Six Servo Sailplane Programming for the DX9, DX18 and DX20

Six Servo Sailplane Programming 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.

Here are the main features of the SPM files.

• As a safety feature, the radio will not turn on until you retract the flaps and turn off Launch Mode.
• Master Volume on the Right Knob.
• Adjusting Trim locations, resolution and Common vs Flight Mode specific.
• 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. All five flight modes are selected from just two, three position switches.
• Landing Mode activates automatically when you pull down the flap stick.

Launch Mode: (announced with voice)

• Switch Selectable with priority over all other flight modes except Landing Mode.
• Very high Aileron Differential rate in excess of 90%.
• Appropriate trailing edge preset, Flaps and Ailerons droop 15 to 24 degrees.
• Appropriate changes in Rates, and Aileron to Rudder mix.
• Aileron to Flap mix is inactive.
• Left and Right Trimmer for making last minute changes right before launch.

Cruise Mode: (announced with voice)


• Neutral trailing edge Camber Preset.
• Appropriate changes in Rates, Differential and Aileron to Rudder mix.
• Aileron to Flap mix is active with adjustable Differential for both Ailerons and Flaps.
• Snap Flap is active.
• Additional down elevator to help push over at the top of the zoom.
• Back slider adjust Camber.
• Voice announces altitude automatically at pushover at the top of the zoom.

Speed Mode: (announced with voice)

• Reflexed trailing edge Preset.
• Appropriate changes in Rates, Differential and Aileron to Rudder mix.
• Additional down elevator to help push over at the top of the zoom.
• Snap Flap is active.
• Aileron to Flap mix is active with adjustable Flap Differential.
• Back slider adjust Camber.
• Voice announces altitude automatically at pushover at the top of the zoom.

Thermal Mode: (announced with voice)

• Drooped trailing edge Camber Preset.
• Appropriate changes in Rates, Differential and Aileron to Rudder mix.
• Aileron to Flap mix is active with adjustable Differential for both Ailerons and flaps.
• Snap Flap is active.
• Back slider adjusts Camber.

Landing Mode: (announced with voice)

• Pulling the flap stick below 92% automatically activates Landing Mode.
• Adjustable Flap travel.
• Two methods to match Flaps so they move together.
• Either Flaperon or Crow.
• Flap to Elevator compensation on a seven-point curve.
• Appropriate changes in Rates, Differential, Aileron to Rudder mix.
• Extra down elevator to help push over in the landing zone.

Timers:

• A 10-minute count down timer and a stopwatch with voices linked to the Launch Mode Switch so the timer starts automatically when you switch out of Launch Mode.
• A timer that keeps track of total accumulated flight time. Same start sequence as the 10-minute count down.

Telemetry: (Either a TM1000 or one of the new telemetry enabled receivers and appropriate sensors are required) 

• 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.
