what controls do what on your Tx. I think mine are wrong.

Here's the current configuration.



The manual says the controls for the servoes should be on the left and the rotors on the right. But I seem to have 2 switched around.
There are 5 dipswitches on the back of the Tx, I think its just a matter of changing the config on that to get it to work.
At the moment I beleive only 4 is on. Or off, I cant remember which position is on. Does anyone know the best config to use?

You are talking about modes. The switches on the back will be for servo reversing. What you need to do is find out if the modes can be changed on your model, by what I can work out. Take a read of this article and see if that is what you mean.

Where are you ?...different countries have kind a "defacto" standard for modes

More importanly, which stick has the throttle ? ie the one that doesn't self centre ?

I fly mode 2, which is

Throttle and rudder on left stick
Elevator (vertical axis) and Aileron (horizontal axis) on right.

Mode 2 is what most people fly in the US
Mode 1 is what most people fly in Australia (except me of course)

Neither is better...just different

The right hand one controls the throttle.

Theres a guy here at work who said he can change them around. So Im gonna move them so I control the two servos on the left. And the two motors on the right

it sounds like you are setup for mode 1.

What you are talking about is called mode 3 I think.

you should just be able to do what you want by swapping around where the servo leads plug into the receiver.

Can you swap a servo for the tail motor connection on the receiver without any problems?

yep..that should be fine. It's just the main motor that is important. You "may" need to muck around with servo reversing to make sure it's moving the right way.

You should prob aim for either Mode 1 or Mode 2.

Ive speaking and observing LOTs of people at Indoor flight nights in Adel. ALmost all Fixed wing flyers fly Mode 1 ie throttle on the RH stick. Prob about 80% of Heli pilots fly Mode 1 in AUS also. I did see a few Heli operators running Mode 2 which is how I fly. I've yet to fly any R/C fixed wings but want to get a fixed wing trainer also. Will prob fly that Mode 2 also ?

I am like Ozzie..I prefer Mode 2 for Heli..It seems to be more natural for me, but then I use Inverted mouse in First person shooters (PC games) which some people think wierd.

If you plan on asking for people to help you / use buddy (trainer box) then you need to make sure you learn the "normal mode" otherwise do whatever you want, but seriosuly choose either Mode 1 or 2 ( not 3 or 4 or some other wacky combo ;-) )
