Smile Funjet setup for futaba

Hi I need help to setup a funjet on a futaba 9CHP. I have restricted movement in my right hand so I would like to control only the throttle with my right hand and use the left stick for directional controls . Is it possible to mix the controllers to handle this and if it is, how do I go about it? Thank you for any help you can give me on this.

Thanks!

jack,
i'm thinking that the throttle on the right stick is always gonna want to spring back to center, half throttle,and that seems a little dangerous, so you may have to swap both the sticks. i've never done that, but it may be possible.

You need a mode 1 controller.

Hey now,
I'm not sure going mode one would work, but you wouldn't need to buy one just switch yours over. The programming is already in the radio and the springs and ratchets are already installed too. So it'll just take some time.

I s'pose you could just play with the springs and ratchet settings to get the throttle on the right stick and build a P-mix to make elevons for the left stick. At least that's how I'd have done it on my old 8uaf.
Interesting problem. Too bad you're not close by or I could maybe help you with it...
