Frsky X6R Sbus
« on: June 19, 2018, 09:31:31 AM »
Ok so I have My Frsky X6R Sbus receiver.... Well about ten of them now, but still don't fully understand what to do with the Sbus port.

Yes I know I can use the FrSky SBUS to PWM Decoder to give four more channels for non Sbus servos, but what about the use of Sbus servos direct from that port, can't seem to find any info on that or is it because it is not possible ?

frank.

I think what you do need is an S-Bus programmer/channel changer to tell each S-Bus servo which channel to respond to.- https://www.t9hobbysport.com/frsky-servo-sbus-channel-changer

The channel changer just reassigns the channels on the decoder, What I am asking is can you connect sbus servos via a cable direct to the sbus port.

The channel changer just reassigns the channels on the decoder, What I am asking is can you connect sbus servos via a cable direct to the sbus port.
well, yes.  The description for the channel changer also states that it sets the channels on servos "It features an easy to read OLED display. Simply plug in your servo, connect the power source compatible with the servo (3-16 volts). The display will show the current channel the servo is assigned to. Use the adjustment wheel, change the channel, then sellect "SET"".  You then connect the sbus servo direct to the sbus output on the receiver, though from what I've seen sbus servos are not cheap. 
Alternately for non sbus servos the XPS Systems X10+ will give up to 11 sbus outputs - https://www.xtremepowersystems.net/proddetail.php?prod=XPS-X10%2B - I have a couple spare if you want to give them a go.  I used them for the receiver redundancy feature plus the extra channel outputs for petrol models.  Sadly I've had to give up ic models so I have these sitting doing nothing.

Incidentally, you can connect multiple decoders to the receiver in parallel using Y leads to get up to 16 channel outputs.  You can also use chained Y leads to link up as many SBus servos as you like (as long as the load doesn't melt the lead!)

Thanks Guys.
Have been trawling through the UK suppliers nobody has both in stock, but all have one or the other, so I would incur double P&P, I know it's only a few quid but it irritates me !

As I am not in a hurry have ordered both decoder and channel changer from Horusrc in Hong Kong, bit cheaper and free P&P and about.........................A two week wait !
