How to use OpenTX / EdgeTX Radio: How to fly FPV drone

RadioMaster Zorro EdgeTX radio controller
OpenTX / EdgeTX is a well-known radio / transmitter firmware used in Tiny Whoops / FPV drones. Here, we have summarized basics of how to use radio equipped with OpenTX / EdgeTX.
The same operation is possible with any radio that uses OpenTX / EdgeTX, such as Jumper T-Pro, T-Lite, T12, T16, RadioMaster Zorro, TX series and FrSky Taranis series. However, keyswitch assignments / functions differ depending on model, and screen / menu configuration differs depending on installed version of OpenTX / EdgeTX.
For more information on Tiny Whoops, see Introduction to FPV drone for beginner: How to fly Tiny Whoop / Racing drone .

What is EdgeTX

EdgeTX Startup Logo
EdgeTX is a fork of OpenTX 2.3.11. The first official version 2.4.0 "Endeavor" was released in July 2021. State-of-the-art technologies have been tested in the EdgeTX community, some of which are expected to be adopted by OpenTX in the future. Compared to OpenTX, the development pace is faster, new functions are incorporated faster, and EdgeTX is the first to support radios that are delayed in supporting OpenTX. But stability may be better with OpenTX.
You can install EdgeTX on many of radios that OpenTX runs on. Use EdgeTX Companion instead of OpenTX Companion to manage radios on your computer. Both the radio and companion software have almost the same functions and usage as OpenTX.
