Just turn from the Dark Side and embrace your inner Mode-2ness - you know you want to. As the almightly Foss said (BMFA 22:18):

"Thou shalt not suffer the Mode-1 to live; Whosoever lieth with a right-side throttle shall surely be put to death. He that sacrificeth unto any mode, save unto Mode-2 only, he shall be utterly destroyed.

And of course there is the over-riding lore:

"Modes that are fashioned by the imaginations and hands of men are absolutely worthless" (Futaba 44:9-10)

and

The true Mode 2 is full of glory, grace, and truth (Flightlink 1:14)

Remember there is more joy in Buckminster over one Mode-devient that repenteth that there are needles in the eye of the Camel...

Many thanks, for your reply - you're correct. I received some instructions, from another forum, which directed me to the Frsky website, where, in the 'Discontinued' transmitter section, I found the V2.1.0 FW for the tx's XJT internal module - like you say, this matched the FW in the rx. After flashing the FW to the tx, hey presto, all was well.

In case anyone encounters the same problem, more details of the solution can be found here:

AFAIK you have to have the same firmware versions in Rx and Tx - so if your receivers are running ISRM 2.1.* they won't bind with a transmitter running ISRM 1.1.*

Taranis Special Interest Group / S8R/X8R will not bind to Taran...

I am not able to bind my S8R and X8R receivers to my Taranis X9D-Plus. I have flashed the latest non-EU firmware to both receivers:

S8R firmware: S8R_ACCST_2.1.0_FCC
X8R firmware: X8R_ACCST_2.1.0_FCC

Taranis Opentx firmware: opentx-x9d+ / version: 2.24 (66bb9c3a) 2019-07-11

When trying to bind, the receiver's LED shows a solid red.

Could the problem be the Taranis' internal RF's module FW? My understanding is that this cannot be updated; however, if it can, I presume my V8FR-II receivers won't work?

Many thanks.

Can you change the stick mode from mode 2 to mode 1?

3rd in the Eachine 400mm Micro Warbird series is out. Preceeded by the P-51 Mustang and F4U Corsair. This flies just as well. I leave it in MIDD mode. EXPERT mode is too sensitive for most fingers...and contrary to what I say in the video you can pull loops and rolls in stabilised MIDD mode. BEGINNER mode limits pitch and roll and prevents inverted flight. Durability of these models is great. The prop pops off in a bad arrival and just clicks back in place.
