Re: X9D (no plus) from .BIN to .OTX

what Kilrah said... document1.otx is the format of data stored on your PC by Companion. model.bin is the format stored on your transmitter by your transmitter. The transmitter does NOT use or understand the *.otx format. Yes you can put it on the SD , but you can store most anything you want on the ...

Re: Optimal battery pack for an X8R

The receiver would operate fine on a 2s Lipo, 4, 5, 6 cell Nicad or Nimh or AA....but your servos may not operate or last long. Servos generally expect about 6v.
Yes, you can plug the battery source into any channel or the SBUS port.

Re: frysky taranis 9d plus receiver

Since that shows sbus input, you will have 16 channels available. How many are used by that stack depends on what firmware it runs and what options you put on your drone. As tonnie says, your question is too general to give a definitive answer. But channels available via your X9D and an SBUS capable...

Re: frysky taranis 9d plus receiver

If your flight controller in the drone accepts SBus, There are several small FrSky receivers that will work. RX4R, XSR, and XM+(no telemetry). If SBus is not an option RX4R, RX6R or RX8R depending on how many channels you need. If by radio, you mean the transmitter, the internal RF module can transm...

I don't believe you can save one from within the simulator, I could be wrong. However,If you logged a flight you can load and replay it. From the LOGS, or anywhere else.

Re: No throttle

Two viable candidates are
Bad calibration of throttle channel
and
Maybe you gave a throttle cut set on a new model.

The easiest way to get help is probably to post your .otx so someone can see if there is a setup error.

Re: LUA script question

I did try it. There has to be a buffer or stack to queue up the sounds to be played. If you overflow it you will lose some of the queued files. But the buffer/stack will still be played for whatever is in the queue. Since it takes much longer the 30+- MILLISECONDS to play the sound file, the sounds ...

I think you are dropping in a new playFile every approximately 30 milliseconds. Much faster than the .wav can play. Change the 900 playFile to a print statement and watch the debug output in the simulator full up with printed output. I'm sure you know that the elev goes from -1024 to +1024. I would ...

Re: Mixing elevator to left and right aileron

|x|is the absolute value of the source, Ail.
So basically no matter which way you move ail, you get a positive value.
It acts likes a 'curve' of 3 values, y = +100, 0, +100.

Even if you want to do all programming on your Tx, using Companion with its simulator to see if what you think needs to be done has the correct effect is easier for many.

Re: OpenTx memory value special function

The replace Mix line takes 100% of the channel that is controlled by the throttle stick at the TIME you put SWy up.
So that channel is held at the value until you put the switch down.
Then the channel will jump to where the stick is presently positioned.
