Enabled Features

The Enabled Features section of Radio Setup allows you to configure the Global settings for which tabs are visible in the Radio Setup and Model Settings area of EdgeTX. The configuration setting for the active model will show to the right of the toggle switch. The model configuration will override the global configuration.

Note: Turning off a tab only hides the tab and does not change the items already configured in that tab.

EXCEPTION: Turning off the Global / Special Functions tab will disable configured global / special functions for that model.

Manage Models

Model quick select - Affects Manage Model screen. Both options require you first to select the desired model using the scroll wheel or short tap.

  • When OFF: short/long tap (short/long ENTER) on the selected model will show the menu, where you can "Select model" to set it to active.

  • When ON: short tap (short ENTER) on the selected model will set it active immediately. To activate the menu, make a long tap or long ENTER.

Label select - 'Multi select' or 'Single select' (Multi select is the default). If Single select is chosen then only a single label can be selected.

Label matching - 'Match all' or 'Match any' (Match all is the default). Match all is the current logic - only models having all selected labels are shown. Match any will show models with any of the selected labels.

Favorites matching - Only available when 'Match any' is selected for Label matching. Options are 'Must match' and 'Optional match' (Must match is the default). Only applies when 'Favorites' is in one of the selected labels. If 'Must match' is selected then only shows models that have Favorites AND the other selections. If 'Optional match' is selected then models that match Favorites OR any of the other labels are shown.
