Hi ThermalBoy,

This function does work on all model types. To access this simply go into your Linkage Menu, scroll until you see the T1-T4 Setting. Highlight this with your cursor and enter the function. In the very bottom right hand side of your screen you will see INH, select this tap the RTN button once, and you can activate this feature.

There is one, as far as I can tell, undocumented feature of this set that I like a lot. The problem is it only appears to work on certain types of models !

Can anyone shed any light on this particular feature and why it only works with certain model types? It certainly works on a full moulded 6 servo model setup with Vtail. If you tap the Return button to get into the Large Timer Screen you will notice that the screen shows the four main trims. Ok lets assume in order to get it to fly straight you have had to put in say 30% aileron trim on the trim switch. If you now use the scroll wheel to highlight the aileron trim graphic and then press the Return button for 2 seconds the trim recentres itself whilst leaving the aileron at the original 30 % trim position. ie it resets the trim to neutral so that you can then have equal movement either way on the trim switch again...nice !

Any further info would be appreciated.
