How to setup "Current PWM" in flight mode to listen another channel (input)

Hey guys,

After many difficulties, I've been able to connect my Transmitter to my APM.

I would like to setup my flight modes, but the mission planner indicates that my APM is listening on Channel 8 (Current PWM).

For the flight modes my receiver is linked to my apm using the channel 5 or 6 (Aux 1 white wire or Aux 2 orange wire) (see picture below).

So is it possible to change the current pwm parameter to channel 5 or 6?

Or do I need to add an extra wire to connect my receiver to the input 8 ?

Thanks for your help

Hi,

You can take any channel on the receiver that you like, and wire that to channel 8 on the APM. It will not control flight mode.

I would suggest that if possible, you also use channel 8 on the radio. Less confusing that way.

What do you mean with "current pwm parameter"?

Set FLTMODE_CH to 5 in the full parameter list.

Hi,

I'm using Rover v3.1.0 and want to change the flight mode switch to channel 5 from my transmitter. 

On Mission Planner, I'm looking at; Config/Tuning>Standard Parameters, but there's no FLTMODE_CH parameter. 

How do I change this?  (feel free to be specific).  Thanks in advance

Solved. 

Looking under the config/tuning, I found MNT:MODE_CH and changed it to 5.  Now everyone in my family is happy.

I am using mission planner 1.3.44. There is no MNT: MODE_CH that I can find. Which version are you using @Darren Smith. My current PWM and MODE in the "Flight mode" is always same even if I change the throttle or anything else via the controller.
