|Thread: Power Safe for any receiver|
Well, the fact it was a link to Nexus Models was a bit of a hint
They also make one for the Futaba 7008 rx. Afaik they were only ever made for certain Futaba Rx which were giving people problems with their signal output voltage, but if you remove the signal boosting bit of the electronics then the general concept of keeping the servo currents outside of the rx is valid. A simpler way is to just plug a second battery into an unused servo socket or Y lead a second battery into a used servo socket, at the opposite end to the battery socket, then the current demand is shared over two plugs and spread over two ends of the pcb tracks.
If you prefer to isolate the two batteries from each other, use a battery backer such as Jeti V cable
or posher still with magnetic switch **LINK**

|Thread: Wren 80|
Best thing to do is to ask Wren as they will know the answer! In the meantime, the red two stroke Carlube oil that Wren suggests should be fine, mine run on it and don't fail to start immediately after as much as an 8 month break while I fly other jets. What failure message is the data terminal giving when the start fails? Could it be a tired or cold lipo that isn't delivering until it has warmed up a bit as current is being drawn from it? Gas or kero start?

erfolg, why not download the PC software and see first hand how it is structured
Several model templates are built in to the software, e.g. 4 channel, v-tails, elevons, helis etc. On the PC software there is even a new model wizard, click for how many aileron and flap servos etc and it does all the basic work for you
I have had a Taranis from day 1, first batch.
It’s not difficult, just different to the typical Japanese master-slave mixing method.
It’s not complex to do the normal things, but it is capable of great complexity if you want it to.
You don’t need to program it on PC but you can if you want to. I do like doing it on PC but do it on the Tx so I know where to go in the Tx menus when I want to adjust something at the flying field.
Nor is it revolutionary! There’s a good reason the instruction manual says that Multiplex users will feel at home straight away, this is how Multiplex Profi Tx have been programmed for decades!
The hardest thing is not learning to program Taranis/OpenTx, the hardest thing is stopping yourself from trying to program it the Japanese way. Many users keep trying to do the master-slave thing, and it just won’t work.
There is no master control on any channel, and no slave mixed to it. There is no elevator channel, no aileron channel etc.
You look at a surface on your model and ask “What controls do I want to influence that surface?” Then you input all those controls onto that servo (channel). All are equal. There is no master, no slave. You can vary each input’s direction, travel, have them switchable etc. For example you look at an elevator and decide you want it to be controlled by elevator stick, flap switch, rudder stick (for knife edge) and so on. Then you just add a line for each of them to the elevator servo, and set the travels and switches etc as you desire.
