The latest builds of OpenTx 2.2 are finally able to import older .eepes and convert them to OpenTx 2.2 format. Even better, Taranis templates can be re-targeted to the Horus - that's great news for those wishing to migrate their setups to the new transmitter.

N361 is the first OpenTx release to support transfer of model data from Companion to the Horus. My first attempt at running it ran into problems with the backlight (see previous post), but a simple workaround has sorted this, so let testing commence!

Firmware releases are like wine, some qualify as vintage releases, and some pass quickly into memory. It's early days, but N361 is certainly a milestone: it's the first OpenTx build to support data transfer from Companion to Horus. And it will automatically convert setups designed for the Taranis.

It's just over a year now since I published my E-Soar Plus template for full house electric sailplanes. Since then it's been adopted by a number of pilots for both sport and F5J competition. However there's always room for improvement; a few pilots have asked for a flight timer. Also I wanted to reduce the time to calibrate the servos and adjust the mixers.

After a number of RF firmware updates, FrSky's flagship transmitter is finally starting to fulfill the high expectations of FrSky fans. I think we can expect to see many more Horus's appearing on the field/slope shortly, and it'll get a further boost when OpenTx 2.2 is officially released. In anticipation of this I've ported over my F3F, F3J, E-Soar and E-Soar Plus templates to the new transmitter. These have been tested under OpenTx 2.2 RC7.
