Pixhawk PX 4 2.4.8 / spectrum DX 8 channel mapping problem

I am new to the Pixhawk flight controller and the use of mission planner. I have built several multirotor's using clean flight or beta flight. With either one of them there is a simple checkbox to change your channel map.

I am using a lemon 8 Channel PPM receiver. The way my channel map comes out

throttle = roll

Yaw = Yaw

pitch = throttle

roll = pitch

I can't be the only guy runing a DX 8. There has to be a way to change the channel mapping however I can't figure it out?

Any and all help would be appreciated, at this point I'm at a lost.

Thank you

I was pretty sure everything after a DX7i allowed you to program the outputs from the transmitter's own menus, right?

If you want to do it in the Pixhawk itself, then look at the RC Map options:

I went through the DX 8 manual today and could not find anything on changing the channel map. Now that does not mean that they don't call it something different and I didn't figure it out?

In my research I did run across the same link that you put up. The answer that is given in the manual I did not quite understand. I guess tomorrow I'll get my 2 computers side-by-side and go from the auto copter manual and see if I can't sort it out. Thank you for your reply I sure appreciate it.

In the full Parameter configuration look for RC_map 

Thank you for your reply Brandon. I appreciate the tip on where to begin. I will definitely look into this.
Thank you again

Thank you Brandon and Haygood.

 

I was able to get into mission planner and make the changes necessary. It turns out you are both right and using the diagram Brandon sent it was a piece of cake. It did not take 5 minutes to complete and I am now moving forward. Thank you both for such a speedy response!

I am now moving forward and will be able to mount the flight controller on my craft.

Thank you again
