| Logical Switch with Digital and Linear Behavior||This programming sample shows how to use a logical switch as a digital switch (on/off) on CH8, which linearly controls CH9. It is activated with SW5 and will also trigger a voice notice set in the Control Notice menu. You can change the behavior and timing in the Logical Switch menu.|
|Altitude Based Sensor Switch||This sample model file uses a sensor switch to automatically activate the airbrakes (Crow/Butterfly) when the altitude of 100ft is exceeded. The sensor switch behaves digitally up to the altitude threshold (100ft). It becomes linear after the threshold value outputting a linear signal that increases or decreases depending on how much overrun there is past the threshold. |
The altitude threshold value is set in the Sensor Switch menu. The sensor switch activates a phase called Airbrake which will deploy the airbrakes (aileron and flaps) to a preset configuration so that the airplane will slow down and start losing altitude.
The sensor switch will disengage below the threshold value. The pilot always has complete control. You will need an altitude sensor such as a Vario or GPS module to make use of this powerful feature. With some changes, you can adapt this model and automatically deploy, for example, flaps, rescue modes, or landing gear based on altitude or make gyro sensitivity adjustments based on speed.
|F5J Sailplane Model||This sample model can be used as a starting point for any motorized sailplane, such as F5J or any other sailplane model with a motor. |
The throttle is controlled with LV1. Note that there is a master throttle cut active, which can be disabled by turning DV3 clockwise, after which you can arm the motor with switch SW6. This provides double safety for accidental motor operation.
The throttle stick is used for Butterfly/Crow, which activates the landing phase and disables the motor. You can change the amount of crow in the Air Brake menu.
The model has four phases (Cruise. Speed. Thermal, and Landing). You can view and change those in the Phase Set menu. Switch SW1 controls each phase, while ST1 (throttle) controls the landing phase.
Each phase has a different trim setting. The Phase Trim menu controls the trim settings for each control surface and phase.
If you need to make individual control surface changes due to geometry issues, we recommend resolving these in the Servo Set menu using the servo balancer. Alternatively, you can use an “after cross mixer” link type in the Free Mixer menu. This model has those specialty mixers already programmed but not active.
The model also has an Aileron to Rudder mix active, which can be changed in the Wing/Tail menu.
Check the User Notice and Voice Notice menu for the preset telemetry alarms and voice notices, which can be activated and cycled with the DT7 buttons.
Two timers are active. Timer one records the total flight time from when SW6 is activated. Timer two only records the actual motor run-time and is started with LV1.
After loading the model to your radio, we recommend you observe all the controls using the Servo View menu. Do not connect any servos until you understand the inner working of this sample model.
