What is EdgeTX?

EdgeTX is a cutting-edge software designed for RC (Radio Control) transmitters, widely used in the FPV (First Person View) drone community.

Here are its special features:

Open Source Development: EdgeTX is developed and supported by a community of enthusiasts on the internet. It’s an open-source project, meaning that it’s not owned or controlled by any single hardware manufacturer. This community-driven approach allows for continuous improvement and adaptation based on user feedback and needs​​.

A Fork of OpenTX: EdgeTX is actually a fork of the well-known OpenTX project. A ‘fork’ in software development refers to taking the source code of an existing software and developing a new program based on it. EdgeTX builds upon the foundation laid by OpenTX but introduces new features and improvements​​.

Additionally, EdgeTX has made significant enhancements in the user interface, including:

Touchscreen Support: One of the notable enhancements in EdgeTX is its support for touchscreen interfaces on compatible radio transmitters. This feature provides a more intuitive and user-friendly experience for pilots​​.

Improved Lua Script Functionality: Lua is a scripting language used for customization and adding advanced features to the software. EdgeTX enhances this functionality, allowing for more sophisticated and personalized setups​​.

Updates and Fixes: The development team behind EdgeTX regularly releases updates to improve the software. For instance, the EdgeTX v2.9.1 update addressed issues like black screen themes, telemetry lost/recovered problems with ELRS (ExpressLRS), and missing mixer lines when copying models from other transmitters. These updates ensure that the software remains reliable and efficient for users​​.

ADC Filter Per Model Option: In the context of FPV drones, the ADC (Analog-to-Digital Converter) filter is an important feature. Earlier, the ADC filter setting was a global option, affecting all models. However, in EdgeTX 2.7, this was changed to allow the ADC filter setting to be adjusted per model in the Model Setup page. This flexibility is particularly beneficial for pilots who fly both quadcopters and wings, as they can now use different model profiles with tailored ADC filter settings​​.

Overall, EdgeTX represents a significant step forward in FPV drone technology, offering enhanced customization, a user-friendly interface, and a community-driven development approach.

These features make it an attractive option for both beginner and experienced FPV drone pilots
