Default DX9 / NX10 Switch Question

Okay you Spektrum transmitter gurus out there, I need some help please.

Is it possible to setup a single 3 position toggle switch to activate 3 separate Aux channels as follows:
Switch position 0 - Aux1 = 100%, Aux2 = 0%, Aux3 = 0%

Switch position 1 - Aux1 = 0%, Aux2 = 100%, Aux3 = 0%

Switch position 2 - Aux1 = 0%, Aux2 = 0%, Aux3 = 100%
If so, how do I do this? A pointer to a previous thread covering it, or a website or video would be most appreciated.

Thank you,

John L.

The first solution I can think of may not be the most elegant, but it works.

I'd set up three different mixes of type "Normal" (not "Curve"). One would be ON>AX1, Rate 100% 0%, Offset 0%, and active only when the selected switch is in position 0. The second would be ON>AX2, same rate and offset, for the same switch but only in position 1. The third would be ON>AX3, same rate and offset, for that same switch again but only position 2.

That covers getting the values to 100% when desired. For 0% the rest of the time, make sure that all three channels are not assigned to any switch inputs. They should all be "Inh" on the Channel Input Config.

It works the same way on either DX9 or NX10.

Thanks flightengr!

I suspected mixes could be the answer, but having never used them before, I wasn't sure.

You're welcome.

Mixes are a good way to force something to happen on a certain channel as in your example.

I've thought about this more and I haven't come up with another way to do it, so I guess that first thought wasn't so bad after all!
