Tell us about yourself!
It is a new Taranis. I set up a new model, the important bits are in the images. The switches on the Orange module are all off, with is DSM2-1024. BTW, and with no expectation of quid pro quo, do you have a wish list somewhere or a favorite charity or something? I've never seen someone put in this kind of support for an Instructable - would like to say thanks.
No problem for the delay. I'm grateful for your help - it's very kind of you. I took the Orange module out and confirmed that it's set to DSM2 (and when I switch it to DSMX it doesn't bind) and SPEKTRUM1024. I have tried both RX_PPM and RX_SERIAL. When in SERIAL, the graph changes when it binds (see attached); in either neither mode do the channels show any changes when I move the controls (see other attached). It's a real head scratcher - everything is new, so I can't say definitively that the Taranis, Orange or FC work, and not sure the best path to determine it. I have a Pixhawk that I'll unbox and use to test the Taranis. Beyond that, I'd be grateful for any ideas.
Ilya: do any of the channels move (e.g., the throttle)?
Edit for clarity: I have a receiver for a Pixhawk that I'll use to test the Taranis.
I have the Taranis Plus and OrangeRX DSMX/DSM2 Module from the parts list. I can bind to the receiver - which is indicated by both a solid red light and the Receiver tab of CleanFlight. However, regardless of the control inputs, the channel values never move. I've tried the specific firmware version above, as well as the latest. I've rechecked the SerialRX on UART2, RX_SERIAL, and SPEKTRUM1024 settings. I've turned off the Taranis' internal receiver, turned on the external receiver with DSM2 DSM2 CH1-8. I can see that the inputs are attached to the channels. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance and I *love* this Instructable - I've been to this page so many times that it autocompletes when I type in "i" in the browser's address bar :-)
