Orange R610 Aux1 input

Hello everyone,

I am using an ORANGE R610 6 ch receiver on my quad and would like to use my AUX1 channel to plug in a lost model alarm. It is basically a speaker I can switch on and off. The problem is I have a DX6i and have no idea how to map this to a switch on my tx to turn this on and off.

Can anyone please help?

Thanks in advance!!!!

If you are using your DX6i in acro (plane) mode, then
AUX1 channel on the R610 = FLAP switch on DX6i
GEAR channel on the R610 = GEAR switch on DX6i

In heli mode it's different:
AUX1 channel on the R610 = PITCH channel on DX6i
GEAR channel on the R610 = GYRO switch on DX6i

Check the "monitor" section in your DX6i manual for channel mapping info.

Is your lost model alarm designed to detect loss of signal, or a particular stick/channel position?

It only responds to a channel position ie switch. Thank you for the reply. Let me try again because I remember plugging it into AUX1 and trying all my switches and it would not turn off. Let me see what happens when I try again!

So I am sitting here with the DX6i in my hand. I know my flap button works because I have planes with FLAPS and I use them, also when I go to the FLAPS menu on the radio I see it move on the screen, HOWEVER when I go to MONITOR screen GEAR SWITCH MOVES but AUX1 DOES NOT with FLAP switch, so I am confused. Maybe I am missing something?

Ok, I figured it out. Turns out the Flap switch was working for Aux1, it was just that the output value was the same for both positions. NORM and LAND

If I want to use the Flap switch as a discrete (2 position only), then I just set the flap positions in the Setup menu, for NORM and LAND positions. I'm a MOMO and I forgot! Thank you so much for the help!
