I'm sure folk are watchong, Martian. I certainly am after doing the Stearman and having just finished the Das Liddle Stik. Both from Aerofred.

How are you doing with the cyano sensitivity?

As long as it's not too noisy or smelly I think folk could be persuaded.

Yes you can connect Taranis and make a backup from that.

If you want to update Taranis, you'll have to change the settings in companion to set it up for your exact version of Taranis.

You can set up different profiles. Say one for Horus and one for Taranis.

At this point you need to say no to that, go into settings and chose your particular options.
At least chose X10 and English as the language.
Whatever you chose now, will be the options used when you download the firmware for the radio.

If you can bind a Rx to the Tx now then you won't have to update any receivers after installing OpenTx.

The instructions for flashing OpenTx to an X10 are ***Here***

You need the "How-To Horus X10 X10S Flashing instructions".

Pick the most recent dated version.

Ok I'll fire up a PC so I can post a link to it.

To put OpenTx on a Horus it's imperative that you follow the instruction sheet.
21/07/2018 11:41:53
Yes that's the one.
21/07/2018 11:20:35
Don't worry Trebor, take it step by step. Do you have the installing opentx instructions from the FrSky website?
21/07/2018 10:47:54
Overlapping indeed.

In contrast, since getting Horus, I hardly ever use companion. The big colour screen is that good and I like choosing a switch or stick simply by toggling it.

Companion is still used, but just for model backups, transfers between transmitters and updates.

You'll need a micro SD card. (That's the tiny little version)

It's probably worth getting an adapter so you can plug it directly into the PC

FAT32 is just a choice you make when you format it.
21/07/2018 10:12:19
Yes you'll be able to transfer models.

Remember though that the action of copying from Tx to PC or PC to Tx copies models AND settings. You don't want to copy settings between transmitters (stick calibrations etc) so must not, for example, send a Taranis file to a Horus.

I'd go for 2.2.1 that's the latest full release and it includes support for the X10.

2.2.2 appears to be at it final "Release Candidate" stage and the developers are asking for lots of people to test it and feed back any issues.

You should probably be prepared to upgrade to 2.2.2 once it's released fully but that is very straightforward once you're on OpenTx anyway.

No you can't.

What you need to do is stop guessing and do exactly what the instructions say.
That's why they were written and you can get in a real mess if you don't

Sorry if I sound like a broken record, I won't mention it again but you're on your own if you try to make it up as you go along.

For some reason the FrSky hardware and Microsoft don't play perfectly together. You'll find that every now and again, with a Windows update, Microsoft will think it knows better and will pick the wrong driver again. So when you have these symptoms again, just go through the Zadig process again. As detailed in that instruction sheet.
18/07/2018 20:35:56
Yes I think it's because you haven't done as I suggested above.

Yep Flashing instruction paragraph 7 tells you all about Zadig.

Before this it hasn't told you to connect Tx to PC. So you're jumping the gun.

It's important to follow the instructions.
18/07/2018 16:58:58
Ok is there a section in the upgrade document covering using Zadig to replace the usb driver?
(Careful with Zadig, do NOT use it with TX connected to PC while switched on)
18/07/2018 12:00:14
I have a 16Gb micro SD in mine. Probably overkill on size. PS mine is an X12 but I'm assuming X10 will be the same.

Yes you can use the same version of companion for both radios. You just set up a profile for each.

Obviously you have to be careful to use the right backup file for the right radio etc, but that's not difficult.
18/07/2018 09:31:00
No it doesn't mean that at all. Using the lap top is just an option. All the pages you see in Companion on the laptop, are also there on the Tx.

When I used a Taranis I tended to do most things on the PC then transfer it to the Tx simply because it was easier with a big screen and a mouse etc. But with the Horus, I hardly ever use the PC at all. I do all my model setup directly on the Tx because the big colour screen and button layout works so well.
