Open TX – Data Flow
This diagram shows where data is created and how the Model screens use it.

The left hand section of the diagram shows how data comes into the transmitter from external sources and internal utilities.
These external sources are sticks, pots., sliders, switches, trainer channels and the telemetry data. The internal utilities are the transmitter battery voltage, the transmitter clock, timer 1 and timer 2.
Each item of data is represented by a rectangle with a name above it. The value of the data item conceptually is in the rectangle and can vary as things change.
This diagram shows how data is organised for one model. All of 60 models are organised in the same way even though only one model is ever active at one time.
New Model Automatic Data Setup
When a new model is created using the new model wizard (see Model Selection), simple data paths for throttle, ailerons, elevator and rudder are created automatically.
For example, when a four channel plane is created using the model wizard...
It is important to understand that the values on the left of each Inputs line is the result of the calculations done in the line(s) for that Inputs channel
Also, the value on the left of each Mixer line is the result of the calculations done in the line(s) for that Mixer channel.
And, the value on the left of each Servo line is the result of the calculations done in the line for that Servo channel.
Keep this data flow in mind when setting up other channels manually.
