programming for smoke.

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I've always used Futaba radio in the 72 Mhz frequency, after losing my Extreme Flight Yak, due to a possible frequency conflict, I've decided to switch to 2.4
I have a 8 FG Super by Futaba, if someone can help I would like to know step by step how to program the radio so that the throttle would be the master channel, smoke should only come in past half throttle the rate of smoke increasing with the encrease in throttle. Also the smoke to be controlled by a switch. Any help would be appreciated. Frank.

Re: programming for smoke.

Goto page 84-85 in the manual

pick new program mix
set master to throttle
set slave to smoke pump channel

turn it on, and select switch you want to activate it

set it for 5 point curve mode

put in curve something like this;

1=100 (max smoke)
2=0 (half smoke)
3=-100 (no smoke)
4=-100 (no smoke)
5=-100 (no smoke)

your pump should be stopped from idle to mid throttle and be full out a full throttle. Note this assumes that your pump stops at -100%. You may have to change the travel adjust on the smoke channel so i stops. It also assumes your throttle is going from -100 to +100. It probably isn't.

you can play with the amount of smoke, by changing points 4 and 5 to control the flow. keep 4 at half of 5 and all others a zero, and it should give you what you want.
This hobby is a Slickness!
