How long are the waiting lists at the major suppliers and most importantly, how long is the expected time for those vendors to clear those waiting lists?

Nope. Once the lcd cools it returns to normal.

I once had an LCD display for a backup camera in an RV that was parked (by the service shop) so that the sun hit it every day for a couple of weeks. The display worked but was never the same again. Since then I have considered it a bad idea to leave any LCD exposed to the sun for long periods. I normally either set my tx down face down or set a hat or wing over it.

We are using a public section in Rocket Chat for our OpenTX 2.2.X discussions here https://opentx.rocket.chat/channel/OpenTX_General

I hope to test my flashing process tomorrow and get the document ready ASAP. I'll be adding the full flashing process for FrTX that was not public before.

Thanks so much Mike!! You rock.

Horus comes with an exceedingly nice case that would protect it from the sun.

The 4 holes in my picture don't appear to be linked to gimbal tension. Mike or Wayne can chime in on this - but the screws and locations relative to the gimbals don't look encouraging. Sorry.

I predict this thread will be even bigger than the Taranis one

Horus Stock Firmware


These are the first 4 screens when you start the Horus. You navigate to the screens using the page up and page down button on the bottom left side - adjacent to the small thumb joy stick.

I'll give you a few screens not to tease but give a flavor for what the transmitter looks like with stock firmware. If more examples are desired I can do that.

This is the screen you see when pressing the SYS button on the bottom right section of the transmitter.

Horus Stock Firmware


These are the three model setup screens. You choose the item you want using the rotary encoder wheel and press the button in the center to enter the menu of that item.

Man oh man, that screen is incredible. The Horus has been the type of transmitter I've wanted from the start as I wanted a higher end radio with a better screen and color, better hardware, and still be able to use OpenTX. I love my Taranis, but have been waiting for this radio from the start.

In one of your rear view pics I can see 3 little plugs. I guess there are 4 but the angle of your pic shows 3.

These look like little raised protrusions tangential to and on either side of the handle frame.

Could these be rubber plugs you pry out with your nails to expose gimbal adjusting screw holes ?

I could be wrong and these could be molded protrusions as part of the manufacturing process.
