2.2.11 FrSky TARANIS Radio – Adding a 6 position switch (S3) and setup for APM/PixHawk by Painless360 June 2015 (#13 of 13)

[NOTE THE LINK IS NOT THE NORMAL YOUTUBE SHARE LINK. YOUTUBE REPORTS THIS AS AN UNLISTED VIDEO – WHATEVER THAT MEANS.
In this video he adds a 6 position switch to the top of the radio, installing it as S3, calibrates it then sets it up using a curve to control the six flight modes on an APM or PixHawk flight controller in Mission Planner. Adding the 6 position switch to S3 is only available on the TARANIS Plus model – if you have a standard Taranis then you need to replace S1 or S2.

The magic numbers for the 6 position curve you need to create and assign to the control using S3 are: -90%, -40%, -20%, 10%, 40%, 80%
