Re: Upgrade a new Taranis X9D? Please explain reasons.

In the past FrSky has taken a copy of the source for OpenTx and made a version that the OpenTx developers did not consider ready for release made some changes and shipped it with new transmitters. They did not provide any release notes or even the exact date that they took the source. This made it s...

Click on the File tab then Save As in the drop down menu. then get pointed to a Folder and add a name to save it with.

Re: Mixing elevator to left and right aileron

|x|is the absolute value of the source, Ail.
So basically no matter which way you move ail, you get a positive value.
It acts likes a 'curve' of 3 values, y = +100, 0, +100.

Re: Mixing elevator to left and right aileron

Even if you want to do all programming on your Tx, using Companion with its simulator to see if what you think needs to be done has the correct effect is easier for many. Since it only costs a little time to download and install, I suggest trying it. And what Jaao said is one way of doing it. Anothe...

Re: OpenTx memory value special function

The replace Mix line takes 100% of the channel that is controlled by the throttle stick at the TIME you put SWy up.
So that channel is held at the value until you put the switch down.
Then the channel will jump to where the stick is presently positioned.

Re: Radio and model duplication help!

First you do not have to upgrade if both transmitters are on the same firmware. Companion for 2.1.x is available at https://www.open-tx.org/2016/09/15/opentx-2.1.9 But if one tx is old and one is new, they may not be on the same firmware. You must confirm that they are both at the same level of firm...

Re: Radio and model duplication help!

The first thing to get in your mind is that the transmitters calibration data is stored in the .otx file that contains all the models on each transmitter. So you cannot just read the models form one tx into Companion and write it out to a second transmitter and have a working second tx. I'll assume ...

Re: Radio and model duplication help!

You can not duplicate all settings if you include Calibration as a 'setting'. It is not possible for 1 transmitter(tx) to be a duplicate of another in that the RF modules, which are not part of OpenTx, have distinct ids that make them unique. So to switch from one tx to control a model the other tx ...

Yes the firmware upgrade is very doable. I have a very early X9D and have it running 2.2.2. What exactly is the problem? If it is running the lua script, I think you need to upgrade to 2.2.2, but have never tried. But for just sending outputs to control the S6R, I think you could do that with 2.1.9....

Re: X9D Firmware

Your receivers must match the RF module of your X9D, EU or Rest Of World (ROW). But the firmware in OpenTx does not care whether it is Eu or ROW. The RF module does not change with OpenTx firmware changes. My understanding is using ROW OpenTx firmware allows you to use D8 receivers. EU firmware may ...
