Our Class works through the Model Setting menu with the Taranis to configure a basic 5-channel airplane. The emphasis is on learning to use the logic of OpenTX to achieve a predictable outcome that is easy to troubleshoot. Taranis screens that are not essential are briefly described while the essential screens are explored in depth. The following outline describes the order of our class development:
Basic Airplane Introduction — describes the purpose and process of the class, button navigation, and includes a link to assumptions used in the class with help for pre-work
Start Up Warnings, Main Screens, and Model Selection (1/13) — works through the power-ON throttle and switch warnings, the four main screens, and defines all the fields in the Model Selection screen (1/13)
Model Set Up (2/13) — describes use of all 12 fields in this screen
Servos (7/13) — completes the configuration of the basic airplane set up. Constructs the equation that determines control surface deflections.
What Goes Where — summarizes a process for deciding how to exploit the command chain in a basic airplane set up
Wrap Up — stepwise instructions for final physical set up of the basic airplane, and a little something extra.
