You guys are all talking about tweaking your radios to make them do things that they weren't originally planned for while I'm still figuring out all of the functions of mt DX6 Gen 2. ����

I have a DX6 that I upgraded from DSM to DSM2/DSMx. Good radio but a real pain in the neck to program. Needless to say I don't use it anymore.

Free caddy to transport some spare props in my flight bag. You might need to spend some $$ on beer while you're emptying the chip can but it's all good....

Never had a DX6i, but all my FB that 'HAD' one sure cursed at it a lot. With the new DX6 all I did was curse at the instructions. The best thing you can do to understanding it, is to first.............. throw the terrible instructions in the round file.

I've had a number of programmable TXs in different flavors and Spektrum instructions are the worst by far. I just started bopping and beeping around in my DX6 G2 and it finally started to make sense.

But, my phone is another story.....................

Congratulations raw89 for getting us back on topic as I was beginning to think this was a thread that belonged under the radio forums. Not free but I do use cheap clear pencil cases of different sizes to take spare props to the flightline.

I went a little crazy this year buying props of different sizes and pitches while I was learning what all the options had in the real world. I had to bin all my props into separate ziplock sandwich bags to keep them organized.

Same here. Because I fly multirotors as well I usually travel to the flying site with a bunch of assorted sizes in my backpack. But after a while those bags start deteriorating.

empty storage cylinders that once held bottles of scotch are great for propellers

and you're obliged to ensure that they no longer hold bottles of scotch

I use 3 inch long 10x24 machine screws through the prop center holes with wing nuts to hold them all together tightly and well organized.

Or you could make a hat band like the alligator teeth hat band that Crocodile Dundee wore!
