Default spektrum dx6i help

I have the blade msr,and dx5e when i use the dx5i the heli flys fast and much better than with the stock controller.the other day i bought the dx6i and the msr is slower.so i binded the msr back to the dx5e and the msr was fast again.what am i missing,why is does the msr slow down with the dx6i.

Channel 5 will make the MSR work in high rate or low rate mode. Try the gear switch on the top upper left of the transmitter. I think flipping it towards you will give the full rate (making the MSR move quicker).

You could also have the dx6i programmed to slow it down, but that is unlikely if you haven't changed the programming.

I never knew that. Time to do some experimenting! Thanks for the info!

No kidding, huh?

I have a Dxi7 and find the manual was written by propeller-heads, not modelers.

Horizon Hobby really NEEDS to re-write that manual. They are getting a lot of bad press about their Dx6 and Dx7 documentation.

Try the Blade sr. Use it with the tx it comes with and it is very user friendly and easy to fly. Then when you get good bind it to your dx6i and it transforms into a 3d heli.
