SAFE with old Dx6i


       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I just bought an Apprentice STS with SAFE and would like to know if anyone used the SAFE feature with an old Dx6i. The SAFE feature requires 3 way toggle switch that the Dx6i doesn't have. Any experiences of successfully binding to an older spektrum and mixing the Gear channel to work with SAFE?

Thanks,
Skanda

SAFE can be bound to ANY switch not in use for another function. The key to enabling it is in the binding sequence. There are plenty of you tube videos to show you how.

Re: SAFE with old Dx6i

I am going from memory here, but I believe safe on your DX6i will only work with your gear and flap switches. It cannot be assigned to any other channel since the Dx6i does not have channel assigning capability.

You will have the failsafe feature "ON" or "Off" will be on the GEAR switch.
The normal 3 position flap switch will have 1) fail safe"on" with 15 degrees limited roll/pitch, 2) 45 degree limited roll/pitch and 3) unlimited roll/pitch. On a 2 channel switch like your have on your DX6i, you only get 1 and 3. For a student like yourself who will be flying with an instructor, position 1 is more a problem than it helps. What works best for people in a flight training program is to have positions 2 and 3 on your 2 position switch. You can program your travel adjust setting on the gear to dial switch position 1 so that it triggers the 45 degree limit in the first position and unlimited in the second.
