Default DX6i Quad Flap programming.

Hello all,

I have just finished helping a friend build his first glow powered plane which is a Hangar 9 Ultra Stick. We opted to go with the quad flap wing, but I forgot that his radio was only a 6 channel. I know that they have the instructions for programming the JR 6 channel radios, but you will need a y-harness for the flaps and sill lose the ability to tie the ailerons and flaps together...

Does anyone have the instructions on how to set this up?? if so please help me out... I have been searching endlessly for it..

Thanks in advance

Yes with a 6ch you need a Y harness and one reversed servo for the flaps so you can't mix flaps to ailerons.

Just a reminder I wouldn't use a reversing Y with a Spektrum Rx.

There were several discussions about this here on RCU. Spektrum does not recommend the use of reversing Y with their system.

Here's the do's and dont's on the spektrum site:
