Figured we should have a thread about this radio for tips and tricks.

Especially since i found this yesterday and am in the process of trying it. The logic takes a minute to follow but makes sense.

Full thread for 6 flight modes on the taranis From CNut on the openpilot forum

I've got a couple of things to contribute! First, a custom setup I'm using for my multirotor to disarm the board. Why would I need this? The new Steveis firmware allows a setting where the motors run when armed, which is great for doing aerobatics since even if you pull the stick all the way back the motors won't shut off.

That also rendered my "throttle hold" switch useless though, since you need both zero throttle AND full left rudder for a second to disarm the board. No worries though, that is pretty easy to do with the Taranis! :thumbup:

I've attached an image showing the setup in the software, and also a picture of the new "Stormtrooper" look courtesy of some super glossy and (hopefully super durable) white appliance epoxy paint. 8-)

All I see is a robot face speaking to me. ;)

That white looks much better than the original gray.

I am about to order one, any advice on what to order with it? I plan on getting extra faceplate and stickers and screen cover. Anything else? I also want some telemetry modules but looks like none of the, are in stock.

Any RXS you can get your hands on. I'm really liking the dr4-ii with the $2 voltage sensor for my quads. And the smart port stuff is pretty slick. I don't really have any use for it but I put a vario on my fpv quad and is fun to pay with

That looks awesome Chris! What brand of paint did you use? Any clear?

Thanks Nick! It is Rustoleum Appliance Epoxy, no clear. It flows out and takes many days to reach full hardness, but it's very glossy and really durable since it's made for appliances. It's so glossy it almost feels "greasy" to the touch.

Color choices are limited to black, white, biscuit, almond, or stainless. I've only ever used the black and white:

I want to paint the Taranis that Max (my 6yo) uses, and still trying to figure out the best thing. I should bite the bullet and have someone airbrush a Captain America shield on it, but that seems pricey. Maybe I'll do white and see how he likes it.
