Cannot connect Taranis X7S as Joystick to Windows 10

Post by MWEGra » Mon Jan 15, 2018 6:40 pm

Hello,

I recently got a Taranis X7S Transmitter and I want to connect it as Joystick to Windows 10 via OpenTX companion V2.2.1. I cannot manage to do so. It always connects as a mass storage device. Reading settings from transmitter and writing via companion works fine. What I did:

O Turn off HF Signal settings
O Put transmitter/model in slave mode
O Select USB mode to HID in companion

Is there anything else I have to do?

Thanks for any Reply!

Best Regards,
Mathias

Try setting USB mode to joystick on the radio itself.

Thank you for your answer! I can't find that setting directly in my Transmitter. Can you tell me where to find?

At the bottom of the first radio settings menu page.

Dear Kilrah,

thanks for your answer! My problem was that I had Companion version 2.2.1 installed on my Windows 10 PC, but firmware version 2.2.0 on the TX. That is why I could not find the USB-setting. After writing firmware 2.2.1 to my TX everything works fine!

Best Regards, Mathias
