On the channels dialog, there's only 6 available entries for functions to be set. Please increase this to 10.

At the moment, i'm using 4 for GeoLink, and 1 for rescue, and I use the last one for tuning.

With the release of spirit v3.4.0 firmware, it's possible to set stabilisation using functions, however there are not enough free F: slots to be of any use to me, which is a real shame as i'd like to enable rescue and stabilised flight modes from switches.

My radio has 16 channels (opentx/edgetx), I use 6 channels for control (T,A,E,R, gain, pitch), and would like to use the other 10 channels for functions.

Also, please consider implementing a different method for setting up features. In the radio, channel overrides are required to set up different features on switches, which just seems like a really bad way to program a radio.
To set up GeoLink, I needed to program 8 different channel-overrides just to allow RTH, pos hold and auto-land.

A mix system similar to "iNav" where a feature is assigned a channel, or channels + the channel position range, would (imho) be so much easier to program and maintain from a user perspective. Channel overrides would then not be required. Much less radio programming would be required, making it much easier to maintain.

It would also allow a single switch to enable multiple features at the same time, e.g. altitude limit + return to home, etc.

See an example here:

Hi,

I fully understand and support this, because I have the same problem. Too less selection changes in spirit to get all the great GeoLink functions setup.
I'm using S-Bus too, so I have 16 channels and I can setup only 12 of them. 4 additional would be great for additional functions.

Best Regards

Bernhard

Its really annoying that each function requires it's own channel. If functions could be assigned to channel number + channel microsec range, then functions would be unlimited even with a 8 ch radio.

The other option described here with signal ranges assigned to function would be even also a great option. I have this for a sound module in use. In Betaflight it is also common to use signal ranges assigned to functions. This can be used for several categories in the Spirit:
- Geo-Link
- Spectrum Analysis
- Setup optimisations
- Stabi Modes
Steps can be -100%, -80%, -60%... 0%, 20%...100%
-100% = Off/Default
This makes it possible to have 10 functions per chanel.

GeoLink is already using signal ranges for functions. We will consider to add this option. At the moment our aim is to simplify settings.

That would be great.

Can you please increase the number of F functions asap as it's not possible to use all the features as there's not enough F functions to assign to.
