Programming a Six Servo Sailplane with a Motor for the DX6, 6e, 7, 8G2 and DX8e
Frustrated with the programming challenges that come with Ailerons and Flaps on a Sailplane? Tired of conflicting "how to" posts on line? Well, if your time is valuable, this Guide and Prepared Templates are for you.
Everything you need for a Six Servo Sailplane with a motor is provided. This bundle includes a 154 page Guide, three prepared templates for different wing configurations for you to import to your Transmitter along with 23 new Flight Mode voices and a file to reorganize your audio files. Control rates, Flight Modes, Differential, and much more are already programmed.
This latest version includes Cascading Priorities to reduce pilot load in the event of an emergency bailout.
The Guide starts off explaining how to import the files into the Transmitter, rename and organize them. With the Transmitter in your lap, the Guide walks you through the all the features and walks you through how the programming works.
Once a prepared Template is imported, the guide shows you how to make modifications to the linkages and how to use Global Features to setup a neutral sailplane. After this step, the preset values in the prepared templates will be very close.
The Guide then shows you how to modify the template for your sailplane.
The guide includes several different Flight Mode setups and several different methods of controlling the motor speed. There is even a method that puts both Flaps and Throttle on the same stick.
An entire chapter is included concerning Telemetry and how to do things like automatically announcing altitude at the top of the climb and set warnings for low voltage.
The final chapters, will help the pilot stepping up to an aileron sailplane for the first time and discuss the terminology that comes with it along with how to reduce adverse yaw.
The guide winds up with how to trim the sailplane at the field, make critical CG decisions and how to set the elevator trim for each Flight Mode.
