I’m on my first quadcopter build and have managed a successful couple of flights in what I think is Simple mode, but now I’d like to be able to assign different flight modes.
I’ve got a Futaba 8FG 8-Channel 2.4GHz FASST For Helicopter w/R6008HS (8FGH_C1)
and the APM 2.0. I’m running with default turn on settings (the plane mode it comes with) and I’m yet to upgrade to the 8FG Super software to get 14 channels (as I can’t find a SD card that is recognised by the 8FG yet!!!).
I’ve been through the 8FG manual (manual seems to assume you know what you are doing...) and done a fair amount of googling, but haven’t managed to find out what I want to do... so.. a few questions...
Thanks in advance!
There is a Two switches setting there:
I use my T8FG with Normal mode receivers,
Choose Model Setup as a plane,
I used Failsafe with a PPM Sum Futaba receiver (signal loss) with my MultiWii quads, unfortunately there are 7 channels receivers and I have no luck with them and APM2 (seems to need 8 channel PPM Sum). Waiting for a FrSky compatible one.
I may use a SanDisk 2 Go SD-Card. I have to check.

Thanks for the responses!
The link looks just what I want! Not sure why that didn't show up on a google search!
Also found a programmers guide for 8FG sailplanes that has heaps of useful information on the 'why'.
