Is in the "Cruise altitude" that you define your RTH pre set altitude?
And about the radius? Can also be defined or is it fixed?

I tried to set rx input type to combined PPM then entered PPM config, set to PPM1 but the value of each chanel won't change and I can't make the controls move.
Controls work fine if I select regular Rx input type.
Is that normal?

I don't think so.

You need PPM out on the receiver. Most general use RC receivers do not have this.

Thanks, that's why it didn't work.
I have bought a used T9CP, that one will work.

Yes, cruise altitude does define the RTH preset altitude.
The actual radius is predefined to 0, so the autopilot should hit "home" as close as possible and keep flying on eight figure patterns around it.

So how many channels are needed? The FAQ says only 1.

Let's say 3 ch plane (elev/aileron/throttle)

I got 3 channels left for my dx6i

1 would go to OSD. What can the rest 2 be used for?

And how can I set the autopilot and osd menu thing? How do you guys assign them?

You need one Ch for the osd with a 3 pos switch to control the flight modes and change screens. The other 2 would be to control pan and tilt of the camera if you want.

Hmm.. Whatiff the tx being used (like my dx6i) doesn't have a 3 pos switch?

Maybe I'll get a dedicated turnigy 9x, I *think* that has a 3 pos switch.

Do you guys do pan and tilt btw?

Left stick controls throttle (and maybe rudder if equipped) and the right control elev/aileron

How do you pan and tilt?

Like the turnigy 9x has these little knobs up top. Are they another channel? Those can be good for pan and tilt.

I use a 9x and love it. It has a three position switch.
I don't know what you can and cant assign with the default firmware because I use er9x firmware.

Most people who use pan/tilt with 4 channel planes are using head trackers probably. But yes, you can use the knobs for pan tilt. It's a little awkward though.
