I have experianced this glitch and it can trash your helicopter so watch out. Here is a post from Skookum.
NOTICE

Several users with futaba radios have reported glitches when using futaba high-speed external receivers and the bank/gain channel. We've confirmed this bug, and narrowed down when it happens and how to avoid it.

The interference occurs between the aileron channel and the bank/gain channel (plugged into the EXT-LED port). For now the work-around is to first set your radio ATV's (endpoints) to their maximum value, so the gain inputs read 100% on the GUI. Then select "lock gains" on both cyclic and both tail banks, and use locked gain values. This will avoid the problem and still allow you to bank-switch.

We apologize for this problem. However we already have it solved here, and that fix will be released in our September firmware update, which will also include s-bus compatibility.

I have a 7-channel receiver which does not have the high speed mode and I have had no problems.

Skookum also said that there would be another update out in September to solve that problem and add Futaba S-Bus support.
