Re: OpenTX - Nightly builds for pre-2.0 testing

Sounds like you have the timer set to Beeps instead of Voice.

That did it. I've never seen this documented anywhere, even for the 2940 firmware and earlier.

Re: OpenTX - Nightly builds for FrSky Taranis

Doesn't make sense to use + and - for aileron, since 99% of the time they are mirror images, so both servos have to rotate in the same direction.

Re: OpenTX - Nightly builds for FrSky Taranis

A quick answer to Scott: - The wizards have been disabled, and are in the middle of a full rewrite - I just fixed a small bug in companion that limited the length of bitmaps to 8 chars instead of 10 Obviously just my opinion - but I think it's better to release a completed 2.0 rather than a mostly ...

Re: OpenTX - Nightly builds for FrSky Taranis

'Side' is back in a dedicated branch. I didn't know whether it was still useful. Comments appreciated on this. Absolutely an essential function. Very important for feel, especially for F3A aircraft. We VERY seldom use symmetrical rates and expo on both sides of elevator, and many of us use unsymmet...

Re: OpenTX - Nightly builds for FrSky Taranis

What is the answer on the missing "stick sides" function?

I would suggest delaying 2.0 until all previously available features can be implemented. It will be viewed as going backwards, unless those features are available.

Re: OpenTX - Nightly builds for FrSky Taranis

Thanks, Kilrah. On the new Inputs menu item, where do I find the equivalent of "Side" in the old Sticks menu on the Taranis, or "Stick Side" shown in C9x? It allowed me to set separate rates and expos on each side of neutral. I find this particularly useful on elevator and I also use it on rudder to...

Is this the best place to ask questions about the Nightly Builds and Companion 1.99? Or where would you prefer we ask them? I loaded 1.99 on Windows 7 32 bit, successfully, and have questions about the new Inputs menu.

USB 3 vs. flashing the Taranis

There have been some reported issues with using USB 3 ports to flash the Taranis. In some cases the Zadig driver will correctly install, but C9x with fail to flash saying it couldn't find the Taranis. In my case, I found, by looking at the Device Manager in Windows, that the USB 3 port on my compute...

Re: Difference between between FAI Choice and FAI Mode?

I also tried setting it on the Taranis, got blocked from changing it, then read the eeprom to C9x, reset it, and reuploaded the eeprom. Worked fine.

You have to update, using C9x, to the very latest firmware (r2604) released just a couple of days ago to get the contrast adjustment. It's on the Radio Setup screen.

I don't know. I'm not the original poster on that forum. I think it is probably just a camera issue from left to right, but I don't know for sure.
