I need help setting up dual elevators with crow on an FF9 please!

Recommended Posts

I thought I knew how to do "everything" on my FF9 but I've run into a problem.I've set up my latest monster 6m glider with dual elevators run on channels 2 and 8 using a mix with channel 2 as master and Aux2 as slave.  Everything works fine including trim but when I set up butterfly the elevator compensation only moves channel 2 - ie one side of the elevator does not move when I operate butterfly.I've switched "link" on and off but it makes no difference (not sure what that does really?)Anyone any idea how to make it work?Thanks Simon - this is pretty urgent cos I wanted to maiden it tomorrow!

Not an expert on Futaba but what about removing elevator compensation from the butterfly setting and using a Prog mix to mix throttle to channel 2?

Why? or should that be 'Y' Unless you need the servos to be independently controlled Y not? You may need to arrange the servos appropriately or use a servo reverser.

Thanks for the suggestions - now sorted through some clever lateral thinking (not mine!) involving turning on the V tail mixing swopping channel 8 and 4 servo connections and mixing channel 4 to 8.Everything works as it should now.  I wanted the servos completely separate for redundancy and geometry reasons and keeping elevator compensation under butterfly means it's easy to adjust it in flight on the FF9. Simon
