Low cost and good quality do not necessarily go hand in hand with alot of the Asian R/C equipment. There has been alot of problems with the Turnigy R/C equipment on other forums especially the receivers.
Since I put alot of work into my aircraft I decided to spend the money on better equipment like Spektrum. I use a DX7 with a three position flap switch that worked fine without any adjusting of the Ardupilot or APM.
Just a thought.
I picked up an E-flite HP6DSM Transmitter, which uses the Spektrum 2.4GHz DSM Technology. Channel 5 has a knob which works fine on my ArduPilot. I use the HobbyKing Orange Receivers with the Orange Satellite Receiver.
This Transmitter is a basic unit, and does not have all the bells and whistles of the higher priced systems. Look on ebay for the best deals. I have seen new ones as low as $40.00 plus shipping.
I have the T7C controller plus the R617FS receiver, but am kinda new to all of this, could anyone point me in the direction of how to set this up?
I eventually managed to program the 3-way switch on the Turnigy 9X: http://rcav.posterous.com/programming-an-ardupilot-mode-switch-for-...
