Re: FlySky Protocol and ER9X in 9XR transmitter

I have the same equipment, ER9X, on aT9X, Flysky RX: I can fly my Radian glider high enough to almost strain my eyes, never a problem with range. However, just to be safe, I always mount the Rx antenna outside the body of the fuse. Looks like a little red muffler, kinda cool. I once did a side by si...

Keep improving the Wizard

Improving the Wizard, has some merit, but .... Sounds like a good candidate to be a "memory hog", and endless "scope creep". Also, getting a wizard to make modifications to an existing model, can get really complex. In the end, you'll have to get down and dirty and make the changes "manually". The w...

Include a Tutorial/library CD with the Taranis

What would help a lot of new guys to this product, would be a CD or DVD that comes with the Taranis, that contains all the possible Templates, Pdf files of all user manuals, videos, ie. all the stuff which would help new users.

Re: Charging the 9XR pro battery

You should really remove the battery and charger it with a proper Lipo battery charger. Even one of those 5 dollar Lipo chargers from HK would be fine.

A "Feature" not a "Bug"?!

Hmmmmm would it be possible that you discovered a nice "Feature"? 100% brightness at only a total of 2.2ma, sound's like efficient power usage to me = improved Tx battery flight time. As a pro software tester for 15 years, I would say you definitely did good by noticing this and bringing it to the d...

Re: At this point should I wait for the Taranis Plus ?

From what I'm reading, it sound like the Taranis Plus is worth waiting for, since I'm not in an extreme rush. Sounds like, compared to the 9XR-Pro, JR shape style and feel, the Taranis quad bearing Gimbals, wider screen, openTx2.0 with the Model Wizard... and compared to the Taranis vers. A., better...
