I just bought an XG11 and I am wanting to assign the 3 position aux-2 switch to receiver aux 3 and 4 on a scale heli. What I am wanting to do is pos-0 be the off position, Pos-1 turn the navigation lights on and Pos-3 turn a search light and the navigation lights remain on.
I have been messing with it and reading the manual for three days now and I know there is a way, but can't figure it out.
I appreciate any feedback or mentoring that can be given to me.

Thanks

Richard

Just go into device select in the systems menu, highlight and click on the 'device' next to Aux 3 and a window will appear with all of the switches. Now just physically move the switch you want to use and it will auto assign it for you.

Do the same on the other channel too.

Thanks Steve,

I have the switch selected and it is a 3 position switch. I would like for it to turn one set of lights on in the second position and turn the other on in the third position. Right now, when I turn the switch to the position 2, both come on in position 2 and 3

I can't figure out how to separate them between position two and three.

Well I have never done that but if you are using the power direct from the reciever for the lights I would think you would have to mix a channel to it and hook the other lights up on it so the switch would keep that one off in the middle position. Then at the top position it would be set to where both come on. I am not saying I am right on this but it's an idea

There is power being supplied separately, the channels are for the signal on/off. I am studying the mix channels, but in the manual, it doesn't talk about that type of mix. I know its capable of doing it, I just can't get seem to figure it out yet.
Separating position 2 and 3 is the only thing that has me, the lights are on together in both positions... and they are both off in the 0 position.

Thanks

Richard

You would need to make the master channel be off at -100 and on at 0. That would turn on yours leave I think would be off at 0 I think and on at + 100. That should turn on the second set I think. I have never done this but I would think it would be something like that

You may also want to considered using the "stick position switch" to turn on the nav lights and have the 3 position switch turn off and on the search light.

Sorry- not been back to the thread recently!

I'd assign one of the channels to the switch you want to use and then do a program mix from that channel to the other one and pick the switch position to be just the one you want it to be. May take a bit of messing in the mix to get it to come on at the right time so use a curve mix and you can play with the numbers.

Not tried it myself, but should work.
