F3F setup for Taranis version 4

Since the first version of my F3F setup was published back in 2013, there's been a healthy stream of interest from both sport and competition flyers, many of whom have provided useful feedback. My thanks to all who've contributed with comments and suggestions.

Using OpenTx to help manage LiFe rx batteries

[note: in my original post, I included some code for a timer alert. I have removed this as OpenTx imposes a limit of 23 minutes 59 seconds for the timer operand in logical switches]

I recently bought a LiFe pack for my Needle 115. So what, you say! Well until now I've used Eneloops exclusively on all my F3F models. However, the Needle is equipped with high voltage servos - so there was no choice but to go for a 2S LiPo or LiFe. I settled on the latter as they are less prone to catch fire.

Migrating setups from Taranis X9D to X9E

The Taranis X9E contains a superset of the X9D's controls, and in theory any setup designed for the X9D will also run on the X9E. In practice, setups which use LS or RS will need modification.

In this post I'll explain the background, and the fix. Or you can jump straight to 'Fix'.
