I am running Aerofly RC8 on an iMac with a Spektrum 2000 dongle and Spektrum DX8 (silver version) radio trying to improve my beginner rc flying skills. I designated a channel to the Aerofly on my radio, followed the easy set up procedures as per the Aerofly manual. I have chosen is the PT 40 as it seems to be the simplest model to train with.
The program fires up on my iMac, the graphics seem fine and the simulator reacts to my DX8.
Aerofly 8 is set up as, SIMULATOR on a channel in my DX8. I set F Mode and put three different percentages for the Ailerons, Elevator and Rudder on the SIMULATOR channel.
I am having great difficulty controlling the plane and don't know if it's me or the program.
Can someone out there answer the questions below and give me help with these issues:
Is F Mode set up to accomplish dual rates necessary in this situation ?
Could these settings be affecting the performance of the program?
Are there more settings I need to include on that channel in my radio ?
Are there more settings I need to include on Aerofly 8 ?
I would like to be able to trim the plane and set dual rates to control it better, is this possible ?
I notice that on the radio display that appears on the screen there are different Modes such as Mode 1, Mode 2, etc. I cannot find an explanation for these modes.
When I change the Mode setting the plane acts differently. For example...in Mode 2 the plane throttles up on its own and begins moving and I have no control of it sometimes when I boot up the program.
