I got a few stuffs I want changed on my 12X if it's doable in this service menu:

- Timer alarm volume adjustment

- Timer alarm frequency adjustment

- Throttle Hold switch should stop the timer when it's ON, not activate it.

- Making the timer switch assignment dependent on flight mode (e.g. Throttle stick position when in Normal mode, and Throttle Hold switch position when in Stunt 1 mode)

The service menu is only for test and calibration. It will not do any of the things you listed.

mediclavina... the changes that you want to make are programmed into the TX and cannot be changed via a service menu. The service menu (atleast on a 9303), is used for stick centering/calibration, battery voltage settings, turning certain things on/off (such as trim beeps, etc) and has some program code options in there, which I don't mess with at all.

I ONLY use my menu for the stick calibrations, which has been a tremendous help. Otherwise, there's not really any reasons to be in there, but for your issues... well, I think that there is nothing you can change, my friend.

Thanks, oteskate and

At least I know I don't have a reason to mess up with this service menu.

Yep. I'm glad to see another person is thinking the way I do. I e-mailed Horizon about this and got a half-baked answer. I thought it was a programming error. They said it wasn't a programming error but never answered why it does not work correctly.

Anything yet??
I, too would like to access the service menu. I want access for stick calibration and for resetting the low-battery alarm value so that it's useful for by lipo power source.

nope
It must be one of the best secret menus yet. I figured that a bored 16 year old would have figured it out by now.....

Anyway, I'm gonna start looking at the cheaper, newer radios and probably ditch the 12X. I just don't use it like I thought I would.

For the price I paid, it just has too many idiosyncrasies that the newer radios do not have.

Big secrets don't seem to last this long anywhere else.... This is rather amazing to me!

I love many of the features and the versatility of the 12X but you are right about some of the idiosyncracies. I don't know why this level of sophistication wasn't attended by a firm-ware up-grade capability. It's certainly not rocket science these days!

It seems that even the new 11X is demonstrating some idiosyncracies, so I'm not excited about the option of spending another $1k just for a new set of work-arounds to learn.

Perhaps it's time to look at the Futaba line.......

Telemetry is the future (i.e. DX8). I don't understand why they are not willing to offer some sort of firmware upgrade to the 12X, especially considering how Futaba has made their 14MZ last for several years with regular firmware upgrades.Avant RC

Sorry Guys, still haven't been able to find out how to get into the DSX12/12X service menu. I agree, this must be one of the best kept secrets ever ! I don't see why I should have to send my TX away and pay a fare bit of money to just to have my TX calibrated.
The search continues ???

Maybe its time to move on the other camp and forget about this JR thing! One of these days my 12X will be in the for sale thread."I believe I can FLY"

If there was a decent open-architecture 2.4 GHz RC Tx out there, I'd throw this 12X in the bin tomorrow!

Apparently RC'ers aren't seen to be smart enough to go there......

Doesn't messing with the service menu without appropriate equipment modify the type-certificate, which the FCC or the governing authority of the country doesn't like? Don't know, just curious.

The service menu is simply a list of programming features for the radio itself. You can recalibrate your sticks and switches, turn on/off the beeps, change the battery voltage setting and so on. There is software programming stuff in there that I don't ever touch, but if you're smart enough to stay away from what you shouldn't mess with, then you're all good and having access to the service menu is definitely a helpful tool to keep your Tx working as it should.

I had to make some calibration changes to my friends Tx when he couldn't get his ESC to program correctly. That's because the throttle stick wasn't reading correctly and was messing up this setup. Once I did the change, he was happy and everything worked. And this was a NEW Tx!

Maybe someday JR will wake up and change their minds and let us use our own heads someday to make changes to our equipment. Until then... just keep flying and having fun.

Thanks for that Jeff. I think the ability to do what you described is all most of us want to be able to do. I'm sure sooner or later the method to access the service will be come common knowledge, as it has for some othe transmitters, but until then I guess we're stuck with the factory defaults.
If anyone does have any further info please do post it.
Thanks, Mike.
