GVARS (Global Variables)

Used to share values amongst the various model screens and group the adjustments of parameters to share the same value. There are 9 global variables.

Global variables are global to the model, not between models. Their values can be used in weights, offsets, differential, expo settings, outputs and in logical switch comparisons.

  • Flight Mode Value: FM0 – The value of the global variable.
  • Flight Mode Inherit or Own Value: FM1-FM8 – In a particular flight mode the global variable may have its own value or take its value from another flight mode.
    Example: In the above image the flight mode 1 value on GVAR ghi is taken from flight mode 2.

Editing

General editing instructions are covered on the Screen Navigation page under editing.

A global variable may be optionally assigned a unit, precision, minimum and maximum value limits. See GitHub for More…

Value

The value can be entered while editing and changed during flight by using a special function.

In the following example global variable one will change when the knob S1 is turned. It’s value will vary for -100% to +100%. With zero being the centre value. More…

Name

The name is displayed in various locations where global variables have been used or can be selected for use. This replaces the variable number such as G1.

In the following examples a global variable is being used for a channels sub trim.

Global Variable Used: abc

Global Variable Used: ghi

Global Variable Used: G4

 

Unit

An optional unit, %, may be set. The default is none. This serves as a reminder and has no mathematical effect.

Precision

An optional precision, 0.0, may be set. The default is 0.–, no decimal.

Min Max

Minimum and maximum values default to -1024 and +1024. These serve as limits for the adjust global variable special function. More…

Popup

An optional pop up may be shown whenever a particular GVAR is being edited.

Flight Modes

Each flight mode may use its own global variable or one from another flight mode.

Taranis X7 Series flight mode 2 and 3 use GVAR 1 value from flight mode 1

Taranis X9 Series flight mode 2 and 3 use GVAR 1 (abc) value from flight mode 1
