Hi,

I have just now become an owner of DX 18QQ (US version, no. 1564).

Got it at a good price of 800$ and has been used only one day for 3 or 4 flights by a planker.

Will sell of the AR12120 receiver with X plus expansion module. PM me for offers. The receiver has been used only for 3 or 4 flights.

Now, i need help of you guys. Will convert it to mode 2. I was just reading the manual and have started doing programming of Nano Cpx. changed the throttle curves accordingly.

I have assigned throttle hold to switch A. How do i assign the Normal, Idle up 1 and Idle up 2 to Switch G ??

I have throttle hold on left and stunt modes on right in JR dsx 7 , so i prefer it this way.

One more question: I dont know if the planker registered it at spektrumrc.com or not and whether he has updated it to 1.04d software update. How to know this?

Thanx in Advance and i will keep bugging you guys whenever i am stuck.

Doc

I have the dx18 non qq. To do this on my tx i press down scroll roller and turn tx on. This takes you to system setup. Then go to flight mode setup.. ThIs is where you select what 3 position switch . In your case all you do is toggle switch g and the tx will select that switch.. If you havnt created a spektrum act do so.. Once done click on wht i think says register system.. Put in serial number from tx.. If it has already been registered then it should say so At this point.

shut up and fly

you can also go into the setup menu by pressing both buttons on the left, when you are in the main screen. Don't have to power cycle to get to the setup screen, that's a nice feature

On the QQ, "System Setup" is one of the options in the "Function List" menu.

Hi all thanx a lot for helping me out.

I have gone into the system setup, then to flight mode set up. Here there are three options

Flight Mode 1: Switch G
Flight mode 2: ??

Throttle hold: Switch A

I just got a little confused, Flight mode 1 n 2 correspond to Idle up 1 n 2 Right?

When i toggle down to Flight mode 2 : It hasnt got Switch G available.

Stuck?

Flight mode 1 is for the normal-idlup1-idlup2 that most of us use. Flight mode 2 is for if you want to add additional ones like idlup3-idlup4-idlup5 (assigned to another switch). Most of us would not use this and just leave flight mode 2 blanked/inhibited.

Just read and re-read the manual a few times and play with all the menus to find where all the main things are and how to set them. Pretty easy/intuitive Tx once you know where everything is located.

Cheers,
TomC
