How to swop modes on DX 6
hi chaps

finally got my dx6 .... but i see its in mode 2..... as i fly mode 1.i did a servo swop to mode 1 (thottle and elevator) but the dx6 still reads mode 2 as i now have throttle on both sticks.
i also checked if i can swop the two "pots/hole stick switch" around but the wires will be to short?
before i go further can it be done........

thanks
lloyd

I purchased my Spektrum DX6 back in January via mail order here in Australia, when it arrived I realised it was configured for MODE 1 which is apperently considered the "default" for the Aussie market place.

Wanting Mode 2, I opened the back of the TX and looked at swapped over the controls but the wiring was kind of short and the whole process looked time consuming so I phoned the Australian distributor and asked if it was possible to make the change in software only, they put me through to the radio technician who informed me that as imported into Australia all sets are Mode 2 and that he has to convert every radio to Mode 1 and confirmed that indeed most of it was a software change and the control friction springs. Unfortunatly, he didn't have instructions on how to convert it back to Mode 2 once converted!

He suggested I simply return the radio and the would simply supply me with an unmodified Mode 2, which I did.

Each to his own I guess, but to me Mode 2 makes more sense than Mode 1.

I suggest you see if you return it for the correct mode you really want.

I vaguely recall a hidden menu on the DX6 during power up that allows you to change the mode... This is in addition to the regular power up menu where you reconfigure the switches. You'd still need to go in and swap springs / notchey dohickeys.

Long story short, there's a way to do it via programming, the exact procedure escapes me at the moment, but I bet if you post your question over at RCG (rcgroups.com) in their Radio section you'll get the answer you're looking for.

I even think there was a thread here about it at one time but suspect it was created by the one who must not be named.
