as it was kind o difficult to me setting up flight modes on APM the way Gordon discribed, I tried to find an easyer way (but still Gordon did a good job and my way based on his...)
Big THX to apocolipse, as I forgot to write which firmware I`m using. It`s the er9x (lates trunk)
I show on an examples, as it is real easy. What I did is to use the custom switches 1 to 6 (csw1 - csw6) and the mixers.
Goto to mixer and add a line with the setting (in my case ch8 but it`s up to u, which ch u use)
CH08 100% MAX SWITCH (SW1)
100% MAX SWITCH (SW2)
100% MAX SWITCH (SW3)
100% MAX SWITCH (SW4)
and so on....
Ok, now I go to Switches an assign the following values to SW1:
CSW1 function: and / value1:ID0 / value2: !AIL (if u`re not use to, ! means not active)
CSW2 function: and / value1:ID1 / value2: !AIL
CSW3 function: and / value1:ID2 / value2: !AIL
CSW4 function: and / value1:ID0 / value2: AIL
CSW4 function: and / value1:ID1 / value2: AIL
CSW4 function: and / value1:ID2 / value2: AIL
Now you hook up APM in cli mode, going to pwm test. Taking the radio and adjusting the 100% value on SW1 so, that I get the recommended 1165 for normal mode (in my case: CH08 / -65% / MAX / SWITCH(SW1).
Do this to all mixers.
Then I set the modes, like shown on diy google codepage.
