Glasair sportsman virtual instructor and Dx7s

I just did my maiden flight on the glasair sportsman today using the dx4e transmitter. First, I have to say that this plane was a blast to fly, I had never flown a rc plane before, except on simulator... I ran three batteries and flew about 40 minutes without a glitch, did at least 10 landings and the plane is still in one piece! Now comes the question... I want to bind the sportsman to my dx7s and retain the use of the VI function... I know the binding will probably be straightforward, but how do I assign the vi function to one of my buttons? Does anybody know what channel the Vi is on or how to accomplish this?

Welcome! Good stuff, a sim and this plane are great for people starting out that can't get or don't want help .... I'm a DIY kind of personality and loved the challenge. I found the sim my key to some initial success. Like all/most beginners had to learn what winds to avoid and little lessons as I went to smaller more convenient areas.

The VI is assigned to the gear switch on my DX7s. Someone on the Glasair main page said that in 0 mode the VI was on. It is the opposite on my TX. The VI is working with the gear lever in the I mode.
