launch height can't fix stupid
Well if Lemon can understand it..........

For those that do not know, I have been flying my Taranis in DLG comps for over a year and love it. My program is derived from multiple sources and works well for me.

I am confident Adrian will be bitten by what this TX can do and never stop improving on a taranis program. THe bulldog has bitten.
You must understand that complicated is a handicap in flying. I attempted to get the simplest, yet feature rich setup. If you look at Cory's setup, imagine trying to change something and the amount of time it may require with unpredictable results. This setup is easy to change and it will give predictable results.

K.I.S.S.

I like AD's startup. It was easy to move switch functions, etc right off. A guy could build on this easily, but for plug and play, its very nice.

JonBoy, how does this progarm compare to what you were using when you did so well in Vegas?
I think the program can get very complicated and maybe have a few more features, Multi rates, varied throws and diffs for each flight mode and not be that much complicated in operation. I agree a noob wouldn't know how to adjust all of these curves, diffs etc. Im very new to Taranis but I see that there will never be agreement on the best method since there are so many ways do do things. I am looking into Cory's program. I need one of those unobtainable switches.
Thinking about all of the settings and adjustments. What would be the disadvantage to having a long list of GVARS, function, direction, that you keep for each plane.

So if you want to adjust something you look at the list and function and adjust that GVAR as you watch its effect. Im thinking this would prevent you from having to find the screen that has the % number you want to adjust.

If you really have to, set different values for specific flight modes on the GVAR's (Instead of 'use GV0 value'), even if you just set a few.

Changing trim behavior in the flight mode settings is possible too. For instance set the rudder trim to its own value for flight modes launch and zoom would add whatever offset you want using the trim switches on the rudder while in those flight modes and just for those flight modes. Perfect. No new curves, mixes or switches.

PS

Randy, you need to simplify. Reduce variables. Use the basic setup and get the plane trimmed and flying perfectly.
Then, experiment by changing one thing and testing. If you change three things, you may forget to test (properly!) one of them. That leads to a surprise at some point.

My advice to anyone would be get the surfaces moving to spec or what you know you need starting from a clean copy of AD.DLG.X and following the OP exactly. Fly and trim it thoroughly. After that, tinker with the setup, adding or changing it for you with lots of flying between changes.

wrong descision, wrong time
When I get a chance, I'll grab this program and load it onto my taranis. I'm also a fan of simplicity

Yes using trims in each flight mode work well. One thing for sure is that it that with Taranis and the companion and writing and saving modified files to the TX I do see a possibility for disaster. I will be in no rush to fly until I look at all the movements of each surface. Just because I fly like Shet doesn't mean I cant keep track of a few extra switches.

I mean Adrian why bother with the Taranis.. why dont you make a flying helmet... that translates your thoughts to control the DLG.

I will behave... forget the helmet... the driod in your pocket should talk to the taranis in your backpack and thoughts should be all you need.

Ok so how would it be possible (maybe some are doing this already?) to create curves for each aileron such that even with a bit of uneven linkage the angle of each aileron is corrected and very even for the full flap pull? I know building them alike is the goal. But it seems like this taranis should be able to correct that. Just get into some calibration mode where you pull flaps and trim flaps equal as many points as you want and it fixes it. am I the only guy who is anal about flaps causing turning?

I thought Taranis had a whole menu page specifically for aligning servos.

Yes, it does.

Adjust the aileron servo Min and Max values individually, staying with K.I.S.S.
Besides, exactly what does a slight offset in deep flaps do? You are the largest cause of turns

Thanks for posting that pic again. I forgot that subtrim does not move endpoints. I need to go back and adjust centering instead of subtrim. I knew this at one point and remember seeing that picture but I forgot :/.
