Question Swash Mode Question

I have the 12Z. Does anyone know the difference between swash modes H-3 and HR-3? They both appear to be 120 CCPM with everything the same except the diagram in the Model Type menu screens. One has a circle drawn around the 3 points of the swashplate and the other has a square drawn around them.

Any help is appreciated.

H3 is 140 deg 3 point eCCPM
HR3 is 120 deg 3 point eCCPM.

Thank you!
May I ask how you found that out? I looked and looked in the 12Z manual and couldnt find out. Is there an after market manual that does a better job explaining the radio?

Thanks again,
Charles

I just know from the many years of flying Futaba. The 14MZ was the first Futaba radio that actually had the 140 deg eCCPM swash program in the radio. To fly 140 deg eCCPM before that, had to set the radio on 120 deg eCCPM and use one programmable mix to set up for 140 deg.

The swash with the round circle around it, that is showing that the points are equal distance in degs around the swash plate. 120 degs apart HR3

The swash with the box around is showing that two of the points are offset. H3 is 140 deg eCCPM. If you notice that is only swash type symbol that has a box around it.

Also the Futaba Fliers Club is a great source of information about the 12Z, 12FG, 14MZ

You will have to send in your registration card for the 12Z and Bill Baxter will get you set up with an account.

Page 93 of the 10C manual shows the different swash types

I don't know why can't direct link to it.
But go to this link and then scroll down to 10 C manual and click on the PDF version.

http://www.futaba-rc.com/manuals/index.html

Page 93 of the 10C manual explains the swash type menu.

seriously? I did not know that my new 12fg did 140 ccpm. I just got done setting up my new vibe 50 and had to do a mix to dial out the interaction. Guess I'll switch it to the other ccpm mode.

H-1 or H-4 for the raptor Swash setup?

I just bought a 12FGH and was reading the manual getting ready to setup my raptor 50. I guessing the H-1 is for m-ccpm.

Here is a great link that explains the swash types.
Would have been nice if this was in the manual.
