Solved What should I change my throttle stick programming to for my flying wing?

I haven't flown a slope style plane like that one before, but I think the theory is that the throttle should act as a spoiler, so in this case applying additional up elevon mixed in with the aileron/elevator inputs.

@thenated0g or @Piotrsko I think you guys are both "master slopers" - can you confirm or straighten me out on this?

The plane that I am flying I have modified to fit a motor, sorry about not clarifying that.

By protocol I mean your transmitter type.
Frsky, Spektrum, Futaba, Gaupner

Your motor and ESC will have no bearing on how you mix your transmitter. Regarding an actual throttle stick programming, Ive not seen a program or mix set up on the throttle.

Although...... Some guys do add camber or reflex even elevator a mix based on throttle position is that what you mean?

There is a need to set up an elevon mix on a flying wing.
I only fly Frsky (Taranis Qx7) so I dont know how the other brands/manufacturers/protocols actually handle the mix for flying wings.

The below video is spot on for the OpenTx protocol.

Rocky boy is right, i stand corrected (ive seen in a simulator (picasim)) some gliders/slope planes have an air break/camber mix in lieu of a motor.
Is that what you mean by throttle stick programming?

To clarify I am using Turnigy and I have also modified the model to fit a motor.
I don't have any Turnigy transmitters to be able to walk you through the procedure - do you have the manual for your specific transmitter model? Most Turnigy radios have the throttle output assigned to a specific channel that you can't modify - you just need to plug the ESC into the right receiver channel. If you don't have the manual, you can still probably figure it out "trial and error" style.
