Turnigy F. Mode Switch driving me nuts

Hey Guys,

For the past 2 days I have been looking for an answer. Yes I read this -> http://www.diydrones.com/forum/topics/turnigy-9x-modes-setup and I understand everything when it come to getting 6 modes working. But I don't want this: I want the F@#ing F. Mode switch to work in the first place. (now its not channel 5 and therefor not working in APM>??

I got a Turnigy 9X is a v2 Mode 2. The is configured on FM-PPM (PCM seems to send out weird signals...)

  1. What channel is the F. Mode button assigned to by default - I can't find the answer :-(
  2. Why does APM thinks my GEAR Switchs is Channel 5?

I am really sorry if I am #22334 that asked (most probably the same question). But I am losing my mind here. Help :)

  • Paul, Mike ir right.

    If you have original firmware just follow these steps:  http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/mode-switch-setup-for-turnigy-1

    You can install all 6 modes but then ONLY use 3 of them on a switch.

    Only after you try it you will understand it. (I was fighting 3 days) :)



  • I couldnt work it out with the stock firmware, there doesnt seem to be a way to use it going by the manual.

    I have flashed mine to ER9x and it is a piece of cake to set up now

  • Hi all,

    Thanks for the quick replies.

    But guys, I do not need 6 modes. I just want to get the F. Mode Switch working.

    I can't find any where in the darn 9x Menu / Documentation where I can see where the F. Mode is allocated to. If I flick the F Mode Switch nothing happens in APM. If I go to the AUX-CA Menu option and allocate Channel 5 to Gear. I see the Channel 5 on the default value 1081 and If I flip it it goes to 1901.

    This is equal to flight mode 1 OR flight mode 6.

    Again I just want 3 flights that I can select with the F. Mode switch.

    Help :D

    This is not an APM or a Mission Planner question, but I'll do what I can to answer it here anyways. 

    Did you follow the instructions at http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/mode-switch-setup-for-turnigy-1 ?
