6 Flight Modes with Spekrtum DX7s



Modification of the settings described in Bruce Jones’ DIY Drones discussion.


Like a few other people who posted on the discussion I could not get these settings to work for my RC. After tweaking some of them I was indeed able to program all 6 flight modes available in Mission Planner.

Modes are mapped to GEAR and FLAPS switches

Contact me at DIY Drones if you are still having trouble or questions. I will do my best to assist in any way I can.

I will also be glad to forward the Spektrum .SPM file for this configuration, drop me a note below or message me on YouTube.

    Hello. Thanks for advice. I can’t download the s file. The link isn’t working and won’t allow me to click it?

      Hey Jesse. Sorry about the download issue. It should be fixed now if you want to try again.

          The settings should translate fine for a quad, but I cannot be sure since I’ve never used it. There may be some more information on the DIY Drones post.

    I would like to see the SPM file. When I tried the examples I can not get all six positions.
    I think I am missing something on the DX7s

      Sorry I did not respond earlier. Check your inbox later today. I will send shortly. As a side note – there are also some “SW Select” settings that you may need to adjust as well. I will list those in the email as well. In addition, as I have just found out with someone else I’ve tried to assist, these settings are for North American Mode 2 configured Spektrums.

        I believe we’ve already communicated about this. Sorry Mauricio, I am a bit late responding to this comment. I actually just got an email about it today.

    Great to see info on a Transmitter other than a t9X. Thanks for the Post!
