Trainer Switch Off Bias

Post by Flaps 30 » Sun Jan 22, 2012 11:59 pm

To put the 'insta trim' in a position that I could use it easily (mode 2) I moved the spring biased switch over to the left hand side (throttle) and assigned it to the trim. In doing this I moved the normal switch over to the trainer position. Having done all of this, it raised a little problem, in that the trainer switch on eePe happens to mimic the spring biased switch, rather than a standard switch that I now have.

I don't know what others may feel, but it would be great to have the trainer switch on eePe react like a normal switch.

The problem is that what you did is not very common.
While we definitely could make eePe behave like that and also give you a choice on how to set up the switches/sticks/pots. It'd be very hard to make it SIMPLE. I'll look it over but I don't think it's possible given that limit.

I also exchanged those two switches for the same reason. To keep epee happy, just move the "hot" wire as well. The two ground wires are interchangable. Simple.

Thanks Bill. :) I thought that it was just me that did such things. In my case I try to do things in a neat way when it comes to wiring. Hence why I didn't follow your example by moving the wires over.

FWIW, I also swapped the two switches, and moved the wires with them.
I figured it would be easier to keep the name "TRN" with the physical switch.

Did the same thing with the idle up switch and the Rudder D/R. The stock position of these is just wrong ;)

Never thought of this, but sounds like a great idea. I agree that both switches would be better in those positions. Sounds like I have another rainy day project!
