Hi there,

I have a Futaba R6208SB connected to a pixhawk through SBUS and all work great.

I would like to configure the 6208 for mode B usage, where I can get another 8 channels(9-16) through the analogue ports of the receiver. I do power the receiver while pressing the Link button, I get the red and green led to flash simultaneously, power it off and on again, set the 14 SG channel9 to a switch, but no effect whatsoever. 

Han anyone managed to do this? I have included the Futaba manual in thiw message.

You plug the Red jumper plug on top of 6208 and follow the instruction on 6208 manual, after you get it in mode B and powered down remove the red jumper plug.

You said you plug the 6208 into the Sbus connection on the Pixhawk, I thought it was you plug the 6208 into the RC port on Pixhawk.

Hi there,

Thanks for your reply. Have you tried this with Pixhawk and it worked?

I will use the jumper as I did not use it before. Should get 16 channels?


I'm in the process of building up Tarot 680 Pro Hexicopter, I have not got the Pixhawk wired up yet.

I have the R6208Sb working in the mode "B" on a quadcopter with a ZeroUAV Gemini Controller.

I'm not quite sure if you can hook to the RC port of Pixhawk with pure Sbus, or you will have to use a Sbus to PPM converter.

Some thing I did find out about the PixHawk is you must use a ESC that has the 5V Pos+ wire to power the Servo Rail,

I purchased six OPTO ESC's and they do not have the 5V POS+ wire, only a Signal, Ground wire, so I will have to use a UBEC to power the Pixhawk 8 Servo Rails.
