Site Navigation


The information on this site broadly falls under two publishing methods – Pages & Posts.


The OpenTX manual pages are accessed using the Table of Contents. The number of pages will generally be constant with occasional additions over time.


The guides, tips, hardware and the lua scripts are posts accessed using the sidebar. The number of posts will increase over time. The posts are categorized under the sidebar heading Guides & Scripts. The links with arrows expand to show sub categories and links to posts.

Some content appears under more than one category. For example the FrSKY GPS Sensor article is found under both FrSKY Hardware and OpenTX categories.
