6 Servo Glider and 6 Channel Tx
« on: August 08, 2017, 16:31:31 PM »
Afternoon All,

I've picked up a Pelikan Pike Electric V Tail Gilder, but my JR  X2610 handset is only a 6 channel. Is there anything I can do with the set up to maximise what I have?

Thanks Martin

Connect the motor ESC to the switch controled channel, use a "Y" lead (with reverser on one servo) for the flaps. Connect the flaps to the normal "motor" channel.

Good solution Patmac, that's exactly what I do when I fly my Multiplex Cularis with a Spectrum DX6i transmitter.
Unfortunately I wrote off my original Cularis and I'm now in the process of building a new one.
This time I will make sure I don't inadvertently put a park flyer receiver on board when going looking for and finding thermals!  :banghead:

Thanks, daft question but how does that work with the controls? Does the switch then enable the motor on / off ?

Yes, all you doing is using the motor to climb to height to go gliding  :af so it's just like having an onboard Hi-Start/Bungee. On my electric gliders I have the motor control on a slider and crow braking on the stick.

Hate to say it, but if you keep buying gliders like this, you may soon be needed a radio upgrade.......................... :''

The 6 ch Tx has served me well for my hanger but I agree an upgrade is needed!
So my next question is how many channels do I need for my Pike? I want to have crow braking and maybe full camber?

Minimum 7 channels, but check the radio does all the required mixes. I had a Futaba FF6 radio and when I needed 7 channels I went with a MPX Cockpit Sx (35mhz) which led to me buying a full house glider as I could then do the aileron-flap mix, full camber and crow braking  :D
