Looking for practical (hands on) experience.   I have read the manual, I have contacted Futaba RC-Support and have called a LARGE supplier of hobby products and can't get a definitive answer.

 

I know you can assign the DT3 switch to either D/R or CH3 operation, My question is, if assigned to CH3 is the switch proportional?

or is it just an on-off switch.

 

Thanks all

I think its like other Futaba radios when you do that you then use your trim step to define how much the servo moves. I set mine to match my steps on my Boris Flow Meter as I use 3 ch for my adjustable needle.
Thanks John

I believe its proportional. If the switch is being used for dual rate, then it can be step up and down to vary the amount of dual rate you want. I cant see it operating any different for a 3rd channel setup. Plus the switch looks the same as the trim switches. You should be OK.
