Does anybody know, before I take the back off my 14SG. Can the stock tension/springs be adjusted ?. Can't find anything in either Malcolms book or the manual ??

Cheers

No need to remove the back. Pages 17 and 18 of the Futaba manual explain how to adjust stick tension.

Basic installation and mechanical matters such as this are pretty well covered in the official manual so, as the title indicates, my book deals specifically with programming.

I tried to be “clever” and bought a 6ch R7006sb receiver a while back for my IC Acrowot plane to save £20 or so over my usual £100 R7008sb . However I now think it was a mistake . I want to use flapperons and the menu on the 14SG transmitter with the new receiver does not have the camber function I normally use. The plane has two elevator servos. Are flapperons possible using the R7006 receiver paired to a 14SG, or is there something I’m missing? Any help much appreciated!

Check the Model Type menu. What is the wing type setting?

I suspected that might be the case. Glad you find the book helpful.

Yes I certainly do it’s a great book and as you probably realise I’m no technical expert! But your book has cleared up lots of every day questions I had that were not covered in the manual in plain English. It certainly makes me use and understand a lot more of the Futaba functionality...

Its also really kind that you also take the time to answer questions on here.
