    Hi Cash.
    I am trying to setup a set of test servos with the rx and an esc and motor before I try fitting it to the boat.
    To prove my wiring is correct first.
    I will post the results at the end of the week.
    Cheers Colin.
    Fair winds and calm waters, COLIN.

    Thanks Cash.
    I've got the module but no instructions or information, even frsky website can't help. So if you have the info I need I would be very grateful.
    Cheers Colin.

    Re- Thanks JB. It's getting clearer now what is possible
    That's good then Colin, didn't know you'd had Helis, - only just noticed the heli system label on your TX (I was right for once!) so the manual might bring you back some memories from the cobweb closet ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I think lots of us old codgers have wobbly creaky hand syndrome, my grip's going (had 1 carpal tunnel op) and I'm constantly picking stuff up off the floor while working, (might as well work down there, it would save grovelling around looking for small screws etc๐Ÿ˜ ) But we're still alive and making stuff!๐Ÿ˜Š Bonus!

    Colin, do you presently have a Frsky module for your Futaba? If not, I might still have the one I was using in my Hitec optic 6. They use the same module. Let me know Iโ€™ll look for it, canโ€™t remember if I gave it to a buddy or not, but Iโ€™ll check

    Wrong about the Heli bit for the PDF, not sure about yours but read that yours is a heli radio (assumed the manual was- didn't read it first,). Doesn't matter, either way you should get a good number of functions with a bit of fiddling.

    Thanks JB. It's getting clearer now what is possible. Although at 70 re-learning about rc multi channel set ups is a bit daunting. I was lucky enough to have my flying systems set up for me, but that was quite a while ago. In fact I gave up flying as I scrapped near on ยฃ800 worth of helicopters as my arthritis started to affect my hands, so steady flight wasn't very good and landing almost impossible.
    Cheers Colin.

    This might help Colin, same series. These (and yours) are Heli radios and so old not even listed in the Futaba obsolete section. I have 2 even older FP-T5NLH non computer heli radios I used for my planes before going 2.4. You can use the heli radios for anything but the rotary knobs are for trimming pitch and tail rotor, throttle etc and work together with other switches. You can probably use the normal std functions plus throttle hold, throttle cut (which also works in conjunction with the rotary trims and a few others but it might take a bit of mucking around to get them to do what you want.
    I used a few functions for things they weren't meant for in the planes, like throttle cut, idle up (toggle sw turns on pre set throttle hold level- for auto rotation). This manual should give you a rough idea and the rest will be suck and see.
