Latest profile: T8FGS profile v5 for Phantom 2 Here is a profile for the T8FGS. It should get you off the ground (so to speak). As always, proceed at your own risk! Note, this profile is compatible with the Futaba 14SG transmitter as well (including the new version 4 firmware) but as I do not have a 14SG, I cannot test it. (Maybe someone can send me one!) Before beginning, make sure everything works. Do a last test flight with the stock controller to confirm everything functions as it's supposed to. The Futaba Receiver The 8FGS will work directly with the stock P2 receiver or the Futaba receiver optionally supplied with the transmitter. Range with the stock receiver is considered to be very good. The process for installing the Futaba receiver hardware is the same as for the 14SG and you can find detailed installation instructions here. Be sure to never put anything in direct contact with the Naza flight controller. Always leave a small gap. Antenna placement is important for good range. Some tips for antenna placement: Placing the antennas at 90 degree angles is recommended by Futaba but might not be as important as the following. It is important the tips are as far away from each other as possible. It is important that the tips drop down as far as possible from the main body. Avoid potential sources of interference especially a vTX FPV. Longer antennas are recommended if you want to fly long range FPV (beyond 1,000m). Recommended mounting positions for the receiver and antennas. Do not close your Phantom up until you've completed the process of setting up and testing the 8FGS with the Phantom 2. The Transmitter This is where the installation is different from the other models. Profiles are model specific. I have built a model for the P2 on my 8FGS which provides the following capabilities: 1. All the basic flight controls of the stock P2 transmitter including similarly positioned "S1" and "S2" switches. 2. A timer that starts when you take off and stops when you shut the motors off. It will beep every minute and then a series of beeps will occur after 15 minutes to remind you to check your battery condition. 3. Triple rate flight controls on SB set up to help with filming especially reducing yaw sensitivity: UP: full linear controls. (Note: The UP position is away from you.) MIDDLE: YAW 75% -35 expo, PITCH 100% -25 expo, ROLL 100% -25 expo. DOWN: YAW 75% -50 expo, PITCH 90% -35 expo, ROLL 90% -35 expo. 4. Smooth gimbal control. The SC 3-way switch will move the gimbal from its current position smoothly up or down depending on position. 5. Forced fail-safe. Switch SF will force the Naza into failsafe mode regardless of mode switch position. 6. Auto YAW on SE and LD. DOWN: Off. MIDDLE: YAW based on LD trim. UP: YAW and ROLL based on LD trim (circle around an object). Not present in this profile is a flat spot in the throttle curve to help with the non-centering stick. If you have the non-centering stick and you want to keep it that way, you may want to program a small flat spot in the middle of the throttle curve so that when you put the stick close to center, the Phantom will hover as opposed to slowly descending or rising if you didn't center it perfectly. If you need this, go to MODEL MENU > THROTTLE CURVE and set these values: Here's a video demonstrating the smooth gimbal motion: To put this profile on your transmitter, you will need to go through a couple of steps: download the Futaba file system utility here (windows only) and put it in a folder on your computer. download the 8FGS profile v5 I created, unzip it and copy the "Phantom 2" file to the Futaba folder on your computer. put an SD card (2Gb or less) in the transmitter and switch it on, select yes to format when prompted, switch it off. connect the SD card to your PC and run the FFS.EXE application. MOUNT the card, IMPORT the Phantom 2 profile and then DISMOUNT. You can only copy the profile to the 5th or greater position. The first 4 positions are not reserved. Put the card back in the transmitter and switch it on. Go to LINK MENU and then MODEL SELECT. Change TX to CARD. Select "Phantom 2" and then COPY. Press RETURN for 1 second to copy. Switch off, remove the SD card. Calibration and Confirmation Your transmitter should now be configured to operate the Phantom 2. Turn on the transmitter and then your Phantom 2 (without the props for now!). You should have a solid green light on the Futaba receiver. If it's not green, or the Phantom is blinking fast yellow indicating it doesn't have a link, you may need to bind the transmitter with the receiver. Do so by switching the transmitter on then the Phantom and press and hold the button on the RX for several seconds. If all is good, the next step is to connect the Phantom to the assistant software and check that each control is calibrated and working properly. For calibration, make sure all switches are in the back-most position except for SC which should be in the middle position. Make sure LD is centered. Make sure each of the primary flight controls corresponds to the correct input in Phantom Assistant. They should rest at or near 0 and go to 1,000 at the ends. Next are the flight mode switches: again using the assistant software, make sure SD and SA go to the corresponding modes (for SD: GPS, ATTI, manual/FS and for SA: OFF, course lock, and home lock). Make sure that SF moves the flight mode to one of the two middle failsafe blocks (doesn't have to be centered, just has to be in it) from any other mode. Finally, calbrate X1 (the gimbal) by putting SC in the middle position and moving RS only. Once this is done and working properly, you can button up your Phantom and go take it flying! Before each flight, check that each switch is in the right position. Make sure LD is centered. One last thing: If you wan to have a centering left stick (recommended), this will require opening up the transmitter and adding a spring return clip if it is not already included with it. It wasn't included with mine but I emailed email@example.com and they sent me the missing part. There you have it. It's late. I'm tired. I may have missed something or got something wrong. Let me know and I'll fix it. Hope it helps!
