Horizon Hobby SPEKTRUM DX6i Transmitter
Physical Transmitter Adjustments
Transmitter Mode Conversion
You can change transmitter modes between Mode 1 and Mode 2. This conversion requires both a
programming and a mechanical change.
Programming set up:
1. Power on the transmitter.
2. Press the roller, scroll to Setup List and press the roller to access the Setup List.
3. Select Copy/Reset in the Setup List. When the Copy/Reset menu screen opens, select Reset.
4. Move the Aileron D/R switch forward and backward FOUR TIMES. A screen will display Mode 1 and Mode 2.
5. Select the desired mode.
6. After you change the transmitter Mode in the Setup List, you will need to make
mechanical changes to the transmitter gimbals.
CAUTION: Always power off the transmitter and remove the batteries before adjusting stick tension
or friction straps. Not doing so could result in property damage or injury.
Mechanical Conversion:
Mechanical conversion is required to change between Modes 1 and 2. The mechanical conversion
consists of the following steps:
• Removing the
• Changing the
• Adjust the Elevator
rear case
Throttle Ratchet
Centering Screw
Removing the Rear Case:
1. Power off the transmitter and remove the transmitter batteries.
2. Remove the six Phillips head screws that secure the rear transmitter case half.
3. Put the transmitter face down on a piece of foam or a towel and remove the rear case.
Throttle Friction Straps
CAUTION: Use care to not pull or disconnect any of the wires attached to the back
transmitter half.
Changing the Throttle Ratchet:
1. Locate the silver throttle friction straps on both gimbals.
2. To change the throttle ratchet, loosen the throttle strap so it does not touch the throttle gimbal. Tighten the
opposite throttle strap to engage the desired throttle ratchet.
Adjusting the Elevator Centering Screw:
When changing between Modes 1 and 2, you must adjust the elevator centering screw.
1. Hold the Elevator or Throttle stick in the full up or full down position when you are adjusting the elevator
centering screw. Holding the gimbal stick reduces the load on the elevator centering mechanism and makes
it easier to adjust the centering screw.
2. Locate the gimbal where the elevator centering spring is engaged. Use a Phillips screwdriver to tighten the
elevator centering screw. Tightening the screw will disengage the centering spring.
3. Using a Phillips screwdriver, loosen the opposite elevator centering screw until the lever engages.
Elevator Centering
Stick Tension
Adjustment Screws
Adjust Stick Tension
With the rear of the transmitter case off you can adjust the stick tension.
1. Locate the gimbal tension adjustment screws located on each axis of each gimbal. Turn the desired
screws a small amount using a small Phillips screwdriver.
2. Locate the silver throttle friction straps on the throttle gimbal. One strap engages a serrated section on
the gimbal for a ratcheted throttle, while the other strap engages the smooth section on the gimbal.
Use a small Phillips screwdriver to tighten or loosen the screw for the friction strap.
NOTICE: Always do a test of stick tension while turning these screws to ensure stick tension is not too
loose or too tight. Tightening a screw too much can damage a spring. Loosening a screw too much can let a
spring fall off and cause a short-circuit in the transmitter.
Re-assembling the Transmitter
1. Put the rear of the transmitter case on, taking care to not pinch any wires.
2. Install and tighten the six Phillips screws.
3. Reinstall the batteries.
IMPORTANT: Your Spektrum DX6i transmitter includes 4 AA Alkaline batteries to power the transmitter. If you wish to use rechargeable batteries in your transmitter, Spektrum offers
optional rechargeable AA batteries (SPM9527) and a charger (SPM9551). NEVER attempt to charge alkaline batteries.
