Thanks for that, but a model reset clears out everything to 100% with no
funny mixes enabled etc. While I'm not familiar with the set, I've
downloaded the manual and can't see anything that might be untoward with the
I still wonder if there is some internal stick movement calibration thing
that might be screwed up, hence was looking for a factory defaults reset.
BTW I thought the FF6 had a six model memory, but the menus only present 3.
Is this normal? Perhaps an earlier model?
I've had no more time to look at it again, but perhaps I ought to haul out an
oscilloscope and monitor the analogue pulse train before replacing the SMT
multiplexor. A DVM on the mux output does show a voltage change as I adjust
the ailerons. Not very scientific I know as all channels are mixed up
together, but the fact that I see a similar change as when adjusting the
other sticks might just mean there is something more weird happening.
I'd be glad of any more hints from anybody,
Oh, I forgot to mention:- the setup menu still shows a saved trim offset for
the ailerons. I can't remove it by adjusting the trim tab to zero like I can
for the other channels.
I believe all the setup values are stored in a serial EEPROM device - the
I take it this inability to remove the trim indication from the setup menu is

For anyone still possibly interested in the FF6 transmitter aileron fault
(where the aileron channel didn't work and showed a massive unadjustable
aileron trim offset!) I have now replaced the serial EEPROM and the problem
is fixed. That was a nice cheap solution.
