Mode 1, Mode 2? Pooh pooh!
I have the German branded version
of the i6, also a Spektrum D6 and a Graupner MC-10 40Meg
set (for my subs😉).
I use a simple convention on all of them.
Throttle and rudder are both on the right stick
, channels 1 and 2 respectively.
ALL aircraft special functions and mixers
are switched OFF.
Connect ESC and rudder servo to the corresponding outputs at the RX and away you go.
Regardless of which Mode the TX thinks it is.
This means that I can control the boat with one thumb.
Leaving the other hand free for the special function pots and switches, or the Bierkrug😋
I sail at the Ostpark Lake here in Munich, sitting at the edge of the Biergarten on the bank of the lake 😁 See pic of my usual corner.
My TX can be set to either Mode 1 or 2. I left in Mode 1.
Mode 1 or mode 2 doesn't matter, unless some sets have the self centring stick
built in on the left. Even these can be swapped over to the right.
Or use the left thumb for navigating!
Only minor irritation with this setup; on all the modern 2.4Gig sets designed for the fly boys, is that on switch-on the TX still demands that the throttle,which it 'thinks' is left stick
, is pulled down or it won't boot ☹️ Safety feature for aircraft motors! No chopped fingers😮
Haven't found a way to switch this off yet. It's embedded in the firmware.🤔
