Spectrum DX6i aileron/rudder swap
today I received my Spectrum DX6i to check out 2.4 GHz. When I ordered I was asked whether I want the throttle on the left or the right stick. I said left so I got a Mode 2 type. However, according to the manual I now have throttle/rudder on the left and aileron/elevator on the right stick, but I want throttle/aileron on the left and elevator/rudder on the right. While this is not an issue for any simple model as I can just swap servos (hinging rudder to the "aileron" servo and vice versa) this approach would leave me with unusable programming settings so I'd prefer a "clean" solution.
I fancy I could swap some contacts in the TX, but that might leave me with the trimming display still showing aileron on the right-hand side and anyway I'd like to ask before I open the box of a brand-new TX.
So how can I do this? I have phoned my vendor and they said it's easy but their DX6i expert will only be back on Tuesday.

I, too, just got delivery on that radio.
I read through the manual from one end to the other.
I see no reason why you can't just plug you aileron servo into the RUD port and plug your rudder servo into the AILE port. I have done that with other radios and the radio has no idea which is which. Uhoh, all my other radios are not programmable - so you will have to be careful when you use the programming options to think about the effects the programming will have on each of your control surfaces, eh?

That wouldn't work out very well with two aileron servos. He'd have to use a Y-harness and wouldn't be able to individually adjust the aileron trims, nor would he be able to use the flaperon option or program aileron differential. There might be issues with elevon mixing for flying wings as well.
I guess edi will have to wait until Tuesday and call up the expert.
