I need to search more information on the toggle switches located at the upper corners of the transmitter.
You appear to be very confident. Sounds like you have an engineering or techical background? In this case you might find knowledge is a poor substitute for experience.
You will now simultaneously be managing different channel assignments, much much quicker movement, no self-stabilizing after each stick input with very little time to think or react. Then add large high speed rotating blades . . .
I had lots of flights on fixed pitch such as Solo Pro 260/328/228, F45 and v911. My first flight with the v929 quad, which also is quick and non self-stabilizing, was a quite an eye opener - manageable and relatively safe and crash resistant, but surprising different. Once I get totally comfortable with the quad I will get a small cp.
