Feature Description and Page References for Futaba Instruction-and-Operation Manual and Addendum
AR
O C G
Aileron-to-Rudder Mixing. Air and all gliders only. A pre-assigned programmable mix so that opposite rudder is automatically applied upon aileron input. This "lifts the nose" of the model in turns, making a 'coordinated turn'. Manual P. 81.
ABE
O C J
Air brake (or gear)-to-elevator mix for trim compensation: all gliders only. This pre-programmed mix applies up or down elevator when air brake or gear are deployed, correcting for any pitch change from the added drag. Manual P. 129.
ABK
O D I
Air brake. Air only. Combines elevator, flap, and optionally spoilers to suddenly slow the model for spot landings. May be triggered by throttle position. Manual P. 91.
ABT
n/a
Abort. Used to terminate certain accidental settings such as selecting the wrong channel while in the FRQ option.
ACC
O D J
Acceleration. Heli only. This is a unique delayed mix. When throttle is applied suddenly, opposite rudder is automatically applied to counter torque, then gradually decreased as the model reaches speed. Setup is complex, you must determine the desired amount of rudder required at immediate response and the delay time needed to compensate. A heading-hold gyro provides this compensation automatically. Manual P. 116.
AcroPowered aircraft model type. See TYP.
ACTActivate. Make
Adjustable Function Rate: see AFR.
Adjustable Servo Travel: see AST.
ADF
O C F
Aileron Differential. Creating larger upward aileron travel than downward aileron travel to help minimize the model "dragging" the drooped aileron which causes a model to yaw with aileron input. Manual P. 80.
AFR
O B G
Adjustable function rate, high rate. Adjusts the total travel in each direction of a particular function, such as ailerons. For example, used to adjust total aileron travel whether ailerons are a single servo in channel 1, or two servos set up as flaperons, elevons, or other programming. Manual P. 62.
Aileron Differential: See ADF, also a sub-feature of Flaperon, FPN.
Aileron to Speed Flap mixing: see ASF.
Ailevators: See ALV.
Air: Aircraft model type. See Acro and TYP.
Air brake function: See ABK.
Air brake trim mix: See ABE
ALT:
P C K
Alternate switch. Sets the action of the spring-loaded switch. Normal is "off" when switch is not held, and "on" only when switch is held on. Alt is one pull to turn on, a second pull to turn off. Used for long training flights so the instructor only needs to pull the switch to give student control, then pull switch again to regain control. Manual P. 52.
Alternate switch setup: See ALT.
ALV
O D G
Ailevators. Air only. Twin elevator servos plugged into separate channels used to control elevator with the option to also have the 2 elevator servos act as ailerons in conjunction with the primary ailerons. Manual P. 88.

O C H
Aileron-to-speed flap mix. 4- and 5-servo gliders only. This is a pre-programmed mix which commands the speed flaps (main flaps on a 5-servo glider) to operate in unison with the ailerons. Manual P. 127.
AST: Adjustable servo travel. Endpoint adjustment which has only a single adjustment for both ends of the servo travel. This radio offers ATV (also known as EPA) on all channels, with each end separately adjustable. See ATV.
ATL: Low-side only trim adjustment. Throttle trims on most radio systems are ATL, allowing the trim to affect only the idle and not the high-speed engine's setttings. NOR (normal) is the other option of trim setting wherein trim movement affects the servo across its entire range of motion. See TRM and NOR.
ATV
O B F
Adjustable travel volume, or end point adjustment. Adjusts the total travel in each direction of servos 1-8 regardless of their control assignment. For example, ATV adjustment to AIL channel will adjust only the servo plugged into channel 1 regardless of any flaperon, elevon, or other programming set-ups. Manual P. 60.

HLD
O C L
Throttle hold. Heli programming only. This is a pre-programmed linear mix with an offset. This mix makes the throttle servo no longer responsive to throttle stick position, and moves the throttle servo to idle. This is used to practice autorotations. NOTE: a helicopter model type pre-assigns a condition specifically to be used for throttle hold or autorotation practice; HOWEVER, it does not assign anything to this condition. Besides activating throttle hold, you will need to create proper pitch curves to allow blade inertia to increase during the drop, and sufficient pitch to bring the helicopter back to a hover and land. Manual P. 110.

NOR: Normal. Normal trim adjustment, which affects the servo across its entire travel, not only one half or the other. See ATL and TRM.
NUL: Null. Not assigned or never changed. For example, a mix which has a null switch assignment is always active no matter what switch is moved.
NXT: Next. Continue to next screen within a feature.
OFS: Offset. Offset PMix Type. See PMX. Also see P. 2-8, P. 2-19.
PR
O D G
Pitch to rudder. Heli programming only. This preprogrammed mix, also known as a revolution mix or a tail rotor mix, counters the torque caused by adding pitch with opposite direction rudder command to keep the helicopter from rotating or revolving as a result of the increased torque.

PCM: Pulse Code Modulation. An electronically encoded method of transmitting data to a receiver to help minimize the effects of interference. Analog signals are encoded into a stream of digits, coded as a series of pulses for transmission to the receiver. The greater number of samples in the digital signal (i.e. 1024 vs. 512), the greater the resolution and control precision. An increased signal-to-noise ratio allows PCM systems to exibit minimal effects from interference. See PMD.
PCV
O C F

PHV
O C G
Hovering pitch. Heli programming only. This is a pre-programmed hovering-type mix which gives an in-flight adjustment to the pitch curve at and around center stick (or the hovering point if that point is not at center throttle stick, then the center-point of this feature is adjusted with the hovering offset command) to give very fine-tuning for easiest hovering. Manual P. 105.
PIT
P D I
Pitch curve activation. Heli programming only. Used to attach the pitch channel to the throttle channel. Pitch curve may be disabled or operated by a control other than the throttle's control, for example, in fixed pitch and dual rotor helicopters (which use throttle to adjust pitch, not a pitch command), as well as turbine powered helicopters. Manual P. 58. NOTE: Manual says this function turns the pitch curve function on and off; however, PCV, pitch curve, actually remains functional if you reassign pitch to a different control such as a slider, or reassign it to the throttle stick and assign the throttle function somewhere else.
PMD
P B I
Pulse Modulation. Used to select FM (PPM) or PCM to match the particular receiver being used. Transmitter must be turned off and back on to activate new modulation. Manual P. 43.

RT
O D H
Rudder-to-throttle. Heli programming only. This preprogrammed mix adds a small amount of throttle to counter the added load on the main gear from increasing the pitch of the tail blades, helping to maintain a constant headspeed during rudder application. (This is a minor effect and is not a critical mix for most helicopters.) Manual P. 113.
Rapid acceleration correction mix: See ACC.
