Removing mixing AND mixing only 2 channels-Esky 6ch radio

Hi guys,

Is there a way to remove the mixing from an Esky Honey Bee King3 6ch radio? Basically the 6 channel model they have. (ET6I tx and EK2-0424 rx).

When I increase throttle the servos move (as they should in a heli). I want to use this radio for a plane project.

Any links, help appreciated.

Jim

Look under the batteries. If can see a switch through a hole in the case on the circuit board then unless I'm mistaken it will remove the helicopter mix so the Tx can be used for planes.

Which channels? Elevon? V-tail? Maybe.

Which channels? Elevon? V-tail? Doesn't look like it. There are only two switches. The following may help.

I need the two servos that control elevator to move in the same direction and in opposite directions depending on where the sticks are.
Already flipped the dip switches. That solved the issue with the servos moving with the throttle.

I don't think that can be done with this radio. You might be able to do it with a seperate "V"tail mixer. What info I gave you is all I know about that radio. You might check hobbypartz for a Flysky CT6B 6 channel radio for $32 free shipping. It will do what you want.

It isn't clear what you want to do, but it's obvious that this radio won't do it. It has just two basic options: helicopter mixing or no mixing.
