Phoenix will not recognized the Idle-up switch.
For some reason Phoenix will not recognize the idle-up switch on my DX6i or my DX8. It all started when I tried to setup the DX8 to use with Phoenix and could not get the idle-up to work, so I switched back to the DX6i and now that's not working either. So I have something messed up, Just can't figgure out what.
If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.

THEDOGGFATHER...Thanks for the tip but alas it didn't work, I even went so far as to create an new model in the TX (both), got to be a bad update.If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.

Calibrate Phoenix to your transmitter using what is essentially a reset heli model as far as settings go.

Then set up your sim model to fly as you would your helicopter, using the throttle and pitch curves you'd normally use, as well as your different flight modes.

Should work just fine using the transmitter settings.

You may have to reverse a channel or two in the process to get things to work in the correct direction, but I've always just used typical heli programming in the TX with Phoenix.

Calibrate the TX to Phoenix with default settings to get the overall travel figured out, program the TX to fly a typical heli setup.

There is no "flight mode" switch channel coming out of your TX to begin with, as the flight mode switch is controlling programming inside the TX, it is not a separate channel that Phoenix would recognize.
