But the problem is the DX6 doesn't have an Aux 2 selection, only the Aux 1 selection and Channel 6 is already using Aux 1 for Flaps.Channel Assignment (Rx Port Assignments and Channel Input Config)
- Right Stick X Axis - Both Ailerons - Roll
- Right Stick Y Axis - Elevator - Pitch
- Left Stick Y Axis - Throttle - Throttle
- Left Stick X Axis - Rudder - Yaw
- Aux 1 - Switch C (or whichever 3 Way Switch you want to use for Dual Rates in RF)
- Aux 2 - Switch D (or any other unassigned 3 Way Switch you want to use for Gear Retracts in RF)
Available in RF7, RF8, and RF9 I believe. If all else fails you can use the keyboard commands for the channels. The keys are the Y U I and O. They toggle channels 5-8. This is in the manual. You are saying you want to set rates on your radio, so you need to be using the software's full rate and then within your radio set lesser rates on one or more rate switches. The keyboard can toggle the lo and hi rates in the software.12oclockhigh replied: " Set the rate at full setting using the keyboard "
Is setting the rates with keyboard a RF9 capability, or am I overlooking a keyboard command in RF8 ?
I agree ... it may also depend on what is mixed in the radio vs the RF editor. If both have an elevon mix at different percentages, there may be conflict. I would need to cross that bridge before knowing for sure. There are so many ways to setup radio's these days, you really need to study the manuals and experiment a little. I don't envision using an actual radio as a controller, so I may never know. But I will say that many of my variants have 30+ modifiers and mixes, so they may require just a straight channel to channel setup and let the software handle all ... however that is not the norm ... also you can have many radio profiles stored for different scenarios.I would not disable RF Software mixes unless you are using mixes within the radio and even then you most likely would not need it. The only time I think you want to disable RF software mixes is when you are setting up a collective pitch helicopter and want to do it manually. The other radio mixes should appear in the Throttle, Aileron, Rudder, and Elevator channels so just use the radio output values.
Hi Finally got back on my computer.In that post you said channel 6 is already assigned to flaps and channel 5 is locked by the dongle to dual rates/exponents. Where are you getting those facts from? Are you saying that you are flying a plane in RF and the physical radio switch you use for channel 5 produces dual rates on the plane in RF and the physical radio switch you use for channel 6 controls the flaps on the plane in RF?
It's important for me to understand where you confirmed those two channels, because as far as I can tell, they can be set in 3 places in your radio, cannot be set or changed in your dongle, and can be set in at least 3 or 4 places in RF.
