Using a FrSKY Taranis X9D, we have been mixing different switches and testing 7 flight modes. RTL on a one-switch return home and 6 other flight modes. We have included our video logs of how we set it up. You can use any switches following our…Continue
I purchased finally an APM1 this March and built a tricopter based on RCExplorer.se design for vertical aerial photography (walls, rock faces etc.) While I jumped into this amazing world with this Optic 6 and had some budget issues, I had/have to squeeze out the maximum from my six…Continue
Under AUX CH set CH 5 to Sw C
End points I set ch 5:GEAR to +/- 120%
Under Mix 1 Mix 2 Mix 3
Well, technology is developing fast, but one issue always remains: how to config the TX to allow 6 modes...
Here is a 6 modes switch for ANY Transmitter !
Enter for details
These instructions explain how to set up a Spektrum DX7 transmitter for 6 different flight modes, using just the 3 position Flaps switch (in combination with the Rudder switch). This way you'll use just one channel for the flight modes and leave the Gear and Aux2 channel open ...
(note that you have to use…Continue
This is how it worked for my DX7,
I use various switch combinations of the FLAPS and the GEAR switch which will give you 6 modes;
(note that you have to use the DX7 in "airplane mode", not in "heli mode" to fly a…Continue
The T6EX doesn't have a 3 position switch channel, so I had to combine channel 5 and 6 to get four modes. I made it work with a pot that has double terminals for each knob position, so that way there is always 2 pins to connect cables to for a single position.
Think of this knob as a bridge between same terminals: A to A, B to B, etc, closing the circuit to ground.
Channel 6 is connected to a terminal A and a terminal B from the opposite side.
Channel 5 is…Continue
I bought a cheap RC Futaba T7CP on ebay, but I spent 3 days in order to understand the right configurations of switches to enable 6 flight modes.
Here, my solution. Hope useful for the community.
(I used some hints from other blogs)
1. I used SWE and SWA. SWE is a 3-position switch. while SWA is on the left and it is a 2-position switch
2. You have to set End Point, SubTrim and RT in MIX. First, set the ENDPOINT for CH5 to be 50%(UP) and 52%(DOWN). You can tune…Continue
