Since I see no Sliders used in the .otx (FM, INPUTS, MIXES) That does not seem surprising to me.

Re: How do I read single cell voltages in Telemetry screen?

Is the total voltage called Cels? If it is you make Calculated telemetry entries like Cels.PNG Having the Total Voltage of the battery does NOT give you access to individual cells. This is not an OpenTX problem, it is a Lemon Telemetry problem. But since you didn't believe the first time, you probab...

Re: Few questions/issues with QX7 configuring logical switches/telemetry

The telemetry values returned from Spektrum receivers are not the same as the ones returned from FrSky. TRSS is supposedly telemetry received signal strength.

Re: First timer issues on QX7

AETR is very old, it matches many users because it matched Futaba. Futaba was king before Spektrum existed. (But Spektrum txs were just JRs in the beginning...sort of.)

on channel use 'cut' 1 on the Thr line, then you can 'paste' it to chn3.
The same kind of operation you would use on WORD or SpreadSheet.

Re: First timer issues on QX7

I think the Mixes order is wrong.
The mix order should AETR for the iRange 4in1. Internal it remaps the channels to Spektrum/JR order unless it is a very old 4in1 module

Re: Question on switches

A two position switch is emulated by using SA(up) and not SA(up), i.e. !SA(up). The weight is automatically determined and need not be specified. Weight normally is set for INPUTS or MIXES. So if you wanted to use the switch to control a channel output you would normally do something like this: Ch7 ...

Re: Matching dual elevator

I think it would be easiest for someone to help if you posted your .otx.
If you do be sure to note which model you are working on.

I'm guessing it is a setup error, provided you have the same model servos and the location of pushrods are in the same control horn locations

Re: Mixes insert before or after

In MIXES they are normally additive, although they can be changed to multiply or replace. Replace does exactly that, it replaces all mixes before the mix that is replace. This is not true in INPUTS. In INPUTS the first one that is true is the only one used. See http://rcdiy.ca/opentx-transmitter-fir...

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: No throttle

Two viable candidates are

Maybe you gave a throttle cut set on a new model.
