Re: Taranis X9E and flaps setup.

Have you downloaded Companion for the Taranis? It has a simulator that will show servo motions and rates. Very useful for learning how things work on the Taranis.

Re: EBike discussions

I'd worry about torque with a typical outrunner. I suggest you look into the motor in the hub wheels. I have one and it's very nice and quiet. When the lead acid batteries go I was thinking about building a new pack from A123 cells. They are much more robust than lipos and no fire hazard. You could ...

Re: Correctly announce slider value

I had a similar problem. I was using GV's to set optimal mixes for early shake down flights (while flying.) I really only wanted the final readings. I made it announce every time the GV changed and then again 5 seconds later.

Re: Receiver numbers when when two modules used.

There are separate but setting one automatically sets the other to the same number, at least in OpenTx 2.0.15. I've never been able to set them to different numbers in the transmitter. You can set them to unique numbers in Companion.

Receiver numbers when two modules used.

I built a camera module that can be moved from plane to plane. It's build around a DSM2 receiver for the pan and tilt. I use a DSM2 hack module in my Taranis to run the camera and the internal XJT module for the plane's controls. The trouble is that the receiver numbers have to match when you set up...

Re: Should rates and expos go in inputs or mixer?

Because there is usually more than one way to do things, you should do what makes sense to you.

In my case, I put controls, rates and expo (switches and sticks) on [Input...

Re: Telemetry problem - Taranis X9D + X8R

You haven't set up telemetry on the "telemetria" page. You won't get the telemetry until you tell the Tx what the the signals it's receiving from the X8R are for.

Re: "Official" upgrade for Taranis to Plus?

The Plus has haptic and a better LCD display. It also comes with the larger battery and better sliders that recent Taranii have. It's certainly easier to just buy a new Taranis plus if you want those features. I'm not sure the main board and LCD are even available as parts yet.

Re: model setup via radio

You can program the radio itself. However, you may find it easier to use eepe to work out the program and simulate it. When you are happy with it, print it out and manually program the radio. (It's also nice to have the paper copy to record changes you make in the field.)

They should have done that to the taranis because the horus seem to be much more capable hardwarewise. It's a waste of power...

Re: Power tools

I'd go for another Hitachi if you can get one with the same batteries and charger. I love mine. I had 2 old Dewalts with four packs and two chargers. It was really nice to have a both driver and a drill setup so you didn't have to switch. With 4 packs I always had a charged battery too.

Sounds like this is in a 9XR. Did you leave the stock antenna in too? What did you use for a power supply to the module? If it works at all it's unlikely to be the code. More likely it's your module.
