Re: Model Artwork for Taranis

“Tarani” is better than “Taranis’s”, which is a singular possessive, as in “His Taranis’s screen was broken, so he couldn’t see the images at all.”
You could say “He had two Taranis transmitters.”

Re: Multiple antenas

It depends which is turned on for a given model. The point is just don’t ever disconnect either antenna if there’s any possibility that that RF unit might be turned on. In other words, the only time the external module’s antenna should be disconnected is when the module is removed, and the internal ...

Re: Multiple antenas

Never run a transmitter or module with the antenna disconnected! It will damage the output transistor.

Model Artwork for Taranis

The X9D for example has a significantly wider screen and higher resolution than the QX7. So the former can display these images while the latter can’t.

Opinion seems to differ on the plural of “Taranis”. :)

Re: ERSKY9X Coding

As I understand it, subtrims are not subject to Flight Mode. So you could transfer any FM0 trims to subtrim. But then the other FM trims would need to be reset.

I’ll have to think a bit about the implications of the new Instant Trim setup.

Definitely something for the manual

Re: Question on switches

Exclamation mark before switch name means “not”. So “!SA(up)” means either SA- or SA(down).

It’s not up so it must be either of the other two positions.

ERSKY9X Coding

Thinking a bit more, it seems to me now that the main risk is indeed that the pilot might forget (or just not know) that Instant Trim is live.

On the other hand, I still can’t imagine a realistic scenario in which more than 25% correction (subtrim) would be needed via IT.

As implemented now, pressing the switch again will not restore the original setting. If the sticks are centred, it will do nothing. The way Instant Trim works is for the pilot to hold the stick(s) off centre (so as to maintain level flight), press/flip the IT switch, and release the stick. This appl...

So what do you think about the 100% subtrim capability of Instant trim? Is it OK? Should it be restricted to 25% like trim?

I’m starting to think don’t fix if it ain’t broke.

Not sure how this got off track. I thought it was clear that what we talking about was how Instant Trim should be implemented.

Re: ERSKY9X Coding

I had never thought of Instant Trim as being a way to give huge amounts of correction, just a quick way to apply relatively modest ones — certainly less than 25%. That’s the way I’ve always used it, and my concern was that having the ability to use up to 100% subtrim introduced the possibility of in...

Thanks Daedalus. I fully agree to your Bottom line. But two last questions: 1) If I change the channel order in the "Radio Setup", "Rx channel order", this has no effect on mapping the sticks to the receiver inputs. With this experience I ask myself what this parameter finally works on (if changes ...

irange irx4plus channel order

The module’s automatic translation of channel order from AETR to the Spektrum order of TAER is a major simplification for anyone who uses other protocols, as it means all protocols can use a standard order of AETR and the transmitter firmware can have that as its default order. On the other hand, if...

ERSkyTX on the new Taranis X9-Lite - first flights. Three flights on my Durafly Tundra with the new radio. I’m liking the feel of the radio - compact with very decent sticks. Lighter and more comfortable than the QX7. Using RX6R with ACCESS firmware. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190527/0b41004...

Re: IDLE switch for winches

Just for information. The switch you are talking about has nothing to do with idle. It’s usually simply referred to as the “three-position switch”. The three positions are called ID0, ID1, ID2. Or when the switch is used to control Flight Mode they are called N, 1, 2. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

Plugs certainly were made for 2v, but we’re talking quite a few years ago.

Plugs are (or were) made specifically for 2.0v lead acid cells, 1.5v carbon-zinc cells (such as the big old #6 cells), and 1.2v NiCd (not in those days NiMH) cells. Most of the ones available today are designed for 1.2v. I would expect that running them on 1.5v constantly would shorten their life. B...
