i am very very new to sport/hobby and it was recommended that i purchase this new radio...however there does not seem to be any tutorials on flashing with apple computer or step by step process for upgrading firmware...i think because taranis thinks anybody who would buy this radio already has had another Taranis radio...i have seen most of the videos online . Maybe on of you guys knows some other videos or some website or something....

Thank you Kindly
Keith

Thanks Mark,
As soon as you suggested it... I joined and found some good stuff. Datos seemed to think it was necessary to use open Tx...
However for frsky it says on the website that frsky is a is on its own and does not need help.? So I went with that... down loaded beta flight and found a awsome video for setting up everything... we will see

No problem Keith!

Another really awesome this new radio has is a section where you can change your PID's on the radio instead of having to use your computer.

Keith,

I'm still in Texas but if I'm not mistaken the XSR is pretty much plug-n-play with the GT2. It's an easy install. I wanted to save some room so I direct soldered mine but I don't think you have to. Anyway it's pretty easy. I should be back on line Sat or Sun. I'm sure I can get you through it.

Keith,

I just looked through my pictures and it looks like I used an X4R but the XSR should actually be easier because it's smaller. Diatone will provide a harness to the FC board that plugs directly into the FC. You'll just have to connect 3 or 4 wires from that harness to the XSR. Look at this picture of my X4R. It's the board with the black heat shrink. Note the wires running over top of that board to the connector on the left and the top of the X4R. Your XSR install will be very similar, you'll just have more room than I do.
