Question

FS-i6X mapping switch C+D to channel 5 for flight modes


The Ardupilot documentation states that if you want to support 6 flight modes for a copter, then the transmitter will need to emit PWM widths of around 1165, 1295, 1425, 1555, 1685, and 1815 milliseconds. Typically this is achieved by configuring the transmitter to mix a two position switch and a three position switch (giving 6 modes in total).

I have Flysky transmitter, FS-i6X with firmware version 20-Sep-2019 and a 6 channel receiver, FS-iA6B. I would like to map the 3-position switch C and 2 position switch D to channel 5 so that I can get 6 combinations for flight modes. However, the transmitter does not give me any option to map two switches to single channel. I can only map 1 switch to channel 5 leaving me with just 2 PWM combinations.

Other than using the analog dial (which will be a pain to use for setting flight modes), how do I get 6 (or even 3) combinations on channel?

Thanks,

Figured it out. The following thread helped.
https://discuss.ardupilot.org/t/6-mo...s-i6-tx/9920/7

Here are the values that worked for my transmitter:
|End|Points|
|Ch5|Ch6|
|85|100|
|50|100|

|Mix 1|Mix 2|
|Ch5|Ch6|
|Ch5|Ch5|
|-74|74|
|-37|55|
|0|0|

Hope it helps someone.
