Customize Radiomaster TX16S Screen: Widgets and Theme

by Oscar

To take full advantage of the huge color screen of the Radiomaster TX16S, you should customize the color and interface layout, i.e. the theme and widgets! You can do the same on the Jumper T16 too.

See my review of the Radiomaster TX16S. You can get this radio from:

So this is the original home screen layout and color, kind of boring right? What good is the color screen if they are all the same? The good news is you can change that in countless ways!

How to Customize Home Screen

Hold down the “TELE” button (last button on the left) will take you into the home screen customization page (Main view 1).

How to Customize TX16S Home Screen Layout

There are five layouts you can choose from, pick the one you like, and select “Setup Widgets

Here you can choose what to display in each box, such as timer, custom text, channel outputs etc, RSSI, battery voltage, or just about anything from telemetry.

Here are some examples:

Here is mine, RSSI for crossfire, and battery voltage from the quad. You can also change the color of the text if you want.

You can create multiple home screens with different layout, to display different elements. You can scroll through these home screens with the “PAGE” button.

How to Change TX16S Home Screen Color

On the same page, press the “PAGE” button until you arrive on the “User Interface” tab. Here you can change the theme of your home screen. You can even fine tune the colors of the background and top bar by setting RGB values.

Play around with the number, you might get surprised :) For example, to make it green instead of red, you just need to enter these values:

In here you can also customize what you want to put in the four slots of the top bar. The elements available are similar to what you get previously in the home screen layout.

Here I will select a few random ones as example.

Using EdgeTX?

If you flashed EdgeTX to your TX16S instead of OpenTX, there are way more theme options available that you can apply right away to your radio.

To choose a theme, hold down the SYS button, and scroll to THEMES.

You can find more themes here created by the community: https://giters.com/EdgeTX/themes#list-of-themes-available

Next is to setup the widgets.

Usually you want to display telemetry data like battery voltage, RSSI and Link quality etc, so the first thing is to power up your quad, and discover telemetry sensors that are available. If you already have them, you can try deleting them all and discover again just in case, this ensure you get the most up to date list of sensors.

I see in the example above, you have added red and black as your widget colors for RQly and RxBt. I cannot get any of the telemetry widget colors to change?

This is also available on the nirvana, but more accessible thru the touchscreen. You only need to upgrade the firmware to the version from Stefan73 (fpv-racing-forum.de/thread/10186-flysky-nv14-firmware-building/)
