The DX6i only has a two way switches on channel 5 & 6.
I use it with Arducopter with mode (Acro/Stable) on one channel and GPS hold on the other. You can mix the two switches together to get four positions/values on a single channel.
I'd like more channels now for camera control so I'm finding the DX6i a bit limiting and saving up or a DX8. The Spekturm quality is really good and good range of receivers.
Thanks for the reply. I just ordered the completed model to save time and trouble. Hmmm, maybe I should get a 8 channel rx and upgrade my tx from dx7. Scotland? How's the weather there?
Any special things to do in the tx to get it setup right other than binding? To set up the switches you just go into the program and set things up the way you want, correct?
