Re: New to openXsensor - GPS and smartport question

All of your questions are answered in 'oXs_config_description.h'. This is a text file for documentation. KH, One more silly question if I may, there are quite a number of files in the oSx folder and generally I would only open and edit the file oXs_config_basic.h and/or oXs_config_advanced.h; and p...

Horus X12S radio sim in Companion

Hi guys, can't seem to find any previously answered question of how to get the small red joystick on the bottom left of the radio simulator to work in Companion 2.3 - any ideas?
This would simulate input for JXs and JYs
(I've tried using the mouse to move left/right, up/down but no joy)

Re: Voice on 9xtreme

Thanks Mike,

I'll give this a go. For some reason i can't seem to be able to get simple alarms like the radio inactive alarm to work - must have changed a setting somewhere inadvertently.

Any chance that amending models in Eepesky on a mac could be bringing in an issue?
