Got the vario tuned in nicely now, number need to be right for the glider, my minimoa is heavy and comes down quite fast for a glider, I needed dead band of +.1 and -1.1 now it's normal glide is quiet and still shows lift and sink, tested in calmish air and simulated lift/sink by elev movements, be interesting to see what number I need for the blaster dlg, should be a lesser -number I think.
I used the neck strap this eve and it works well-much better then the one I had for the dx6i, balances nicely I can take my hands off the controls and they stay right where I want them.
Flew 1/2hr and had one rssi warning over head, voice worked all time and I have trimmed out the throttle elev mix for a nice steady climb out, though I did manage to add another mix by mistake, managed to add 100 rudder mix to elev and only noticed in air, that was interesting when I turned with rudder I can tell you!

How did that work for you - can you feel the indents stronger....in both directions? Or does it just slide like a Heli gimbal?

Thanks to all who replied to my question. My question was poorly worded, but my quandary was how to make better use of them by increasing their tactile feedback. Right now I can only feel center by moving in one direction, and I'm not complaining so much as exploring how to get a better feel for them. I must say that the sound (horn) idea is rather novel.

same here, I use a german forces ammunition box to store my LiPo batteries: http://www.ebay.com/itm/261145072508...84.m1423.l2649

They're gas tight and very tough. Much better than these LiPo bags.. For the taranis I got the Eneloop pack from T9

At first glance the shell looks like a copy of the 9303 but if you put them right next to each other there are some cosmetic differences. I wish they would have changed the speaker grill because it's cheesy looking. No reason they couldn't have replaced that with something better looking.

I've received a Taranis from Hobbyking. It arrived very quickly (to Hawaii) in excellent condition. It was very simple to change from Mode1 to Mode2. It did not ship with a battery charger (12v. .5a. I believe), but I had a 12v. 2a. laying around and it works. The Nimh gets warm but not hot. Could this charger's amperage hurt the Taranis's charging circuitry or the battery?

In the ANALOG INPUTS screen, the sticks reliably return to 0. I assume this is the screen where others have noticed problems with stick centering?

A radio control car enthusiast walks into a bar with a monkey sitting on his head. The bartender takes a look at the two and finally he asks "wherever did you get that from?" to which the monkey replies "it started off as a boil on my ass yesterday"

It's used in flybarless helicopters and with flight stabilizers on planes as well. Basically any time you need to get a lot of servo channels from the receiver into some box that actually controls the servos.

If you have a choice between sbus and CPPM use sbus. They do the same thing but sbus supports more channels has a higher framerate and is digital.

I know they bought from another vendor, but that vendor was obviously copying the JR transmitter. As did the "designer" of the 9X whomever that was.

Close enough that the 9X and the 9303 can swap battery covers. And it has been said on here that the 9X cover fits the Taranis a bit better than the stock one

Little details like the speaker grill don't bother me, more important is the ergonomics and build quality, which IMO are excellent on the 9303.

When I see images of the Horus posted I know 100% I won't be buying one. It is a tray radio. And, not that it matters, like all tray radios it is ugly

Guys be careful about storing lipos in ammo boxes. If you store them in an airtight steel box you have a potential bomb. Take the rubber seal out of the ammo box. I use a small cash box type steel tool box to hold mine. Many electronic devices use lipos today and nobody seems to exercise extra care with these devices. Remember most hobby shops just leave them in the cases or on the shelves. It's like ammo not particularly dangerous until you load them up.

Arguably the best system since it is somewhat analog in nature. Of course everyone seems to be satisfied with MP3 compressed crap played through cheap ear buds, so it pretty much died.

Doesn't mean that audiophiles aren't objectively crazy and essentially immune to things like logic and scientific evidence.

Note I specifically said compressed MP3.
MP3 compression is lossy, merely approximates the original sound.. Similar algorithms to JPEG compression.
Start to compress a picture of the sky or a field of grass and you can see the sort of thing that it does to audio, turning it all mushy.

CD quality is vastly superior to MP3, no data compression at all, in fact the data is expanded to add redundancy and error recovery.

But back to Taranis.....
