    Hi Guys, this is my 2nd racing quad I build, because I lost my first one in a neighboorhood.
    For my first one I had a FC, a PDB and used PPM to connect to the receiver.

    This time I went for a all in one board, with 4x esc, FC, and PDB, only problem what I'm facing right now is, this board doesn't has PPM to connect to the receiver, but uses S or Ibus.
    Receiver is already bind to the transmitter, but I can not get my input in cleanflight.
    When I move my sticks, cleanflight doesn't move anything.

    In the attachments I have added 2 pictures, that's how I wired the Racerstar to the receiver;
    Receiver > Racerstar
    G to GND
    V+ to 5V
    S to SID

    Made a little video to show you, link is down below:


    Thats how I wired it, hope this is clear.

    my parts:
    Racerstar StarF3S 30A BL_S 4 In 1 ESC 5 V BEC w/F3
    FS-IA6B Receiver
    Emax 2600kv Motors
    FS-I6 Transmitter

    Ppm or ibus. No sbus for FS equipment.

    On the ia6b the ibus pins are the 3 horizontal pins on the right side. Ground on the inside, 5v middle & signal on the end.

    The ia6b rx doesn't though. Ppm or ibus only.

    Ia6b does sbus. Sorry but I've been led to think something else. I thought only ppm signal which ibus rides on.

    So you can put an ia6b on sbus pins on fcb & that i6x works ? So will any sbus rx work then ? Frsky.
    Or still only FS equipment.
    Stuff is getting alot smaller in this hobby.
    I just received a new, well new to me
    FS-RX2A Pro. It's stamp size with more range supposedly than all the others they have. I may swap the Unify nano from my stingy frame with this GEP rx.
    As they both the same size & not even 3 grams between them.
    I didn't realise the tramp hv I bought was the euro version. Although it said
    0-600mw its only 25mw. False advertisement. Lesson learned.
    But it does get me around my spot with ease & without static. See how far this GEP gets me on range.

    In the UK FPV frequencies that can actually be used legally is limited, 2.4ghz 10mw and 5.8ghz 25mw. Many official companies will not want to get slammed for selling illegal stuff.

    BTW they sell 3 versions.

    Lots of UK sellers selling things they shouldn't be. I'm legal in my park & not when I'm not. No one is selling the race wand. & not that many about to unlock it. :(

    :rolleyes: ... ( A bit of thread jumping here) ... Hey Moz, did you get that capacitor question sorted on the
    small frame that a 1000 mfd low ESR cap was too big for ? ... I saw the thread, but couldn't reply at the time
    and now have lost where it was! o_O

    The EU versions of most vtx's are meant to be easy to unlock.

    Looking at your pic, I see this connection on your FC.

    Not much difference in size of a 25v to a 36v, so I opted for a 16v 470uf.
    It's about 1cm long by 1cm wide.
    See how it goes.

    If that blows I'll hunt around for same voltage but a higher ufl.

    Oh, I watched again, so the only mistake I made was the white wire, it should be soldered to a Rx point, I will add a picture to where I'm gonna solder it:
