Hi everyone,

 

I'm trying to setup flaperons on my DX6i with the AR6200, been messing around all day, but can't get it to work. Read several forum posts here and there but still no luck.

 

I have dual aileron which work good and all others (rudder, elevator) also work correct.

 

I now have:

Left Aileron in channel AUX1

Right Aleron in channel AILE

 

Now I think I have to do something with the MIX1 and maybe MIX2, but I have no idea.

 

Is there anyone that can point out how to setup Flaperons?

 

Thanks!!

Hi Steven,
 
Go to Adjust list, then select Flaps. Set Land to, say 50%. You may need to set a bit of elevator if it balloons when flaps deployed. Adjust Flaps % to what you're happy with.
Then go to Mix 1.
Set Aile > Flap mix and Activate
Leave Rates as 0%
Set Sw to Flap, Trim to Activate.
 
In the Setup List, you should already have, under Wingtailmix, Dualaile set to Activate..
 
That's how the flaperons in my Phoenix Rainbow are setup. I haven't had any tip-stall tendencies show up but, depending on the model, it should be given some consideration.
Watch out for total throw for servo-binding and you may want to put some differential in, ie more up aileron than down.
 
When I want the flaperons, all I have to do is throw the Flaps switch.
 
Come back if you have any more problems,
 
Pete
