Re: Looking for help with logic switches for throttle

For a start. Does a bit more than just the sticky throttle too. L1 checks for Throttle Stick under -99 (fully to the bottom) L2 makes sure L1 is met AND SF is 'enabled' (not Throttle Cut) L3 'sticks' if L2 is met.... and 'unsticks' if SF goes to 'disabled' (Throttle Cut) L4 Checks if the Throttle in...

Re: Taranis: Set up Rudder & Nose gear Mixing

You might also use the Gear Switch as a 'gate' (enable/disable) for that Ch6 Steering, so that steering is only enabled when the Gear is DOWN. So that using Rudder whilst you retract the Gear will not make it do funky moves (turns) and possibly hit the fuselage sides as it goes in. Ch6, Max, "0", Sw...

OpenTX (V2.2 ?) Sounds structure - idea/request

I don't think this is supported in OpenTX so far (?) Could it be made to allow SUB-FOLDERS - much like the SYSTEM folder is used by the system. I have a LOT of Model specific Functions sounds. And a lot of Model 'information' sounds. When you have a lot of sounds, you have to scroll 'for days' when ...

BUT..... how come you can fill up a Taranis way before 60 models? I guess it has less EEPROM, or spare, than the 9XR Pro ?

OpenTX 2.0.20 9XR Pro Bytes Free

This seems a silly question.... I was upgrading a 9XR Pro to OpenTX 2.0.20 (hopefully I got that number/version right) for a friend and I could not find the "Byte Free" (remaining model memory) anywhere on it. In the Model Setup screen it is not on the top line as per a Taranis for example. I hunted...

Re: Companion Log Viewer - "Knots"

So in 2.1 you set up for 'duplicate' sensor(s), set for the two different units, and it will Log those automatically - or do you have to set up a set of factors to log. eg both of those then?

Looks like I better finally change to V2.1 !!

In the Companion Viewer? But you still not get to CHANGE that in the Viewer if you want to see other number systems? So that would be good to have in the Viewer (conversion I guess). At least it helps a bit to get it in the format you were using.... Is the number format stored in the Log files then?...

Telemetry logs "oddity"

I am not sure where the issue comes from but in the Companion Log Viewer - all versions 'forever' - I have always been shown a chart of the values with a "wave" in them. The wavering value is certainly not what truly happened during the flight it was recorded. This applies to pretty all all (ALL?) t...

Companion Log Viewer - "Knots"

The Companion Log Viewer only gives you a unit of measurement of KNOTS for Airspeed.
Also only METRES for barometer Altitude.

Could it be set up (future version) to allow configuration of the units you want to use/see?
eg Airspeed (any speeds) in Knots, Kmh, Mph (m/s ?)
Altitude in Metres and in Feet

9XR OpenTX and Trainer Port

Does the 9XR only run in Trainer Master mode if the 9XR was powered up by the JR Trainer Port? And if so, does that mean the PPM direction is then IN? Or OUT? I assume it would be IN, to accept the Slave's signals. As far as I can see you don't get to decide that in any OpenTX settings, so I assume ...

Is it just that way on the 9XR (or maybe a few TX types)?
Versus Taranis having a pop up menu. Maybe that can't be done viably on the 9XR. (I forget it ER9X had pop up menus)

When the "Low EEPROM memory" is displayed, what triggers this? Does it compare the largest model memory to what is free - thus telling you it won't be able to do at least one model with saving? Does it actually mean the system could crash (code) whilst in use (eg flying) because of a memory shortage...
