Connect OrangeRX USB Wireless Dongle to FrSky Taranis

This is a quick tutorial on how to connect the FrSky version of the Orange RX USB Wireless Dongle (From HobbyKing) to a Taranis, along with the calibration process in FPV Freerider. The most important settings for binding to the Taranis are:

 

Mode: D8
Channel Range: 1-6

 

If you don’t properly set you channel range the light will not stay solid and the channels will be jumping around.

  • I’m trying to connect this dongle to a FS-i6 transmitter, but can’t get them to bind. Are there any settings i need to use on the transmitter?

    what i’ve tried.

    plugged in the usb dongle while holding the button down and releasing (dongle flashes)
    then held down the bind button on the fs-i6 while powering it on and it says “RX binding….”

    but then nothing happens, it doesnt pair.

    any settings i need to change on the FS-i6 to get them to connect?

  • Hi Zach, I’m having problems setting up my QX7 with the FPVFreerider simulator with my Mac. It binds with the Orange RX USB Wireless Dongle I’m using no problem but the stick movement is not detected in the sim. Mac sees the dongle as “FrSky USB HID” in System information so I guess the Mac is reading it?
