Six Servo Sailplane for the DX9, DX18 and DX20

Six Servo Sailplane for the DX9, DX18 and DX20

Regular price $ 24.95

This Guide and Templates are written specifically for a DX9, DX18 and DX20 for a Programming a Six Servo Sailplane provide everything you need. Import the SPM file into your radio and make the adjustments using the Guide. The SPM file contains typical default settings for a six-servo sailplane and with some minor tweaking you will be nearly ready to fly.  

The bundle includes a 133 page guide, three SPM templates for different wing servo configurations, instructions for V-Tail and how to use the Monitor for troubleshooting, setting the center of gravity, reconfigured audio files and a check list at the end on how to setup your own plane from scratch.

If you want to use telemetry, several typical sensors useful for sailplanes are already programmed.

The features include in the template are:

• As a safety feature, the radio will not turn on until you retract the flaps and turn off Launch Mode so the launch Flaps don't slam into something.  
• Elevator and Ailerons on the right stick and Rudder and Flaps on the left stick.
• Five flight modes are active, Speed, Thermal, Cruise, Launch, and Land. 

Launch Mode: (announced with voice)
• Differential rate of 90%.
• Appropriate changes in Rates, and Aileron to Rudder mix.
• Camber Slider is off to eliminate accidentally changing Launch Flap setting.   
• Aileron to Flap mix is inactive. 
• Toggle our of Launch Mode starts the timers.  .
• Camber Preset TE to 20% down with independent Elevator Trim. 

Cruise Mode: (announced with voice)
• Neutral trailing edge Camber Preset.
• Camber Slider is active. Camber Slider only droops the trailing edge.
• Appropriate changes in Rates, Differential and Aileron to Rudder mix.
• Aileron to Flap mix is available with adjustable Flap Differential.
• Snap Flap is active.
• Additional down elevator to help push over at the top of the zoom.
• Voice announces altitude automatically at pushover at the top of the zoom.

Speed Mode: (announced with voice)
• Reflexed trailing edge Preset.
• Camber Slider is active. Camber Slider only droops the trailing edge.
• Appropriate changes in Rates, Differential and Aileron to Rudder mix for faster airspeeds.
• Additional down elevator to help push over at the top of the zoom.
• Snap Flap is active.
• Aileron to Flap mix is available with adjustable Flap Differential.
• Voice announces altitude automatically at pushover at the top of the zoom and Additional down elevator to help push over at the top of the zoom. 

Thermal Mode: (announced with voice)
• Drooped trailing edge Camber Preset.
• Camber Slider is active. Camber Slider only droops the trailing edge.
• Appropriate changes in Rates, Differential and Aileron to Rudder mix for slower airspeeds. 
• Aileron to Flap mix is available with adjustable Flap Differential.
• Snap Flap is active.

Landing Mode: (announced with voice)
• Pulling the flap stick below 92% automatically activates Landing Mode.
• The 92% kick point can be modified.
• Adjustable Flap travel.
• Two methods to match Flaps so they move together.
• Either Flaperon or Crow.
• Flap to Elevator compensation expo curve with seven points.
• Appropriate changes in Rates, Differential, Aileron to Rudder mix for very slow airspeeds
• Extra down elevator to help push over in the landing zone.

• Master volume on the Right Knob. (if knob is available on your radio)
• Option for cross trims, placing the elevator trim on the Flap Stick side.
• Appropriate voices for each flight mode and telemetry if a telemetry module is installed.

• A timer that keeps track of accumulated motor run time. Timer switch is linked to the Launch Mode Switch so the timer starts automatically when you switch into Launch Mode and stops when you toggle out of Launch Mode. Start and stop as often as you like and this timer will only track accumulated motor run time.
• A timer that keeps track of accumulated flight time. Timer switch is linked to the Launch Mode Switch so the timer starts automatically the first time you start the motor and continues running when you toggle out of Launch Mode to stop the motor.

• If you have telemetry: (Either a TM1000 or one of the new telemetry enabled receivers)
• Telemetry can be recorded for later playback.
• You can track signal quality (by each individual antenna) between the transmitter and receiver and voltage without additional sensors.
• Add either an altimeter or variometer sensor and the transmitter will announce altitude when you push over at the top of the zoom.
• Add a current sensor and the transmitter will announce the gas remaining in the tank. (current left in the battery). This a WAY better method than tracking voltage.
• Add a 40G Load sensor set to record Max load and you can read the Max G load in real time. Great for working on your launch technique.
• Add a GPS sensor and you get straight line speed, distance from the pilot and location in the event you lose the aircraft.
• You can record telemetry with Switch A that is automatically saved to the SD card for later play back.
• Switch D is setup to call out altitude on demand and mAh used on demand.
