Support/FAQ for Pro Templates
Last updated 27 April 2017
This page is for support of the pro templates.
There are no known issues affecting the latest templates in conjunction with the latest versions of OpenTx 2.1 and 2.2.
You can ignore these if using the latest templates and OpenTx builds.
Recommended OpenTx versions
All templates support the two 'branches' of OpenTx:
OpenTx 2.1 (stable)
For Taranis X9D/X9DP and X9E. The latest version is 2.1.9, this provides a rock solid platform for the templates.
OpenTx 2.2 (beta)
Version 2.2 adds support for the Horus and Q-X7, otherwise there is no significant extra functionality for sailplane flyers. Note that 2.2 is still in beta, and some builds are more stable than others:
- N369 (RC16) no problems reported with templates
- N368 (RC15) templates work well, but buggy model management
- N366 (RC14) is not recommended due to a bug.
If you find an issue, please email me with the following info:
- Template name & version, transmitter type, and OpenTx version
- Enough info to reproduce the problem
Frequently asked questions for pro templates
- Which version of OpenTx should I use?
- Recommended OpenTx versions are shown on the template pages, next to the download link. See also information above.
- Which transmitters are supported?
- The Taranis X9D, X9D Plus, X9E and Horus are supported by all current templates.
- Can I use my Q-X7 transmitter?
- Templates can be re-targetted to the Q-X7 transmitter, using Companion. However modification will be required to remove some features, as the Q-X7 does not offer any sliders and has fewer switches.
- Can I use my old Taranis setups with OpenTx 2.2?
- Older templates (those designed without explicit support for OpenTx 2.2) will run under OpenTx 2.2 after minor mods. The exception is E-Soar Plus version 2.0 which should not be used with OpenTx 2.2 due to a compatibility issue; this is fixed in E-Soar Plus 2.1
- CAL and motor arming gestures not working.
- A small number of users have reported out of tolerance stick units which do not provide constant end point values, this can break the motor arming and CAL gesture recognition on older templates. All current templates will handle this.
- How do I check for errors in my setup?
- If you think you may have made a data entry error, then use Companion's 'Compare models' tool to compare your working version with a known good version.
