Default RE: Futaba 12 FG Dummies Guide

ORIGINAL: malcolmholt

I share the views expressed here about the inadequacy of the 8FG manual. As a result of many hours of experimentation and cross-checking with the servo monitor I feel that I am beginning to understand the radio. In the process I have kept a brief set of notes as an aide-memoire for when I need a particular feature in the future. It is possible that these could be of use to fellow strugglers. Accordingly I attach a copy here. They make no pretence to be a proper user guide (that is Futaba’s responsibility) but hopefully they may be of some help if read in conjunction with the manual. If not, they have cost you nothing. I only fly fixed wing so there is no reference to those features specific to helicopters.

Thank you for posting your notes. They are the best written, most thorough and easiest to understand instructions on how/why to program the 8FG, 12FG, 12Z and 14MZ. Proof that it can be done. Nicely done and thank you again sir.
