Having probs with the following.

How do I get the Timer to work on the throttle time rather than "stop watch" sort of thing?

Also I have a "save recovery" function on a BNF and would like to tie it to the trainer switch,can not find how to do this with no TX manual

Press top of roller switch, scroll down until you get to timer, press top of roller switch, scroll down till start is highlighted.Move throttle stick you see Thr stick. Press back button. Test time starts when throttle is over 25% by default.

1) I don't think that you can get the timer working off the throttle on the DSX9.

2) You have to go into DeviceSEL and assign the SNAP SW to the channel.

You can definitely do it on a DSX9 Mk2. Not sure about Mk1.

As I posted incorrect info, thought I should clarify. DSX9 is the JR Transmitter, I misread it for a Spektrum DX9. Sorry

Mine is from 2009 and I can't see a way of having the timer on anything other than the snap switch.

Hi All, I've just acquired a JR DSX9 transmitter, & have a couple of queries about it's use & abilities, hopefully they're not overly inane!

First off, where does the Buddy Lead plug in to the tranny, & is a standard lead usable?

Second, can you assign one of the stick outputs to a switch? Either slider or toggle.

Thanks a lot,

The buddy cord goes in the DSC socket in the back Jeff

And just a note about toggle swiches, they are on or off, so not proportional

The levers are proportional and assignable

Cheers Dennis,

Yes, I'm OK with the toggle/lever differences, but my query was probably a bit mad, but I have a 3 channel leccie fun foamie, with a 4 channele receiver (new Spektrum type) & had a thought (dangerous I know!).

Could I re-assign the redundant aileron out put (joystick) to a "switch", & use it as a flap output? Be pleased to have any thoughts.

Thanks, Jeff.

Mixing, AIL to FLAP on Mix Switch


Mixing allows control input for a channel to affect more than

one channel at a time. Mixing functions support:

• Mixing a channel to another channel.

• Mixing a channel to itself.

• Assigning offset to a channel

• Linking primary to secondary trim.

These mixes are available for each model memory:

• 10 programmable mixes

• Cyclic to Throttle (HELI)

• Swashplate (HELI)

• Elevator to Flap (ACRO)

• Aileron to Rudder (ACRO)

Assigning a Mix to a Switch

If you wish to assign a mix to a switch position:

1. Make sure you are in the desired mix screen.

2. Move the switch you want to assign the mix to.

3. Scroll to the switch position where you want the mix to be


4. Press the scroll wheel to activate the mix. When the box is

filled, the mix is active.

The mix is Active when the box is filled and Inactive when the

box is open. You can assign a mix to be active in multiple switch

positions (0,1 or 2).

Tip: Use Auto Switch Select to select the switch.

CAUTION: Always do a Control Test of your model after

changing mixes.

Back Mixing

Back Mixing applies a mix to all related servos in a wing or tail

type. For example, if you select 2 AIL, 2 FLAP in the Aircraft Type

screen, a mix to one aileron channel affects both aileron servos.

The mix response, however, depends on the aileron channel

included in the mix.

A Back Mix also enables you to use fewer mixes to achieve the

desired response, for example adding roll to a split elevator.


• Rudder to Aileron/Elevator (ACRO).

• Aileron>Rudder (SAIL)

• Aileron>Flap (SAIL)

• Elevator>Flap (SAIL)

• Flap>Elevator (SAIL)

Use Mix1 to stop the aileron stick moving the aileron channel -

AILE->AILE; point-0 = +100; point-6 = -100; SW ON

Use Mix2 to have something else move the aileron channel -

LLVR->AILE; point-0 = -100; point-6 = +100; SW ON

Clever! And simple. Might just work.

Adding flaps to a 3 channel model may not be so straight forward.

Thanks so much Dennis, I really do appreciate the help. I don't think I realised how comprehensive the DSX9's abilities were when I bought it! Looks like I've got lots to learn!

I'll work my way through all you've listed, & see what I can achieve, thanks again,

Regards, Jeff.

P.S. Have you thought about writing a fully understandable user manual for the DSX?

Jeff, that post is part of the manual slightly edited

But are lines of mix that I found useful before

Everything needed from the Tx, makes sense when you aim for a certain outcome
