Default Trainer function 7CH

I was trying to use the Trainer function today to give my grandchildren a bit of flying experience. I know it works as we have used it before, but i must have altered something as I couldn't get it working.

I went to the Trainer menu and changed INH to OFF. I thought that when you activate the function (by pulling on the spring loaded switch H) the OFF would turn into ON and the slave tranny would take over. Neither happened and I tried all the other switches in case I had somehow re-assigned the function. I also checked Para in case switch H had been re-assigned.

I don't remember fiddling with any of the various setting/ mixes/etc for that model channel as it is reserved for the electric Wot4 I use with them. But it is some time since I last used that model and age is taking its toll on my memory.

Any suggestions please

When there is no student transmitter connected to the master transmitter, the trainer system will not turn on. Once the student transmitter is connected, then the "OFF" with change to "ON" when the trainer switch is pulled. Please see page 37 of the 7C manual.

Thanks for that info which has caused me to look more deeply into the problem.

I noticed that the connection to the slave seemed a bit intermittent and the slave display kept going off unless I kept pressing on the plug to keep it in the back of my tranny - slightly hard to do when flying!.

Anyway on closer examination, I saw that the buddy lead was damaged - one of the pins was slight pushed back into the plug and obviously wasn't making a proper connection.

Thanks again
