copied from above.

make sure on the prop if you are using an APC prop that you use the right size insert in the prop for the motor shaft size. It should be a snug fit so the prop doesn't wobble. The insert is tapered so put the smaller end into the prop first, after the prop you put on a washer and then the prop nut.
Ok i have the silver washer that came with the spinner and then i have a plastic waser that came with the prop, i do have the right size washers on for the size of the motor shaft. I have them in this order.

Silver washer which fits in the back of the back plate, so i put that on. Then i put the right size plastic washer that came with the prop in the back of he prop, so i pu that on. Then i have the bigger diamater washer and nut that came with the motor. Now the bigger washer is slanted on one side which is what you were calling taperd right? So the washer is like pointing on one side so do you want that pointing in tarwds the motor so the taper centers the prop?

Let's get the terminology right so we are talking about the same things.

The spinner is made up of two pieces. the back plate and the spinner cone. They go together.

The motor came with a washer and nut, this is a metal washer and nut and the washer is tapered on the front. there is a prop adaptor mounted to the front of the motor and this metal washer and nut go on to that prop adaptor.

The prop came with a bunch of adapters to fit different sized motor shafts or in this case, prop adaptors. This little plastic adapter is tapered on one end so it makes it easier to insert into the back of the prop.

The spinner back plate goes on first. Then the prop goes on, the writing on the prop should always be facing forward. The little plastic adaptor should already be inserted in the back of the prop. Then you put the metal tapered washer on and the nut. The metal tapered washer should have the taper on the front side of the washer, facing the nut. then the spinner cone goes on and it gets screwed into the spinner back plate.

Did you tighten the screws for the prop adaptor attaching it to the motor? Did you use loctite on them and the screws that hold the x-mount to the back of the motor? If not, keep an eye on them because they might loosen up.

In your DX6i you select your wing and tail type. your wing type is dual aileron

AILE is right aileron
AUX1 is left aileron

The tapered part of the metal washer that holds the prop on will point away from the prop, towards the nut.

Trim the elevator or horizontal stab a little so it doesn't rub.

I dident know what the rubber bands were for but there for the wing hooks right? Should i put on more than one at a time? Also when im flying full power and its just flys level with no stick input and when i go inverted if i have to add abit of input up elevator then that means i have to slide my battery up further right? If i have the CG right will i even hav to add any up ELEV when i go inerted?

For the rubber bands, just use one, but wrap it around at least 3 or 4 times to make sure it holds the wings together.

Yes, if you flip inverted and you need to add UP elevator, your pack definitely has to go up further.

As for where it should be, depends on your flying style. Personally, I like to lean a little more towards the precision side, which means I like a slightly more forward than neutral CG. Translation "when inverted, I need to hold a little bit of down elevator to keep the plane flying level."

At worst, you want want to be neutral, which means if you fly level right side up, or inverted, you shouldn't need any elevator to fly straight and level.

Hope that helps.

Exactly as said above. Roll inverted and if the plane goes towards the ground then it is nose heavy and the pack can be moved back. Slightly nose heavy or neutral is a good place to start

If the rubber bands are thin, use a few of them (3-5). Even if the rubber bands are thick, I would use a minimum of 2. Eventually the rubber bands will break, so unless you check your plane carefully before each flight, use a few rubber bands for extra security in case a single one breaks.
