Access Protocol - HowTo?

I've seen that FrSky have recently launched this new protocol. It looks good to me. I have a QX7 running OpenTx 2.1. and a bunch of various FrSky Rx's. I'm trying to find a HowTo that describes how I can take advantage of the new protocol. Any links greatly appreciated.

A Spectrum radio is used in the vid and it recommends using "end points" the adjust the gain. In OpenTX I can assign a 3 POS switch just the same as in the vid but I'm t...

Re: "Smart" Throttle Cut?

If you look at the "How To" section of my OpenTX documents in this section of the forum, you will find there is a smart throttle cut/arming routine which is very simple, but almost foolproof. Not only does it require the throttle to be at zero, but the switch has to be activated at between 3 and 5 ...

Re: "Smart" Throttle Cut?

The first line of your L1 text does not match the input lines for Companion 2.2.1

The line begins with the name L01, not L1. After that the inputs do not match. Attached is a screen shot of the Logical input screen from Companion 2.2.1 in QX7 profile.

Re: "Smart" Throttle Cut?

Three months on and I'm still struggling with this conundrum. Apparently, OpenTx 2.2.X doesn't implement the parameters per the screen shots I previously posted from the Painless360 vid. And no-one appears to have an answer for this in 2.2.X

Quite frustrating :evil:

I've previously been using Ersky9X on my Taranis. There is a menu screen Safety Switches where it's an easy entry to enable a throttle cut that not only disables the throttle but also won't allow it to arm unless the THR stick is in the fully down position. A great safety feature. I'm trying OpenTx ...

Then you probably need to set the lower limit a bit higher, just at the point where the engine stops, with the trim all down?
This ones a petrol installation with a CDI kill switch on the Tx. Is my thinking about weight and offset looking correct?

Re: Limiting Servo Movement?

Do you need such high idle setting?? :o
Getting the servo arm in this position is at the point where the barrel in the carb is just starting to open i.e. tick over.
