I currently have a Vexplorer and was wondering if there was a way to bind it to a custom transmitter like a fancy Futaba?
I know nothing about binding transmitters but I have a little RC helicopter called the Blade MCX and I plan on getting a new transmitter for it and thought it would be nice to be able to bind that same transmitter to my vexplorer. I’m probably going to end up buying a Futaba since they are well build and usually have a lot of options. I’m probably gonna end up getting a six channel Futaba for other uses too, but I believe the Vexplorer is 4 channels and my helicopter is 4 channels. I’m just not sure if I can actually bind it to the default reciever kit that comes with the Vexplorer or if I should invest in the other one Vex sells.
One digital signal can always be interpreted into another digital signal.
The complexity to do this is another matter. You need to learn about PPM conversion. You could potentially write your own PPM translator but you would need to be very familiar with the Futaba PPM stream.
The first step is you need a programmable microcontroller like the VEX controller (unfortunately the Vexplorer is not programmable)
I would suggest finding someone who has already made a PPM inverter and using their code.
