There have been several people on this forum who have mentioned that the Spark MAX is able to follow the Talon SRX’s output via CAN, however, I am unable to get this feature working using the latest firmware. When running, the Talon SRX indicator LED’s show that the unit is outputting something, however, the Spark MAX’s LED stays in the neutral connected state.
Has anyone had any success (specifically with the Java API) with this on the latest firmware? I’m unsure as to whether it’s an issue with my code or the firmware/API.
The Spark MAX firmware version is v1.0.381 and the Talon SRX firmware version is v4.11.
I had a similar question on another thread that hasn’t been answered yet. My main concern was whether or not it’s possible in brushless mode. I might try it tonight, and post back if it works. Let me know if you get any progress.
We have confirmed that the latest Talon firmware 4.x has changed how following is implemented. Unfortunately, we need some time to decode how following works with their new firmware before the MAX will be able to follow a Talon again.
