Configuring a Simple Fixed Wing Model by Mike Dailey
Overview: This document is a step-by-step guide to configuring a simple fixed wing model in the FrSky Horus X12S using the FrTX OS. The sample model is fixed wing 65Ē span classic pattern competition aircraft called Tiporare. The FrTX OS has very powerful advanced programming options including Logical Switches and Free Mixers, but for this exercise we will use just simple basic configurations through the menu options.

Landing Gear Retraction Automation by Mike Dailey
Overview: This document is a step-by-step guide to configure a simple automated function using the FrSky Horus X12S with FrTX OS. FrTX OS is a menu driven system that provides the ability to quickly configure models using the built in functions, but FrTX also includes advanced features including Logical Switches and Free Mixers. The logic is programed so at a set altitude the landing gear is retracted and extends below the set altitude. The example provided can be used to configure other advanced functions, e.g. control throttle above set altitude or with a speed sensor control wing sweep on an F-14 Tomcat.

Configuring a Critical RSSI Level Alarm function to augment the built in RSSI Warning Alarm by Mike Dailey
Overview: This document is a step-by-step guide to configure a simple Critical RSSI Level Alarm function to augment the built in RSSI Warning Alarm with the FrSky Horus X12S FrTX OS using the Logic Switches. FrTX has a built in adjustable warning alarm setting for low RSSI and then the normal Telemetry Lost alert when the RF link is lost. It is sometimes helpful to have a second RSSI warning that can be set below the low RSSI warning, but before the Telemetry Lost alert. Using the Logic Switches and Special Functions a second adjustable RSSI Critical warning feature can be created.

FrSky XJT RF Module - 32 Channels by Mike Dailey
Overview: This document is a step-by-step guide for configuring the X12S FrTX OS and the external FrSky XJT RF module to add 16 channels to the X12S base 16 channel RF system. The configurations can be used as 32 individual channels (16 on internal IXJT and 16 on the XJT) or 16 redundant channels. There are many different combinations that can be created with the redundant RF links and this document covers the most common.
XJT 32 Channels


FrOS Landing Gear Door Sequencer by Mike Dailey
Overview: This document is a step-by-step "how to" guide to configure a simple landing gear door sequence function using the FrSky Horus with FrOS firmware. The logic switch delay function used is currently in FrOS 1.2.02 for the X10S/X10 and will be in the soon to be released 1.5.0X for the X12S. The doors open as the gear starts to retract and close after the gear is fully retracted. When the gear is extended the doors open and then close after the gear is fully extended. The gear door open time can be adjusted individually for gear up or gear down.

what's the goal of this thread ?

you have had over 100 beta testers around the world (they had to pay $$$ for samples) and you didn't even consider many of their important suggestions
https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...&postcount=692

now that the Horus is been released it's time to start collecting all the hardware defects of the first batch LOL

I am pleased to see this thread. While I have had a Taranis since it came out, I never felt all that comfortable with Open TX. I am more used to the menu system on my old Futaba 9C. I "think" in those terms. I think I am going to like Frsky OS, though I have already discovered a few features that I think should be added, and of course have a few questions.

It looks like it is designed to "speak" the name of the model if the user adds a folder of wav files of their model names. I have created such a file but don't see a name or location for it on the internal flash memory. I did add images and tracks to the memory.

How do I do the model name sounds that get "spoken" when I select a model?

Those model name sound files go in SOUNDS/en/model

When will the support start?

This support costs money.

It is not the free ( and fantastic ) support the OpenTx Devs provide just for the love of it. . .

Your Horus price is high because you obviously plan to recover your OS development costs.

Will this support cost be reflected in higher prices of your forthcoming receivers/sensors etc ? Or is it that you have factored it in on anticipation of higher sales of your products.

I suggest to you that the jury's still out on what support will be provided here. FRSKY could be hoping that other users will provide the answers to questions asked, if so there would be no cost or effort involved. Already happened with the first question asked here.

Someone with user name Frsky RC and representing FRSKY started this thread with the intent to provide information about their Horus firmware, how to use it, to collect bug reports (presumably) and notify fixes etc. I would love it if that someone could be left to do that, I want to see how well and how quickly FRSKY actually provides user support.

To that end, I think that it would be great, as an experiment, if other people who may know the answers to questions asked here refrained from answering them and left it to Frsky RC.
