It took me over two decades to like beer, guess it will be about the same for a tray? ( and I still can't stand smart phones,,,,,,,,,yet, mostly the price/m) LOL Thanks for your reply and all your OpenTx help, thanks Scott and Wayne for your support! ,bummer the 5pm deal went down as did, spent 90+ minutes with my wore out F5 key and finger, figured Wayne was trying to fix the server on the phone (so I respected NOT to call), but I guess he was on the phone taking orders,,,, I will get my Tarani soon No worries, Wayne is a good guy! Fly ON!

Hmmm, been pinching the sticks since 1972,,,,does the neck strap not allow this? Thanks!

Of course not. Like Scott said, it's an acquired taste. I can fly just fine without one...

Custom Splash Screens


I found Custom Splash Screens are quite a bit more tricky than model icons. They are 212 pixels x 64 pixels. I really have not gotten the hand of them yet, but wanted to upload my first in honor of the outfit that has done so much to help many of us with this hobby.

To change the splash screen in C9x you choose "customize my Tx" in the Burn drop down menu. Then click on "load firmware" in the little window that pops up. and choose the most recent firmware you've downloaded. Then you choose "load image" and choose the image file. Save the firmware (use different name). With the Transmitter off -- plug into the USB and, using C9x, click on the "Write Flash Memory" -- choose the modified version of the firmware.. and you've changed your Splash Screen.

Correction


Sott, the info in that post about the D6 receiver is incorrect. I have subsequently found the D6 accepts the variation voltage on the A2 pin. How it appears depends on the display used however. The DHT-U displays just a voltage which goes up and down with variation. Pretty useless as a display but what you do is set voltage alarms to trigger so you get one sound for rising and another for sinking. Works perfectly as a thermal alert.

My FLD-02 does not display the variation - but this may be a version issue. Haven't sorted out yet whether the alarms work.

I have been searching the web looking for a good text to speech mp3 generator to start making audio files for alerts and alarms. The only one I have found with a good enough voice quality requires a $50 purchase to generate the mp3 files. The free software sounds horrible.

Here is what I was looking at.

Try it out for free. Let me know if anyone knows of a high quality product for free!

Synthesized voice to text


I used http://www2.research.att.com/~ttsweb/tts/demo.php

EDIT April 2016: The link above no longer works. Currently people are making voice @ http://www.acapela-group.com/ using the instructions found @ https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...postcount=1974

Sammi sounds


Here is a set of sounds I made when I was using the sky9x. The sounds can be any name unless they are in the system folder -- then they need to have specific names to be called by the Transmitter. tada.wav for instance is the startup sound - but you can use any sound that's a U-law or A-Law .wav file with that name and it will work.

I don't have a list of what names the system sounds calls in the Taranis. I'll work on that.


UPDATE 6/25/13
I've learned that Ulaw or Alaw are not the only WAV files that will work with the Taranis. Now, PCM encoding will work as well and that's much preferable. The sounds must be sampled at 8 or 16 or 32 kHz or the Taranis won't play them. As a result I've changed the attachments to this message.
