Re: Compiling for Radiomaster TX16s

Compiled again this morning using your cmake options (openSUSE Leap 15.1) with no errors. Pasted my cmake output and versions below in case you want to compare. One big difference is I'm using gcc 7.5.0 Jim HP-Linux:~/frsky/opentx/git/opentx/build-test # cmake -DUSB_SERIAL=ON -DHELI=OFF -DTRANSLATIO...

Re: Compiling for Radiomaster TX16s

I am getting no errors compiling on openSUSE LEAP 15.2. I don't have the transmitter so don't know if the firmware works, but it compiles clean. Are you using the recommended version of gcc-arm-none-eabi? People seem to have problems if they don't use the recommended version. I think it's gcc-arm-no...

Re: New beta version of openXsensor (=openXvario)

Sounds good Mike. I'm still running a Taranis so haven't tried your receiver code yet but probably will if I upgrade to a Access transmitter. I'm using some of your other code though so thank you for all you do for the community.

Re: New beta version of openXsensor (=openXvario)

I hope this will be an option with default to old pin so as to not break compatibility with all the existing sensors and all the old drawings and information. I would hate to have to rewire a sensor just to make a program change (or try to remember to change my config file).

Re: Taranis X9D Bricked.

Try it powered off, it uses completely different methods powered on and powered off. Powered off uses the dfu loader burned into the processor and not openTX bootloader and can't be bricked by a bad load. It also reloads the openTX bootloader. Try a different cable too.

Re: Taranis X9D Bricked.

There is no difference in Companion between the X9D and the X9D+ but there is a difference in the firmware that it downloads for them. You tell it which you have under settings. I was questioning it because you said X9D bricked and not X9D Plus bricked. In any case since you have a Plus you download...

Re: Taranis X9D Bricked.

I'm confused. You use Companion to download the firmware and flash it to the radio. Which version of Companion did you use to download the firmware, and which version did you use to try to flash it (2.2.1 or 2.2.3). In any case did you perhaps download and flash the wrong version of the firmware (X9...

Re: Delete/remove models

You can do a factory reset if you want to start with a clean slate. Menu Long to enter Radio Settings, Page forward to the Version screen which should have a Factory Reset option.....Menu Long and then confirm. This will erase all models and reset all radio settings.

Re: Delete/remove models

Menu to get model list
+ or - to move to the model you want to delete
Enter long (hold enter) to get pop up menu with delete model as one of the entries.

You can not delete the active model, select a different model and make it active then move to the one you want to delete and Enter Long.
