Re: Help with eepe file please

I think I found the problem for those having similar challenges - I had mixed the down Elevator with Thr and Flaps in the Inputs page. When I deleted those mixes in the Inputs page and set them up in the Mix page, all went well.

Hope that helps some one else,

Re: Can we copy Special Functions in Companion?

Sweet!
Thank you all very much,
Even copying and pasting one function at a time is much quicker than setting each line up from scratch.

Thanks,

Can we copy Special Functions in Companion?

Hi All, I searched quite a bit but was not able to find any info on this. In Companion I assigned several voice tracks and other tasks to numerous switches under the Special Functions tab. Since many models will use a lot of similar switch functions, it would be a big time saver to set up one templa...

Re: Taranis Plus 2.1 firmware upgrade fail - any thoughts?

Thank you Kilrah,

I did as you described.
I thought all was good until I saw Tx still shows 2.0.20 after restarting.
Below are photos of each step I did. I'm sure I'm pulling from the wrong file somehow.
Can anyone see my mistake?

Thanks All,

Sorry to offend, KH. It's just very frustrating when you think you're following the steps properly and can't get the TX to connect so you can use it.

HiGuys, The problem began when using a DMS module - the aileron and elevator channels are swapped at the receiver servo plugs.

Tx vibrates when rudder stick comes back to center

Hi All,

I'm new to the Taranis Plus (v2.0.17). I haven't flown a plane with it yet. I'm practicing and learning how to set up programming. Why does the Tx vibrate every time the rudder stick comes back to center position? Other stick movements don't do this.
How do I stop this?

Thanks,

Doc
