Default How to coordinate model setups

I am NEW to OpenTX. I have three helis set up on my TARANIS X9D+ 2019. I have tried to standardise switches and functionality across the three Helis.

Initially, I did this by setting up one and then copying and making only the specific changes required for that model.

Now that I better understand OpenTX, I need to make changes to the standard setup (that is that part of each model that is common across models).

I can see that Templates are a way of setting up a model initially (they appear to be a one-off assignment) but is there a mechanism to allow me to have a common model and only have the changes against the specific model?

DO I have to make the same changes to EACH of the specific models?

TIA,
Paolo

As far as I know you must change each separately. Sucks when you get better at OpenTX and want to improve your setup.

My solution is low number of helis. Not really by choice, but it does keep things easy

Paolo,

I started about a year ago with OpenTx and have come across some similar scenarios, I always copy from one model to another and basically have used the same starting point - it seems OK except when I forgot to change the Receiver number.

I have now added some additionally telemetry and had to reverse-engineer that into all models, this wasn't without some problems, but I found that using the Companion "Compare" function was really helpful in highlighting any differences.

Cheers,
Mike.

Yes, Mike, I came across the Compare Function after I posted. Certainly seems the way to go.

It would be great to have the ability to make changes directly in the Comparator (as with most normal file and text comparators).

Still, "better than a kick in the head" as we say out here in Oz.

Paolo
