I’m looking to upgrade from my QX7 to the new Radiomaster TX16S Hall when it comes out.

I have several models saved to my current radio, and I’d rather not go through the hassle of rebinding all of them.

I have seen the Oscar Liang tutorial about model transfers in OpenTX, however many people are reporting it doesn’t work.

My question is: what process can I use to transfer my models over to a new radio whilst also carrying over the receiver profiles so I don’t need to re-bind my models.

I’m not sure if it is possible so ‘you can’t’ would be a reasonable answer.

  • $\begingroup$ I'm pretty sure the OpenTX companion application model save/restore feature is the proper way. I don't have an OpenTX radio, but that's what I've heard. $\endgroup$ – ifconfig Apr 19 at 23:45

  • $\begingroup$ @ifconfig I’ve not actually tried it - the TX16S is still on preorder, however some of the comments on the article say it pops up with bad errors so I’d like to make certain of what process to follow so I don’t do damage to my new radio. $\endgroup$ – Drones and Whatnot Apr 20 at 0:04
  • $\begingroup$ For what it's worth, I doubt you can do damage to a radio with OpenTX companion. If it's worth anything, JB also says this is correct: youtube.com/watch?v=8YUY2J8tJaM $\endgroup$ – ifconfig Apr 20 at 1:01

Transferring models shouldn't be a problem since both radios run OpenTX.

However, you cannot transfer bindings unless you are also moving an external module to the new radio. For example, if you move a crossfire module from the QX7 to the Radiomaster, all your models are still bound at the module level, no re-binding required. But if you are going to be using the internal module of the new radio then re-binding is required.
