Re: New openTX features

Thanks. I am running my old Corona V1 module in PPM mode and comparing it to the output from the Multi module. Pascal is assisting me in defining the Corona V1 protocol. The Multiprotocol module has so many protocols and on my Taranis I see where I can enter values on many protocols. I am not sure w...

Re: New openTX features

Yes, most of them seem to be using ersky9x.
Opentx is able to read all the Multimodule protocals and display them as options
so I assume someone on the opentx side knows the meaning of the options??

Re: .eepe vs .bin

I also notice that the eepe and hex files are the same size.
Are they identical files?(are they both hexadecimal formats?)
The bin file is less than half the size of the other two.
Interesting.

Donations

I would like to make two donations, one for OpenTX Firmware and one for Companion.
From the donations tab I see how to make one to OpenTX.
Would a part of this donation make its way to Companion or
is there a more direct way to donate to the Companion work?

Re: Taranis SWR Survey

"who cares"
I guess I care. If I have a SWR of 75 it means one thing to me (get out of the sky).
If I have a RSSI of 75 it has a very different meaning (I am a happy pilot).

Re: 2.0.1 Ext module failsafe

Yes, if the transmitter signal dies the receiver will take over in a predefined failsafe mode (if it is a failsafe type receiver).

Re: using two different 2.4 modules simultaneously

Thanks everyone for all the good input. My original concern had to do with interference due to the two 2.4ghz antennas being so close together. No one seems to have had much of a problem with interference. I will try it out with some long range testing.

Is it true that the ones that can be daisy chained will have both a din and a dout and
the ones that need the hub will only have a dout?

Smart port and old sensors

I have seen that old hub data port sensors can be connected through the vario to be used with the x receivers.
My question is can multiple data port sensors be daisy chained (din to dout to din to dout to vario din) through the vario
to interface with the x receivers?

Re: Another Noobe trying to compile for Taranis

Thanks all once again.
I loaded the libraries and was able to make for Taranis.
I still have to revert to the 4.7, but I don't expect any problems there.
It is certainly helpful to have these forums.
Thanks again
