First Futaba Radio~ Help Please...10CHG
Alright, I am setting up this 70" Extra and it is also the first plane to be programmed on my new 10CHG tx.
This is my first Futaba tx and I have completely stumbled through setting up this aircraft. Specifically, I am clueless as to some of the channels labeled on the R6014HS rx.
Could someone tell me what "Ch. B" is for? It is positioned between the 3rd and 4th channels.
Also, are ports "DG1" and DG2" battery inputs?
Lastly, my Extra uses 5 digital servos (2 on Elevator, 2 on Aileron, 1 on Rudder) and I want to utilize the high speed capability of this rx, how should I wire this? I know it is a complete noob thing to ask, but I am in need of a wiring diagram ...
I will be using a Fromeco Sahara, and it is the first time I have ever used a regulator. It has one JR lead and one Deans lead coming out of one side, the opposite side has 2 JR leads out, a third side has another JR lead going out. A diagram for this would also be very helpful
Thanks RCG! Any guidance is appreciated!

had the 11x DSMX... I know all the different brands have their flaws, but after having radio troubles with my DSM2 rx's I just switched to Futaba rather than upgrade all my rx's to DSMX.
I realize there are far less Futabas on the market (in comparison to Spektrum/JR) and I am certain there is a relationship, but it does not seem lockouts/brownouts are occurring as often with Futaba... the terms are commonplace in Spektrum threads.
...any insight into radio programming/setup with regards to my original post?

"B" is a dedicated battery port.
DG1 and DG2 are actually channels 13 and 14. They're labeled DG1 and DG2 since channel 13 and 14 are only on/off channels and designated DG1 and DG2 on the 14 channel Futaba radios.
Yes, like any servo connector on a receiver, they can be used for a battery connection. Using This receiver with the 10C, you'll have no problem running multiple power connections from the Fromeco regulator. As far as hooking up the Fromeco, I can't help there, as I've never used one.
OK, the high speed mode can be used, as long as all servos on channels 1-6 are digital. If you're using an analog servo on throttle, then you'll have to reassign throttle to a channel, other than channel 3. I believe the 10C has some ability to remap channels and functions, but I don't know the 10C programming, so maybe someone with a 10C will chime in.

Thanks a million Pilot Pete!
So I have 2 battery leads coming out of the regulator, one of those goes in "B" the other can go into any unused channel (including non-digital channels of 7-14)? Does that sound right?
In regards to throttle servo, this is going to be electric powered. I am using an ICE esc with the Fromeco reg.
I too would have thought someone with a 10c would have spoken up by now; regardless I really appreciate your breakdown of the rx channels. It gets me one step closer to a maiden this week

Best of luck with the maiden.
Yes all servo connections on receivers are just a power bus for the positive and negative connections, so you will have a lot of open slots to choose from

I have the same set up but for a gasser. I used a digital servo for the throttle to use the high speed setting. Setup using 2 ail servo's from the book but for the elevator you will need to mix either channel 5 or 6 for the other elevator slaved to channel 2. Can't remember which one, one is for 2nd aileron (in book) so the other would be for the mix and second elevator. Normal spot is channel 7 or 8 but to use high speed you need it in 1 to 6. That is how I did it.
Make sure you check on the throttle channel excepting an ESC instead of a digital throttle servo for high speed mode just to make sure it will work, it should.
Sorry can't help you more, don't have plane or book here and just my bad memory.
I have a 2 battery set up and use slot B for one and the DG slot for another. Any open one will work fine.
Goggle is your friend. LOL Say is works with brushless ESC's.
Thank you for purchasing the R6008HS,
R6014HS FASST receiver. These models have
two(2) operation mode as shown below.
Normal mode/High Speed mode
The "Normal mode" accepts any type of servos
or the peripherals as the frame rate of the output
is 14ms. The "High Speed mode" only accept
the digital servos for outputs from 1ch to 6ch,
including BLS series, and most peripheral
equipments such as the gyros or brushless ESCs.
The frame rate of the outputs is 7ms. The outputs
for other channels indicated below allow to use
any type of servos as the frame rate of these
outputs are still 14ms on the High Speed mode.
R6008HS - 7ch and 8ch
R6014HS - 7ch to 12ch, DG1, DG2
The R6008HS, R6014HS are compatible with

Well I got the Regulator installed properly and also set up the mix to slave Ele2 to the Ele1.
I guess what I am really trying to figure out, is if there is any sort of "servo matching" features that would allow me to match both elevator servos in the programming of the 10c. My 11x had a feature called ServoSync and would ensure that both servos were moving exactly the same as one another... I was really hoping the 10c had something like this.

I was just clarifying in the bold type that to use the high speed mode of the Rx you can use an ESC as in a electric set up in channel 3 as well as a digital servo opening a carb in a gasser set up. I have a gasser in mine and knew a digital on Channel 3 was required but wanted to confirm an ESC would work as well. Just answering my own question out loud so others seeing this thread would have the answer as well.
As to servo sync once I mixed the two elevators together I don't remember a lot of playing with the servo's other then possible subtrim and a little endpoints adj. There is something, link I think, that you use to allow both surfaces to trim together when using the trim switches while flying.
|Feb 23, 2012, 04:00 PM|
Oh, I gotcha. Yea, I was able to figure out changing the mode to high speed and was very impressed how quick these surfaces can move!
Once I get a throw meter, I should be able to fine tune those endpoints a bit...
