I believe Bluetooth on the radio does not currently allow PC connectivity, only wireless trainer is supported.

How do you you pair 2 radios for using in a trainer setup using bluetooth? One must be slave and the other master, right? Can you select on the radio whether it is master or slave?

Absolutely no idea, didn't look at it at all. I don't even have hardware.

Could also be that it only supports telemetry right now.

Hy,
what can I do with bluetooth now at the X9E

Does anyone have an example?

No support at openTx until now?

What says Frsky about?

I believe you can connect to it with a PC, and you'll get a stream with the telemetry data.
Nothing else done so far.

It's a Bluetooth 4 LE device, which is perhaps not supported by your PC.

And even if it is it doesn't work like the "old" Bluetooth with virtual COM ports anymore, it needs a dedicated app that uses the new bluetooth APIs.

Do you know which software to use to receive streamed telemetry?

Bluetooth is actually completely unused at this point.
