I've followed the tutorial on several webs including the one which is really well explained here in diydrones to configure 6 mode flight on my RX. The thing is that the values present on that tutorial does not work for me so I keep moving up and down mixing values without any success. As far as I have one position of the three position switch set-up correctly, it changes as I set values for the gear switch or viceversa. I amb starting to become nuts! :)
Can someone please explain me the logic involving this so I can configure it properly. So far, I just configured 4 modes, 3 with the 3 position switch and one using the switch next to it. If I touch any other value to get the full 6 flight modes, it all gets crazy!
Please help! Thank you!
Just keep trying! It's a real PITA, but pretty slick when you get it working.
I'd ignore the guide that suggests testing your output PWM signal. Default settings on the guide I used work just fine. I wish I could find the one I used for you, but I can't seem to dig it up or remember which is which.
You'll get it eventually. Don't give up!
It's important to adjust the weightings of the inputs in the correct order, as some of them interact. I followed this guide: http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/mode-switch-setup-for-turnigy
Mission Planner in the Radio Setup window will tell you what PWM the radio is sending.
I set it up just through the menus, but if you do it this way, you might want to have the ER9x User Guide open too.

I actually went backwards through the guide and it worked fine. I think if you get everything right it will work in the end.
Open up the eepe editor, download the eeprom from your TX, double click the model name and play with the mixers in there, its so much easier to work it out! then use the simulator button down the bottom to see the output. once your happy flash the eeprom to the TX
I have done that mod on my 9x, and I wouldn't recomend it! the mixed switches are a better option to me. have the 2 pos switch for auto/manual and the 3 pos to do... hmmm hard to explain
Alt Hold Simple
Its too hard to remember 6 positions in order, where the switches are 2 groups of 3 which is easier. Also the switches are easier to see what mode your in, its hard to tell where the knob is pointing sometimes.
I know both switches up is stab, and both down land.. so its easier, well for me anyway.
Another plus is that you get a warning on startup if the switches aren't in stab mode
It's pretty easy to follow the order using the two switches. The manual and auto grouping is also pretty easy to work with.
I have mine set...
Manual, stabilize, FBW-A, loiter, auto, RTL
Thanks to all but...How is that when I, for example, set ID0 to 23%...then I set up ID1 to ..lets say...40% it affects the set-up of ID0...imagine:
ID0 - 23% - 1105
when I set up ID1..suddenly 23% does not correspond to 1105...it decreases or increments...This is what is getting me crazy!
it will be mixing 40% with 23% or something.. i couldnt work it out either!
you need to set the multiplex (or multpx on the remote display) to replace instead of add that way it just inserts the % rather than mixing it. If you look at my screenshot above you can see the R before the percentage, thats the replace.
With the !AIL set to full gives -100% or 100% so multiplying that by the other percentages will give you the negative ones. change the multiplex on this one to multiply and flicking the switch gives negatives and the switch in its normal gives positives.
Here is a EEPROM file to flash to the remote. you can open it up in eePe and see the mixing too.
