Is it possible using a Spektrum DX9, also DX10t to, via a switch to have 10% up elevator for hand launching a model.
You can do it by using the flt mode and set it up there.
Or make a mix
aux 3 >elev
Then set the switch you want
And set the elevator as you want
As I understand your question:
You want to give it a bit of down elevator when using the motor...
Just Go to mixes
Set it to
Motor>elevator and adjust it with removed prop
(Or a external rx battery instead of the esc, so the motor don't run
Normally 1-2 mm down will do it..
Just get a Lemon LM0052
And get a satellit for it
And then you are flying
They also have a LM0053U
It is without the Amp and battery pack plugs, a bit cheaper for gliders without motor..
I have 3 in some of my gliders and they are working great, much cheaper and have better telemetri range than Spektrum telemetri recivers

Soren: thank you for your help.
about your instructions on vario/altitude: tried, and have some questions:
1-the lift report shows ft/s and not sec
2-same for sink. i think this is what you meant, right?
3-when checking the screen for altitude and the other for vario, both read 'altitude'
but i hear nothing about vario. i expected to hear tones.
4-about the switch for vario: 1 position is for... tones?
5-and the other for...(i would like to hear altitude)
thanks again for your help.
You can switch of the tones on vario but not the altitude announcement when first set.
And you must move the glider up to get the tone, Normally just wave it up and down should do it.

about the video on the glider: is it by you? if so, could you please provide all the data on it?
same as at the other post: radio, receiver, esc, battery, motor,
Yes it's my glider
The glider is a:
Arthobby Silent 3,4 meter
DX9/ Ar8000+ TM1000 and vario gauge, Mega motor (can't remember the number) and folding prop, 40 amp esc, 1800 3 cell batt.

now, if that is you who is flying the plane, could you provide details on it? just to make sure: the radio is the DX6G3, right? and the receiver? motor? battery? esc? prop?
DX9/ Ar8000+ TM1000 and vario gauge, Arthobby Silent 3,4 m, ? Mega motor + folding prop, 40 amp esc, 1800 3 cell batt.
I also have altitude report every 10 sec,
Same way as above
press 2 x altitude
Status report 10 sec

i think i have to be more specific. to start, i need yo learn how to get vario (tones) on lets say switch 3. if any1 has a video, great. if not, step by step can do.
1 press scroll
2 press telemetri
3 auto config
4 press vario 2 times
My set up is:
report delay 1/4 sec
lift report + 0,2 sec
sink report -5 .0 sec (in that way the you don't have the sink sound all the time)
switch ( you just move the one you want)
and make one of the 0 or 1 black

telemetry with voice-but no comprehensive manual
there is now voice with telemetry so you dont have to take your eyes away from the model.
i got a DX6G3 (horizon) that could be used with a lemon 0052 receiver with telemetry (yes, the brand is "lemon" so i can hear alarms of low volts at the battery model, and other data. (sounds great, isn't it?)
problem is, the manual does not explain exactly how to do this, and when contacting the threads that supposedly are to help, even the 'experts' from the company that nose in don't provide the exact details and talk you down for asking such basic questions. so it is that there are no instructions for the masses, just for experts.
the reason i came here is to see if there is someone that has this radio and perhaps can help me.
i understand that the radios on this series have the same program so anyone who owns a radio DXwhatever could be of help too.

Just try the different screens and play

|Thread: reflex and camber|
Be sure it is set up as a glider
And then you set in in flt mode, Camber preset.

Good video for a novice like me, I'll have to watch your control setup video again as I've forgot what the thermal mode is Should I be be able to do this with HK P2000 or is it heavier than your Arthobby ?
A P2000 is not the best thermal glider, but on a good day it will thermal.
The thermal record for the P2000 in my club is 35 min. 40 sec. so give it a go
Just keep the speed down to just over the stall speed,
