USB and DX6i - Not all channels recognized and/or properly

Post by Learn2Fly1 » 08 Mar 2015 17:57

I am having an issue finding a USB adapter that recognizes all 6 channels properly so I can use my throttle hold switch and my IU/F-Mode switch. I have a model configured in my DX6i that has a full pitch curve and throttle curve etc per other posts I've read here or on HeliFreak. I have a blue one (SAILISimulator---XTR55G2FMSController) that sees 4 channels and 4 buttons and I have two grey ones (PPM) that see 5 channels and three buttons. I could not attach the files here as XML or TXT so here are their contents below.

The "SAILISimulator---XTR55G2FMSController" adapter does see all 6 channels but only 4 on the sticks calibration screen. It sees the "gyro"/5th channel as button 1 and AUX/pitch/6th channel as button 2. I can use the "gyro" switch for the autorotation function for now but don't have a way to switch from IU1to IU2 without using the keyboard. Can the AUX/Pitch/6th channel be mapped back to something on the sticks calibration screen?

The "PPM" adapter only shows 4 channels with moving signals on the sticks calibration screen and no buttons functioning on the buttons screen. XRotation appears to be the missing pitch channel but shows no moving signal on the sticks screen.
