Help! elevon setup on DX6

#1
OK...I am very frustrated on a elevon setup on a SuperFly. I have a DX6 ,and copied the DX6 program that I used for the FT Alpha that worked great. On the SuperFly (I know, not a FT design) the ailerons are correct, but the elevator is reversed. I reverse them, and the elevator is reversed. I can't have both correct. I am sure it is something simple, but can't figure out what.

There is a choice of "A" and "B" for that function in you setup you could try that.

Look at your RX ports assignment page 1 should be throttle, 2 should be right ail, 3 should be left ail. I am thinking you have your right and left ali plugged into the wrong rx ports, they have to be in this order for them to work properly.

Older radios with old firmware didn't have the A and B option so you had to physically swap the plugs in the receiver with the older radios.

And when you get into the even older radios you better install your servos right other wise you would be ripping them out and remounting them correctly. In fact if you wanted elevons you mounted one servo to operate the elevons on a slider then another servo slid the aileron servo for up and down.

Slider box oh yah, knew about them and glad they are gone.

Thanks, i ended up swapping the plugs so the SuperFly will exactly match my FT Alpha setup. SuperFly is really interesting because it is hot wirred foam. Just like the 2 seat composite Dragonfly I built back in the 80's. That was a 10 year project.
