I normally fly Futaba Peter, but for these mico models there is very little choice but "the "S" word"!!

Quote from: PDR on November 30, 2020, 16:40:16 pmTo other responders:
You are missing the point. If the unit is doing any mixing then you would expect it to move differentially for ailerons but in the same direction for elevator, or vice-versa. This is moving both surfaces in the same direction for both elevator AND aileron, which doesn't make sense.

To Meri:
These units are normally set for rudder and elevator control so the internal servos are on channels 3 and 4. Are you sure your transmitter is set to mix outputs 3 and 4 rather than 2 and 3? (I never know whether the mixing is at the control level or the output channel on these mickey-mouse radios - at least on an Mpx or OTx one you know what you're actually mixing!!)

Thanks I will take a look tomorrow and see what happens with using other servo connections on the board (there are 5 in all) and rudder
PDR.  I started by selecting "Delta wing" assuming possibly wrongly that would give me elevons - I then tried reversing the servos to no effect!!

No, neither did i see the "L" plates on the car, looking at all the crashes that he has had, isn't it about time he passed his driving test ?.

 Glad that he got out alive, I watched it on live and it frightened the s**t out of me,,

With a lot of radios just inverse the aileron servos, Ie, on Futaba the 1 and 5,,


 Ps, you also get this problem on flying wings,,

Try reversing the direction of one of servos in the elevator "sense".

Cars & motorsport / Grosjean's crash

Did anyone else notice that before they moved the wrecked safety cell the team came along and carefully put the Energy Store* into a big bucket of saline?

Lipo safety procedures on a bigger scale...

* The Energy Store is a huge Lipo that's good for 160bhp for over 30 seconds

Go into "mixing"
Select P1... or any available programmable mixer.
Select "Rud" and mix it with "Ail".

However, if you currently have the rudder working on the aileron stick, which would be usual for a primary function, mix "Ail" with "Rud".
