FrSKY Taranis – OpenTX – Guided Tour of the Process of Creating a Flaperon Mix

“FrSKY Taranis – OpenTX – Guided Tour of the Process of Creating a Flaperon Mix”
(Oct 31, 2013) by Scott Page

Tags: Flaperons, Flaps, NOT, Global Variable

Using Companion 9X to program Flaperons, down elevator mix, THR-ELE mix on a slider with curve, global variable on a switch.

Index of video topics:
00:00 – 01:15 Intro to Flaperons
01:15 – 02:40 Make left and right ailerons
02:40 – 03:14 Add in right flaperon
03:15 – 04:30 Simulate the right flaperon – making ailerons move in opposite direction
04:30 – 04:42 Copy right flap to create left flap and simulate
04:42 – 05:50 Setting the amount of flaps to allow for effective aileron control
05:50 – 06:48 Slowing down flap movement
06:48 – 06:57 Simulate slow flaperon movement
06:57 – 08:10 Mix for down elevator when flaps engaged
08:10 – 08:55 Putting Thr-Ele mix on a slider to allow in flight adjustment
08:55 – 10:35 Adjusting range of control on the slider using a curve
10:35 – 11:39 Using the Not command to ensure Thr-Ele only effective with flaps down
11:40 – 12:00 Setting slider ‘beep’ when it is centered
12:00 – 14:00 Setting pot ‘beep’ on center & use pot to control amount of flaps with a curve
14:00 – 14:45 Simulation
14:45 – 17:00 Using global variable on a switch
17:00 – 18:28 Using flight modes
18:29 – 20:15 Custom function playing track once or repeated & playing GV values
