How can i push items to Queue only when Queue is empty (using 3D Model)?

I am having trouble making my transporter unload 6 items at a time in queue, only when queue1 is empty. It is unloading one item every time an item leaves queue1.

Here is what i am trying to do:

- Push items to queue2, only when queue2 is empty:

- The transporter should always unload 6 items at a time in Queue1;

- Queue1 will send one item at a time to theTest.2.fsm next process.

You just need to check the Flush contents between batches box in the Queue1 properties window.

This will cause the queue to not accept any more flowitems until the batch has completely left the queue.
