DX5e question
« on: April 19, 2017, 08:28:00 AM »
As everyone will know,there is a supply problem with JR DMSS receivers and this is severely restricting me when it comes to flyable models, I then had a light bulb moment, I have a DX5e which came with Phoenix flight sim, this is a DMSX transmiter so no problems finding either genuine or compatible receivers, however, this being a non computer radio, am i right in thinking that I can only use it with one model ie if I took a coupe of models to the field/slope I would need to re-bind every time i changed model?  I'm thinking of using it on simple 2 and 3 channel models thus freeing up my precious JR receivers for more advanced models.

I use a DX5e to control a sandyacht, a yacht and a motorboat. I don't need to rebind each time although I need to keep a note of which channels need reversing. Mine is DSM2/DSMX capable so I stick to one type of receiver - DSM2 in my case because I suspect I'd need to rebind if using both types.

Terry is spot on, you can bind your DX5e to as many models as you like,
but you do need to check reversing, mixer, etc whenever you change models.
BTW, you realise the DX5e is a 6ch set and has rates & expo?
Cheers

It has a rate switch, reverse switches and a mix switch,  not sure how you adjust expo or the rates though?

The rates and expo are fixed Andy, they cant be adjusted but are still very worthwhile.

Activate Expo
1. Hold the aileron trim switch to the right when powering on the transmitter.
2. Release the aileron trim switch after a series of ascending tones to confirm that Expo is activated.

Deactivate Expo
1. Hold the aileron trim switch to the left when powering on the transmitter.
2. Release the aileron trim switch after a series of descending tones to confirm that Expo is deactivated.

The actual value of expo is fixed at between 15 and 20% but its definitely noticable. It is remembered during power-off, ie you dont need to repeat the exercise every time, only when choosing expo or no expo.

Theres also this, I make them for 12 delivered.
