Help!
Hitec 555 channel 6 mod

Hi all,

I need to modify a recently acquired Hitec 555 to use it for flaperons. This entails changing the fifth channel from channel 5 to channel 6. It is an easy mod that was documented in an RCM article long ago. Unfortunately the links posted on the 'net to that article are no longer active. Does anybody have a scan of the article to post?

I don't mean adding additional channels. As I recall there are no extra pigtails added to the receiver, just that the fifth channel responds to the "flap" 6th pulse from the transmitter rather then the "retract" fifth.

Thanks,

John in Kalifornia

It used to be something that we did tell people how to do back in the day but it wasn't difficult to really mess everything up and render the receiver inoperable. I wouldn't advise the procedure, we don't have pictures of the procedures anymore that I could even post so it would be really difficult to show you exactly what to do just with text.

See if what you need is in this thread - http://www.rccanada.ca/rccforum/showthread.php?t=44793

Probably better to just get a new receiver though.
