Is there an option for a transmitter shutdown sound?

Yes, that is correct - is there an option for a shutdown sound?

No, I haven't considered such a sound. Given the radio is switching off, any such sound/mesage would either potentially get cut off part way through, or there would need to be a specific wait for it to complete before the final power off.

Just thinking about the shut down message:

"How dare you turn me off"

"I was just starting to enjoy things"

"That'll save any further embarrassment"

Could be fun really. :lol:

Yeah, it's just a fun thing.. And why not? ;) Is it not what model flying is about? Having fun?
If you don't want the shutdown message, delete the file.. I bet that most of us wouldn't delete it :) :D

See? ;)

And since I have a young son and nephew, I can't really do the "Amber voice Pack Conversion"...so...

And a shut down sound option would allow me to complete the setup:

One loop of course :D

So, we will need a "SHUTDOWN.wav" file. In the next test version, this will be played at power off.

That sounds really nice, but I forgot to say, no jokes please :) :P I need something to put on the ersky9x voice pack.. of course everyone can make their own now that we have a nice tool to generate voices.. The problem is that this is a system file, and one has to be created as default :)

I just put together "Shutting down goodbye" from that, sounded quite OK to me on the radio when I switched it off.

Thanks

I've put a 6 second timeout in. The radio will switch off either when the voice message finishes, or after 6 seconds.

I've just posted a test version of ersky9x with this in.

For the voice pack, I would say #4 in that group is perfect.

Is it possible to change the shutdown zzz emoticon to something useful like " Remember to disconnect battery from FPV goggles "?
Or even play a wav file announcing something similar when transmitter power button switched off.

OpenTX 2.2 allows you to put a "bye.wav" file in SOUNDS\lang\SYSTEM that is played on shutdown.
The graphic is not user-replaceable and would require modifying and recompiling the firmware.

Please don't post duplicates.
