I am new to the hobby, but quickly out grew my DX6i, so I now have the DX7s, which I am very happy with (wish it had a light though). I've searched my manual, & this thread, could someone tell me what the "aux pot 2" dial is for?

The "knob" is used to adjust something over its entire range as opposed to simply using a switch.It is an Auxillary channel so it could be used for whatever you wish.

Also the knob isnt necessarily tied to the Aux2 channel.It can be assigned to work various functions.

It is most likely the default switch for the Aux2 channel.

I love way my DX7 feels in my hands...

Have yet to lay hands on a DX7s/8, but i have heard its very nice, not at all like the DX6i....

I am using the dx6i, but i have never really been fully Comfortable with the way it feels, too clunky.

So dx7s would be nicer with regards to ergonomics?

Yes, you really should put one in your hands and then go from there.

sd card

how do search the sd card to find the model that you are looking for? I put 7 models that are easily rebound and transferred them to the card. When I open the sd card file I do not see any listed, but when I put the card into my computer, all of the models are there.

You might have Windows configured wrong. Go to the Tools pulldown, pick Folder Options. Go to the "Hide extensions for known filetypes" and un-check the box.

This will let you see the REAL name of the file. My guess is that you have files named abc.spm.txt or something like that, and it's hiding the .txt portion (or whatever they are). I get that question a lot.

It was warm, not hot. It shows 5.3-5.2, rather then 5.4-5.5. Hopefully I havn't shorted the battery life too much.....

It should be fine.Ive found that usually when a pack gets weaker it comes off charge with more voltage.5.4-5.6 on a 4cell pack

I did that to mine, and the battery was dead in a week or less. Went with lipo and no problems since. Turns off charging properly when charging lipo.
