Thread: Dual elevator servos and flap mix - AAARRGGGHHH !
18/04/2017 22:17:18

Thanks guys - looks like I cant do what's suggested.

Only aux2 and aux3 show as available channels to use a slaves for elevator and I have used those for the two flap servos and two aileron servos leaving no options. Aux 4 doesnt show as an option anywhere? I need all 3 aux channels to show as options for that to work.

I think I have found a workaround - I have mixed ele and aux4 - that got the two elevators working.

Then I mixed left flap with left ele and right flap with right ele and playing with the % I now get down ele with flaps.

It's a very old DSX9 - maybe thats the problem? Must be 10 years old !!

Thanks for all your help. Maybe time for an upgrade.

Aux 4 switch is inhibited

I tried to mate in the high level menu but the only option to mate with Ele channel is Rudder ?

I havent tried the Flaperon option yet

Thanks for your suggestions

DSX9 - I am using 2 servos - one on each elevator - by having a mix between ELE & AUX4. Works great!

I want to add 5% down elevator at half flap and 10% down at full flap.

I have activated the FLAP SYS in the menus but when I add the 5% and 10% and lower the flaps it only gives the down elevator trim to one elevator! The one on the ELE channel - the AUX4 side doesnt move.

I have tried all sorts inc threats about F#T#B# and swearing at it

Am I missing something or is there a better way of achieving this?

Thanks in advance.

Thread: New Ripmax Jive
20/09/2013 17:36:56

I know this is a pretty old thread but I have just finished putting together a Jive - electric version with the biggest lipo I can physically squeeze in and I am going to have to add 200 grammes of dead weight to the nose to get the CofG in the correct place!!!

Is that normal ?? I havent added anything to the tail and everything is as far forwards as it physically can be.

It seems a shame to have a nice light model then add half the church roof to the nose ??
