Title: Newbee question
Post by: bvuaemal on November 14, 2010, 11:32:22 PM
Hi All,
A  Newbee question (we have to start somewhere).
 I bought a Diamond 2500 glider and am now trying out the FSM simulator.
 I have a mode 2 transmitter. 

I am now confused what the control stick actions are for two reasons:
1- I had to reverse some of the control stick actions in FSM
2  Anwar mentioned somewhere in a mail that the RC controls are reverse. But he could mean reversed when the plane is coming towards you.
This looks a simple question however the consequences are large when I simulate the wrong actions.
 
Can somebody confirm that the mode 2 transmitter stick actions are as follows??
1.   Left control stick up : throtle up
2.   Left control stick down : throttle down
3.   Left control stick left : plane goes to the left (looking from behind the plane)
4.   Left control stick right: plane goes to the right (looking from behind the plane)
5.   Right control stick up : plane goes down (looking from behind the plane)
6.   Right control stick down : plane goes up (looking from behind the plane)
7.   Right control stick left: plane goes to the left (looking from behind the plane)
8.   Right control stick right: plane goes to the right (looking from behind the plane)
Thanks

Correct :)  It is absolutely important that you get these right before you start training.  Once you get used to these, switching is a hard task (not impossible, yet painful!).

Anwar,

Thanks, am sure more questions will follow.
Will there be any flying this week in Al Khor during Eid?
This time I will ask for some help with my Diamond 2500 glider.
I do not want to crash this glider as fast as I did my helicopter (< 30 s).  :'(

Can't comment on Al Khor field without checking with people who go there routinely.  Many of us fly elsewhere, as Al Khor is too far.

I would be surprised if there is no action at least on the second day of Eid onwards (I mean during the afternoons).

Anwar,

Where do you exactly fly? Was this not somewhere near Messaid - Sealine?

Thanks

It is the same thread.  Depends on when sunrise and sunset is etc.

Friday morning around 6:30 to 9 confirmed.  Usually there is some activity on Friday afternoon and Saturday afternoon around 3:30 onwards.

Thanks,

I might drop by once my simulation results are better. Still practicing. In chase mode it goes fine however from a fixed position its worse.
Help is on the way (just ordered a 2 channel copilot stabilization system which might save me some crashes when I am in trouble).   

Take care

Never practice in "chase" mode !  That is the key difference between flying a real aircraft and RC ones... the reversal of controls !
