I can't seem to get a -100 to +100 setting range. The adjustment only provides 0 to 100 or 0 to -100 (depending on channels Rev/Nor setting)!

When GV RUD AVCS is selected shouldn't I be able to set between -100 and +100 for both normal and heading hold? Actually I am using the channel for bank switching on my mini V-Bar and need the entire range. It doesn't allow a negative number here and should!

On my previous 14mz I was able to get the full channel output range!

Thanks...

Futaba AVCS mode is actually only half of the channel throw. A modern Futaba transmitter does the translation for you. 0 - 100 is the gyro gain in AVCS mode. If you have a gyro such as the 601/701, the gain shown on the gyro box and the transmitter will agree. The other half of the channel throw is normal mode. So when the transmitter shows normal mode, it has also done that translation for you. Ancient transmitters did not do this - 9Z.

AVCS range
My old 14mz did this so that you could select either heading hold or normal gyro. I hope this is a bug and will be corrected!

There is no reason why the complete range should not be available as it has been before. One direction from neutral HH and the other normal.

You can select on the 14SG AVCS and NORM modes. Just high light it and switch it.

I am confused. What are you trying to do ? The gyro channel is for gyros - Futaba Gyros. Use another channel.

AVCS full range
I need to use the SE condition switch to output CH 5 for the full range of ATV -150 to +150 for my Mikado V-bar's bank selection. It has been convenient to use the gyro function for this before.

Also in other models I also need this range for gyro gain selection from this range also.

Thanks!

NORM not AVCS.....fixed
OK I guess I was using NORM (not AVCS). Now I am able to get full range and also can use the condition switch automatically (by selecting COND in the gyro menu).

Now I have full range available

The quickest way would be to use a different channel, or separate the gyro from channel 5 in the function menu, and set it up for the switch you want to use. Then go to the end points and set them up for what ever you need.

If you want to do it through the gyro menu, it can be done but will require a little more programming. It's pretty involved, so I would have to sit down with a pencil and paper and write down a step by step procedure.

I guess you can't use the COND mode & program another SW for NORM mode, or can you?
