Let’s Check Out the “Model Set Up” screen (pg 2 of 13). We will be moving through lots of Taranis fields during the set up. In general we’ll be using the same key commands we’ve just demonstrated: +/- to navigate –> SP ENT to select/choose –> +/- to adjust value/browse –> SP ENT again to finish (occasionally we’ll need EXIT). We’ll provide additional button navigation help where needed.
You’ll find 12 fields to complete in the Model Set Up, pg 2 screen. Take advantage of the in-text definitions, links into the Glossary and detailed help in the posts that follow each field to see if you can get your settings to look like the class examples also described in the details. Compare your results with the screenshots at the end.

NOTE: If you followed the detailed instructions, you will have the file name of a model image in your Model Image field where I have a ‘- – -‘ because the screen grabs are from Companion which can’t insert an image name there. Your Taranis screens should look something like these when you’ve finished.
