HelicopterRadio - Spektrum DSM › Mixing throttle in DX6i not possible?

I have been fiddling with my DX6i, and it seems like it refuses to accept mixing to the throttle channel. I can set the throttle as the source of the mix and have it move any other channel, but the throttle won't receive mixing.

Is there any way to allow the throttle to receive mixing? I would like to do a kind of backwards revo-mix: move the rudder to piro right (against torque) and i need more power to maintain altitude, because the tail is suddenly using much more power, but piro left and i gain altitude since the tail is suddenly not using any power at all. So i want to increase throttle at far left rudder, and increase at far right.

any way to make DX6i let me do it?

It's not possible with the DX6i to mix throttle with anything. I believe the menu selections are there so it looks like you can, but with the DX6i, you can't.

bugger.

Well, what 2.4 radios will allow it? It'll probably be years before i buy a new one, but i plan on moving up to 8 or 9 channels when i do. does futaba allow throttle mixing in their radios?

The DX7 will allow throttle mixing. I don't use a governor with one of my helis just some aileron to throttle and elevator to throttle mixing. I haven't tried mixing rudder to throttle on the DX7, but I'm pretty sure it'll work. I see what you're saying about the rudder mixing and I may try it.

All Futaba 2.4 radios, even their low cost 6 channel unit, allow throttle mixing.

I think this is just a DX6i problem, not an indictment of all 2.4 GHz radios.

With all the problems Spektrum is having with that particular radio, it makes you wonder if they wouldn't have been better off to have never introduced it. This really low-end 6-channel TX is costing them beaucoup bucks, first with the faulty stick pot recall, and now with the faulty trainer jack issue. Methinks the Spektrum folk have some learning to do with regard to incoming inspection and dealing with component suppliers.

The Futaba 10C comes pre-programmed with cyclic to throttle mixing...

It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.

ShuRugal,
You should check the recall to see if your radio is affected, The faulty trainer jack has caused radios to short and melt some internal components.

Great, and it only costs $600. The DX6i, well, only $200.

yeah, i think for my next radio i'll go for a futaba 8 or 10 channel unit. But that's gonna be a fair ways down the road, as i have no need for more than 6 channels at present time.

For that "next" radio, you could also consider the DX7, DX7SE, X9303, 11X-Zero, 12X....

Airtronics SDG-10...

as well.
