The "hack" is to buy an Optic 6... or better.

You could try setting up planes such that all the trims are centered (including sub-trims) and control directions are the same so servo reversing is not needed.
Adjust the mechanical throws to where "100%" is the desired high rate for all models... then the ones that need a low rate you'll have to compromise on.

That assumes you have some models that use Flaperons and some that use elevons and some that use no mixing for the primary 4 controls.

Before computer radios, that was basically the way to be able to fly more than one plane with one radio.

if the model memories are stored in a separate eprom and not in the MCU itself then you could probably piggyback some more ICs in place and setup a switch to toggle between them. but then how you would initialize or format the new eproms is another problem, maybe there's a hidden service menu for this??

refer to "Hitec Flash 4&5 - Double Memory " under "Transmitter - FAQ - Additions, Adjustments, Clonepacs & Repairs." on my web page. However, if you do not possess reasonable soldering skills and equipment, an Optic 6 is an easy way out with more features.
