I know the feeling Lousy wind & rain here for the past two weeks, so haven't been able to fly either - but reminded myself not to moan after reading about the terrible storms you guys have been experiencing of late.

No, that's why I said right handed (i.e. the majority) would do better with primary controls on the right. For left handers mode 3 makes sense, but the problem there is finding an instructor that flies that way. With modern buddy boxing systems maybe not such a problem any more because the different transmitters can be configured differently.

As you say, nowadays the instructor's radio can be different to the student's. The biggest problem is finding radios that either support all 4 modes (hardly ever nowadays), or radios that are easily converted. As I said in an earlier post, I converted the main sticks on the X6, but the trims and displays remain wrong for me.

WLtoys, Futaba, Walkera radios cover mode 1~4.

Not always: I've got the XK K6 (WL toys) that came with my K130, that's only 1 & 2. Also, my Futaba 9ZAP, that only covers 1 & 2 officially, although that is versatile enough that you can change the stick allocations in software, but it still only "thinks" it's in 1 or 2.

All my FrSky transmitters can be set to what ever mode I like. I fly Mode 1 with fixed wing and Mode 2 with helicopters. Same with the Multiplex Royal EVO transmitters.

You forgot to mention the 10 channel reed systems and the galloping ghost analog proportional systems.

But you don't mention modes 3 &4? We were talking about how few transmitters support the less well-known modes (3 & 4)

If you have a transmitter that supports Mode 1 and Mode 2 (assignable throttle and elevator) it will also support Mode 3 and Mode 4 automatically. The only difference with Mode 3 and 4 is that aileron is on the left stick. Usually when the transmitter software supports an assignable channel to each stick you can pretty much configure it as any Mode.

Therefore the FrSky transmitters and the Multiplex Royal EVO transmitters will be able to configured as Mode 1,2,3,4. I believe the Jeti transmitters are also assignable although I have not read through their entire manual.

The issue here is how flexible is the transmitter software. Some transmitter programs are fairly restrictive with lots of pre-set mixing. Transmitters like the Multiplex, FrSky and Jeti are design to be very flexible.

Unfortunately it's not always that easy, especially with micro helis. If the servos are built into the receiver board (eg Solo Pro 100), you can't just swap the servo plugs round. And, as you also say, as radios are getting more complex nowadays, they often have mixes that involve specific named channels that you can't re-assign.

Jumper T8SG lite


Hi,

The Jumper T8SG lite admits any mode changes, mode 2 to mode 1,3,4.

[TIPS] JumperT8SG Lite をMode1にする! (9 min 29 sec)


(in Japanese, but you can easily understand the method by this movie).

My Jumper T8SG v2.0 plus, which covers many protocols, will soon arrive from Banggood. Then I will report the mode change, mode 2 to mode 1,3,4.

Hi , my Jumper TS8SG v2.0 plus arrived one week ago . But, soon, it broke. According to some guy in Deviation forum, the USB memory inside needs to be reformatted. Since I do not know anything about deviation software, it took me 3~4 days for (software) repairing.

The method of repairing is very simple; just connect the transmitter (it is in a USB memory mode) with a Windows PC and format it (FAT format) slowly (not quick ), and copy a new software by the mouse drag.

The conversion of mode 2 transmitter to mode 1,3,4 is very easy by transmitter software setting. However, when the conversion to mode 1, 3, one must exchange the left and right stick boxes with each other though such a work is also easy as in the video above.

TS8SG v2.0 plus covers many important helicopter protocols, Walkera DEVO, Walkera2801, 2601, 2401, DSM2, DSMX, Futaba S-FHSS, Hisky, Esky150, ESky, etc..
