Thanks for your input,shotglass,but it's still no go.If I clear the sw2 column,the H doesn't change.With the AIL in sw2 column,it appears to be working on the tx,but it's not translating to the model.I get the 50 in the weight column when I throw the AIL switch if I have AIL in both switch columns.

Sorted! 8-)
In Eepe,I needed to set the middle setting to 50 as well.I now have ailerons,rudder,and elevator all switching to dual rates with the AIL dual rate switch.No fumbling 3 switches to get dr's.YaaaaaaaaaY.

Goshdurnit,I've still got it wrong.What i thought were dual rates was actually the expo changing the speed of movement,rather than the actual amount of travel!
What dumb clog sellers like me need are step by step instructions from scratch.Neither the er9x manual,nor the stock skyfly manual are much help here at all.I seemed to remember Bruce was going to do something like that,but I don't recall seeing it.
The only other computer radio i've ever owned was a Futaba FF7,and I only bought that because I couldn't get a standard 6-channel one at the time(1991).The only things I ever set on it were the dual rates and end points,couldn't fathom out the rest,so i happily ignored it.
Unfortunately,this is not an option now,so I have to learn to get on with er9x.

Mmmmm,I may have solved my problem.I had the dual rates for all 3 flying services set to the aileron d/r switch.
I have found this does not work,unless you program it in on another channel,e.g.,a separate mix.
When i set each surface to their own respective d/r switch,the rates worked perfectly.
So to have them all on 1 switch,you need to program those 3 channels onto another free channel,and mix that with the switch you want.I know I'm confusing the heck out of everybody,myself included,but if you watch the you tube video of rogueqd where he mixes in a rotary pot,you get the idea.
As an aside,I have a spare memory position set as a "test"model,to try out anything new,without destroying my actual model settings.Once I find something works the way i want it,i copy the settings to the required model.
Glad I'm at last getting my head around er9x ,and the Eepe program. :D

The AXN has had it's first flights,and I'm rapt with it.It has an incredible speed envelope,from dawdling to "where did it go".Another plus is the one piece construction,just fit the battery and go.
My mate was impressed too,and I've ordered him an AXN,which is on it's way. 8-)
