How to play telemetry value at value intervals e.g. every 100 feet change in altitude

Is there an easy way to do this? When thermaling, I would like altitude spoken for every +/- 100 feet in altitude.

Regards

Re: Model ID issue

Agreed, my point is it shouldn't have let me do that. When you copy a model, it should generate a new model ID

Model ID issue

Hi, Discovered a potential issue with Taranis and X series receivers. If you create a new model, it allocates a new model ID, and if you try to change it you get a warning if you pick an ID already in use. BUT If you copy a model, and bind a new RX, you can quite happily bind to the same model ID of...

Re: switch problem in FlySky with open TX

Hi,

Got the new switch, what's the best way to remove the old one. Not sure I can unsolder 8 pins simultaneously.

switch problem in FlySky with open TX

Hi, I had an original FlySky which I modded with sound and on screen Frsky telemetry. I passed this to a friend when I got my Taranis a couple of years ago. He went to use it for the first time this year (worked fine last year), seems the on/off switch has a problem. It needs to be turn on on and of...

Re: Cross trims?

You can't use instant trim and cross trims at the same time. Instant trims affects the wrong functions. I have asked for this feature several times over the years, without success.

RF-MFX720-JR Module Series Multi-Protocol Spectrum System with Taranis

Hi, Got one of the above to try out. I can bind to a spektrum rx, the lights indicate bind successful, if I turn taranis off and on, the rx starts a single flash indicating loss of signal, so they are talking, but no matter what I select in the taranis, I can't make any servos respond. Does anyone h...

Mixer question

In the mixer screen, where I choose the source, if for e.g.I want the throttle stick as the source, I have two choices, with a different icon to the left of the text 'THR' One is like a capital i the other might be a picture of the stick. What is the difference, they both seem to be the same. Robert

Re: Remember switch / pot settings bug ?

Hi, I have a follow up question now I have solved the above.

The Pot adjusts channel 9.

Then I have special function:

Adjust GV5 CH9

Seems I have to assign a switch to this, when what I actually want is this to be always on.

but ON doesn't seem to be an option.

Any clues?

I have always found the remember switch setting extremely useful. I now have a mix where I am using a pot to control the amount of throttle to elevator mix. I want this position remembered as it will likely be different on different models. When I switch to a model, I get the switch warning, and a s...

Re: Problem with Instant Trim

That was my recollection, which was why I wondered if it could be done differently. Perhaps an option in Companion TX when you compile firmware, do you use normal or crossed trims ?

Default would be normal, user would have to tick to get the function switched.

Re: Looking for idiots guide to update TX module in Taranis

Done that, with the new Open TX was really simple. Everything works.

Just wish I knew why upgrading the internal module failed and sent me down this path.

Thanks again to everyone for your help.

But I can understand why some people might want a system you just turn on and use.

Further update. I have 4 RX on the bench. D4R-II, X4R, X6R and X8R. All bought at different times, not sure of the age of them. I can bind to the D4R-II and X6R only. I reflashed the internal XTJ with XJT_LBT_build151223. The D4R-II still works but I can't bind to any of the X series RX. Do I need t...

I spoke to T9, he just hadn't got round to listing them on the site. 33.50 + 6.00 postage. Now ordered.
Wonder what firmware it will come with and if I will have to flash it to get D mode :)

Hi,

That gets me past that stage.

Now stuck on screen that says:

Flashing
Finding Device
______________

So it appears not only can Sport.exe not find device, neither can the Taranis itself !
