F405-wing - INAV - PPM problems

#1
Hey everyone, hope your well

So I'm new here and new to this hobby but I hope this is the right place to find a few answers,

I'm having an issue at the moment with an F405-wing - flashed with INAV and trying to get it to talk to a FS-iA6 in ppm mode.
According to the FC's spec sheet i should use R2 for PPM input.
I am powering the receiver with a separate battery, this should not cause issue as far as I am aware.

If I select PPM in INAV, when I open the receiver tab everything is greyed out.

I have tried to select older firmware, but then INAV tells me to update before I can do anything.

Does anyone have any idea how i could fix this?

(in the long run I do plan to use a different receiver, I'm just annoyed I cannot make this work)

Hey welcome to the FT Forums!

You may need to dump your configuration or generate a bunch of tedious screenshots of the Ports and Configuration and Receiver screens...

You can dump the configuration from the CLI window, entering the command "dump" and copying the output (all of it) and pasting it here with the "code" format:

You should be looking for the RX_PPM (I think) setting to be enabled.

Here are some pictures from INAV and a #dump

I don't think that receiver supports CPPM output, only PWM, which doesn't seem to be supported by the F405 FC. I would upgrade the Rx to one that supports IBUS.
