Mini Arrow Servo Setup Problem

Hi all,

I recently finished building my Mini Arrow (which is the second plane I've ever built) and I'm having trouble setting up the servos. In the build video, Josh connects the servos to the receiver and can control both servos with one channel. I tried doing the same, but I can only control one wing with one channel and the other with a second channel. How do I set it up so that I can control both wings with one channel?

I'm very new to airplanes, so forgive me if I was vague and let me know if I need to explain further. Also, I'm using Spektrum's AR620 receiver and DXS transmitter.

Thanks!

Wesley

You need to set the transmitter to elevon mode.
Right now it sounds like it's in fixed wing mode.
Where you have 4 control surfaces, not the 2 you have on a wing.
Just check on YouTube for how to set specktrum dxs transmitter to elevon mode

Thank you, I'll look into it.

So I've gone around the internet and I've tried putting the transmitter into different modes and used the trims to reverse the channels, but I still am unable to control both servos with one channel. Do I need to buy a different transmitter altogether?

Are you using a y cable??

If I bought the DX6e, is there an elevon mixing setting that I could turn on or off without using software for programming?
Although if you could afford it.. I would get the dx8e or dx8 ... You'll then have enough space for many many more planes & settings for a very long time .
