Default Futaba T7CAP Timer: Doesn't seem to work???

Hello,

I just bought a T7CAP. I'm setting it up for a trainer and I want the timer to work off the throttle. I followed the example in the manual but it still doesn't seem to work. The settings I used were:
Timer: INH (should this be set to off?)
Time: 10:00
Mode: Down
SW: 3 up arrow

I set the stick to 1/4 throttle and pressed the disk until it beeped. Got out to the main screen and moved the stick up and down, but the timer isn't starting.



Any suggestions?

Thanks,



Chris

And after you read the above referenced thread, know that INH means the function in INHibited. You need to change it to OFF. Then set the throttle stick activation point. Check if the OFF goes to ON when moving the stick. Then check the aileron ATV settings to see if you have the software bug.

Hey Fritz,

Yep, I finally found INH in the glossary of the manual. Tried it again last night and it works fine.

Thanks,


Chris
