Turn on Trainer function in the DX8.

Select Slave or the proper master setting depending on what the DX8 does in your buddy system.

I wanted the 6i to be the master and the Dx8 to be the slave..With both Tx,s on the Dx8 screen showed "Slave"..As i under stand it the Master is in the Instructor hands and the slave is in the student hands... Is there an other step to get the system to function???

The master is the radio that is BOUND to the Plane or heli.

The Slave is the radio that is NOT BOUND to the Plane.

If you are using the DX6i as Master then this means you must have it BOUND to the Plane and the DX8 muxt be in SLAVE mode and also must be powered OFF

Hi ,,The Dx8 is bound to the plane and is therefore the master and the 6i is the slave .. The slave is in the instructors hands.. The master is in the students hands.. Is this correct???
Thanks for the help>...Best

That part is correct.

That is incorrect. The Master (Instructor) has control until he relinquishes it to the Slave (Student).

The DX8 is bound to the model and the Instructor holds it. When he wants control to go to the Student, he pushes the Trainer button. When the student gets in trouble, the Instructor releases the button and flies the aircraft.

Correct. Plugging in the cord will power up the slave radio.
