Thanks for the quick reply.
So the resolution of each channel is the same, but the protocol itself is just sending fewer frames per second?

QX7S wireless (bluetooth) trainer mode has notchy output

I just discovered this this morning, but someone posted a nice YouTube video of the behavior here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kN-HY5viLrw For me, when using a pair of QX7S TXs in master/slave BT trainer mode, the servos on the model move in a jerky or notchy fashion. I don't see this when the m...

Re: Keeping two radios in sync w/ OpenTX 2.2.1 and Companion

Why not use the model backup and restore function from the model selection screen? It is much simpler: Create model backup, change sdcards, restore backup. Always in sync, even in the field! But this means backing up and restoring each model 1-by-1? My workflow is to mostly edit in Companion, but s...

Keeping two radios in sync w/ OpenTX 2.2.1 and Companion

A friend has two QX7 radios, and wants to be able to keep them in sync. Specifically, he wants the models on each radio to be the same. The idea is he has a backup radio in case something happens to one, or while he's flying model 1, he can give someone else his backup radio to go fly model 2, knowi...

Thanks for reply. I was doing it in Mix along with reversal as if you reverse the Inputs (which it allows) the trim does not reverse with it (as with Taranis).

The easiest way to do this in my opinion would be to use the trainer port of the TX and therefore wired PPM to a a TX module. As someone mentioned, most LRS add-ons like DragonLink or EzUHF do exactly this, but the "wired PPM" cable length is typically inches rather than feet. I've seen someone use ...

Yea, they're also available at HorusRC and AlotfHobbies. There's even a "three axis stick end" that gives you a pot and momentary button on the end of a gimble stick. No idea how they're wired up internally. I fired off an email to the folks at Aloft. I'll report back with their answer.

Sorry to be dense. When you say: "and select unit mAh", do you mean select "mAh" or "mA" (which one?) for the discovered "Curr" sensor? I'm asking because I can't see any way to select a unit to select for my calculated consumption sensor.

Re: RealFlight Interface module not reading channel 1 on 9XR

This probably won't help you directly, but it might help rule some things out. I'm running OpenTX 2.0 on a Taranis and have been using RealFlight Interface Edition successfully. So it is possible for RF7's dongle to recognize all 6 channels from an OpenTX device.
