No Flaps Flight Condition

Flight Conditions =
No Flaps

No Flaps takes priority, but this could be changed.
Positive camber on Left Slider, (LS).
No Flaps is on SW "D".
Normal, Launch & Reflex on SW "E".
Aileron to Flap coupling on SW "G" applicable to all Flight Conditions except No Flaps.

Here is the program I use for my XP-3 DLG.

Flight Conditions:

flight modes are on switch E.

I have moved the momentary switch from the right to the left, by un soldering and resoldering them.

I have the flaps on the left stick. For the most part I only use Launch and Normal flight conditions. I use the flap stick to add camber. I have found that doing this I can adjust the camber as needed.

In landing mode: Motor off, butterfly controlled by J3.
Camber controlled by Lt with adjustment from CT (can be fine tuned separately in every flight mode)

Hi Nahum,

I have downloaded your template.
But I don't understand how in LANDING mode the motor is turned off and Butterfly is linked to J3 ?
I see only one mix in your setup but I really don't understand what is it for :

So in such a mix "AUX3->AUX1" , AUX3 (J3/THROTTLE) is the "master" and in all conditions except for LANDING, if the throttle is moved, AUX1 is moved of the same amount.
But AUX1 is NULL ....

Thanks for your help,

Trex 250, 450 Pro, 550e 3GX profiles.

Here you go my 250SE-3GX, 450 Pro 3G, 550e-3GX Aurora 9 Profiles.

All of them still have 40% Expo since I was just learning and they're all FBL so they're fast enough at 40%.

Rangers Lead the Way
Anyone have a basic TRex 450 (SE V2) setup they can send me so I can understand the swash servo setup, EPA, etc. on the A9, thanks. This is a plain vanilla stock TRex with HS65s on the cyclic, Futaba tail servo, and GY401. I understand the part about neg. expo vs the Spektrum way. I cannot download any of these pgm files in here, so if I can get this in plain english, that would be great, thanks. Again, this is basic stuff: what servo goes to what channel, which need to be reversed, etc., and any quirks this radio may have with the gyro, vs the DX-7. Right now, I am learning hover - I'm a loooong time away from idle-up / 3D at this point.

Also, in terms of response, I noticed with my planes that the control inputs seem more responsive with the A9 than they were with the DX-7. I had gotten to the point with the TR 450 where I was hovering with almost all expo removed. Should I put some back in initially with the A9?

Phoenix Sim setup for 3D/scale (Heli or Plane)

A setup that works for scale and 3d planes and helis in the Phoenix RC flight simulator. The setup is a superset of my crusty old DX6i, so I can use either TX on Phoenix.


Controls are as follows:

LS - Flaps

SW(A) - [0] landing gear down, [1] landing gear up

SW(F) - [0] high rates, [1] low rates

SW(G) - [1] COND "HOLD" - throttle cut for autorotations

SW(E) - [0] COND "Normal" - linear throttle curve, no smoke & rate mode gyro
......... - [1] COND "SMOKE/HH" - linear throttle curve, smoke & heading hold gyro
......... - [2] COND "IDLE UP" - flat throttle curve, heading hold & smoke

Hi. Got a link to come to this thread. Hope you can help.

I have just bought an Aurora 9 with its 'user friendly' 131 pages of instructions. I fly Mode 1.

I note that despite it coming set as Mode 1, the tranny is set up as:
Ch1 Aileron J1
Ch2 Elevator J3 (not J2 as you would expect)
Ch3 Throttle J2 (not J3 as you would expect)
Ch4 Rudder J4

I figure the radios are all set to Mode 2 in the gimble region only for programming purposes. I hasten to add, everything works correctly in Mode 1 as the radio came set up.

My Problem: I want to keep my flaps on the throttle stick as was done on my previous radio but I also want to use the 3-way switch 'C' to be able to have Aileron/Flap camber. i.e. on - up camber, middle - off, on - down camber.

Let's just work on the Aileron/Flap Camber procedure first. To do this, firstly I worked out that I had to use 6 channels otherwise the Aileron/Flap feature would not show up on the menu.

As I have it now the channels are set to.
1 Aileron
2 Elevator
3 Flaps
4 Rudder
5 Aileron2
6 Flap2

Digressing slightly, I wonder what is the difference between Flap and Flap2 and the like?

Anyway I did all this (and with one flap reversed) but only the flaps work (not the ailerons as well) and I can't change the + and - on the graph to alter the degrees of camber I require.

If anyone can sort out this feature I will be forever grateful.

Also, can I still have the flaps manually operated on the throttle stick as well as having Aileron/Flap Camber on the 3 position switch 'C'?

I have my slope soarer set on ACRO as opposed to GLID. Is this correct?

Perhaps I am asking too much but I bought this radio because I was told you can do just about anything on any switch.

By the way, I can't open the zip files here either. Can you please send any info via PDF, JPEG or WORD?

Help With Mini Titan setup With Aurora 9

Here is my setup file for the Mini Titan V1 with all stock ACE Radio gear and Trex 600E Pro EFL

Are there no wizz kids on here who could write a PC app to display and edit these .set files?
I am surprised hitec have not done it as a cool looking PC program would help sell thier gear.

I am thinking about it. Something like what I wrote for the 4 button 4 function chargers with a USB port.

Going to take some access to Aurora design details (not likely but we can wish) or lots of making single changes to a setup and then downloading the set and comparing data to develop a road map. Once done it should not be hard to develop the code.
