Ha ha your right there. Gyros are probably the ultimate test of R C IMHO. To build and fly!

I think the move into Turbines.

No matter how good the rep is for the Taranis I found it hard to justify flying the most expensive model I'd ever owned with the cheapest radio system I've ever owned!

I'm sure the Taranis would have been fine bit I feel safer with Futaba.

Plus after 12 months of Taranis ownership and a week of Futaba, I already find the Futaba easier to program!!

Yes. In the Aileron Differential menu select each Condition in turn and enter the values of your choice. You can also set different fine tuning controls, modes and rates for each Condition if you wish.

Thanks for the link BigTradioman...

This looks to be a Kindle book.... does the purchase price include a downloadable copy?

Must I use an app to read it on my pc and can I print out hard copy of selected pages?

Sorry for all the questions but I'm not a Kindle user...

The purchase price allows you to download copies of the book to all devices which are linked to your Amazon account (Kindles, PCs, Macs, tablets, smartphones etc). The book is updated each time Futaba release a firmware upgrade and the revised version is available free of charge to existing owners of the book.

To read the book on any device other than a Kindle you need to use an App. These are available free from Amazon.

This is an e-book. There is no printed copy and no easy way to print selected sections.

Awesome work to get a different angle from the Futaba manual. They should really sponsor you a radio Btw, are you into telemetry? I might sponsor you some units

Cheers, Thomas

Glad you find it helpful.

I have tinkered with telemetry for the sake of completeness when writing but have little use for it when flying. I mainly do I/C scale and aerobatics. Thanks anyway.

I have two 7008 receivers in my plane. I have one set to mode c to allow channel 9 through channel 16 to be used. I ran out of channels and needed a few extra for my electric starter and choke. I use HV servos so I could not use the SBD-1 cable because it is not high voltage. I ordered the Robbe Futaba SBD-4 expander from Germany but it takes a few weeks to come in. I am going to use dual receivers for a short term fix. I would like to know how close the receivers can be to each other with causing interference. I have them on opposite sides on my fuselage. One receiver has antennas pointing forward and the other is reversed with antennas pointing to the tail. Any advice would be great.

I'd make sure that none of the 4 antennas parallel each other. In other words, pick 4 distinct different directions for them. Sounds like they are placed fine. So if I understand you correctly, you have used all 16 channels available using the servo ports on both receivers??

Yes I have all available channels that I can use. Mode A on receiver 1 and mode c on receiver 2. The with of the fuse is about 8 inches The receivers are on the left side and right side. They are facing in oposite directions with the antenna at 90 degrees. One antenna straight forward the other 90 degree. The other receiver antennas are facing toward the tail with the same 90 degree orientation. It looks good but I just thought I would throw it out there. This is my first dual set up.
