Help please regarding six servo setup for DSX911
« on: July 16, 2018, 18:15:54 PM »
I have followed the article by GP on the six servo setup for my DSX911 and everything works OK. I notice that the motor is still active in land mode. Is this correct?
Also is is possible to deactivate the motor somehow say on the Throttle hold switch which I normally do with all my electric planes?
Thanks

I fly an Mpx Heron using this set up and it works great - Yes the motor should be active with the shown set up. Somewhere in the description where it mentions setting up the flaps motor etc I think you can disable motor. The good thing about having the motor active is if when landing you need to extend the glide, abort or go around you just open the throttle; the flaps retract automatically until you shut off the motor therefore you don't need to remember to use the mode switch..

Basic Research is what I do - when I don't know what I'm doing!.

Thanks for your prompt reply. Makes sense how you explain it. I have just used the flap switch up to now on simple gliders but I am looking forward to setting up a phoenix 2000 using this program. Thanks again

I have since found a mix on RC World that performs the throttle kill feature Thus..

Basically, you mix Throttle against itself (-100%) with -100% Offset so the mix starts from idle - this prevents the throttle channel from moving when the throttle stick is moved, when the selected switch is in the 'On' position.
So on my radio, select a simple Mix (Mix 3 or above):
Select Throt -> Throt (Master and Slave)
Leave Position 0 at default settings (0)
Set Position 1 to -100% at low throttle, then move the stick to full (aircraft not turned on!) and set that to -100% as well.
Set Offset to -170 (don't know why, but JR uses funny numbers here)
Set Switch to Mix (or another switch that suits you).

I selected BTF to assign the Throttle Hold/Mix Switch.
This gives the option of disabling the motor in Land mode if required.
