How to get 8 or more channels using Turnigy TGY-i6S Transmitter

Hi guys.

I am just wondering if you guys can help me to get 8 or more channels of my Turnigy TGY-i6S Transmitter.

I did connect ground, vcc and ppm but only 5 channels is working.

I also tried sbus but no channel worked.

I look forward to hear from you guys.

I cannot say if 8 modes are possible, but 6 are. I dont have your exact hardware, but i think you should be able to make progress with my settings as a starting point. When I get some time, I will post a video of my method for setting up channel mixing for using flight modes with any radio. Send me a reminder if I dont post in the next week or so.

Here are my settings for the Turnigy TGY-i6. These will give you six (6) flight modes using SwC and SwD

Firmware 1.1 9-Jan-2015

Endpoints Ch5 67% 50%

Aux. Channel 5 Source SwC

Aux. Channel 6 Source SwD

Mix #1

Mix is ON

Master Ch6

Slave Ch5

Pos. mix 4%

Neg. mix 50%

Offset +17%

I configured my flight modes as follows:

ArduCopter Flight Modes

  1. Pos Hold

  2. AutoTune

  3. Auto

  4. RTL

  5. RTL

  6. PosHold

The 3 main modes I use are PosHold for flying with the kids, Auto for running missions, and RTL when it’s time to land the bird. With a flip of the 2 position switch, I can go from PosHold to AutoTune, from Auto I can initiate RTL, and from RTL I can pause by going to PosHold.

Happy flying!
