Re: Some sounds do not play in Opentx 2.2.1 not Companion

I should have asked what transmitter also. I only use X9D and QX7, and have no knowledge of X10 or X12...maybe different there.

Re: Some sounds do not play in Opentx 2.2.1 not Companion

too_low has a bit rate of 22050. This is not a supported bit rate, I believe only 8000, 16000 and 32000 are supported. I'm suprized too_high.wav works. Its name is greater than 6.3 characters.

Re: TGY-i6S How can I reverse the running of 2 motors?

As Kilrah said, you are more likely to find these in boats and cars.
If the Speed Controller does not have a built in reverse, then NO you cannot make them run backward.

Re: Taranis X9D+ channels are all wrong on the Rx

Using Companion you can just use cut and paste. It only works line by line, not page by page but is still faster than editing on the transmitter or starting from scratch or retyping all lines. The Input order does not matter.Just make the MIXES correct and you are good to go. Logical Switches and Sp...

Re: ***HELP US PLEASE*** Q x7 5 flight modes for Cheerson cx-20

You need a set of logical switches to select 1 of 5 flight modes. Assuming you really mean Flight Modes in the QX7 OpenTx 2.2 terminology. And flight controllers to transmitters. The terminology is different from manufacture/operating system(firmware) to manufacture/operating system(firmware). 0,1, ...

If you upgraded from 2.0.x, you may not realize that the sensors must be discovered for each model.
Tx and Rx powered and sensors connected, then on telemetry page scroll down to "Discover Sensors' and enter.

Yes, SD needs to be in sync with firmware.
OpenTx, Companion, SD and bootloader are best if all kept in sync.
