I have spent a considerable amount of time creating the tools neccesary for the Taranis being useful and userfriendly, and getting the best out of it and it's OpenTX operating system. This was only possible by writing some custom add-ons,made possible by the LUA-interpreter being on board as of versions 2.0.x.

Those who say that OpenTX is perfect, and will suit everybodies needs, are at least ignoring the needs of the people NOT familiar with modern software technology , downloads, upgrades, firmwares, github, etc.

What I intend to do in this blog is to share my toolset, developed especially for F3K glider plane competition flying, and explain the hard lessons learned in using LUA and OpenTX to get it al done.

Enjoy reading, using and sharing, and I hope I can lower the treshold for using the Taranis for more than just controlling your plane, also for the less tech savvy people.

P.S. the attached zipfile contains the PRECOMPILED scripts for the F3K training program. They will work on OpenTX version 2.0.17, 2.0.19 and 2.1.8 on for the Taranis.

To install on 2.0:
  1. merge the script directory with your existing scripts directory (or create a new one in the root of the SD card).
  2. rename the scripts/lShems directory to the scripts/yourmodelname directory
To install on 2.1
  1. Just step 1 from above
  2. Select in your model settings for telemetry, custom telemetry page 1: F3K, F5J or logMenu

Using the LSHEMS EPEE, (get it here: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show......Continue Reading

Attached is a SCRIPT directory, which contains all the files for running the Setup Menu explained in the following pages. You can merge it with your existing SCRIPT directory, if you have loaded the EEPE from part 1. The files from Part 2 are not neccesary, all is included in this package.

REMARK: The files in this part are not updated anymore. The new versions are contained in the training script package.

Todo:
Update PDF manual switches page with Max remarks.
Update PDF manual with correction on snapflap mix
Update PDF manual with correction for flaps alarms (L22)

P.S. This part is informational. It is not neccesary to spent time reading this section if you are only intending to use the EEPE, menu and training scripts, and not adapt them.
P.P.S. I use the ZeroBrain LUA studio as LUA editor.
It is very powerful, and since most of the code is dynamically loaded, you can run the simulator, test a menu, return to the previous menu, adapt your code with the LUA editor, save it and test the menu again, without having to start the simulator again. Unless offcourse you produce syntax errors, in which case you have to restart the simulator.

Update:
  • lshems: initial release
  • lshems(2): small bug and cosmetics
    1. added down delay of 0.1 on mix 28, last line. When landing and keeping launch switch pulled for quick turnaround, after release of launch switch, flight mode would pass at normal flight mode before going into fast mode, causing flaps to be activated unwantedly for a fraction of a second.
    2. cosmetics on inputs: changed names to correctly reflect defaults
    3. defaults on inputs: changed launch switch to SH, companion simulator default
  • lshems(3): cosmetics
    1. cosmetics on outputs (servos): set to defaults
    2. cosmetics on geometry: set to
