Thread: Lemon Stabiliser (v4) and DX7 (2nd gen.)

Hi Steve, I like the look of your possible solution, sounds like it has all the features I need. Can I assume this uses the Glider mode as you suggested in your earlier post? It also shouldn’t mess up the stabiliser switching on the Gear channel. Thanks I’ll try it. Cheers, RogerW

Hi Guys, thanks for the comments.

The transmitter and receiver type are in the title.

I want to check out the Lemon Stabiliser because the FunCub is stable so that I can learn how it may work with unstable planes.

Being a high wing aircraft I believe the Cub will benefit from aileron differential as per the build instructions.

I am trying to program dual aileron and separate flaps with a four servo wing.

The Ailerons are on AIL and AUX1, the Flaps (on a Y lead) are on AUX2, the Gear channel has the BEC connected (power only). I'm using a BEC because I have experienced brown-outs at our field with four servo models and this one has six servos.

According to the Lemon instructions on RC Groups this should be possible, but the Spektrum DX7 doesn't seem to want to play ball and offer me Flap settings with the Flaps on AUX2. The Stabilizer also cannot be switched in this configuration.

I may have to revert to a Y-lead on the Ailerons in order to get flaps (on AUX1) AND control the Stabiliser ON/OFF with the Gear channel, but I just wanted to check if others had been this way before and solved the problem.

Thanks for your comments anyway.

Anyone tried connecting the Lemon Stabiliser and programming flaps?

I'm trying to program flaps on my FunCub when using Dual Ailerons (needs differential). I'm trying to use Aux2 for the flaps. Aircraft Type = dual ailerons allows the Gear channel to operate the Stabiliser (Green LED only), but provides no flap function. But when I select Aircraft type = Dual aileron + one flap to give flap function, the Gear channel refuses to switch the stabiliser! I might add that I need the BEC plugged into the Gear channel as this is the only empty socket.. I guess I may need to reassign channels somehow but I'm on the limit of my programming ability here!

Anyone any ideas please, I'm struggling?

Cheers, RogerW
