Actually I might be on what you are saying here. Like JLT, I use them on most of my projects.

But, sometimes I get them with the two holes smaller which then break when you insert the 2 pads together. The solution is to widen it a little so it helps, especially when taking off (if ever).

So do I, I just crashed my 4th one and its been repaired so many times just like the others its time to get another 1.

I also have 2 other new ones directly from the factory for building for high speed flying. (these came in 1/2's so you can do a lot of internal modifications while they are apart. 4s 800W with 5 - 8 inch cut of each wing. These are fast but not relaxing to fly. Stock AXN is very relaxing and fun to fly in any conditions, I find it fairly aerobatic with the right throws, I fly mine in 15 - 25 mph wind with no issues while everyone else is grounded.

My 7th got caught in some high winds at night on a friends farm. The neighbour about a kilometer away brought it back the next day. I was so happy to see it again! Really surprised me how much I like it

Basic DX6i set up programme for AXN Floater

Hi, as a newcomer can anyone show me a simple basic programme set up for a dx6i transmitter / floater combo. that's suitable for a novice.
Cheers.

Cant help you with DX6I, I am using Taranis.

But as a newbie I recommend that approximatly 40% Rudder is mixed with Aileron, then its possible to fly using only right stick (mode2), much easier.

hi V4, what would you like to know about DX6i program for this plane, basically just choose plane from the new model and you are done with the basics, there are no special settings, no flaps etc
you may need to reverse a servo when you are checking surface movements with stick movements
i found the "hi 5 " method from flite-test works great, stand behind the model and as you move the stick to that surface it should pup up to give you an imaginary hi-5
ie. move aileron right, and it should move up, move left and left aileron moves up, pull back and elevator pops up
the only part that moves in same direction is your rudder, left is left movement and right is right movement

The absolute basic "programming" for the DX6i and a 6 Channel Receiver is achieved after proper setup:
1: bind the DX6i (Tx) and your Reciever (Rx)
2: Plug the Esc into the throttle port, likewise the aileron 'Y' lead into the Aileron port, rudder to rudder and elevator to elevator. (these will depend on the type/manufacturer of Rx you have)
3. remove the Prop
4. Check to see you have removed the propeller
5.Turn it on (plug in battery etc..)
6. check that all surfaces are level when all stick positions are at rest. (If not adjust mechanically until they are. - obviously you turn it off without moving the servo and adjust then turn it back on again and check until you get it right)
7. check that all surfaces move the direction they should (do this slowly watching each surface and make sure there is no binding or stress happening on any servo in the process - zipping the sticks from one side to the other is not the way to do this ... if you don't know which way it should go ... ask someone - we are not born with this knowledge)
8. Double check that all surfaces move in the correct direction (consider using mechanical differential on the ailerons - dealt with elsewhere in this thread)
9. check how far each surface moves at full deflection - these are you current maximum throws. They WILL all be too much for a novice except probably the ailerons.
10. Now we do the basic programming: in your Tx with the plane still 'armed' (and the prop still removed!)

The simplest thing to do is just go to Travel Adjust in the DX6i and reduce the % in each control (rudder and elevator) until the maximum throw for each surface is about 10 degrees (no more that 15 degrees!) from the rest position checked in both directions. That is it. Nothing fancy, no dual rates, no mixes - make sure the prop spins the correct way (motor spinning clockwise when viewed from the back). turn it all off put the prop back on - get your CoG correct - get some help from someone who can fly and .... go fly it.

Have fun ...
