Is it possible to use rescue mode while also running in rate mode? I prefer flying in rate mode and would also like to try out the rescue function via a separate channel (channel 8).

What I am trying to accomplish is to have my three flight modes or idle up modes 1-3 programmed using rate mode only. However, when I flip the momentary switch on the Jeti the rescue mode activates until I release the switch. I have tried setting up rescue normal by setting one of the gyro modes to a negative value. The problem with that is although the rescue mode is active, the other two modes remain in heading hold mode.

Could I program a bank for rescue mode only and another bank for rate mode flying using the momentary switch?

Thanks

Hello,

flying in rate mode is actually quite demanding for a pilot. Are you sure you really want to fly in this mode? To make it more clear, you would be probably 1 from 100 000 of pilots, since Rate mode is quite uncomfortable for a normal helicopter.
Usually only pilots that are flying Scale models want to utilize this mode to show more natural behavior of the model.

In other words in this mode the rudder will drift constantly and you have to correct direction most of the time, especially backward flying is very tricky.

The reason I have been flying in rate mode is because I started flying in rate mode back in 1990 or so with an Xcell 60 and have always preferred to maintain the rudder myself. However, with the introduction of rescue mode on the Spirit unit, I am now feeling the need to utilize heading hold mode to make the rescue setup easier. However, I would prefer to eventually have rescue + rate mode alongside heading hold mode setup and accessible when wanted/needed.

Most of my flying is low head speed stuff and scale but when I am doing aerobatics, I have always like maintaining the rudder myself: call me weird :mrgreen: For me, learning to fly the rudder in rate mode during any type of heli maneuver has become second nature so it really isn't much of an issue.

Cheers!
