I successfully set up my er9x to switch between all 6 Flight Modes thanks to
Gordon's blog (http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/mode-switch-setup-for-turnigy).
I set the 6 modes randomly, just to check that the setup actually works.
The strange thing I am asking about is this:
while the flight modes DO switch, as seen by the GREEN highlighted items,
the MP interface reports that the CURRENT MODE (top row) won't switch appropriately,
as highlighted in RED.
The same info is shown in the main window, in this case switched to F-mode 3
(Should be LOITER, but locked as STABILIZE)
I am currently just checking radio communication with the APM2 board, ESCs are UN-ARMED.
(actually, the whole octo is disassembled... :-( bad crash..).
Would this "lockout" go away after arming the ESCs?
