so, following my post here:

and the tutorial here:

things didnt really didnt seem to fit when trying to set up my radio for six flight modes.  after a couple of days blundering through mixes and comments from other users i finally started to understand what the different settings were doing, and found that half of what i had done was unnecessary.

once i had a clear idea of what changed with each option it was a case of a few minutes getting everything just right.  as promised, a video.

Excellent, very useful. You can record longer video and put at

thanks for the positive comments.

there just seems to be a great deal of confusion over setting this up (and the little quirks of the futaba interface definitely adds to that), so when i finally worked out how simple it really was i thought i should share that.  i know there are a lot of us using this radio, as its reasonably priced with a decent feature set for arducopter.

i actually like vimeo a lot, i dont know why when it came to making this account i went straight to youtube without even thinking.  ill make a vimeo account for HD stuff :)

YouTube should handle longer video and HD without trouble.
