Hello. Is it possible to use filename as model name? I create models by duplicating old config on SD card in computer, but when I load model in TX, model name is still old one and I often forget which file I loaded :).

    It's possible, but has some disadvantages.

    For now "Templates" are created by copy/move model from one directory to "template" one. That cause, when you save model from template directory, it will be saved in different place and don't destroy Your template.

    That same is with file name. Maybe when I replace ONLY model name with file name after loading model from SD it will be enough? Folder name will be untouched, so "templates" will works, and model copied on PC change internal name after first load.
    What You think, that solve Your problem? Then You can copy models on PC but only within that same folder.

    Is that template thing in v58 or 60? I had no time to try them yet. I cannot see (or find :) ) it in 57. If so, it is enough to use templates, no need for PC. I'll just make configs for different types of aircrafts and store it in templates.

    That "templates" are included from beginning.
    It is not a function in menu, but it is how behave saved models.

    Insert SD card into computer, Create directory "T_HELI" or "T_AIR" (or use any other name You like) on SD card. Copy here a sample config for helicopter (check SVN to find it).
    Now insert SD into radio. If you need to configure heli, just load this file to have basic configuration in memory. Because of directory and file name incorporated into config, "template" will not be replaced after save...

    So, I added this function to 0.061 but only for model name.
    After load model from SD card, internal name will be replaced with replaced with file name (only 8 letters, don't use any file extension)
