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: LiFe 3 cell battery for Taranis X9D Plus?

Operating Voltage Range:6-15v (2s, 3s Lipos are acceptable) The 3 cell LiFE is within specs for operating the tx, however the on-board charger does not support charging the LiFe. So you will have to remove your battery to charge it (safely.) The wall wart is just a power supply to the tx's on-board ...

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.

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.

Re: No throttle

Two viable candidates are

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.

|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.

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.
