F-22 Raptor

Could be used? Must be used. The servos will plug into the aileron and elevator channels. If you plug them in, turn it on and when giving up control you get up elevator on both but aileron control gives you opposite control AND when you reverse ailerons gives you correct ailerons but the elevator is reversed, you need to swap the servos connections. Note, that if you reverse the throttle setting in the above situation your elevator will reverse and so will the aileron. It's just a function of the mixing that the servos need to be inserted in the correct position.

The radio can do vtail it's just where do the two servos get plugged into on the receiver, maybe that's my issue. I can not picture how its done. That's the one thing they left out in the build video, how to plug in the servos
 
AWWWKKKKK

I'm sorry I really have you backerds there. You'll want Elevon mode not Vtail mode. Unless you really like to do the roll and pull with seperate sticks. Do able but different.

I'm sorry it didn't register on me that you're talking Vtail. What a jerk. Vtail mixing is rudder elevator. Elevon is Aileron/Elevator.

Even so, v-tail mixing is the same as elevon mixing. A V-tail mixer is the same as an elevon mixer.

V-tail is like elevons at 45º :D

Some generic one that came with my trainer rtf. I think it's going to be too much for my boy so I'm thinking of using the tx/rx from it for the nut ball we are going to build. Was just trying to see if I could use it to fly the f22 until I get one on the 9x types
 
Yea, you'd need an add on mixer like the one I posted for the f-22 but it would work fine for a nutball and of course the 9x will cure all your ills.
 
DUDE!!!! All this time you be wasting????? MANUAL

That switch that says A-nor and Mix is the Elevon mix. Stick your servos in the elevator and Aileron slot, push the switch to MIX and go fly!

And read the manual, never really hurts that much, though I hear that Turnigy 9x one is QUITE the thriller. However, I'm reading MacBeth right now and MAN I wish it was in English!
 
Forgot to add, VIDEO. We wanna see that bad boy fly. You two have fun this weekend. Don't matter if it wrecks. I mean, don't aim for it, but expect it. Just have fun and get ready for the next build.

I totally miss understood what that mix switch was for. The trainer i have has a v tail i can install. me being the noob didnt understand the whole idea of v tail and elevon mixing. I'll be making my battery connections tonight and ill finish the build Saturday at work. Charge a few batteries and see what happens
 
Let me delve into that manual a bit more. Well shoot, can't find anything. I suppose they could have flashed the transmitter for the airplane you were flying to do V-Tail instead of Elevons. Normally I've seen a switch to turn it from one to the other. You might try popping the back off and looking for something inside. You COULD see about swapping the rudder and Elevon connections, don't know if they were kind enough to have separate plugs for each, generally they're just wires in a group from one gimble or the other. Rats, thought we had it figured out.

When does that 9x get in? Mine is due next Wednesday and I ordered it Friday last week. DANG took em a week to ship the darn thing.
