Default mcps flight mode issues with DX6

I am having issues getting the flight modes to work correctly on the new mCP S paired with a DX6 transmitter - I can only get stability mode to work.

*** if someone could export their DX6 settings that work it would be greatly appreciated (SPM file)***

Using the manuals CH5 -> GEAR -> SW B mapping the heli is unresponsive.

In "STABILITY" mode the LED is BLUE/RED, the lift stick moves full collective up and down but the motor doesnt engage, right stick cyclic doesn't do anything.

In AGILITY once throttle hold is removed, left stick at mid point the motor is off. Moving the stick >50% the motor will decide to turn on. Collective never appears to go negative.

I then tried disabling CH5 (INH), this resulted in the LED indicating BLUE and I was able to fly in what appears to be STABILITY mode.

I then tried mapping SW D to CH5 so I could change the mode independently of the TX pitch/throttle setting. This is what I observed:

CH5=100: appears to be what puts it in an unknown mode with the blue/red LED on.

CH5=0: blue LED on, flys in stability mode

CH5=-100: blue LED on when left stick >50%, RED when <50%. Motor only engages when left stick >50% (blue LED) even though transmitter monitor screen shows 100% THR.

There seems to be a disagreement between the TX monitor screen and what the heli decides it should do. IE agility mode TX indicating 100%THR and NEG collective but the heli is motor off and collective barely goes negative.

Any help is appreciated.

*I have used the SPM file to program my receiver and have also manually programmed it IAW the manual. Neither seem to work.

I use dx6 with mcps, followed manual and had no problems. Did you know Every time you make change in settings from 'root menu ' (the one that contains channel assign/config, model name, flight mode setup, etc). You must rebind your heli to the tx afterward. Did you rebind after making such change?

Wow I was having the same issues and was going insane!
This is after going through 3 helis! and a DXe transmitter, then a DX6 transmitter, and multiple people at horizon hobby clueless...
I was moving the left stick to the right after turning on because that's when the DXe would beep. but it's GOT to be in the lower right corner with bind button pressed when powering on or else you get both red and blue lights on...
This has been a nightmare for a month and seems to be solved now!
