1.03 “OpenTX 2.0 & Beyond – Episode 3 – Examining the Throttle Mix (and Curves)” (October 2014) R.Scott Page

Tags: Mix, Curve, Throttle, Elevator, Exponential, Expo, Offset

In this 11:43 minute video Scott discusses the throttle mix to offset aircraft climbing with

increased speed. This is also the same approach to adding rudder movement

coordinated with ailerons or down elevator with flap extension. Curves are also

reviewed as an alternative to Offset in setting up the mix and for use in setting Expo.

1.1.04 Welcome to Taranis, Part 4: Mixing the Heart of Taranis

“Welcome to Taranis, Part 4: Mixing the Heart of Taranis” (March 2014) by Mark Harrison

This 5:49 minute video is the 4th in Mark’s series to get you up to speed with the Taranis as soon as possible.  Mark demonstrates how to prepare mixes using the transmitter rather than Companion 9X.  Using the TX or Companion 9X is completely your choice, however we recommend you become familiar with both methods.  Companion 9X in some setups is easier/quicker to use but unless you have it loaded on a laptop or Windows tablet and bring it to your flying field you will need to use the TX to make on the scene changes to your settings.  Using the TX you have the ability to immediately test your programming and even use the sticks/switches to assist with the programming.

  • Video Contents:
  • Mixer menu is model screen 6
    • Simplest case
    • Map a source to an output
    • E.g. map the rudder stick to channel 4
  • Weight
    • “Scales” the input
    • Negative weight acts as reverse
    • Often better to use “reverse” function on stick menu
  • Switch mixing
    • Specify a switch as an input
    • Top, middle, down maps to 100%, 0%, -100%
