While trying to plug in my 3 servos for my Airwolf retracts, it seems that I cannot use the " end point" adjustments on channels 9 & 10.
I've read the manual and cannot find anything in that would tell me how to adjust the end points on 9 & 10.
My question is. Am I missing something in the manual or can I not adjust the end points on these 2 channels, and if that's the case, what other options are there ? I tryed a "Y" cord off of channel 8 and the servos do nothing.
Thanks

With the 10C, channels 9 and 10 are switch channels ON/OFF only.

Doug.

P.S. but if you're using retract servos, then these two channels are fine for that. you don't need to set end points with retract servos.

I'm using Hitec 5245mg servo. A regular retract servo only gives me a certian operating angle which cannot be adjusted.I need to control the end points so as not to burn out the servo.

Ok, if you want to use those servos then you can use channel 7 and assign it to any switch you like.

Here is my humble opinion: I also own the Airwolf 50, I try using regular servos for retracts but I ended up getting three retract servos, right away my issues went away (unable to lock open or close). If you look at the instruction for the retracts, I think they call for retract servos.
I used 3 Hitec HS 75 retract servos, a y adapter and a reversing y adapter for the rear retract servos, there's other ways to do it but this was the easiest way for me.

On channels 9 and 10 (ON/OFF) you can use them for retracts, on board glo system or lights.

Hope this helps,
Doug.

Interesting. I have just recently been in the market for an upgrade from my 7C and been doing some homework and reading something like this puzzles me. So a guy spends the extra dollars on a few more features and extra channels for exactly what? The 8FG will basically accommodate the same setup with 8 proportional +2 extra channels in a much more appealing price. Now, I'm not bashing the 10C.. I'm just trying to convince myself if its even worth saving for the 10CG in which I'm also debating on purchasing. It appears that after you account for the larger receiver that comes with the 10CG, thats where the price difference comes into play. Other than that, doesn't make sense. Somebody fill me in on what I'm missing here please.

I fly Futaba too so I'm not a hater, but the x9303 is 9 fully proportional channels.

The +1 or +2 channels are great for lights or if you're using retract servos, but not much else.
