So I have a fully functioning quad copter on a FlySky TH(x radio using FrSky DJT module and D4R-II reciever.  

I decided I wanted telemetry and such so I purchased a FrSky Taranis Plus.  I set up a model in the Taranis and proceed to bind my D4R-II.  I plug in a telemetry port to my Naze23 flight controler and set up telemetry in the Taranis. The copter will not take off. It will rotate left but not right It will pitch forward and roll right but not pitch backward or roll left.  Moving the sticks in such a fashon causes the motors to spin even faster.  

I even checked in Clean Flight and the Taranis is sending signals properly to the D4R-II and down to the Naze32

Frustrated I re-bind the D4R-II to the DJT module in the D4R-II which it was working with and go back out Now with the Th9X/DJT it is acting just as it did with the Taranis.  What could be wrong?  Naze32?  D4R-II? 

Frustrated as I dumped more into the Taranis than I did into the Quad and now I can't even fly

+Dean Cory The thing is you might need to feed your BT module with 3.3V TTL levels on RX/TX (this was clearly written on my HC-06 module PCB). Initially I tried a genuine FTDI TTL-232R-5V (5V version) cable but wasn't able to get the communication going. Then I took a Prolific PL2303 based cable and hallelujah! BTW there are different versions of FTDI cables on the market. TTL-232R-3V3 is claimed as 3V one. Also I tried an FTDI based adapter for Micro MWC flight controller sold by Hobbyking but one didn't work either.

I noticed that the free spool mod on your winch came in very handy!

It also looks like the ToyZuki motor mount helped out ttemendously.

How did the UNIMOG do?

So I got mine and tried to mount it to the mount in my ZMR 250.  But the mount requires the camera board be screwed to spacers and the spacers to the mount.  The issue is that all of the camera board has been cut away from the factory.

So Bruce, if I wanted to use this video tx with the Sony board cam (low cost miniquad #5) I need to pull 12 volts from the power distribution board.

Now to power the video tx 12 bolts from the power distribution board or 5 volts from the Naze32?

I ended up taking power (12 volts) from the Power Distribution Board to the Elgae VTx Harness.  I powered my Sony voard cam (Low Cost Mini Quad #5) from the 12 volt from the PDB to the VTx.

But I do not want to use a knob,  I would rather use the elevator switc on the left side of the radio.
