Personalize telemetry-titles on main screen (and some other stuff)

I find it pretty useless to see the information about what telemetry unit some info does come from, in my opinion that is pretty meaningless especially when the name of value is done right. For example in stock configuration headspeed done with JLog show’s as “JLog26: RPM UNI” and that is in my opinion not clear or informative at all. Simple “Headspeed” is enough. So, I started to tinker wihin some files and sure enough, everything is possible :)

This is my main-screen, with corrected “Headspeed” from JLog

And more readable for data from Kosmik via JLog2.6GW

How-To

1. Select a model in TX you are NOT editing.
2. Connect TX with USB
3. Open the models json file
4. Make an UNEDITED BACKUP of the file.
5. Open file in text-editor. (NOT word, I use Notepad++ with json plugin)
6. To remove sensors name:
– Search for the sensors name, for example JLog26, it looks like

"Telem-Detect": {
       "Type": "Telem-Detect",
       "Data": [{
       "ID": 34120706,
       "Param": 0,
       "Saving": 1,
       "Rep": 0,
       "Trig": 0,
       "Prio": 0,
       "Decimal": 0,
       "Label": "JLog26",
       "Unit": "",
       "UnitIDX": 0,
       "DataType": 0
       },

Change the “JLog26” to “” and edit some sensor names if You need/want to. (For example JLog’s “RPM Uni” could be changed to “Headspeed” and so on.
7. Because Aileron is Aileron and not roll I also changed “Roll” to “Aileron”.
8. Save the file on TX. (If you just wanna edit model jump to 12.) NOTE: Make sure to save in ANSI, do NOT save in UTF-8 encoding!
9. To remove timer’s label “T: Timername” open language json-file, search for “T:” and change to “” in same manner. MAKE THE BACKUP.
10. To remove the REC: label from receiver voltage search and change “Rec:” to “”.
11. Because Aileron is Aileron and not roll I also changed “Roll” to “Aileron”.
12. Save the file to TX. NOTE: Make sure to save in ANSI, do NOT save in UTF-8 encoding!
13. IMPORTANT: In windows use “Eject” to disconnect from TX.
14. Press “ESC” on TX to disconnect from PC.
15. Shutdown TX.
16. Start TX.
17. Select the model You edited and check.

Looks like in my first edit’s there was something in TX cache or SD cache because I didn’t do the eject in windows, not sure if I even rebooted TX. After finding this out i verified the eject-reboot method, it works.

CAUTION: Language json will be overwritten if/when there’s an update, so always make backup’s of everything!

CAUTION: Did I say make backup?`Don’t cry for me (Argentina) if You mess up Your TX ;)
