Buddy box problems. Need assistance
I have two radios that have worked fine in the past when used as a buddy box.
The primary transmitting radio is a DX6i DSM2 and the slave box which my son uses is a JR 6ch standard TX with a digital display. Not sure of the model since I"m at work. The primary radio, DX6i flies the play fine. However, the buddy box radio, when used as a buddy box, has no up elevator control. It only has down. The LCD display on the slave shows the servo movement with up and down, but the servo doesn't go up. Since the plane flies fine on the primary box, obviously the servo works as does the primary radio. If you buddy them up, and give control to the slave radio, there is no up. Take control back to the primary and up works. I cannot test the slave radio directly on the plane since the plane receiver is DSM and the slave radio is not.
There are no mixes, all throws are good, no servo reversing, etc. Checked many times.
Seems the slave radio reads the servo moving on the LCD display, but no up in real life. What is the issue? Bad radio? Dirty contacts in the sticks? If dirty, then why does the display show the servo moving?
Thanks for any advice.
I might have to fine a standard receiver to test the slave transmitter.
