Default DX8 question: Does the F.Mode switch save left and right trims settings?

**UPDATE** Nope... doesn't save the L/R Trims. Didn't specify that in the users manual. I'm sure it's a great radio.. but unusable for my purposes now....

Even though the manual I downloaded prior to purchase stated the L and R Trims are saved across F.modes, it really only applies to the four primary trims. Looks like this documentation error is going to cost me $400... Unless Spek wants to add that feature/fix in the next SW release - I've got ver 2.02...

-
Just acquired a DX8 on Friday, mostly for the telemetry for sailplanes.

I set the trims to "F.Mode" in the System setup, but it appears that only the THR, RUD, ELE, and AIL trims are saved for each F.Mode.

The L.Trim and R.Trim setting do not appear to save across F.Mode switch positions.

Is this normal, a bug, or am I doing something wrong?

Hi Roger,

Depending on what you're doing, it may be possible. In Heli mode they can be FM-based. The default for Acro is for them not to be.

I have been in Hawaii for a week, so I'm just starting to catch up on stuff. If you want, send me a PM with details and we can work through it more quickly that way. I only visit RCU once a day at most.
