Helping out a newcomer, we have everything up and running but are unable to tame hunting tail by adjusting gain in radio as it does nothing.

As per manual, 0-50 is RATE while 50-100 is HOLD.

Suspect lack of a 7channel Rx. due to norm of Aux2 for gyro gain.

Can anyone confirm this?

Did we miss something in the radio?

You have to use a receiver with that radio. When using a sat channel 7 is the gain channel for rudder.

Thanks for confirming.

Manual states either SAT "or" 7 Ch Rx and for radio 6ch "or" more.

This is for a DFC...so its the "latest and greatest" manual.

Go figure. Experience trumps manual every time.

Yamaha is correct. When you're using a Satellite as the receiver, you MUST use channel 7 to control rudder gain. Channel 5 is dedicated to a Governor.

If you use a standard external receiver with your DX6i, you can run its channel 5 output over to the rudder gain input plug, and use the gear/channel 5 control out of the TX to run the gain.

All that is in the 3GX instructions, although it could be more clearly written. I'm using an AR6115e external receiver with a 3GX setup in my 450 DFC conversion. Works great.
