Help using PPM with quadcopter

#1
Hi,

So i am trying to use this flight controller,
https://www.getfpv.com/lumenier-lux-f7-ultimate-flight-controller-dual-gyros.html
and connect it with this transmitter,
https://www.banggood.com/FlySky-FS-...EAQYASABEgKrHPD_BwE&ID=42481&cur_warehouse=CN

The problem I'm having is I can't get the Joysticks to make anything happen on the receiver tab in Betaflight. I can get Betaflight to manually control all the motors and I do have my transmitter and receiver properly bound. I am using R2 on my flight controller which is supposed to be where the PPM signal comes in. However, nothing is happening. Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Thanks

PPM comes out of channel one on the rx and you have to make sure you have PPM enabled in the rx setup in the transmitter. I just got the i6 myself and it all says channel 1. Past these items I can't be of much use.

PPM is 8 channels. Unfortunately I don't think this Rx outputs PPM, it is PWM only. Something like the X6B that outputs ibus is what you want to use, as @FDS said.

I think it does allow PPM. In my Flysky menu options I have a setting called PPM Output and I can set the Receiver PPM output to on.
