How can I fix this ?

Are you using two channels for ailerons? Or are you using a Y-connector?

You can't use servo reversing on the TX without causing both servos to reverse.

You could use a servo reverser

If you want, you can rotate the control horn 180º



On the other side of the servo, the control horn will go the other way :)

Hope this helps, if anyone knows a better solution, feel free to post it.

I am using a Y connector. I also thought about rotating a servo for 180 but that way it wouldn't fit in the space for servo. Maybe I could cut 2 wires and reverse them ? There are 3 wires Black, Red and White. Maybe cut red and white and reverse them ?

Do not cut the wires!.
There is a way to reverse the servo inside but i would not recommend anyone to do it.
Replace the other servo so that you have the same model on both, or get a servo reverser as colorex mentioned.
Is it a free flight glider on your avatar or RC?

Thank you guys for suggestions, I think I found the solution. I'll just replace it with a rudder or elevator servo :)
On my avatar is a glider with magnetic steering, F1E :)

You know a lot considering the fact that you don't have a plane!

All free flight classes are beautiful and i have WC-competitions "just around the corner" from where i live (Rinkaby Sweden) but not the E class.
Do you use the same equipment for timers and fuse as the A, B, C and other classes?
Is the magnetic rudder totally mechanical or is it allowed to use electronic amplified control?

I fixed the issue !
Just replaced a "problematic" wing servo with a rudder servo, simple as that :)

@pgerts
Yes, the equipment is pretty much the same as for ABC, we use timers to set the flight time. Launching is by hand, not towing. f1E also requires a slope facing the wind direction because it uses lift created by wind and the slope. Rudder is totally mechanical, it needs powerful neodium magnets to operate properly. As you can see, there are two rudders, front one that moves and rear that is fixed :)
