Start with a model that hasn't been used or reset your model to factory settings
to make sure we don't have any old settings kicking around. Click once on the
model you intend to use scroll down to copy/reset click once scroll down click on
reset scroll over click on yes.

1 First step we are going to have the plane sitting in front of us and will be

looking at the plane from behind.


2 plug the esc into throttle port


3 plug the right servo into the aileron plug on the rx


4 plug the left servo into the AUX1 port


5 bind the rx and test the controls.


Only the right elevon should move and only when you move the stick right and left. Right stick and the right elevon should
move up. If it doesn't you need to reverse the servo. (To reverse servo direction
from the main screen click once scroll down to setup list and click once scroll
down to reverse and select the channel you need to reverse. Aileron channel)
When you move the stick up and down nothing should happen. No left elevon
movement at all. If this isn't exactly what happens double check your
connections. Dont worry about the left stick at all. Its happy we don't need to do
anything to it.

6 Setting up your radio.

7 Click the scroll wheel once and scroll down to Setup List. Click on setup list.

8 Scroll down to Wing Tail Mix and click on it

9 Scroll down to Dual Aile and click on it change the INH to ACT

10 Check your control surface movement again. Right stick = right elevon up and
left elevon down. Left stick = left elevon up and right elevon down. If they don't
move this way reverse the channels so they do. With the left elevon plugged into
the AUX port you need to reverse the Flap Channel on the radio to reverse its
direction. Aileron channel to reverse the right elevon. Remember we are looking
at the plane from behind when doing all of this. Unplug the model and power
down the radio to save your settings up to this point.

11 Getting the elevator to work.

12 Turn on the radio and click on the scroll wheel once. Now scroll down to MIX1
and click one time. Now scroll down and click on INH change it to ACT and click
again.

13 In the new menu that comes up it should have Mix1 and List on the top row.
In the next row down click and change it to ELEV. Scroll over one place click and
change that to FLAP.

14 In row number two in the MIX1 under RATE D set it to -100% and U change to
-100%. Check your control surface movement. Right stick right elevon up and left
elevon down. Left Stick left elevon up and right elevon down. Pull back on the
stick / up elevator both elevons should move up. Push forward both move down.
If you had to reverse the travel direction of either of your servos then the
numbers will probably be positive instead of negative in the RATE D and U
collums. Added a photo of what the MIX1 setup should look like.

15. Final row SW should be set to ON. Trim set to ACT.

16 Your done go fly.

Did you write this or paste it from somewhere? I hate to say this but it's incorrect, complex, overwhelming and bloated. You may get it working this way but belive me there's much easier ways.There are two methods that I know of on the DX6i and neither of which are followed above. Is this for something specific? What is the purpose? I want to give you the benefit of the doubt but this looks like your own personal exploration, such info should not be posted to the masses, you have to remember they will find it and follow it forever, the internet is forever..

Using the elevon wing type on the DX6i is all that is needed to get elevons to work with any receiver. NOT dual ailerons.

The second method I know of is for adding a two stage rate switch and sucking more throw out of the DX6i's limited travel when using the built in elevon mix. You do this by mixing elvator to elevator and aileron into aileron...this is exactly how I made my mig29 video and I explained it in great detail in this thread a long time ago: http://www.rcpowers.com/community/threads/fly-it-like-you-stole-it.9906/

The audience should not be presented with the above method when there are much simpler ways (see proper) to do things...

Here is the section of that thread worth reading:

"I used a DX6i and I will explain my programming as well. I set dual rate (D/R) combination (Combi D/R) to the elevator switch or whichever D/R switch you prefer, this combines all the dual rate switches into one, I prefer the elevator D/R switch because it's the easiest to get to while I am flying a elevon only airplane. This is an important step because we want to free up the aileron DR switch for another function, I will explain later.

The next step it to set the Wing Type to delta/elevon, this step is obvious and you have to do this anyway if you are using the DX6I. The next part is the key to making the Mig29 do summersaults so follow closely.

Then go to Mix 1 and set it to mix Elevator to Elevator at 125% up and down, set it to be activated with the Aileron D/R switch. I know this sounds weird, to mix one channel with itself, but the DX6i does not use all the available travel when in Delta wing mode. This mix squeezes that extra travel out of the computer. I learned this from a youtube video as an alternative to using the Delta mix, but I discovered that both methods can be used together for added mayhem.

Repeat the same thing for the ailerons, go to Mix 2 and mix Aileron with Aileron at 125%, left and right, set it to also activate with the aileron D/R switch, the Aileron D/R switch.


Now, when you are flying you have the normal dual rates on the elevator D/R switch, (I set mine at: Low - 50% EXP 15, High - 100% EXP 35), this changes both the aileron and elevator channels at once. Your setting may need to be different depending how you setup you mechanical throws or how you fly. The extreme throw comes in when you hit the Aileron D/R switch, which mixes both channels into themselves and you get way way more throw than normal, this switch can be set either way at any time and is independent of your normal D/R settings. You do lose some expo while the two mixes are both active, so keep this in mind, the expo is not applied to the added throw the two custom mixes provide. This basically gives you two D/R switches, one for low and high and another for high and extreme, you can combine any combination during flight to get the results you wish."

Hi Squishy. Yes i did cut and paste this article. Anything i find that helps me with the hobby i am happy to share. I am having heaps of trouble trying to get my head around making the ailerons pop up in the same direction with the flick of a switch on my TX ( just like dave does in the master classes under spoilerons) in order to do high alpha manouvers . I will give your method a try and see how i go. Thanks for the comments. Alex in Australia

oh, that's different dude, that's not elevons that's called spoilerions, you want this old thread: http://www.rcpowers.com/community/threads/4x4-on-and-off.6654/

Cunningbaldrick -

I know that this probably does not take full advantage of mixes within my Dx6i, but this was the setup I had on my F18 V2 when I was using my Dx6i (I have since switched to a Turnigy 9x with the er9x firmware). It took a little playing around with to get the mixers to do what I needed them to do and of course it takes up some room and adds about 20 grams more weight, but the F18 V2 has a huge electronics bay as you know, so it can hold it all.

This gave me the best setup for flying as with the vtails mixed with elevator input, it gave great authority in the pitch. My elevators were actually mixed as elevons, but they worked independently of the ailerons. In other words, the ailerons and elevons worked together in the roll axis, but not in the pitch axis.

The rudders worked would still provide yaw control even when I had up elevator input for high alpha, but with spoilerons activated, I could let off a bit on the up elevator and end up with more rudder authority.

I'm not sure what power setup you are using, the more power the better on this plane, it will never be a speed demon, even with an NTM Prop Drive 2700, but the power of that motor will make high alpha a bit easier and will get you out of trouble should the situation arise.

Hope my diagram is not too crude for you to follow, just my $.02 worth.

Cheers,

Scott

The thing about external mixers is you can do so many more things with them. Once you mix lets say rudd and ele, you cant really use those channels for any other mixing. Simplicity, go with the radio mixes but for high performance setups, use externals. Much easier to setup

I don't like external mixers... they are necesary only on low end tx... but tx with more than 6program mix can do any complex setup like this saving those grams and allows total control of the mix center servos and rate....(my 9c has 8 program mixes)
er mod for 9x tx are really unlimited.. just need to use your brain to make really complex programs ... 9x companion program can make all this things really easy
