What happens if you delete the transmitter mix and just drive the channels directly from aileron and elevator? Do they respond correctly (ie one to the elevator and the other to the aileron)?

Slow progress, the pro skin takes a lot of fettling. Wings have now micro ballon fillets, taking up gaps and ailerons just about installed, though I realised I need some more 1mm countersunk, that's not something they use much of in Dubai. Been dusting off my airbrush and ordered some paint from Taylormade. With the wings about 90%, she stood first time on her own, walking next!!IMG_1330.jpeg

Thanks for the advice and offer of help.  In the meantime this is the set up I have which so far refuses to allow elevons to function correctly!

Most of the plug-in modules are JR format, but you have the option of taking the PPM feed from the buddy-box port and feeding something like the Orange DIY module. Keep tabs on this item and when it comes back into stock you might buy one. You then have a set of choices on whether to fit it inside or outside the transmitter, and whether it's in "plug in" or "switched" form, but the actual wiring is very simple. This is how I did the switched version in my Evo:



The only difference for a futaba version would be the pins on the "DIN socket" would be the equivalent pins on the futaba buddybox port. If you'd like to do it then get the module, and when you have it get in touch and I'll talk/guide you through it (it really is very simple).

In principle yopu could do something similar with one of the MultiProtocol Modules - it would be a little more involved, but would have the advantage that you'd have more than just DSM2/DSMx available. Again, if you want to do it give me a shout and I'll happily help you through the project.

I flew them using my old Multiplex Evo and now I fly them using my Horus X10sExpress. With a little effort you could fly them from most futaba Txs as well...

Ok, as a radio ignoramus, I have always assume that I would need to use an appropriate plug in module to do that.  My normal Tx is an 8FG Super with as far as I know no such facility?  I presume therefore that this is not an option for me?
