Re: Need Help With Time Alerts on Taranis Q X7

Why not use the momentary switch to call out the time when it is pressed? That way you can find out how long you have been up without an annoying callout every 5 minutes. I use this switch to give a range of telemetry readings at once, including the time elapsed.

Re: OpenTX X10S to Tarranis QX7

I would also add:

Do check that the function of each facet of your model setup works as expected on your model before flying. Occasionally not everything is converted exactly.

Have you tried the link above? That smart throttle cut certainly works on a Horus X10 with OpenTX 2.2.3. Been using it for several years now.

Martin, If you have this logical switch working as you say, how much problem would it be for you to post a (EEPE?) file for downloading as a template?

Re: Throttle cut using logical switch. (abandoned).

Basically this routine has no direct effect on the servo whatsoever. All it does is sets the throttle channel to -100 no matter where the throttle stick is.

Re: Throttle cut using logical switch. (abandoned).

Basically the OP wanted a throttle cut without using extra receiver channels, and wanted to do this using logical switches. My suggestion was to have engine idle set at about -80 and use a software throttle cut which would set the throttle at -100 and thus stop the engine.

Re: Throttle cut using logical switch.

Hi Jim Look at L02. You have put !L03 each time instead of L03. The ! in front means, L03 is not true. You might need to check everything, as sometimes ! is used and sometimes not. Its a bit annoying, OpenTX lists all the ! options before the normal options. You need to scroll down the list further.

Re: Setting Trim values

Because I don't want the motor to stop when idling as when you are 3Ding the worst thing that can happen is the motor to stop and then the ESC takes a couple of seconds to start the motor back up again. You don't get that linear throttle response. Have you checked the settings on the ESC? Often you...

Re: OpenTX 2.2 Documentation for the Taranis and Horus Transmitters

I presume you mean programming for the 6 axis accelerometer. It was never implemented by the programmers. I think there was some problem getting the data out of the accelerometer. It is still sitting there as one of the issues from May 2016.

2.2 does a better job of conversion than 2.1 did. Sliders seem to be the only real problem, if you use a slider for flaps, check that function carefully.

I believe that companion converts them? So, not a big deal? :) Yep. Although going from 2.0 to 2.2 there have been lots of improvements so there still is some manual work. Handling of telemetry changed entirely in 2.1. But everything related to model control is maintained, it's only "accessory stuf...

1. You will need to redo any telemetry as that is now quite different. However they sensors you have work fine. 2. Go straight to 2.2 not 2.1.Make a backup of your SD card and your models first. 3. The sounds are different. Copy your custom sounds onto the SD card after installing the 2.2 SD card fi...
