I use the Spektrum DX6i for almost all of my micro fleet (Embers, J-3 Cub, Um Mustang, Champ). My initial set up for the Champ is as follows:

Full Rate: Aileron 100%, +5% Expo; Elevator 100%, +10% Expo, Rudder 100%, no Expo (Inhibited)

Dual Rate: Aileron 80%, +10% Expo, Elevator 80%, Expo +10%, Rudder 100%, no Expo (Inhibited)

Rudder settings are moot as you are not actually using the left stick for rudder. The Champ is so easy to fly, I use full rates all the time, no need for dual rate. Rudder linkage and elevator linkage set at second hole in from outer most setting. Not sure if that is stock. I'm thinking of changing both settings to gain some increased agility. Great little plane. Had a bad motor, it failed after only 18-20 flights. Replaced it with the UM P-51 Mustang motor.
