Doesn't bother us, as there's very little in the manual that is actually useful. It's all good here.

Maybe you're not pressing enter? Most changes on the 8FG are immediate but name changes require you to press enter. This has nailed me many times, usually after I've spent 10 minutes painstakingly entering a particularly complex name.

Is it a know problem with the 8FG naming models?
Try move to after the last character, o in your case, then move to the DELETE and hit RTN a couple of times; you probably have entered some spaces into it all. Then you should be able to enter the x and dont forget to ENTER before leaving the naming menu.

Stands for Variable Pitch Propeller / Throttle curve #1.

It is there in case you fly one of those fancy foamies they fly in ETOC or other VPP enabled aircraft. If you don't have a VPP just go into the function menu and un-assign it, all the inherent mixing will be ignored.

The 10C doesn't have ball bearing gimbles like the 8fg does
