Happy landings!
I have the dx6i too. I plan to have flaps down pos. 1 on the flaps switch and flaps down pos. 2 mixed to the gear switch ("mix 1" or "mix 2"). On the flaps switch one can have some elevator mixed in. On the gear switch I am not sure though how to do with the elevator mix...

Maiden was a success. About scared the stuff out of me when it took off and banked hard left over my head. Was able to land and add some trim. After that it was fun, went through two 2.2 packs. Had 10-15 mph wind, which mushed the controls a bit.

The flaps worked well on the gear switch - barely pitched the nose up. Was able to do some really low passes and touch-and-goes.

Thanks John
I'm adding more pictures in the album.
I had the Archer also but didn't get to find a good ground surface to fly it from.
Sad because I had a photographer

Paul, you know you've done well when it's hard to tell whether the pictures are of a full-sized plane, or a model.

It would be easy to believe these are pics of the real thing!

They did such a nice job on the mold that it was well worth the effort to go further in details
