I don't know how well you know the DX6i but I cannot assign switches, all I have is one channel and it is the "Gyro". That means that I cannot use the remote gains?

Hi,
The live data shows that it is working with my Gyro switch but the blue line above the tab does not move when I toggle the switch, is that an issue or can I trust it?

Thanks georgi,
Very informative video but that what I did, I set the tail gain to be on "Gear" and the live data shows that it works (it changes when I toggle the switch) but the blue bar above the tabs does not move with it.

No, it only changes the live data %.

You must set the correct gain or channel end point values in your TX in order to trigger the blue bar to switch banks. This is no different than setting up a switch on your TX to switch a normal tail gyro between rate and head hold. For example, I used to have my cyclic banks switch with my gain channel, so I set one side of the switch to -60% and the other side to 60%

Assigning the channel is only the first part.......you must set the values on that switch to trigger the bank change on the Skookum side.

I am not sure I understand your reply..
I have my "Gyro" switch 0: 65.5% (50% in live data) 1: 61.5% (40% in live data), Is that what you meant?
