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.

On theFutaba T10CG
@John and Craig, there is a "debounce" logic in the mode switch control, such that the new mode is not set until it has been out of the old mode for at least 1/3rd of a second. This may not be optimized for a knob, but it's better than nothing. Basically, when you change modes, make sure you are in your intended mode before 1/3rd of a second has passed. If you move the knob too slowly, you will get a unintended mode in the middle.
Nobody has tried this with a Futaba 6EX?
Futaba FX 40
function SUPER :)
There was a short period to wait until we ship,
now they are in stock and no problems. - If you place your order now we are shipping immediately.
@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).
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.
Ted, will make it usually in 10-20 days.
Hein - you receive the soldering schematics physically with your kit !
(2) Turnigy 9x's running er9x. Works fine.
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?
Did anyone have install this on Spektrum DX7?
