Comment on How to bind X8R to the FrSky Taranis in different modes by crashpilot

If I understand it correctly, L9R does not allow any changes to the assignments of channels to the connectors. ch 1-9 are fixed to conventional pins and ch 1-12 are on the single sbus. You could:
A) connect additional devices listening to ch 9-12 on the same Sbus together with your APM 2.6
B) check APM 2.6 if its channel range could be changed to ch 5-12 instead. The same could be don on the Taranis in order to free up ch1-4 for additional devices on the conventional pins of the L9R

Comment on How to bind X8R to the FrSky Taranis in different modes by Mario v V

Hello
I have a drone that had a 8 bit gimbal controller that I replaced with a alexmos 32 bit controller. I use a taranis with a X8R rx. The cable that were connected on the 6 and 7 port of the X8R was connected to the old 8 bit board. The new board has a plug on the PWM/PPM/S-Bus port. I connected the same cable to this input, changed the setting in GUI to futaba s-bus ,but the taranis do not control the gimbal. Any suggestions.
