In that case this thread and the O.P is probably the best help you can get for the DX18 and glider.
https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1679092

My glider experience with the DX18 is limited to a Radian Pro from Parkzone at this moment BUT the thread above is what got me going. I have since fine tune the programming for me but it should help you as it did me and many others.

I just have time to modify the settings and use switch D insteed of C => good
It's not a physical problem with the switch C.

after update my dw18 to 1.03 all seems good now with switch C.

just dev a small PC application to view and do some calculation with spektrum.tlm file and altitude sensor.
usefull for F3J/glidder users.
Any chance I can get a copy? Looks cool.

Thanks

I would like a copy too. Can I get the project source code files as well? I have been thinking about writing a program to do that, but I just can't find the time.

Whoo Hooo Just upgraded to 1.03 and all my binding issues have disappeared. Works like it should. I am still disappointed that I have not be notified for this update by Spektrum. I even re-registerted in hopes this would help. I even called HH about this and they said they would look into it and still no help.

I tried to upgrade my radio to 1.03 and it gave an error. Re-did 1.02 and went back to 1.03 with what seemed no problems...

Now I can't bind or even control any of my Helis.. My orange light comes on but then goes out while the radio is on...

Now I am friggin grounded for a nice day today... NOT HAPPY!!!!

Orange light on the RX or the Radio? Orange Light off on the radio means the radio is NOT transmitting RF signal.

What did HH/SPK say when you sent in your radio for service after being recommended to do so by Andy? You did send it in for service right?

This would not be your first issue with this radio and it was recommended you have it inspected by HH...

I just did the 1.03 update on my DX18 with no problems. I did notice that the reverse travel issue in heli mode is still there. Is HH ever going to get this problem fixed?

It's on the list, and I have worked on it. It is neither simple nor complete. And the fix will come out for all radios at the same time, since it's the same everywhere (now, since we changed the DX7s/DX8 to be more like the DX10t/DX18).
