Nano QX DX6 Settings



When my new Nano QX came in a few weeks ago, there were no instructions for programming it with the DX6. If I just made a new model (airplane), the NQX worked, but there was no agility mode. Read on to find out how I set it up.

After browsing, I saw some DX9 settings on RCGroups (link: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2035286). I decided to modify them slightly to my needs and they worked perfectly! Note that these setting also should work for the new DX7, DX9, DX18 v2, and DX18 Stealth Edition as well as the DX6. Here they are:

Servo Setup: AUX1: Reverse; Everything else: Normal

System Setup>channel assign> next>: change AUX 1 to C

(This selects the switch that you switch between Stability and Agility modes on. I wanted to use the C switch to change from Stability to Agility. Use any switch you want. For example, if you want to switch from Stability mode to Agility mode using the B switch, change it to AUX1: D instead of AUX1: C. Personal preference.)

However, as mentioned later in the thread, the DX18 settings in the manual work. I think that I did something wrong when I tried those ones first and they didn’t work… (Quick note: DX18, DX9, DX7, and DX6 programming is the same except for the loss of channels.)

NEW Spektrum Radios for 2015

Take a look at Horizon Hobby’s latest products, the new Spektrum DX7, which looks exactly like a seven channel version of the DX6 and the Spektrum DX18 Stealth Edition.

How many DX18 editions can they have? Version 1, QQ version, version 2, and one the stealth edition. Anyway, the color is darker and it looks more like the DX9 now. Also, it comes with a carrying case and neckstrap.

I think that I’m going to get the new DX7 to replace my broken DX6, but I don’t know if I can wait!

Also, the DX7S with receiver is now only $250 and the DX8 transmitter only is $250, so even if you don’t want the DX7, it definitely brought the price of the DX7S and DX8 down!

Thanks for reading, and I’ll get last Sunday’s post out at 5 AM this coming Sunday. Subscribe, comment, and enjoy the new products!
