Présentation de l'éditeur
A detailed reference section explains and illustrates the use of each of the transmitter’s features. For ease of cross-reference it mirrors the order of the Futaba manual. Finding information is easy with direct links from the contents pages and the ability to search.
The well-illustrated guides explain “why” rather than just “how”. They provide clear instructions on how to prepare a model for flight. In the process, they should help the novice gain an understanding of the principles behind the programming of this very versatile radio and develop the confidence to explore its more complex features.
Now updated to cover Futaba’s 14SG software V 7.0 release.
In addition to the detailed reference section the appendices cover the following topics :-
Getting started on the Futaba 14SG - Programming a trainer aeroplane
Programming a four-servo wing electric glider
A trimmable trailing edge for glider programming
Using virtual and surplus channels
Servo sequencing – A retractable undercarriage with separate doors
Simple motor setup for electric models
Synchronising twin I/C engines
Differential Engine Control of Twin-Engine Models
Setting up Flying Wings
Slow deployment of two-stage flaps using the Airbrake Mix (Airplane Model type).
Slowing a Function – Slow deployment of two-stage flaps
Using the alternate switch feature – A single-channel emulator
Adapting Functions – A simple smoke mix
Bookmarking the telemetry data log
Much of the content is equally applicable to helicopters but please note that those features which relate solely to helicopter programming are not covered. Although the 14SG includes additional features, notably telemetry, the programming of the Futaba 8FG(S) is almost identical. All the worked examples apply equally to both radios. Finally, those considering buying one of these radios may find the book provides a useful insight into their capabilities for a very modest investment.
