Programming different models on DX6i

Can someone explain to me how to program different models on the DX6i? I have set up one model, but can't see how to set up a second one. When I go to Models on the menu, it just lists the one I already have. How do I start a second, or third model without affecting the first one?

Can someone sort of list the steps one by one to get me started?

Thanks! I really appreciate it.

Here is a link to the manual online. It is 13mb if you need to downlaod it.

http://www.horizonhobby.com/ProdInfo...nual-LoRes.pdf

Here are the basic steps.

Turn the transmitter on
Press the roller to access the Adjustment List

Press and hold for 1 sec, if you hold the roller button for 2-3 sec the setup menu comes up. You can scroll to the last menu option in the setup menu which will be the Adjustment menu.

Turn the roller wheel once to the right to highlight the Model Select option
Press the wheel, this should bring up the model select menu
Turn the wheel to the right, and the model number on top should change. Model1, Model2 etc.
Press the roller and that models settings will be downloaded to the radio.

On the main screen you should see the MDL# "plane name" Displayed.

It is much easier if you name the models!

And off you go. Make sure you follow the binding instructions to enable model safe. This will prevent selecting the wrong model. If the wrong model is selected it won't work, adn you'll know you almost lost a plane.

Hope this makes sense, it's still early yet
