Additional user comments received:


> The switch works just like a dream. Thank you for a perfect solution !

> I tried out the switch and definately feel that it is worth my effort to install as now I can use 6 flight profiles and easily switch between them.

> I found the installation easier then soldering on a deans connector, and with my intermediate soldering skills I was able to complete the installation.

> Using this switch has been flawless. Once calibrated I have never experienced any failures with the hardware. It has come to the point that I trust it without a second thought. It has been so essential to my radio setup that I cannot imagine using an APM2 without it.

> Very Easy to set up. I am very pleased with the switch. And easy to mount when I can buy the parts in a kit and with instruction.

> installation was easy. i mounted mine in place of the hover pitch pot. i had to file the body of the "ele" switch a little to get it to fit, but it did -FlySky FS-TH9X

> It surely does make life easy... The big advantage is that now I have all the modes on just 1 switch. No need to look around for combination of 2 different pots...

> i am using it for my NAZA GPS and it made my life easier, one is used for flight mode (Manual/Attitude/GPS/Fail Safe(RTH)) and one for Intelligent Orientation Control  (IOC) (Off/Home Lock/Course Lock)

> Extremely easy to install, even with it being the DIY version.It is perfect! I Could only use 3 modes easily before, so this is a night and day difference.

Do you have a guide (tutorial) to install a Futaba T10C?

I did a similar mod (my own parts/method) to a Hitec Eclipse Tx and I didn't think it was safe without a master "enable" switch (which you may already have or counsel, IDK). This enable switch flips between Stabilize mode and the mode selected by the 6-pos switch. The point being that it's really best to be in Stabilize mode before you change to another mode. Just my opinion... I see that Auto and Acro modes are on ends of the switch travel for just this reason, they are not modes you want to "sweep past" when picking something else. Comments? Am I being overly wary?

The DYI universal kit works well in my Hitec Aurora 9.

The instructions does not explain how to solder the knob to the blue trimmers??

Did anyone have install this on Spektrum DX7?

Ordered one about a week and a half ago...can't wait:).  Anyone know roughly how long the mail takes to North America, mainly Canada?

(2) Turnigy 9x's running er9x.  Works fine.

Ted, will make it usually in 10-20 days.

Hein - you receive the soldering schematics physically with your kit !

Craig,  I was one of the users quoted above.  The flight modes are programmable in the GCS.  I have mine set to stabilize\loiter\stabilize\stabilize\auto\stabilize with channel 7 set up for the simple mode override on GEAR.  If I use other flight settings I will probally remove the middle Stabilize settings so that all the way one direction or another will bring me to Stabilize in a panic. 

I went a slightly different route with my install and instead of the knob shown I used the knob directly above labeled HOV PITCH or some such as The GYRO knob I still wanted for my 250 and my 450.

@any Developer or Moderator, re: Craig Fraser's comment on 8 Oct 2012):  Since I am about to install and use the product, I would like to know if anyone else has similar concerns (and if not, why not).
