Landing Gear


New member
I have just downloaded RealFlight Evolution and I am using it with my Spektrum DX6i and a dongle that I found on Amazon, how do I get the landing gear to retract??? Can find on controller setup where to set up that feature?

To make it work from the DX6i, you first need to associate the switch you're using for gear with a radio channel (probably the Gear channel).

Your dongle will map that radio channel to a Windows game controller input.

Finally, on the RealFlight side you need to make sure that the Controller Profile has that particular game controller input mapped to RealFlight channel 7 "Smoke". (Many of the models use that Smoke channel to control the landing gear.)

If that dongle is a Spektrum WS1000 or WS2000, then the writeup I have here will help quite a bit. If it's a different dongle, then the writeup will help show you what to do, but the exact game controller inputs may vary.
