Flaperon setup

#1
Hey guys.
Having trouble setting up the flaperon mod on my carbon cub s and a F5J glider.
When I unplug the y cable and then replug into aileron and aux 1 the control surface on aux1 doesn’t move but I believe there’s power there.
Have tried 2 different Spektrum receivers and 2 different Spektrum transmitters same result.
Channel assign seems correct.
Lost on me.
Any help please
Thanks

if used cable extensions, control your connections, Found many times, one connection eg wasnt ok, (pushed hard enough together) or one turned wrong way.

This might be right but I tried several times with different receivers and transmitters with the same result don’t know if I could stuff it up that many time lol I didn’t fluke it once?

Tell us what your channel assignment is.
Are you using a build in flaperon mix or a custom mix in your Tx?

1 throttle
2 right ail 1
3 elevator
4 rudder
5 gear
6 left ail 1
Then aux 234

Built in flaperon mix in the tx. A Spektrum DX9
Also tried it with an old tx Spektrum DX6e and 2 different Spektrum receivers??

The channel assignment looks good to me.

Go to the Monitor page on the Tx & see if the Aux channel is responding to the aileron input.
If it's not responding, something is missing to put the Tx in Flaperon mode.
If it is responding, something else is wrong, maybe a bad servo lead or connection somewhere.

You cannot use a Y cable for flaperons each servo has to have it`s own wire running to the receiver.
