Full down, to the right of second line about one mm. Then up stick, problem, at the first line. Never noticed it. I have been goin to full up and right. Setting the middle. Then full down left on both sticks. Then exit and save. All the rest of channels go to full second line and center great. Help me pls.

I’m not sure I understand the problem…

1st in monitor mode, if you have any mixes turned ON then your going to see the mix of the channels. Make sure all mixing is turned OFF.

What I think you’re calling the “second line” is called 100%, first line is 50%, end line is 125%, notice the sign (+ or -) in the images. Please use this nomenclature in your posts.

The 3 images show the Center, Right, and Left with an ELE to AIL Mix turned ON so the AIL is at unexpected locations.

Image 1 “Stick Centered” everything is normal except AIL (+2) because the mix is on.
Image 2 “Stick Back” the ELE (master servo) pulled back to -100%, so the AIL (slave servo) moves -25%.
Image 3 “Stick Forward” the ELE is pushed forward to +99%, so the AIL moves +27%.

The images are .JPEG’s you may be able to copy, edit is MS Paint and re-post to better explain what you’re seeing…

Re-assign trim switches

Great information. Are there other functions that are not in the manual?

Try this if it will not enter calibration mode...

Great post mcmatrix!!

I had to resort to trial and error to get my DX6i into calibration mode. The original instructions posted were putting my DX6i into the "switch test" mode.

I found that I could enter calibration mode this way:

1) Turn OFF your Spectrum DX6i.
2) Ensure that "AIL D/R", "FLAP/GYRO", "ELEV D/R", "RUDD D/R" are in 0 position and "GEAR/F MODE", and MIX/TH HOLD is in 1 position.
3) Push both dx6i horizontal trims at the same time to the direction of POWER switch. (Push Left trim to the right and right trim to the left) Hold them so and now turn ON your dx6i.

All other instructions worked perfectly!

All sticks are now centered correctly on the "Monitor" display.

Just wanted to chime in here and say this thread prevented me from sending my DX6i in for service. For some reason, the Elevator channel on mine suddenly had a lot more throw in one direction than the other. I could see it from the Monitor screen on the radio.

Once I recalibrated it's working perfectly now.
