I've been flying with a Spektrum DX5e until now, so I was only able to use the "gear" selection (5th channel) to switch between auto and manual.
My new DX7 allows me 2 more channels theoretically, but I'm stumped as to how to implement it for changing to other modes??
On the manual, the diagram indicates pin 8 (in, autopilot control) on the APM should connect to the receiver. This is fine for one mode. But now how can I get my receiver's extra channels to tell the APM to go to RTL, FBW etc?
On the "modes" setup it does not see me switching the additional channels on my transmitter (DX7), only the "gear" switch is picked up by the CLI. I've tried connecting another cable from pin 7 to my receiver, but no luck.
With 4 modes i've to mix 2 channels too??
If you post it, perfect, in that way i can check what is the best choice for me..
this is the result you get, thx felix
using two 2 position switches (Gear and Aux) gives you 4 modes,
one 2 position (Gear or Aux) and one 3 position switch (Flaps) gives you 6 modes ...
Ok, Felix much more clear now.... thanks...
