Spectrum DX9 2 Switches 1 TX channel 6 Flight Modes
Well I was doing some looking around and could not find any posts on setting up a Spectrum DX9 to get 1TX channel 6 flight Modes.
So this is what I came up with.
I started by setting a 2 position switch as Aux1. (Switch A)
Then made 3 mixes to Aux1 > Aux1 and switch D (one mix for each switch position of switch D)
So Switch A and Switch D are used.
Here is the setup of P-Mix 1:
So with this mix when switch D is in the 0 spot no added mix.
So this will be for Modes 1 and 6.
Mix 2 when switch D is in position 1. This is for modes 2 and 5.
Mix 3 when switch D is in position 2 this is for modes 3 and 4.
So switching works as follows.
Switch A in position 0 and D is switched for 0, 1, and 2.
This gives you Modes 1, 2, and 3.
Switch A is then moved to position 1 which then changes right to Mode 4, and switch D is moved 2, 1 and 0.
This gives you modes 4, 5, and 6.
Then move switch A back to position 0 and you are back to Mode 1.
The Rate % is what the difference is being added to the other switch. So the first rate is for the switch A in position 0 and the second is for switch A in position 1.
Set your rate % to (ideally) produce PWM pulse widths of 1165, 1295, 1425, 1555, 1685, and 1815 milliseconds.
You can see this live in Mission Planner as you change the % rate.
I have found that different RX types the % rate needs to change.
Have tested with Spectrum DSMX, Lemon DSMX PPM, Lemon DSMX regular and the % rate is different for each.
So when setting up be sure you have the correct values for each switch position.
Hope this might help someone else.
That it does, unfortunately my brain can only cope with six modes.Its an old edition.;~)
