Re: OpenTX 2.1 telemetry system preview

Have reflashed the board and tried various other things but it seems there is nothing being output to the Receiver. I wonder if anyone else in the forum is using 2.1.7, Flip32 and the D4r-ii combo? UPDATE - Happy to report SUCCESS! Part of the set up on the Naze/Flip 32 requires a CLI command to inv...

Re: OpenTX 2.1 telemetry system preview

I saw some comments on the net that Baseflight sometimes is better for certain setups than the Cleanflight software. The other thing I have not tried it to only use the green data wir...

Re: Help with Pixhawk 280 and EEPE request

I have the Open Tx 2.17 on my Taranis. I mentioned the D4R - ii because it can output PPM, not that I know too much about all of this at the moment as I just starting reading about multirotors and the electronics yesterday.

Re: Help - Trainer Switch actuates throttle

Thanks for the replies, will take a look tomorrow after some shut eye ;).

Think I probably failed to save the EEprom last time so maybe the channel order was mixed up as it did work when I set it up initially.
