Channel Naming

The MULTI Channel Namer LUA script can be used to automatically name the channels of any model which is configured with a MULTI-Module protocol.

The script uses the configured protocol, a database containing the channel assignments for each protocol, and the module's configured Expected Channel Order to name all the channels according to their specified use.

The script makes it extremely easy to assign the correct inputs to each channel by matching inputs to the named outputs.

The MULTI Channel Namer script is included in OpenTX 2.3.8. OpenTX 2.3.8 or newer is required to use the script.
