Spektrum™ DXe Change Log
Version 1.3 (Oct. 15, 2015)
- Bug fixed that caused older 6 channel receivers and UMX receivers to output bad servo data.
- Selectable 7 or 9 channel output to support UMX and older 6 channel receivers.
Version 1.2 (Sept. 10, 2015)
- Minor bug fixes in the programming protocol that does not affect typical usage.
- Minor bug fixes in the handling of pitch curves that does not affect typical usage.
- Added stick programming to allow channel reversing without an application.
Stick Programming – Channel Reversing
- Move and hold the left and right gimbals into the upper/inside position.
- Power the DXe on while holding the sticks as shown in step 1. A series of tone will play to indicate the DXe has entered programming mode.
- Return the gimbals to center. The right gimbal is used to select and reverse the desired channels.
- The LED will flash the channel number being adjusted. E.g. 4 flashes for rudder (Ch. 4)
- The LED will flash orange for a channel that is set to Normal direction
- The LED will flash red for a channel that is set to Reverse direction
- Select the channel to adjust by moving the right gimbal to the left or right. Moving the stick to the right increases the channel, moving the stick to the left decreases the channel. A low tone will be heard when the minimum or maximum channel has been reached. The number of flashes will change to indicate the new channel selected.
- Reverse the selected channel by moving the right gimbal up or down. The LED will change color, from orange to red, or red to orange to indicate the new servo direction.
- When all channel reversing is completed as desired, power off the DXe.
- When the DXe is powered on again normally, (sticks not in the position shown above) the DXe will operate normally with the new reversing selections.
- Caution: Verify the throttle direction is correct to prevent injury or damage, keep clear of the motor and propeller and restrain the model during power up.

- Programming interface no longer disabled when acting as a wired trainer slave.

- Orange LED no longer indicates bind status. The LED is always lit except when acting as a wired trainer slave.
- Orange LED behavior during low battery warning altered to improve visibility of red LED.
- Radio updated to control up to 9 channels.
