The Horus is a sweet piece of kit - when it's fully operational. Unfortunately my own unit arrived with a gimbal that was double-centring. To FrSky's credit, it didn't take long to receive a replacement stick unit, and today I cracked open the transmitter to install it. It also offered an opportunity to inspect the Horus internals.

The OpenTx developers have been making great progress with 2.2. The latest build is able to open .eepes created in OpenTx 2.1, and convert them to OpenTx 2.2 format. Even better, they can be re-targeted to the Horus - great news for those wishing to migrate their setups to the new transmitter.

In anticipation of this I've ported over my F3F, F3J, E-Soar and E-Soar Plus templates to the new transmitter.
