Essentially, I'm doing lots of research, but will have to add components little by little- paycheck by paycheck... OSD, Guardian, data logger, GPS, etc...

I have access to wide open spaces with uninterrupted line of sight, so am counting on my AR6210 RX with DX6i providing adequate range for now.

So anyway... I would really appreciate help with 2 questions...

1. Can I control the Guardian through my DX6i TX?
2. If I expect to lose range on DX6i before AV TX (due to high power AV TX), how can I configure my FS in such a way that the RTH will save me in the event of loss of signal or DX6i failure/power, etc...?

I have searched high and low and cannot seem to find answers to these questions. Thanks!!
Answer #1 yes, in theory. Answer #2 I am not familiar with the programing of the DX so I don't know how it handles failsafe but the ET system is pretty flexible so I would venture a hesitant, "yes".

The DX6i is a bad way to start FPV. That is why you can't find info because folks ditch the DX (any version) very quickly as it is useless for anything but putt putt park flyers. Get a different TX. Check the Video Piloting Forum. You will be glad you did.

Best of luck to you,
