Receiver number issue binding S6R

I have a very early Taranis A01, one of the first batch sold by Aloft, and ran into the mysterious receiver number issue. It wasn’t until I found a 2016 post by MikeB that I realized why I couldn’t get either an S6R or an S8R to bind with it, even though they bind fine with my QX7. I tried receiver ...

Can I get a hand over here?

First thing to do is always to go to the monitor screen and see what the transmitter is putting out. This allows you to determine whether the problem is with the transmitter or somewhere else. While you’re at it, make sure that elevator stick action is not the issue. But from the description it does...

Fine tune rockers locked how to unlock?

“Haven’t got any mixes.”
With ER9X, etc., you’ve always got mixes. They are what’s found on the Mixer page. Without mixes, nothing happens.
You’re thinking about traditional radios, where “mixes” are something optional that you use to do things like couple the rudder to aileron action.

"Smart" Throttle Cut?

Here’s a discussion of throttle cut, sticky and not.

There doesn’t seem to be any one-step way to get sticky.

Note: previous link didn’t work. This one gets you to the site; the throttle cut stuff is in OpenTX item 03.

Can I get a hand over here?

Every channel must have a mix if it is to do anything. Otherwise it just remains at neutral, unable to move a servo or drive a speed control. The mix may have just one input (like the Aileron stick) or several, but there has to be a mix for each active channel. One channel can drive two or more serv...

Taranis default channel order

The Channel Order selection simply sets the default order for new models. You can then move them around if you need to. The result will be sent to the RF module as you see it on the Mixer page. The RF module may then manipulate the order. For example, Multiprotocol, as used in the 4in1 modules and i...

Keep breaking XJT modules

Plugging or unplugging the module with power on can destroy it. So if your module is rattling around and breaking contact occasionally, I would assume that that’s the cause of your module failures.

1. The transmitter can handle up to 16 channels (or more). 2. FrSky makes a wide variety of receivers, including the XSR, X4R, X6R, and X8R, all of which provide telemetry. The motors on a quad are not controlled directly via PWM from the receiver, but by a flight controller. Normally, six or more c...

That setup won’t work with the Nano QX. The Nano QX does not use channel 5 at all. It requires that channel 6 be on a momentary switch with -100% for OFF and 100% for ON.

My ErSky9x transmitters show channel outputs in uSec on the limits page and in % on the main display (numerical values). I think you’ve already got what you’re asking for.

Edit: I checked and this feature was included from late 2013, so should be there in all subsequent versions.
