One benefit of setting up GPS on a drone is to get real time GPS coordinates – so when you crash you can track down your model. You could display them in your OSD, but that’s only useful when you have video signal or to look back in the DVR. In this guide I will show you how to record GPS coordinates inside the Taranis.
Throttle timer in Taranis measures time based on throttle level. It can used to “guess” when you should land without monitoring current draw or voltage of the battery. In this tutorial I will show you how to setup Throttle Timer in Taranis TX.
The timer in Taranis TX is a useful feature we can use to keep track of how long we have flown, and help us decide when we should land. In this tutorial I will show you how to setup up a timer on a Taranis radio, that you can start, stop, pause and even reset using your arm switch.
You can use Throttle Curve to change throttle output at different throttle level. This is useful to change the sensitivity, the minimum and maximum output of the throttle stick. I will show you what you can use Throttle Curve for and some examples.
Adjusting the tension in your Taranis TX Gimbal sticks can make a big difference to your flying. In this tutorial I will show you how to loosen/tighten the transmitter gimbals for better performance.
If you use Telemetry and voltage warning on your Taranis TX, you might notice the frequent false alarms due to voltage fluctuation, e.g. sudden drop in voltage due to punch-outs. In this tutorial we will show you how to set up Logical switches to make a more reliable voltage alarm.
In this tutorial I will show you how to setup a switch on the Taranis to simply read out the voltage of the battery on your quadcopter.
As part of setting up a quadcopter or racing drone, it’s very important to make sure your transmitter sticks match the radio signal received in the flight controller. You quad would fly more accurately and reliably with the correct channel end points and mid points.
The stock Taranis speaker is pretty bad in terms of sound quality. It’s sufficient for what we use it for, but if you are looking for better sound quality, especially for background music, you might find this tutorial useful.
There are many Taranis X9D hacks, DIY mods, tutorials and upgrades! I spent a long time making this great compilation of resources related to Taranis X9D TX radio transmitter. Some of the modifications might also work for other Frsky TX including the Taranis Q X7 and Horus X10 and X12.
There are many Taranis Upgrades you can do. In this project I changed the shell of the Taranis X9D TX transmitter, the stickends, switch nuts and added switch sleeves. All these upgrades hugely improve the aesthetics and handling of the radio.
