Question
DX9 and PZ Sukhoi SU-29MM Setup

I hope this is the correct group. Could someone please advise me on setup for my DX9 and this new Parkzone Sukhoi SU-29MM ?

Right now the plane wants to correct itself in *any* of the three modes. I've flown it twice and got extremely lucky to get it down both flights. I'm not new to the hobby yet find the manual a little difficult to understand. I have reversed AUX 1.

Thanks for any help...

Kevin

From the Parkzone Sukhoi SU-29 MM thread

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...&postcount=935

Here's a DX9 custom spm file that's been working well.

SPM for DX9 with Ele Mix
A- (Aux1) 0-Normal, 1-Self Level
C- (Buddy Box)0-instructor, 1-2 Student
D-(Gear) Mode 0-precision,1-3D, 2-Stagility
F-(Rates/Expo All three surfaces) 0-high, mid-1, low-2
H-(Throttle Cut)- 0-Normal, 1- Throttle Cut
I-Time left

There is Elevator mix to ensure in precision mode elevator is 100% high rate and mid rate. (low rate is 80%.) This allows you to have low and mid rates while on 3D/Stagility mode since it's mixed to D position 0.

Big changes from manual
-Self level mode moved from temporary I button to Switch A. I can't reach the "I" button while flying but it works well for time left.
-Reversed Gear to put Stagility and Precision in different spots. In case I'm flying 3D and I start to see oscilation, it's much easier for me to flick my finger up from the throttle to kick on Precision mode.

I start my flying with all switches up (on Zero). Then flip to 3D mode and Low/mid rate to practice maneuvers hitting panic as necessary. Then bring all switches back up to zero to land. When I buddy box someone I just start them off with low rates and bring up the rates as we go. Actually lately I've been taking off/landing in low rates. It's so much easier to have less aileron/rudder but still have plenty of elevator.

Good luck!

I am on a macbook pro, I just purchased the Sukhoi and the Dx9.

I wanted to try and upload the pre made setup spm file that was posted here. So I downloaded it. Inserted my memory card and attempted to drag and drop the spm file and even download the file to the card with no luck. It simply will not allow me to drag and drop copy and paste etc?

Does anyone have any help for me?

I know the dedicated thread has over 120 pages and I just want a step by step account for setting up the dx9 to the sukhoi I dont mind doing it manually if someone knows what page that info is on.

Or if they have a file I can download please contact me here or via email at;

Thank you!

Make sure the card is formatted, FAT or FAT32.

Make sure the write-protect slide is not causing you problems.

Then it should drag and drop right on.
