Quote from: PDR on May 03, 2020, 15:37:59 pmThe issue with the mainstream radios is that they don't separate the "servo" layer from the "controls" layer, so when you do mixing it's never clear whether you're mixing a control input or a channel output. Multiplex changed all that decades ago with the Profi 3000/3100/4000 sets where they took a leaf from full size flight control system design and came up with a more rational architecture. This was simplified for their more mainstream Royal Evo transmitters, but still had the same basic architecture of stick/switch/slider -> control -> Mixer (optional) -> servo output (rx channel)This basic architecture is still there today, and was only developed further when the OpenTx group developed the Taranis (et seq) software. Similar concepts were adopted by other more sophisticated transmitters like the Jeti and (I think) Weatronic ones, but the "mainstream" manufacturers (Futaba, JR, Horizon, Sanwa etc) have stuck to the path of only really supporting their pre-defined model types so they are very easy to set up, but very difficult to do anything unusual.Horses for courses.PDR
