I have a 9chp radio that I was using over 3yrs with my raptor. I just got a venture with 3 servo swash mixing (120 degree) I was trying to create a different model memory for the venture, it is so frustrating, I could do it so easily with my car radio. I cant seem to understand the instruction and to make things worst I just erased the setting for my raptor that was in there for years. I don't know what I am doing wrong, I know one thing its not as simple like car radios. All I want to do is select model two which I will call venture with the correct swash plate setting for that heli

To select a different model, go into the model select screen, and use the wheel to change to model2. Then press the wheel and hold it til the radio beeps and you'll see a prompt on screen asking "Sure?"

Press the wheel again to say yes to the prompt, and you've just switched to model two. Now do whatever else you want to do.

After you change the model like 'the collective' said, go to the parameter menu(basic) and change to model type to the correct CCPM mixing. It is VERY straight forward I don't know why you're having problems...get a manual

I don't think the manual is completely clear about holding the button down to make the selection "stick"... Furaba's manuals are good for what they are, but they could be better.

Futaba manuals are like watching the old cartoons where the sound track is in english but the mouth is moving in Japanese.

There's a couple of good books on the subject available in the states.

-with the radio on, hold down the (mode/page) button till it beeps and you will be in the setup screen.
-make sure the cursor is highlighted over model.
-next push in the scroll wheel and it will take you to the model selection screen.
-you will see 2 section. the top will be model selection and the bottom will be to copy one model settings to the next. make sure the cursor is over the (select) number which it should be by default at the top.
-now you can turn the wheel and it will scroll through different models. unless you have actually named them, it will only be numbered. 1,2 ect.
-your first heli or raptor should be model (1) so turn the wheel to model (2) and push the wheel in and hold it till you hear the beep. you will see it ask you (sure?). hit the wheel in again to confirm thats what you want to do.
-now you are in a fresh new model. scroll down by hitting the arrow buttons till you get to where it saids name. turn the wheel to change from model 2 to whatever you want to name the model. when you are done you could go back to the main setup screen by hitting (end) once.
-now you can start setting up all your parameters for the new heli and fly.
-dont forget to switch back to the correct model on the radio when you want to fly the other heli.
hope that helps and good luck.

thanks all, I could read, it just wasn't making sense to me. I end up erasing my raptor memory. the computer was occupied so I could not reach to runryder in time to save me. I would like to know what is pos and neg with the jr servo. I am using jr servo with my venture with futaba rx. I used the brown as neg and the yellow as signal. I don't know if that is correct, but the swash don't move anything like the sticks
I cant see why this why system is better than the mccpm, beside the extra torque, its definitely not as straight forward as the mccpm

Superstallion,
If the servos are working then you have them plugged in correctly. Here is something I wrote up for someone else on getting eCCPM servos going the right way...

The first thing you need to do is get all the servos moving in the correct direction for collective. The swash should move up evenly when the collective stick is moved up. Reverse whichever of the three servos you need to make this work correctly.

Now, test aileron. If the swash moves the wrong way, go to the Swash AFR settings and change the aileron mix value from positive to negative or vice versa. Note: When giving aileron input, the rear (or front) servo should not move. If it does, then you have some servos in the wrong channels.

Finally, test the elevator. Same as above, if it moves the wrong way, then change the sign of the elevator setting on the Swash AFR screen. Note: All three servos will move with elevator inputs; the back (or front) more, the front (or rear) ones a little less.

Does that help any?

superstallion,

The thing that's giving you trouble now is that JR servos move opposite Futaba servos for the same stick input. So you need to go into the reversing menu and reverse the channel that the JR servo is plugged into, then things should come around for you.

Hope that helps,

David

I don't think he is mixing servo brands on the swash, so this really doesn't matter.
