If using a dx6i, simply use the dual rates given and use one of the several mixes given:

My timer is set to 5:00

High rates:

Aileron: 100% rates, 20% expo
Elevator: 100% rates, 15% expo
Rudder: 100% rates, 5% expo

Middle rates

Aileron: 75% rates, 10% expo
Elevator: 75% rates, 10% expo
Rudder: 5% rates, 100% expo

(This rudder dual rate is set up on the same switch as the speed brakes are on. This is to protect the servos on the rudder when speed brakes are deployed. So when rudder movement is given when speed brakes are deployed, little movement occurs)

Low rates:

Aileron: 60% rates, 10% expo
Elevator: 60% rates, 10% expo
Rudder: 5% rates, 100% expo

(This rudder dual rate is set up on the same switch as the speed brakes are on. This is to protect the servos on the rudder when speed brakes are deployed. So when rudder movement is given when speed brakes are deployed, little movement occurs)

Mixes:

For greater agility/roll rate: I adjusted this mixes specifically as to not overdrive the servos, but to give much greater pitch/roll responsiveness.
Mix 1: AIL>RAL
Rate: 34% 20%
Offset: 0%
Trim: Inh
Switch: (Select desired switch)

Mix 2: ELE>LAL
Rate: 34% 20%
Offset: 0%
Trim: Inh
Switch: (Select desired switch)

For speed brakes, here are the following mixes: NOTE, in order to create speed brakes, you need to disconnect the rudder y-harness from the brick and plug the rudders in their own port. "Dual rudders" must be selected in wing type as well.

Mix 3: RUD>FLP
Rate: 100% 100%
Offset: 0%
Trim: Inh
Switch: On

Mix 4: FLP>RRD
Rate: -100% -100%
Offset: 0%
Trim: Inh
Switch: On

Flap system:
Pos 0: 0% 0%
Pos 1: -90% -10%
Pos 2: 90% -10%
Switch: (Select desired switch)
Speed: 1.4s

For a better hand launch, use the following mix as it gives a little up elevator before you throw the aircraft:

Mix 5: -A->LAL
Rate: 0% 15%
Offset: 0%
Trim: Inh
Switch: (Select desired switch)

For reduced torque effect when throttle is applied use the following mix. This mix was done on a curve mix with 7 evenly spaced out points and was done with the DX18: This mix can be tweaked for your aircraft.

Mix 6: THR>RAL
1: 0%
2: -2%
3: -3%
4: -4%
5: -5%
6: -6%
7: -6%
Expo: Act
Trim: Inh
Switch: On

The following section contains experimental mixes that reduce coupling in knife edge. They can be tweaked for maximimum effect.

This first pair of mixes lowers the amount of inboard rudder deflection:

Mix 7: RUD>RRU
Rate: -10% 0%
Offset: 0%
Trim: Inh
Switch: (Select desired switch)

Mix 8: RUD>LRU
Rate: 10% 0%
Offset: 0%
Trim: Inh
Switch: (Select desired switch)

Mix 9: RUD>FLP
Rate: 0% 30%
Offset: 0%
Trim: Inh
Switch: (Select desired switch)

The following mixes allow deflection of only the outboard rudder;

Mix 10: RUD>RRU
Rate: -100% 0%
Offset: 0%
Trim: Inh
Switch: (Select desired switch)

Mix 11: RUD>FLP
Rate: 0% -100%
Offset: 0%
Trim: Inh
Switch: (Select desired switch)

The following mixes mix in a little bit of down delection of an aileron when rudder is applied. i.e left rudder input is given, left aileron deflects downwards:

Mix 12: RUD>LAL
Rate: 20% -20%
Offset: 0%
Trim: Inh
Switch: (Select desired switch)

Mix 13: RUD>RAL
Rate: -20% -20%
Offset: 0%
Trim: Inh
Switch: (Select desired switch)



Hopefully all of this helps somebody out. Who says you can't put thirteen mixes into a tiny stryker
WOW!!!! Thats a lot of settings!!!! Obviously, I have some questions now.

1. Are speed brakes necessary? What do you use them for?

2. With Mix 5, do you turn it off right after hand launching?

3. What is coupling in knife edge?

4. What are outboard and inboard rudders?

Sorry if those questions are sort of stupid...first time flying a wing (thats what a stryker is right?).
