By now, just about every RC guy on the planet owns a Blade CX2. Besides being a blast to fly,
it uses Spektrum’s DSM2 technology, meaning it can be flown with any DSM2 transmitter, not
just the one it came with. A while back we showed Spektrum DX7 owners how to setup that
transmitter to fly the CX2. It was clear from the enormous amount of traffic that article received
that more than a few of you who recently bought Spektrum’s DX6i system would be interested
in using that transmitter to fly the CX2 as well.
For many, the DX6i is probably their first computer system as well as their first 2.4GHz system.
If this is you, don’t worry. Programming the DX6i is easy. Plus those programming features let
you fine tune the Blade CX2’s control responses in ways you simply couldn’t with the stock
radio, thus making the CX2 experience even more enjoyable.
Most importantly, have fun and feel free to setup your helicopter to perform the way you want it
to. Getting the feel of the DX6i in control of your CX2 will even give you more confidence when
you move to the more advanced Blade 400 or T-Rex 450SA.
