    The Frsky X9E Thread

    Come on then, who's got their X9e? First impressions are very good in terms of the hardware. The gimbals feel really nice with a fairly strong return to centre. New sliders are good. I'm glad they've gone for proper trims not joy pad rubbish. The side cheeks are removable. The rotary wheel is nice and the interface lacks the lag and general slowness of the original taranis. It's much sharper. The wheel is a massive improvement. Amazing value for money. If only opentx would sort out the flight modes, then we we would be living the dream! Please do a flight mode trim screen, like Jeti! The speaker / voice is good btw. I've always been a handheld flier, but the tx is really comfy used finger/thumb with the cheeks, so i might give that a try.

    Taranis EU LBT vs NON EU TX's

    I recently purchased a FrSky RX4R reciever, could not get it to bind to my Taranis. I hope my findings may help others who have the same problem. The RX4R was EU LBT firmware, so as my Taranis was NON UK OpenTX. I was not too surprised. Re-flashed my Taranis to EU LBT, expecting that to solve the problem, but no, would still not bind. After much searching online, I found that it was the XLT module that needed flashing , not the transmitter. Flashed the internal XLT module to EU LBT and it now binds. Following some experimentation I find that I could use NON EU OpenTX provided the Internal module was EU LBT. The problem is that I have some old TX's that cannot be flashed to EU LBT, I would have to flash any new TX's to non EU firmware, what a pain. If you have old TX's that can be flashed, that is the way to got. The alternative (which is what I am doing) is to add an external FrSky external module using EU lbt, with NON EU firmware on the internal module. Hopefully I will then be able to use any vintage of FRSky TX. ---- HOPEFULLY
  3. I've just posted a couple of major updates of my F3F Setup for the Taranis. Enhancements: New 'Pump' mode Quicker setup Pump mode is something I've been thinking about for a while, as OpenTx permits a simple pilot-oriented UI, so why not??! Also, the setup procedure has been speeded up via several usability improvements and improved documentation. For the X9D, X9DP and X9E, and OpenTx 2.1.8+ Background info and download links in blog post.
  4. I have recently been getting low signal alarms whilst flying my willow II between 100-150 metre range at white sheet. I'm now considering selling all my rx's dumping the radio in the bin & jumping ship. But what manufacturer do I go. My models are varied from an electric carbon Z cub to my willow ll f3f to a radian pro weasel trek etc etc & soon to be two scale model gliders an ASW 20 at 1.35 scale & a pic 20 at one quarter scale.
  5. Some details of a snapflap system which I've been using on my Taranis X9D for a couple of years. It allows in-flight adjustment of: snapflap volume snapflap expo stick deflection at which snapflap starts (deadband) stick deflection at which max snapflap is reached The idea was (a) to explore the effect of each parameter on turn response and (b) to speed up the trimming process. The system uses a Lua mixer script running under OpenTx. The script replaces elevator as input to the snapflap mix. More info on my blog

    NXT, build vario question

    Quick question guys. I'm building my Stream NXT & I'm fitting a taranis vario to it which I'm decaseing & de pinning & hard wireing. What I need to know incase I ever decide to compete in competition is. Does the vario need to be taken out or is it enough to prove to the CD that it's been unplugged. Martin
  7. As the title says. There is so much info out there I'm really confused on the best direction to proceed - where to start and move on. I have succeeded in charging the battery and calibrating controls I have the following: Companion9XTaranis_Quick_Start_Guide.pdff3f 300 user guide.pdfhttp://open-txu.org/home/undergraduate-courses/fund-of-opentx/checking-out-taranis/http://openrcforums.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=93https://docs.google.com/document/d/1qlh09LzxtpPt7j_aqG8yiOu2yoYMzP9XA-PJA81rDJQ/edit?pli=1http://openrcforums.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=97&sid=c0f83c2d6997a20aed6fa14ecac18eb9My need is for basic glider and plank (power model) setups. I have looked at Mike S's F3F setup and this is far too complex for me to start with, I don't know half of what it is doing So a little simple guidance would be much appreciated to save me hours (possibly) going back and forth, tearing out what's left of me hair, trying to force this into my brain....... A pointer to a fairly simple Glider eeepe (?) which I can work with and learn from would be great. Looking at the opentxu course soon brings me to Zadig. Do I really need to get involved with this? Don't consider myself to be a "developer" Thanks for help. Jerry

    Taranis Throttle Switch Problem

    I'm stuck trying to set up an isolating switch for a glider throttle on my Taranis (first generation with original software. I'm inputting directly into the tx. This is my first brush with custom switches). Throttle is on the left hand slider and I'd previously set up SwitchF as a simple throttle-cut. This worked fine but for extra safety I'd like to force closing the throttle before the switch will rearm it. To do this, I'm trying to apply Mike Shellim's 'sticky throttle recipe'. I've set up two custom switches trying to follow Mike's guidance: CS1 a<x LS -95 CS2 OR CS1 CS2 SFI^ [up arrow] Opening the throttle switches off CS1 as I'd expect. But it also switches off CS2 - so the throttle won't open even when the arming SwitchF is on. I'm probably just doing something stupid but would appreciate any help, please. Nick Jackson
  9. ... referring of course to the optional Lua interpreter extension for OpenTx / Taranis. For those who are not familiar with Lua, it's a procedural programming language ("do this first, then do that... but only if so and so..."). It can be used to do all kinds of interesting stuff which you can't do with the base firmware. Lua is a game changer. There are already some pretty cool applications doing the rounds, such as screens which display post flight telemetry analysis on DLGs, intelligent battery alarms which use telemetry to calculate the number of cells, custom screens for GPS data etc. My own humble first attempt is an enhanced snapflap mix - it enables the pilot to trim both the deadband (i.e. delay) and the snapflap volume using two controls on the Tx. Genuinely useful for F3F. The script itself is only a few lines. Maybe of academic interest to those who don't have OpenTx, but I've written up some background to getting up and running here for those who want a glimpse at the kind of things we might see more of in the future: Getting up to speed with Lua http://rc-soar.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/getting-up-to-speed-with-lua.html Enhanced snapflap mix http://rc-soar.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/enhanced-snapflap-mix-using-lua.html
  10. As in the title and for us less codified mortals Having taken 2 model to my field Sunday, 1 on 35, 1 on 2.4 and forgotten my 2.4 module (again) and had frequency clash at the midlands F3F with only 2 of us on 35MHz it is seriously time for me to convert all to 2.4. I don't think wading through the 65 pages of the ".... ultimate glider radio" thread is going to help me much. So what do users recon to this Tx? Is it: comfortable and pleasant to use? reliable? easy to set up (without getting into the OpenTx that is)? can it be used with FrSky receivers? - e.g . V8FR-II or V8R4-II
