I don't have a T16S, only a T16, which is supported. I'm not sure at the moment what the differences are, but it is likely that the version of erskyTx for the T16 will run. I can see there is an extra button, which won't do anything.
If you are prepared to try erskyTx, and let me know what doesn't work, I should be able to get it fully running.

I was wondering if anyone has been successful in flashing ErSkyTx to this transmitter. I have tried, as Mike suggested elsewhere using the July 2019 version and bootloader as well as the latest Test Version without success. Hopefully someone has done it and can share just how they did it, please. OpenTx is not user friendly.

Did flashing the radio just not work, or did you managed to flash the radio but the firmware didn't run properly?
What methods did you try to do the flashing?

I used the latest and the 2019 versions of eepsky to flash. It would not flash with the T16 firmware and the disk not mounted error appeared.Then I tried flashing the bootloader the radio would lockup and a hard reboot was necessary. Then in order for the radio and SD drives to be seen I had to flash the OpenTx bootloader back. Now all is good for OpenTx, if one can call that good. I have learned to use OpenTx and all its nuances but it is so much cumbersome than your ersky9x. Thanks BTW for all that you have done for us. I truly appreciate your genius.

Could you try the method where you copy the file to flash to the SD card then use the bootloader to flash it from there?

Ok, finally had time to try this. Flashing from the sd card resulted in the radio hanging at the "long press enter" to flash. So I tried flashing the erskyTx firmware from Companion. It flashed and when I turned it on I got a "STARTING" message briefly then a black screen with a hard reboot necessary to revive.I reflashed OpenTx and the radio is functioning in OpenTx again.

OK, I'll see if I can find out what the hardware differences are between the T16 and the TX16S.

I wish that I could afford to buy you a radio.

Hi Mike ...........

I reckon I can add my name to the very long list of grateful users of er9x and ersky9x ....

I too am extremely interested in the Radiomaster T16S ... as it has better roller ... antenna etc. than the Jumper.

But I will not buy it if I cannot flash erskyTX to it ...

Watching with very high interest ..........

Nigel
