"Larry, That's a very nice demo. You should do a whole series on APM setup and configuration, with the same style as this! At the very least post this one as it's own thread. Things get lost around here if they are buried at all."

"Yes. This is an awsome guide. I still refer back to it whilst doing new setups, even in preference to copying setting from another TX.   It works for all sorts of Tx's too :)"
