I'm still struggling with the 8FG menus, being so different to the 10 and 9 I have been so used to. Any suggestions on a quick way to quickly switch gyro to normal mode to check tail is mechanicaly still OK without going into Tx menus?

Among others, just copy over your chosen flight condition to another keeping everything thing exactly the same EXCEPT put the copy in NORMAL gyro mode. Then you can toggle back and forth. Alternatively, you could bypass the gyro menu and put the gain control on another spare switched channel and toggle it that way. You could even map that channel to your idle up switch.

the way i did it with the 750 was to use the flightmode 3, on the back left switch and copy normal to it. then make gyro's normal in idle 3 and avcs in normal, i can switch between them instantly, works for me. Ron

Please cancel my clearance, I have the field in sight. Got my RW Turbine Waiver, need lottery!

Thank you for the suggestions. I'm used to using switch F, and I don't imagine I'm going to need flightmode 3 any time soon, so I'll stick with the same switch.
