Re: Haptic Module NOT working (Taranis with FrSky Haptic)

Well, I fixed this in the end by replacing the vibration motor. It turned out one of the leads came loose from the motor casing. Luckily I had a vibration motor laying around, one that is a little bit bigger than the original one. I don't know for sure if the update from 2.0.12 -> 2.0.15 did anythin...

Re: Haptic on Early Taranis

Really? I am going to open my Taranis at once to check mine.

EDIT: Wires seem to be soldered on the right way. Will have to test some more :x

Re: Taranis Plus Haptic feedback not working?

I just bumped another thread about this. I added the module a few months ago but it never worked. Will update my Taranis to see whether this was accidentally fixed in the meantime.

Re: Haptic Module NOT working (Taranis with FrSky Haptic)

Just installed a haptic module in my B01 Taranis and ... nothing! My soldering is OK and the module looks fine. Enabled the option in the FW (OpenTX 2.0.12) and set it to 'All' but to no avail.
How can this be properly tested?

I got the haptic from Aloft Hobbies and the Taranis from HobbyKing.

Re: OpenTX 2.0.0

Ah, I saw that too when I was setting up my model too with a D4R-II. I had to set it to S.PORT to get Hub/D telemetry going. Explain it left or right, but to the user that is wrong.

Re: [MAVLINK] Input needed for MAVLINK ArduPlane / ArduCopte

Native Mavlink in Taranis, oh yeah :)
It was announced by kha to be added to OpenLRSng, but he is too busy and doesn't own an APM or other Mavlink device. To have it in the radio directly would be ultimately awesome. Thanks upfront!

+1 for Companion as a Chrome extension! Look at Baseflight, Rapidflash and OpenLRSng configurator, they all are excellent pieces of software. I am sure that Companion can be made like that too. It would give you automatic updates, multi platform support and what not. Good suggestion. Verstuurd vanaf...

Running OpenTX, a friend of mine and myself have been experiencing dropouts on our models where this wasn't the case with ER9x or the stock firmware.

Re: openTx-r2152

But did you send back your EEPROM to the transmitter? The EEPROM has changed between these 2 versions, so if you didn't do it, it's normal that you have a Bad EEPROM error! Yes I tried once using the automatic eeprom backup/upgrade function when I flashed from within Companion9x and once manually. ...

Re: Walkera MTC-01 'Magic Cube'

Since 2 days I am the lucky owner of a very nice Walkera New V120D02S with a Devo 10 TX. In the setup menu there is an option to change the output power, it goes up to 20 dBm which is equal to 100 mW. The default is 10 dBm (10 mW).

Should work, simply by plugging it into the trainer port, maybe with a little cable hack. Well, they claim that it only works on WK-2x0x models (correct me if i am wrong) and Android phones.

Re: hk backlight mod

You probably put the BL in upside down! Only one side illuminates, follow the SP installation instructions closely.
I have the white BL and it definitely makes a big difference in readability.
