice is to use Cleanflight V1.2.0. Now Walkera have implemented a Hardware based system (Switch) to implement the external RX for PPM or S-Bus options. I suspect that the channel order is not controlled by Cleanflight but hard wired in the FW and HW.

    The only way to tell is to try with Cleanflight. It will either work or not. I would give you a 5% chance of success. ( don't try and Set PPM or S-Bus in Cleanflight. It is handled in the Proprietary Walkera FW. Just change try and transpose the A and E channels.)

    This is one of those should have asked the question first. Sorry.

    Cheers

    Soooo lets say i wanted to try to hook it up anyways... what would i need to do in order to get the new receiver to bind? do i need to change anything in clean flight? The switch on the F210 3D-Z-09 lets you choose sbus or ppm. The Radio let me switch my output to PMW or PPM and serial to i-BUS or S. Bus. I can also reverse channels on the radio. But all that happens when i have everything plugged in is the beeping like to cant bind?

    Reversing the channels just changes left to right.

    You have to transpose channel 1 and 2. The radio cant do that. It is unlikely that you can do this with Cleanflight as I suspect that the channel order is in the Walker OEM firmware and fixed.

    You should be able to get it to bind but it is unlikely to arm and will certainly not fly.

    Cheers

    Ok, if i wanted to attempt to transpose the channels how would i go about doing that? does the External receiver need to be in PPM or SBUS? all the drone dose as of right now is beep like it cant find a receiver...

    The TX does not support Channel transposition. It wont matter if its in PPM, PWM or S-Bus, i-Bus or anything else.

    As I said you can try in Cleanflight but I don't think it will work. I think the FC will override the Cleanflight settings.

    Ok i get that it might not work, but i still would like to try. Could you be as detailed as possible and tell me how i would go about doing that? Right now when plugged in to cleanflight it dosent even recognize that a receiver is present, so i literally have no clue what im doing...

    Sounds like you have not set up the radio or the RX correctly.

    The receiver and radio come prebound, according to the manual. Is there something on the walkera that im not doing correctly?
