Good flying this afternoon at the #Orme on this the shortest day of 2017. Wind was bang on the fav. slope probably about 25mph. Must put a ballast bolt in the model. Flight curtailed by the short day length !

DX8 queery

Post by Gary M Jones on Fri Dec 29, 2017 8:32 pm

Has anyone tried to set up a DX8 with the following .... 2 x aileron , 2 x elevator, throttle, rudder, single flap, retractable u/c. Mostly works except for u/c. This operated in conjunction with the flaps & semi operated with movement of the rudder !! Can't get it to play after spending too much time trying. 2 different Rx's tried with the same result. I think it does not like flap & retracts. No mixes were set up.

Found a way round it however with the following .... 'Y' lead ailerons , 2 x elevator , throttle, rudder, single Flap, retractable u/c . This all works ok . I did find that Tx mode 1 uses the opposite side equivalent position switch on the Tx for u/c ! & it is in the manual.

It could be that Aux 1 ( aileron) & Aux 3 (for flap) don't agree with u/c which maybe should be Aux 2 ? even when in the Gear slot.

Earlier generation computer radios were a lot simpler

Normally with tricky set ups like this is you will find a mix is turned on somewhere, spectrum and jr were always a bit odd once you started playing with flaps. The transmitter makes assumptions on your behalf that normal messes stuff up.

Thanks , thought that may be the case with so many channels. Sorted now using the old "Y" lead for ailerons. Unusually the u/c switch does not function as such in Mode 1 so that too may play a part in the electronic "workings" . The switch on the r/h side of the Tx does the biz as per handbook very small print.
