I'm new here and thank you for hosting me I hope to improve my knowledge
Here I am in robotics for quite some time and I started for the first time in the manufacture of a drone (Quad).
Everything seems to work but here I have to acquire on a radio.
I could buy a radio single but if I want to deepen and later get into other projects Helicopter Aircraft, etc. .. ) I have to probably buy an RC fairly complete first blow.
I'm quite tempted by a Futaba 10CHG with Recepter R6014HS which of course is disproportionate to my actual use but hey I know ...
The problem is I can not find it in Mode 2.
I know the difference between mode 1 and mode 2 and without really knowing why, I would feel better in mode 2. in addition, everything I've read on Heli Quads and they are usually driven in Mode 2.
Don a first question, is it possible to switch modes?
Buy a Mode 1 and Mode 2 use it? I know some commands support both modes.
If it is not possible, what are the implications of a switch to?
Note that I have no habit.
And if not, you know or find available in mode 2?
Thank you for your answers.
For the price of the Futaba 10CHg, i think you should change the mode on the radio.
On my Hitec Aurora 9, i can change the flying mode and change any chanel to other ( for example change throtle to rudder ) on the config screen of the radio.
(ps: ça doit passer comme une lettre a la poste ^^ )
But if it is so easy to change the mode, why he have somme sales in Mode 1 aund others in Mode 2 ?
Comme tu peux le voir mon anglais est bien moins bon que mon Français ;)
My Hitec Aurora9 is sold as mode1 and i fly in mode 3 ^^
They sold radio with a preporgrammed mode but you can change it as you want.
It's more easy to start with a radio programmed like you want ( don't have to spend time to programme it ).
OK Thank you.
Better to ask at this price no ?
I don't understand your last answer.
The price should not change if it's in a mode1 or mode 2.
The internal parts are the same.
ps: si tu veux passe en mp ;)
No of course I just wanted to say it's the price was preferable not to make mistakes.
Yet, here it is clearly indicated on the sales site (HK)
Note* Mode1 transmitter. Throttle is on the right stick.
You should take a look here ^^:
Make sure you get the proper mode radio you want. The hardware is NOT the same. The throttle has no spring on it, so it does matter which mode radio you get unless you want to be opening it and messing with springs.
Mode 1 is a left handed radio. Mode two is right handed.
It's ok with that.
I tell it to him in mp and in my last reply in the link i've posted there's some infomations about the switching mode. ^^
I'm very happy with my Futaba T8FG Super. So happy I bought a second one. I would recommend looking at it if you are considering the 10CHG. It does look like HK is mostly selling these two as mode 1, but if you look at google shopping, you'll find other vendors selling these, and some are a bit cheaper than HK. I might get some cheaper TX systems, based on their hackability, ability to accept telemetry mods. But as a rock solid, configurable, quality-feeling transmitter, I do like the futaba T8FG.
For $480 it better be made of gold and fly the plane it's self.
I could see spending around $150 for a really nice transmitter, but the markup on some of these units is insane.
The 9X system has set the bar and nobody else seems to even try to compete. Sure, the Futuba is a bit better, but it's not 9+ times better. It's probably not even 3X as good.
You're probably right, but there are several things to consider.
1 / Be sure not to be blocked and be certain of not having to change too often.
2 / Futuba has a pretty good reputation so it is a token of peace.
3 / When you're not a big used this kind of material, it is important to be sure not to make mistakes
4 / We are on the site DyDreone. Pay $ 200 for a central innertielle while there could also be at 30 concidéré as a fault.
As I said, I intend to use this RC has many other things that fly a drone. It is therefore important that it also polyvalante as possible.
