Spektrum single stick configuration

Post by Adrian Harris » Tue Oct 11, 2016 5:24 pm

I've just changed the T-34 over to a Spektrum DX9 and can confirm it's the same as a DX7, in that you have two options for Elevon, and on Elevon-B it seems to work fine.

One thing I've noticed is that this form of mixing only gives you 75% of full speed when the stick is at the 12 o'clock or 6 o'clock position.

You can correct this by increasing the servo travel settings for the right and left ailerons (RAL & LAL) from 100% to 133%. This gives 100% of full speed when travelling forwards and backwards.

Click the roller to get to the "Function List".
Scroll to "Servo Setup" and click the roller to select it.
The first page is "Travel", so scroll to the "RAL" setting and click the roller to select it.
Rotate the roller until the setting shows "133%" then click to save it.
Scroll to the "LAL" setting and click the roller to select it.
Rotate the roller until the setting shows "133%" then click to save it.
Press the "Back" button twice to return to the main screen.

I suppose for better realism the speed in reverse should be limited but it is handy for getting away from the little people at shows.

Adrian.

Adrian, that's a really useful observation. As long as Mark doesn't see any reason not to do it, I'll amend the Knowledge Base accordingly. Thanks for letting us all know.

Mind you, for scale realism, we all tend to drive our models too quickly but as you say, it sometimes has its uses.

All the best (and hope the cold is better).

Stephen
