    I have had the V2 smoke pump for some time. I'm using a Futaba 14SG transmitter. As the manual explains:

    This version of the software was supplied between 2010 and 10/2014. The pump

    controller behaves like a conventional speed controller:

    Transmitter -100% » pump off

    Transmitter +100% » full pump power


    a) You wish to set 30% pump power; this is the usual requirement for petrol engines.

    For this the transmitter travel has to be set up as follows:

    - 100% pump off

    - 60% pump on

    With most transmitters this is only possible by setting up a mixer, since the upper

    limit of travel cannot be set to a value below 0%. Our Expert Forum includes suggested

    solutions for various radio control systems.

    Can someone help me with the mix required to be able to adjust the full range of the pump?

    Not sure what you mean "don't have voltage display" Although the unit has a display screen it will be hidden on this project and not routinely accessible. I will rely on the external telemetry function and preflight check for battery voltage.

    I'm have a pump with no version number. It powers up correctly, green light is lit. However, I cannot adjust the "on" endpoint. Pump turns off ok but the runs the same in the on position from 0 to 100.
