    I followed the instructions to the letter, but I get “No Telemetry Screens” on the display

    Hi Bill,

    I haven’t had this error myself, so I can only give you my best guess based on what I’m finding online. Is the OpenTX 2.1.x flashed on your Taranis with the LUA option enabled (source: http://openrcforums.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6888)?
    Another thing to check: make sure there is no folder named SDcard on your Taranis SD card… If there is, the scripts are not in the correct folder and maybe that’s why you’re getting this error (source: https://github.com/opentx/opentx/blob/9fb7f12091c7ba37fa63f0ed1eea1951a32f2eb1/radio/src/gui/Taranis/view_telemetry.cpp).

    I will say this much. OpenTX makes it incredibly difficult to revert to an older firmware for the Taranis. Had it not been for you providing a link to the prebuilt 2.1.6 LUA enabled version of the firmware, I don’t know what my brother and I would have done (we were setting my brother’s unit up). That’s something I’ll likely speak to the devs at OpenTX about. If Mission Planner allows you to load older firmwares from their repo, then it shouldn’t be too incredibly difficult to do the same with OpenTX.

    Hi Mark,

    Yes, I ran into the problem myself… Older versions of OpenTX are hard to come by, and I appreciate you recognized my attempt to accommodate those that want to use 2.1.6 by providing that OpenTX firmware on our Github. That’s a good suggestion for the OpenTX devs.

    I was able to fix this by switching from a windows 10 computer to a linux computer. It was version 2.1.7.

    I do have another question though. Do I need to install the servo cable from the pixhawk to the x8r in addition to this cable?

    Thanks

    Yes, the servo cable connected between RCIN on the Pixhawk and SBUS on the X8R is still needed for the Pixhawk to get the RC inputs from your Taranis.

    Ok I have an interesting problem. I have had a system running Flight Deck with out issues until just recently. I have the X9D+, I see telemetry on the telemetry page and on the upper label of the home screen. I hold down the Page button and get the FlightDeck splash screen but it just sits and waits for sensors. It didn’t used to do this it was working not long ago. Nothing has changed on the aircraft or the Cube autopilot or the model on the Taranis. I have formatted the SD card and loaded the appropriate SD files for the Taranis plus Flight Deck and still no change. What is missing between telemetry coming in and the Flight Deck script?

    Hi Lawrence,

    Check that the associated serial port is still configured for protocol 10.

    Is the “GPS” sensor updating (star symbol) on the TELEMETRY screen (may require that you perform Discovery)?
