    I'm configuring my Taranis to bind to my Phantom 2, but it could be any multicopter. What I scratch my head over is interpreting AETR (fixed wing originally I assume) for a multicopter.
    I have in my head
    Ch1 A (Roll - Sideways movement)
    Ch2 E (Pitch - Forward/Backward movement))
    Ch3 T (Throttle - Climb rate or forward/sideways speed when the aircraft is pitched or rolled)
    Ch4 R (Yaw - causing the aircraft to turn around its centre point)

    Am I right? I know you can configure anything on a Taranis, but I'm not looking for "correct channel", just A = Roll. etc

    It probably won't stop me configuring the transmitter, but I want to write it into my big book of RC notes. I am an electronics engineer, but I am humbled by the unexpected range and sophistication of RC these days. I feel like I've gone back to primary school.
