    I just completed setting up my Futaba 14SG tx (with RS7008SB receiver) with my Phantom. I scavenged a few resources online but came out with a specific setup for the Phantom (Naza + H3-2D)

    I could write a step by step guide if some people are interested. Basically what I have done :
    -Basic working 4 control axis (Aileron, Elevator, Rudder and Throttle)
    -Dual Rate switch to slow down one or more control axis for smoother control when filming
    -Off - Course Lock - Home Lock switch working on any 3 position switch
    -GPS Atti - Atti - Manual switch on any 3 position switch
    -Failsafe Override Switch (forces Failsafe regardless of the position of the flight mode switch) using control mixing
    -Failsafe configuration for loss of TX contact (activates NAZA Failsafe when loosing contact)
    -Gimbal control (H3-2D) on any analog input (I chose the left volume button on front)
    -Remote Telemetry Alarms (RX Voltage and Battery Voltage Alert)
    -Auto Timer when taking off and shutting down motor. Configurable switch to reset
    -Telemetry saving to SD Card configurable switch to turn off and on

    So, any interest? I don't want to waste 3hours to do something no one is interested in. It was pretty straight forward for me since I'm used to Futaba controllers but I guess if it helps someone, that'll be nice

    I'm planning on using a 14SG when I step up to an S800 in a couple of months, and I would definitely like an intro guide that includes all those things you listed. I'm sure there's also a number of other forums that would find that very valuable.

    I'm not sure but I suppose it will be similar to a 8FG.

    Ok, seems there is interest. I'll probably start on the weekend. It will be multi-part... Installation of the receiver, change of mode, etc. Then after that, configuration of the NAZA Software... then the controller itself.

    I flew my phantom for the first time yesterday with my Futaba and it was a bit sensitive on the throttle to attain hover (left stick does not returns to center). I'll fine tune my settings and let you know.

    I don't have a 8FG so I could'nt say but it's probably VERY similar.

    I did not configure gain on my setup.

    BTW, here is the guide : viewtopic.php?f=4&t=3931

    Please add me to the list of someone interested in seeing the steps you followed.

    I'm going to try and do something similar and would be grateful for your help.

    Not off the top of my head. Try it. Use the Assistant software to calibrate and confirm controls.
