I have a Futaba 14SG. I have channel 7 on my radio set to Aux1 to SG switch.
Bank 0 I have Rescue.
Bank 1 I have Stabilisation mode.
Bank 2 Disabled.

Also have IDLEUP3 to switch SH.

So if I fly with switch SG down, which is Bank 0 with Rescue, doesn't
that mean that rescue is on all the time?

or do I fly with SG switch up to Bank 2 Disable and than hit switch SH when Rescue is needed?
Thanks

Rescue mode has nothing to do with banks if you are talking about the Spirit FBL unit.
The Spirit recognizes 60% gain in normal mode (as opposed to + gains in heading hold mode) as the need for rescue.
Banks are just a way of fine tuning 3 different flight modes.

This was the response given by Thomas from Spirit on their website.

"This depends on when you are switching to negative gyro gain.
Only negative gyro gain can activate special function thus as the rescue or stabilisation modes."

"You have to be always in Bank 1 if you want to be able to activate the rescue."

"Maybe you want to check our Futaba guide where you can find necessary information."

What I was confused about was that Switch SG can be left in Bank1 with Rescue but rescue is only activated when I hit the SH switch momentarily which is a spring loaded switch.

Correct, rescue is only activated on the spring switch if setup that way.
