" I know for fact all the D/R Expos, and trims are done in the RX."

Ok, how do you adjust all this while in flight?

The only thing you adjust in flight are gains. There are two kinds of gains Conventional gain and heading hold gain. This video explains pretty well explains the procedure.

The D/R , expos, and subtrims are done on the ground with smart device or computer.

That's quite the unit, but it won't work with my systems (9303's)

Maybe someday.

Simple, with the 3 Flight Modes programmed into the RX. Just like doing it in you TX radio, except it is done in RX. You assign one of your 3-position switches on you TX radio for Flight Modes.

There is a down-side or trade-off. In the AR636 it uses one of the 6-channels either Aux or Gear. Easy enough to work around if your plane needs 6-channels to control everything. Just use a 7-channel AR7350 or 9-channel AR9350 receivers.

Alright I did side by side tests with my Eflite Stick in moderate windy conditions. The winds were between 10-12mph with gusts to maybe 15. I flew the first part of the day with AR610 rx bare bones gain with 15-30 expos. It had my nerves on edge since this is only the second day flying the Stick. I then switched back to the AR 636 rx and all I can say is wow! I hate to sound all gitty but it is like night and day even just in what we call mode 2. Even better when landing in these conditions is to switch to mode 3. Using half flaperons I was able to land so gently I didn't even wake the baby on board!

I did discover when setting up flaperons (through many hours of frustration this weekend) that in the TX you must leave channel 6 as "Flap" not set to "Aileron" like you would normally do with standard rx/tx flaperon setup.

I have now successfully set up 2 planes with as3x and will never go back. Even if you don't utilize much heading hold gain, the damping characteristics of as3x are worth the extra money IMO. I tried the 636 on my 78" Beaver but have not compared it to flying with standard RX.
