Lua Script for Frsky Neuron ESCs

Frsky says that their Neuron ESCs can be programmed via Lua script but I've been unable to find one. Does anyone know of one for Taranis?

Replace my early X9D with an X9D+ or Horus X10?

I'm replacing my reliable but beat up early X9D. I'm trying to decide whether to get a new X9D+ or a new X10. I'd like to hear from those who made the jump to the X10. How do you feel about it today? Was it worth the extra money?

Thanks!

The USB does not charge the battery! Unwrap your charger and use it.

Re: Control 2 servos via 1 channel for continuous rotation?

Looking at the servo he wants to use, the servo can be programmed in terms of direction so one channel and a Y connector seems to be all that's required.

You can map the throttle to two channels in opposite directions.

Re: X9D+ No Longer Logging Telemetry

You RTC should not reset if the battery is good and making good contact in the holder. Even with a dead RTC battery mine never had other issues and judging by the last good log file it had been dead for a couple months.

Re: SP-FLVS causing radio interference?

I appearantly flew for six weeks trouble free with a dead RTC battery.

I'll have to come up with a more controlled scenario for testing and documenting any effect of using the sensor.

SP-FLVS causing radio interference?

I added a SP-FLVS lipo sensor to a plane and got several "RSSI Low" and "RSSI Critical" warnings during a flight. Since this plane has been flying for two years without problems and the only thing that changed was the addition of SP-FLVS I removed it and flew it again with no problems. Checking the ...

Have you downloaded Companion for the Taranis? It has a simulator that will show servo motions and rates. Very useful for learning how things work on the Taranis.

Re: EBike discussions

I'd worry about torque with a typical outrunner. I suggest you look into the motor in the hub wheels. I have one and it's very nice and quiet. When the lead acid batteries go I was thinking about building a new pack from A123 cells. They are much more robust than lipos and no fire hazard. You could ...

Re: Correctly announce slider value

I had a similar problem. I was using GV's to set optimal mixes for early shake down flights (while flying.) I really only wanted the final readings. I made it announce every time the GV changed and then again 5 seconds later.

Re: Receiver numbers when when two modules used.

There are separate but setting one automatically sets the other to the same number, at least in OpenTx 2.0.15. I've never been able to set them to different numbers in the transmitter. You can set them to unique numbers in Companion.

Receiver numbers when two modules used.

I built a camera module that can be moved from plane to plane. It's build around a DSM2 receiver for the pan and tilt. I use a DSM2 hack module in my Taranis to run the camera and the internal XJT module for the plane's controls. The trouble is that the receiver numbers have to match when you set up...

You haven't set up telemetry on the "telemetria" page. You won't get the telemetry until you tell the Tx what the the signals it's receiving from the X8R are for.

Re: "Official" upgrade for Taranis to Plus?

The Plus has haptic and a better LCD display. It also comes with the larger battery and better sliders that recent Taranii have. It's certainly easier to just buy a new Taranis plus if you want those features. I'm not sure the main board and LCD are even available as parts yet.
