Programming MPC MC 4000
Hi everyone ,
Here is my dilemma :
During the motor phase in F5J, I will wish to control the motor of my glider on the throttle command , which is also used for butterfly . What I want is that flight phase power ( as they like to say in MPX ) is no longer used by the butterflies but to handle the motor, and once one of the other flight phases are engaged ( or rather when it disengaged ) all back to normal and the throttle command again become the butterfly command ...
I tried to assign the menu items commands, but of course the 4000 does not take into account changes of items commands according to the phases of flights ...
In any case, thank you.
I do not know if what I say is clear (English is not my native language) , so if this is not the case let me know . But I hope that what I 'd like to do is possible ( there are so many possibilities with this radio) because it will avoid me having to install an easily accessible rotary potentiometer (for the moment the throttle is on the linear potentiometer) ...

You need to programme the changes in the SERVO menu not in the CONTROL (command) menu.
Set up a mixer for the throttle "servo" with 1 input from the throttle stick, and 1 fixed value that ensures the motor stays off.
In the servo menu select the throttle servo and use the flight phase switch to turn the throttle command off and turn on the fixed value as required. Your flight phase switch can now disable the throttle stick and leave the motor OFF.
You have to do something similar with each of the wing servos that are used for butterfly. They already have a mixer setup, so in that mixer use the flight phase switch to turn off the butterfly input for the flight phase when you need to use throttle. You may need to add a fixed vale to the mixers to ensure the servos stay at the correct position with the butterfly input turned off.
Hope this helps, if not have a look here for some extra setup help.

Why not put the motor control on a switch, spring loaded to OFF, and keep the "butterfly" control on the "throttle" stick? That way you do not have to be concerned about flight modes. Simplicity is always safer.
