Pixhawk wont change modes it seems

I have set up 2 switches on my remote to act as a 6 position switch and set it all up in MP for my modes everything seems to work fine in MP all the modes are switched fine on the screen but when I go outside and fly it the modes are not changing it seems to be in acro mode from best I can tell I am new to QuadCopters and such and the one I built is the first I have ever flown so I am sure there is something I am doing wrong here but for the life of me I can not figure it out. The good news is I am getting good in acro mode LOL But even if I set a switch up to fly in Super Simple Mode Nothing changes in the way it flys I have gone into modes that use GPS ones that do Not Circle RTL and no change and Yes I do make sure I have a solid GPS lock before I take off as well. as I said I am new to all of this so I am sure it is a me thing and not a hardware thing.
