Flysky I6 and CC3D issue

Hello there,

i hope that someone here can me point in the right direction.

I have a re-branded Flysky I6 transmitter - firstly used in a quadcopter called Longing LY-250.

I have bought an Eachine Racer 250 ARF as i have the transmitter and fpv monitor from the first quad-copter. Of course I bought a receiver Flysky IA6.

I flashed the CC3D original software Open Pilot to LibrePilot. Hooked it up and it works. Channel 1,2,3,4 for Roll, Pitch, Throttle and Yaw are working as they should.

Issue description:

But i cannot assign the other channels - 5 and 6 and as well the switches are not working.

In LibrePilot when i am running the transmitter set up everything besides the switches is working so i am only able to use one flight mode even tough i should be able to use the switches.

But my main issue is that i wanted to hook up for example channel 5 to a buzzer - so when i crash in high grass i can turn on the buzzer and i should be able to hopefully find it more easy.

So i can fly but i cannot use the switches which are assigned to channel 5 and 6.

Would you recommend to do a Factory reset on the FLYKSY I6 transmitter? I did not set up anything besides the FAILSAFE. Would this help? Which settings on the transmitter should i write down if they are deleted after factory reset?

Thank you for any tips or pointing me in the right direction.

    Check that you don't have throttle hold or dual rates selected for any of the switches. I am not sure but I think that will use up one of your channels. Also check there is no mix using ch5 and 6 or the switches. I am not sure but that may also confuse librepilot.

    Sorry I not very sure, just throwing some ideas out there...

    Have you gone into the settings of your transmitter and checked what is allocated to channel 5 and 6?

    My i6 I go to "set up" and then "aux channels", choose which switch or knob I want on 5 and 6 (long press of cancel to save when I am happy).

    Then when I have my transmitter on, flight battery plugged into vehicle and cc3d plugged in to pc, librpilot pics up my switches (or pots) when I run transmitter set up wizard.
