Mode1 V Mode 2 Radio Assignments

Just starting out in getting a APM into the air however I have run into a question.  I fly Mode 1 with the throttle on the right hand stick and the pitch on the left.  APM seems to be setup for Mode 2 which most of the USA flies (I am in Australia).

Is it possible to setup APM for Mode 1 or do I have to learn to fly again :-)

  • James is right. I fly mode 3 (also in Australia) and it's the channels that APM cares about, not how the channels are controlled. Throttle is always channel 3, aileron is always channel 1, regardless of which mode your transmitter is. For the sake of completeness... elevator is ch 2 and rudder is ch 4.

    Of course if you did some weird mix on your transmitter and made throttle channel 1 and aileron channel 3 then APM would get very confused. :)

  • The mode of the transmitter is irrelevant for APM. The throttle signal produced is the same regardless of which mode is used. The mode really just refers to the physical position of the throttle stick on your transmitter, but has no impact on what the receiver in the plane sees.

     

    BTW - I use Mode 1 with APM.
