FrSky S6R RX – Wing Setup How To

This page is in response to two comments on my youtube channel:

Eric/Warren, I hope this is some help to you.

Ill start by saying I am NOT an expert, its just that I have played around with this till I finally got it working the way I expected it to. Do I know if this is the right way – No!       hahahah
But I will say All of my Wings are flying Perfectly using this setup.

My Taranis has the following switch design for using the S6R:
SF = Throttle Cut
SA= Low, Med, High Rates
SB= Up is Stabilize Mode, Middle is OFF, and Down is Auto Level
S1= Pot to control intensity of Stabilize mode (when SB is in up position)

My radio is running Opentx 2.9 the last stable version before the release of Ver3.
I use OpenTx Companion 2.1 and to make things easier here is a link to a compressed copy of my S6R only Wings. You can open this beside your own radio models inside Companion and I believe just drag any one of my models to your radio.
Link: S6R Wings Companion File

This file, if you open any of the models, contains the following info. In case you cant add one of my models to your radio, just create a new and match every page shown here:

And for the mostImportant Part, the Config File for the RX itself. Here are screenshots of the actual settings for the wing at the top of this page:

 

Some Final Notes:

When in Auto Level, I set SA DOWN – this gives me Max Rates and makes it very easy to control the wing, even with AutoLevel active. Typically, for me, S1 is at about 20%, this seems to be enough for even moderate wind.
You MUST do the final setup of the RX – where you power the model, wait till its initialized, they Briefly press the bind button and MOVE ALL STICKS to their extents. (only needs to be done once)
If you don’t, your servo throw will be too small to successfully control the model.

If you look at my youtube channel at the recent video of the Wing Jet from World models, it is also using this exact setup. And if I did not crash that thing, this must be a good setup! hahahah
