DT Receiver - Rx61 - Programming


PRODUCT: Rx61
INSTRUCTIONS: v6.0.1

1. PROGRAMMING APPROACH:

Settings in the Rx can be changed using a standard Tx or a special Programa device (PROG1). Both use the structure in the table below. One output or feature (ie: one row in the table) is programmed at a time. Levels 1-2 usually select the output and Levels 3-5 change its characteristics. [KEYWORDS] provide links to detailed descriptions of each feature. The 'Tx' column is for 'Tx Change' mode.

Channels

Step 3

Step 4

Steps 5-9

Options are organised into menus usually relating to a type of output.
Level 1 and 2 usually select the output number (eg: 2-flash for 'P' then 4-flash for 'P4').
You select a row in the table above and make up to 5 choices, one for each level.

Invoke programming mode:
1. Switch Transmitter on.
2. Ch3 (Elevator) should be normal, not reversed.
3. Hold left/right sticks (Ch2/4) in towards middle of Tx (use rubber band if necessary).
4. Switch Receiver on and wait for the Led to flicker very fast.
5. Center all sticks.

Make choices:
6. The led flashes the setting for the first 'Level' (eg: 1-flash = Motor output 'H').
7. Yes = push the Ch3 (Elevator) stick forward (to top of Tx) to accept this option and advance to next Level.
8. No = pull the Ch3 (Elevator) stick back (to bottom of Tx) to see next option for same Level.
9. Continue through all Levels until Led comes on solid.

Settings are saved automatically at the end so switch off at any time to abort.
Say 'yes' to every item to just see what is currently set.

Changing 'P2' from Ch4 to Ch5.
Level 1: 3-flash = P
Level 2: 2-flash = P2
Level 3: 1-flash = Servo
Level 4: 5-flash = Ch5


4. DX3:

1. Use full 'brake' to make receiver enter programming mode on startup.
2. Use 3-position Aux channel to make yes/no choices.
