Reading the manual, the normal flight modes are "off" / "normal" / and "heading hold".
There appears to be an option to have a separate switch to disable the assist feature.
Does this mean that it would be possible to have FOUR modes: flight_mode_1 / flight_mode_2 / flight_mode_3 controlled by a three-pos switch and a separate two position switch to disable ASSIST?
Alternatively, if the gains were set to ZERO, in any flight mode other than "OFF", would that also disable assist capability? UPDATE: re-read the manual and -100 sets gain to a minimum of 10%, so this approach will not work.
I am interested in having a choice between three different flight modes, with assist, instead of reserving one of the three modes to be "OFF".
A separate switch should allow four modes.
first quick check: yes, it´s possible. I´ve one 3-way-switch for normal, heading, Horizont, another 2-way Switch for assist On/off and a third channel for increase / decrease. Look´s fine
Set value to -100 does not power off the assist, it still works a Little bit.
