Receiver Firmware

Post by Malc » Fri Mar 02, 2018 1:26 pm

I have a number of V8FR-11 & V8R4-II frisky receivers which I have been using on my Taranis X9D Transmitter year of manufacture about 2012 using Mode D8.
I now a new Taranis X9D Plus EU-LBT Transmitter, is it possible to update the firmware of these receivers so that I can use receivers to use on my new Taranis X9D Plus EU-LBT Transmitter in Mode 16?
My old Taranis was NOT a Taranis Plus.

No, they only support D8.

If you just want to be able to use your old receivers on your new transmitter you can download and install openTX firmware without checking EU option and you should be able to bind them in D8 mode on the new transmitter. The other modes will still be EU-LBT, it just gives you D8 mode also.

I believe this is not possible with the Taranis Plus EU-LBT Transmitter .
When to select Taranis Plus in the settings you do not get the option of the D8 mode.

Yes you can do that in Open TX Companion .
But when to turn on the Taranis you can NOT select D8 mode!
