Re: OpenTX 2.2 Documentation for the Taranis and Horus Transmitters

Great work. Well done. I've just skimmed through this as I was printing a copy and I've already found a few things that would have saved me lots of heartache whilst I was learning to program my X9D. I've just picked up an X12s so this will be invaluable as I get to grips with setting up the new radio.

Electromagnetic wheel brakes - proportional control

Hi all,

I have a set of Electromagnetic wheel brakes on the main gear of my F4 Phantom model.
Currently, I have them operating via LS on my X9D but they are either ON or OFF.

Is there a way to make them proportional? I was thinking some sort of curve?

Thanks in advance

Craig

Currently they are on a separate channel which is slaved to the elevon input but they are moving in both directions. any help would be apreci...

Re: Taranis Plus Haptic feedback not working?

I found something similar after I installed a haptic module in my X9D . You need to download the firmware with the HAPTIC function enabled. Go to the SETTINGS menu in Companion and ensure that you check the box for HAPTIC. You'll be given a prompt to say that you've not downloaded this before, accep...

Also that in the Phoenix Model Setup you have Trainer Mode set to Slave. I assume you do, because y...

Re: Using multi-position & Logical switches to select BGM

Thanks Davx
That has sorted the Sticky on SH and i can now turn on the music using that switch.


I'm still trying to work out the correct way to select the track via S1 and logic switches.

Re: Acessing sound files in Open Tx Companion

Never mind folks! Managed to figure it out. I hadn't told Companion where to find the required files.

I created a copy of my SD card in a folder on my PC and then set the "SD Structure Path" within the "settings" of Companion to look there for the files.

Is there a way to have some kind of audible alert once the flight timer has gone past zero?

Re: FrSky Taranis buzzing from speaker

I found that if you angle the antenna away from the casing or have it pointing 90 degrees to the right of the case, the buzzing stops.
The buzzing isn't really that much of a problem whilst flying to be honest

Hi folks, I'm new to Open Tx and was wondering if someone could clarify if the V8R7 is 7ch or 8ch? I have one and it clearly has 8ch ports but the website I bought it from describes it as 7ch. I'm pretty certain it has 8, but before I fit it to a model I'd like to be doubly sure. I'm flying with a T...
