Default DX6i flaperon trim problem

Hello my fellow wattheads! I am having some difficulty with getting flaperons trimmed out on a DX6i for my Carbon z yak. It seems that every time I get the Ailerons trimmed out just to my liking, when I switch to flaperons, their all messed up! So then I go to the flap trim, and trim that out, but once I have switched back to aileron, their out of trim. All I can think of is that my TX may not realize that I am using flaperons instead of flaps. I have heard that the it may just be that my DX6i will not do what I am trying to do, and that I may just need to buy a DX7 or a DX8. Any advise is very much appreciated!

Not familiar with the commands on the DX6i, but my DX7's have trims and sub trims on its mixes. The DX7 requires that you use either mix 5 or mix 6 for aileron or elevator mixes. The mixes 1-5 do not include trim commands.

Hmm, the DX6i just has two mixes, and I don't think you can trim on either one of them. Sounds like I may just need to step up and buy the DX8. Thanks very much for the reply!

Or, take a look at the new Spektrum DX7s, to be released in June 2011.

Wow! That thing looks great! Like a DX8 without the 8th channel . If all else fails on my DX6i, I will pick one up for sure. I Hope horrizon doesnt do their infamous deed of pushing the release dates back several months of what they originally said, because I cant really fly my yak again untill I get those flaps in trim .
