Question: Can I use my mode 2 Futaba 7c 2.4 as the master and have the slave (my buddy box is a Futaba T4yF) be mode 1?

My friend hovers fine and learned how to fly rc helis in Europe (that's where he's from) on mode 1. He now wants to move to some mild aerobatics (all that i can teach/do anywAy!!).

Thanks!

Yes it will work. Just make sure output signals are assigned to the correct channels to match the mode 1.

One problem. That 4ch buddy box has no gyro channel or idle up. So it won't work for helis. You'll need at least 6ch for the buddy box.

Friends don't encourage friends to fly helis! It can cause part shortages.

Ed you can fly a heli with the 4ch if it is a factory mode 1 4 ch. and you set channels 1-4 to "F" and the rest to "-" in your trainer menu in the 7c. See page 37 of your manual hope this helps

Thanks guys! I've been successfully flying other heli flyers on the slave as long as they wanted to do mode 2. I think you're right Thomas, I probably need the slave to be mode 1. The mode 1 flyer does have an older 72mhz 8channel futaba I'll see if my cord will match up. Thanks!

They do make a square to round cord if it an older radio.
